is this the questoin that you need answared? if so i will try.
what tpye of leater work are you doing at this time. im new to list
to but have been doing leather work for a few years. when i started
i started with sissors (heavy dutiy), a leather hole punch, a pattern
my wife made for looking a the pouch i wanted to make. some leather
needles. and laceing. you can also use blunt needles with big eyes.
needle point needle works well. you will need 2 for the saddle
stitch. a good pen to mark out the pattern on the back side of the
leather. some leather cleaner and some mink oil. we made these
pouches for about 3.00 ea and sold them for 20.00 ea. and that was a
few year ago and our bisness is going very well. this is just how my
lady and i got started we still do not own a lot of tools but we make
good money somtimes and it fun and somthing the family can do togeter.
hope this help if you send more info. we would be glad to go in more
detail as to what you may want or need.
