Gymnast posted a topic in How Do I Do That?I have got a few projects, that include heavy webbing, and I like to use a heavyer thread, than my sewing machine can handle. What is the best way? So I consider using: 1) Saddle stich. Then I use make the hole with an awl first. However I still think it can be hard to pull the needles through, and you may penetrade a tread with the needle. 2) Use a Speedy Stitcher or Meyer Sewing Awl. In this case I need to use needles with no leather point, because they can cut the webbing. I don't think you can buy needles for the Meyer Sewing Awl without a diamon point. And then you will have to grind the point to get rit of the sharp edges of the needle. 3) Use a jerk Needle (I have seen them with more names: hook needle, Union lock needle, Mckay needle). I have got a cheep one from china: Cheep jerk needle ebay I am not that satisfied. The handle is small. The needles have leather point and the sharp edge on the hook tends to catch webbing fibres when I pull the needle out. I look forward for your help on what to do.

Is it possible to sew mil-spec nylon webbing to 10-12oz english bridle leather by hand? If so how do I go about it and what needles and thread would be best? I'm also looking into sewing machines, is a Cobra 4 too much for what I'm trying to do?
I have an 8oz veg tan utility strap project in the design phase and think the addition of a webbing liner to one section of the strap will do me good but I don't know where to start with that. I did a search and didn't narrow it down but I think it would be smart to avoid using pricking/stitching irons to keep from cutting across the webbing fibers so that's where I'm at now - how to and what to use for making my stitching holes? I haven't tried it yet but thought that cementing the webbing down first would help, then starting from the webbing side I could get away with using a small but very sharp scratch awl after marking the stitch spacing on the webbing with a fine marker. The hope is the awl would get through the webbing without butchering it too badly and I would use the same or another awl to open up the hole in the leather side so I can get my needles through. And that brings to my next thoughts - what SPI should I use and what needle/thread? Thanks for you thoughts. EDIT - I plan to use webbing that's on the thinner side. I'm looking at the tightly woven stuff that's almost shiny looking, not the thicker, more coarse looking stuff I usually see on dog collars or cheesy laptops begs etc.
