Recommended Posts

any one have a pattern for a draw down strap?  or at least dimensions?  i could buy one but figured i might as well make one.

There is one in the Stohlman saddle-making book Vol 1, if you have it. I could scan the page if no one has one handy to send. -John

I think the book talks about two different widths for the strap.  I prefer the narrower version and use another piece shown at the top of the photo to distribute the pressure. I rarely use the wider strap.
