LOL. Jim, 30 some odd years ago when I was doing this to make extra money I had very few tools to work with too. I was stationed in Spain, and the only source I had for tools was Tandy's. Didn't have the internet or ebay to search for good deals on tools & supplies.

After 3 years of working with leather every spare moment I had, I got burnt out on it & quit taking new orders. Tools were put away & eventually sold in a yard sale along with my supply of dyes & colors & hundreds of patterns, snaps & rivets.

A few months ago I got the bug again. I missed the smell of leather & the challenge of creating something out of a piece of leather.
