New tools

February 27, 2015

The new leather die cutters are here. the small one is an exact replica of the Chouinard Equipment leather patches from the 70's as seen on my 1976 ultima Thule pack. I bought a 12 ton hydraulic press to stamp them out.

The bigger patch is a copy of the leather side patches used by Karrimor.
