Accordingly, you will always have a level of understanding of the antique holsters and gunbelts that is above that of other collectors. Learning a new skill is always a good thing.
    I still have my Tandy tools I bought back in the 60's. I still use them to make knife sheaths for knives i buy. I have a money belt that is 5 inches to big for me that I will cut down to my size this winter. Should be an easy fix.

    I still use the handful of tools my dad gave around 1972, tools others gave me they found at garage sales, and tons of tools and material I found at the flea market over the years. I was recently given a box full of rolls of 1960s thread still in packages along with more tools but homemade ones (top picture). Besides holsters I'm also the family cobbler fixing my wife's and daughter's shoes many times. I only use about 25% of the tools seen here behind my cat. My primary tools are in that blue & grey box on the shelf that's portable since I usually work in the patio or in the house.

    Nice work WB and thanks for sharing. Love those work bench photos. Your cat has the same looks on its face that I get when I’m down to my last Coors...

    Nice work. I’m lucky to be friends with a saddle maker (perk of living in Amarillo). It’s amazing what those guys can whip up

    We have a neighbor cat that looks just like yours. They all hang out in our yard because I feed the birds so it's like a buffet over here. They caught one an hour ago but it escaped. Here's our dog Cassius who's no longer with us. Don't know about Tranters but he liked these.
