  3. Hello - We recently acquired a large Japanese box containing vintage tools some of which we believe may be for leather working. We would be most grateful for any comments about their use. We in particular are unsure what the brass "pricking tool " is used for ( if it is such,) as it is seems too thin to be a punch. The box also contained 2 metal frames which we wondered whether they may be for stretching pelts/hides ? We grouped togther all the other tools that we couldn't identify and wonder whether these too have leather working associations. By way of background we believe that the contents of the box are 50 years plus and the other tools included in the box were saws , planes and metal blacksmith items such as a vice and varius tin snips. My wife and I are retired and enjoy doing up old tools as a hobby and returning them to circulation. Any help woud be greatly appreciated. Bob and Bryony
  4. Here is how I made an excellent straight edge, I hope you like it! It creates a straight edge that *will not move* while you are cutting along the edge. You put the straight edge in the corner vise and tighten the jaws after you put the leather to cut between the edge and the leather. TOOLS: 4 needed 1. Dresser or other heavy stable table/stand with a lip 2. Corner Vise Clamp (used in woodworking to clamp 2 pieces of a corner while gluing together.) 3. Retail store shelf bracket *standard* (they hold the brackets the shelfs rest on) 4. Cutting board HOW 1. Open the drawer and screw the Vise Clamp to the underside of the top of the dresser, stand, etc. 2. Put the cutting board against the clamp, completely tighten the 1st clamp to lock the board to the top of the dresser. It then locks the cutting board in place. 3. Insert the shelving standard between the jaws, tighten to where it is just slightly loose enough to raise or lower as needed. 4. Insert leather, push straight edge down to the leather so it is tight, and tighten the jaws all the way so it will not move. 5. Cut away! Total cost, since I buy everything usually at garage sales and auctions: 1. Shelving standard: $0.50 2. Corner Vise Clamp: $4.00 3. Dresser: left by roomate: $0 4. Cutting board: $5 Total cost: $9.50 Pictures show all.

  6. Hey, I am trying to buy a proper Draw Gauge online. Quality is the most important thing to me, and I want to get the best return for my money. Is "Weaver Leathercraft" a good website to buy from? Thanks for your help, Karl
  7. Does anyone have any tips for getting really tight/ uniform flower centers using a very small seeder? I've had OK luck with it but I see some other craftsman absolutely killing it on this. Is this an actual one hit style of stamp or is it a series of multiple hits on a "one seed" style seeder. How do you get the layout so uniform especially in such a small space as a flower center? Start in the center and work your way out or vice versa? Any tips or tricks are much appreciated.
  8. Hi everyone! Awhile back I purchased a Barry King small awl handle and awl blade. The awl handle is the small sized collet style with the flat side. The blade is the size 1 blade. The issue I'm having is the blade slips in the collet regardless of how tight I get the hex nut. I'm using the smaller end of the collet and the blade is super tight (difficult to insert by hand) but slips when I try to use it. I'm familiar with collets (Dremel tools, lathes, mills, pin vices, exacto knives etc.) what am I doing wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  9. Put my hand up at an auction last week, bought 4 tons of leather from a Leather Factory in Lynn Ma that made high fashion handbags, portfolios and other leather goods for the travel and fashion industry. Really an amazing collection of Weights, tanning methods colors and textures. Small scraps to whole hides, various species. I am not an expert in identifying leather so if you are in the area please bring your expertise and come check it out. Prices as low as $2 per pound and $2 to $7 per square foot depending on weight finish and condition. When I say some thing for everybody I am not exaggerating. Nubec, latigo, prints, raw, oil, colors chrome etc. You can see photos and message me here at FB market place. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/386611275340297 or call or txt at 6o3 fivefive3 l49five
  10. Hi, I have a disability with my left hand. I have for the last 2 years or so tried to just keep working and hope that I would beat it. It has actually gotten worse and is now, trying to hold tools in that hand has just gotten to hard. I know that those things aren't being made anymore. I am putting some feelers out there to see if there are any used ones available. Thanks for the help. Randy

