Use a worn out chainsaw round file, just snap it off at about 6" and put the rest in with your hunting knife or fire starting kit, waste not, want not!I broke down and made a trip to the Tandy leather and after seeing some of the prices and availability on tools I am going to do like Frodo and make a few tool items.
What do you use to round the corners on smaller items?
I tried to find something in the 3/8 to 1/2 " dia. Range but the smallest arc cutter was 5/8" and $65 !!!
Later today I am going to build a leather awl, I'll start with a concrete nail and may hafta resort to a small file. Dang I hate messin up a good file.
If you take the leather and wad it up in a ball over and over. It will get softI need some real thin leather a soft veg tan about 1 mil , all the had at Tandy that thin was stiff as card stock.
Has anyone ever tried "liquid nail"? I have a pair of boots I glued a sole on back in the 80s with it, it never has let go!
