Bag O' Suede, and Other Updates
After cutting out nice squares and rectangles of suede for packaging with our vises, we are left with odd-shaped pieces, because cows are funny-shaped.
We stuff scraps into nylon bags until we can stuff no more. Once the bags are full, they are about the size of a Dachshund (minus the legs) , and weigh well over a pound (that's the contents of one bag, pictured above.) There are always some pieces with nice acreage in each bag. Sometimes you'll even get an entire piece from one of our Moxon vises that didn't pass inspection, plus some odd pieces. Those are a deal. Colors are random, but are always drab brown, tan or the like. Earthy, shop-friendly colors. The Bag O' Suede is only $20.
You can line all your vises with suede, the faces of your dogs, the faces of your clamps, the pads on your holdfasts, anything you want to be grippy and padded. You can even cut long thin strips and make leather rope if you like. It's handy stuff to have around the shop.
The other updates are these. We've redesigned our ordering page. So much so that we don't even have an ordering page anymore. It's gone. We've replaced the ordering page with the "Store" page.
The new "Store" page has also been completely redesigned to be clear and concise. Products are now arranged in category boxes so you can quickly find what you're looking for. There's a lot less scrolling too, as the page is shorter.
Store Page. Thanks!