  12. There have been a few threads about cutting costs or getting stuff cheap but they were by and for the US cousins so I thought I'd start one for the UK-ers I can't see anywhere else but here to run the thread 1. Granite chopping board. From Home Bargains = £4.99, exactly the same one sold by Argos is £9.99. Size is 40 x 30 x 1.3 cm. It may be thin but I've been stamping on it and it hasn't cracked yet. Certainly good enough for edge skiving if you don't want to chance the stamping on it 2. Next we visit the Poundland shop, so all these items cost.... ?? How much? anyone? Bueller? UHU glue. Look for the solid box. There is one with a window in the box, that tube is far smaller [half the contents afair]. Its a good contact glue, Easy to apply because it is a tube - and in my case you don't waste a load cos the rest of the glue in the tin has solidified. UHU is also available at some Home Bargains for... 99p a tube. Home Bargains sells a Bostick type glue in their own brand name; its good too, at £1 a tube. 3. Stainless steel roasting tin. I use these for dip dyeing. Holds enough dye and easy clean up 4. Compartment storage box, About 20 x 20 x 4cm. Divided up into twelve 5 x 5cm and one 10 x 10cm sections. Many of the partitions are removable making the areas longer [or wider, but not both ways]. Handy for keeping and segregating small things like small rivets, Chicago screws or Sam Browne buttons 5, Black box with lid.This one is just under the size of half of a folding crate. I throw scraps into a number of these, then sort out the stuff that can be used from the real waste. I make board games so any piece from which I can punch a 6mm disc is still good for me 6. Need to see better close up? I wear reading glasses. Available in powers from 1 D to 4 D. I have several in 2, 2.5, 3 and 3.5 powers for various tasks [not all leather work] They're cheap enough to have several pairs kicking around. My eye specialist [I can't spell her fancy title!] put a pair on one of her machines and she said the lenses were fine; almost as good as the ones she gets for customers. 7. A new style of reading glass on the block. With LED lights, one each side. I'm still checking these out. In low light they help but if you have bright working lights they don't seem to make much difference. These cost me £1.09 from China via ebay 8. Back home - to Home Bargains actually. A medium sized clear storage box, £1.69. I keep things that I use more frequently in these as I can see the contents better 9. At many discount stores; small spring clamps, usually about £1 to £1.50 for six or eight. Their jaws will mark leather so I use lolly sticks between the jaws and the leather, both sides. Not only does this prevent the leather from getting marked but it spreads the clamping force. And, yes occasionally the stick will leave a flat impression on the leather but it never looks bad. Normal lolly sticks at The Works; 50 for £1, or some craft stores 100 for £1, and wide sticks; 100 for about £1.50 Don't use the coloured sticks; the colour comes out and will stain the leather, it even stained some chrome tanned upholstery leather I have. 10 Another bargain. I'm currently 'remodeling' [ahem....clearing out, tidying, sorting the mess of, or as we say here 'redding it out' ] the room I do leather work in. I went to Homebase to look for another tool box and got this; £40, discounted from £160. It was a stock clearance sale. It pays just to keep yours eyes and ears open. I already had two drawer units [the top bit of this] from Halfords for my tools. Sometimes they discount the tool boxes too. Right, that's all from me for now. Over to youse.........
  13. Hi, how are you? I recently acquired an Osborne 85 Krebs style splitter in not so pretty but working condition. I cleaned it up a little and now I'm working on dialing it in. I'm wondering if any of you kind people have any tips, tricks, or advice for me. I got lucky and the previous owner took very good care of the blade so that's one major factor I don't think I have to worry about. This is my first experience using a splitter at all so I'd appreciate any response. For example, how much spring tension should be in the top roller? How much of a blade gap should I be going for? How far out should the bottom roller be from the blade? Did you replace any adjusting screws to improve performance? I'm grateful for any and all replies.
  14. I've just had a look at this supplier https://www.gandmtools.co.uk They have various new old stock knives and other items, mostly by George Barnsley, a traditional Sheffield tool maker who ceased trading several years ago They include 'half moon knife' for £25 plus VAT - well worth buying

  18. Morning leatherworkers, I bet you have all been asked this question before. I'm about to start adventure in leather craft, I'm needing good quality leather tools to start making leather wallet, wallet lanyards, belts and bags. Not really 100% sure on the tools required! I know I will need things like pricking iron but I'm so confused about sizes etc, and other tools required. My grandfather done a lot of leather work but is unfortunately not around anymore to share his knowledge and all his tools are unsalvageable. It would be great if you could help, I don't have a bottomless pit of money. But I do understand it's worth buying good quality tools. I'm based in the UK, so any suggestions on suppliers would be great also. Thanks Paul
  19. Hello everyone I'm brand spanking new to leatherwork, having only ever made stuff (bags & tool rolls) out of canvas up until now. I'd like to progress into leather; making tool rolls and ditty bags to compliment my canvas ones. I'd also like to start making belts too. As with every other newbie I'm totally confused about the tools out there and what I need / don't need. I've read forum posts here, checked out websites and watched YouTube and have a rough idea of the basics. However, I also have a lot of questions and hope to find answer here. I understand the opinion of 'Buy The Best Tools You Can Afford', but I'm not 100% committed to the cause yet, so feel that shopping at Tandy here in the UK could be a good place to start. I read both good and bad things regarding Tandy, but to me the prices are affordable and the convenience of using one shop instead of sourcing tools from all over the world is preferable at this time. Am I making an error with this idea? I'm favouring the use of Tandy's Craftool Pro Stitching Chisels. I like the idea of punching neat, clean holes straight through the leather ready for stitching (and using a stitching awl for single holes in the corners). They had a favourable review from Armitage Leather so think they'll suit me just fine. My questions here are: If I use wing dividers to score a line in the leather do I really need a dedicated adjustable groover as well? Is it a handy enough tool to use elsewhere in projects? If I use a smooth-faced hammer / cobbler's hammer on the stitches afterwards do I need an overstitch wheel? Should I get a diamond awl as well? Just in case? I can't quite justify spending money of strap end punches, even though I can really see the benefit of them; quick, clean cuts every time! I'm thinking of using templates, just for now, instead. Would a head knife be the best choice in cutting the leather, or could I get away with a Stanley knife / box cutter? I think that's the main questions I have for now. Thanks for taking your time to read this far. All the best. Pic attached in the kind of thing I make now and would like to try in leather.

    Good tools?

    We aren't there yet, but my wife and I are considering doing hand tooling, possibly expanding what we offer. Naturally when I think of leather tools, first though is Tandy. But over the years, needing a thing here and there, I have found that some of Tandy's stuff is good, exactly what I needed. But then I'll some other thing and it's near worthless. Totally hit or miss. No telling what I'll get. Who is a supplier and/or manufacturer of quality leather tools, no screwing around? I would especially be interested in names of tool manufacturers so I know who I'm actually looking for regardless of who supplies it.
  22. My husband wants to get into beginner leather working I want to get him his basic supplies for Christmas. Can anyone help me with a list of what he needs
  23. Restoration and sharpening of C.S Osborne No. 86 splitter
