Saddle kit

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a saddle tree for a very old Tandy kit. This kit came with a wood saddle tree. I have all the leather pieces, but tree cannot be found anywhere. Anyone have any ideas ?

The first thing I would suggest is to find out what style of saddle it is (Roper, etc.), the seat size, and then do an internet search for saddle trees that fit your needs.  There is maker of saddle trees in Idaho (can't remember their name) and they do nothing but make trees for just about everything you can think of; they typically maintain stock for standard styles and seat sizes and also do custom work when necessary to meet a customers needs.

Looks like it's for a half size saddle.  I have a ralide tree that might work.  I'm busy tomorrow, but if you are interested, I can get tree measurements on Saturday.  It is a model that isn't available anymore.

What’s a saddle lamp kit? 

A small, decorative saddle shape for a lamp?

or is the horn shaped like a old time lamp?

A google search "leather saddle lamp" turned up these, plus several others.

Seems like the trees go missing, 

A search for "RANCHO SADDLE LAMP KIT" turns up some interesting photos as well.
