I ordered the gripper and foam hoods from Mike at the Nocking Point. He is a sponsor here on TradRad. Mike is the one I use for all the traditional archery related items I order. Hard to beat his price and service!

I use Barge Cement. It is by far the best contact cement I have ever used on damp leather. If Barge is not available in your area you can try other types of contact cement. I saw that Lowe's sells a brand of contact cement I would assume for putting down thin counter top material to wood? It was right next to the Tite Bond glues.

For the stitch on the brackets I started off with a needle on each end of my thread (braided artificial sinew in this case) and simply crossed the needles over from left to right and right to left while doing a whip stitch. Does that help?

Yepper, sure does !! Thank you and Thank you for a fine build a long and the Pocket Quiver that arrived in the Mail today.

Alpha female saw the catalog and said, can he get this stuff? (pointing at the purse kit) so, I have a feeling I'll be working overtime to pay for her new found "I want to do this" obsession.
but Like they say, "If momma's happy everyone is happy" :applaud:
I'll probably be ordering a couple of the Hunting belts too, customized of course for the wolfpup. What a day! :dance:
