Hello.

Greetings Slingers,

Thanks to CA and all the other moderators for their contribution to our fun.
I am past the first flush of youth and have been slinging for about a year.
Already sharing the fun with my Dad and Grandkids.
Allowing for the international nature of the forum I have seen a lot of "misguided" words written about leather.  I am a trained leather worked and happy to share my skillset.
BE SAFE
BE SMILEY
BE STRANGE.

CHEERS,

Howdy from South Texas!

I’m shocked... SHOCKED! that someone on here would carelessly share an opinion as fact  Grin
Just out of curiosity, can you give an example of the incorrect info on leather?

Greetings NoC, Kick and Tomas,
Thanks for the welcome. Having read over  a few hundred posts since I found this magnificent resource it is much more an impression than absolutes but the most obvious is  a clear statement on the origin of suede.
As to what I'm into, the guy who trained me did everything from water wheel flow gates to leather clocks so I simply dabble and if it's leather I have a pretty good idea of what is what so mainly things like knife sheaths, motorcycle saddles and now sling pouches.
Cheers  👍🍌

Wow leather clocks! Do you have your work online or anything? I'd love to see this stuff and connect!
My own handle on Instagram is @cobblestone_leathers .
A lot of my own work is also motorcycle related alongside smaller bits and bites like knife sheaths.

Greetings Tomas,

My healthy paranoia does not allow me a web presence.

As to leather clocks this is what the guy who taught me did. He retired to Ireland many years ago but if you want to know more I'm happy to share.

Also, sorry I can't check you out on Instagram as I do not have an account.

Happy to share on here or by email.

Cheers

Welcome.
I'm presuming leather clockfaces, rather than leather clock mechanisms.
If we're going to be pedantic, let's get it right whistle

welcome to the forum and hopefully we'll meet up at some point during 2021.

Greetings CA,
Many thanks for the welcome.  🍌

The guy in question made me look sober, sane and sensible. He studied leather craft as far away as Australia and Pacific Islands. He also worked in Egypt as a marketing advisor to leather craftsmen. I miss him.
The clocks, Everything visible was leather, he actually got as far as making an escapement out of leather but realised the finished article, if possible, would be the size of a small house !

Sorry to have to correct you, but I must differ.

I am not pedantic but was in fact deputy advisor to the acting, vice chair person of the society of Maltese Pedants.  May the 23rd 1647 to September the 8th 1902.

🤪🤓🤓🤓🦄

Thanks for the welcome and here's to meeting, south of Derby  👍

Cheers
