Default Looking for some leather.

I am starting to mess around with leathersmithing and could use some leather \ scraps if anyone has any to sell.


Thanks,


Mark

One can never have enough guns or ammo.

Payments I can do when buying: I can do Paypal, I eat any fees or a personal check you hold item until it clears. I do not do bank checks or postal orders. Way too hard for me to get in to do them.

Go to you closest Tandy Leather store and buy any amount you want.

Never heard of a "leathersmith" though. What is that?

Just for the asking at a local upholstery shop, I got several shopping bags full of leather scraps. Basically a lifetime supply of slingshot pouches absolutely free at the local upholstery shop. Might be worth a shot.

the regional tandy warehouse is just up the street here.
years back they used to have a big box full of "scraps"
and trimmings, but the last time i went in for some thread
or needles or whatever it was i found that they no longer
had that bargain box.
i suppose it cost them too many sales of full sides when
folks like me bought too many cheap usable pieces.
sad part is they probably cut it up and toss it instead of
making a few bucks off of it.

I'm looking for a small piece of rawhide for my wife to make a holster for my NAA Ranger II.
So far no luck. I haven't tried the muzzle loading sites yet though.

I used to buy leather at a outlet leather store in El Paso, TX. Donít remember the name but a quick google so get some hits. It was not a chain, but local.

Good idea. I did not even think about an upholstery shop. I will give them a call tomorrow.

I tried Track of the Wolf, and Dixie gun works and no luck on Rawhide.

Sorry about hijacking the thread.
