On Wednesday, I did a post on some basic leatherworking tools. Today I will continue with more basic tools to get you started on you leather working career.
One important technique for crafting leather items requires punching a hole through your hide. It is useful for making holes for eyelets, grommets, rivets and screws. I have a pretty basic rotary punch. It is useful for most situations, but I have already broken one (and don’t bother to try and fix it, they are cheap enough to replace). Still, it is a good option and one that I use a lot in my normal leather working.
