Making Leather Gear
By Daddy Wendell
All of the gear in this book can be made without a sewing machine and with a minimal set of tools that fit inside a book bag. If you make your own gear, you can save a considerable amount of money – a piece of gear that sells for $120 in a leather store would take an hour and $20 worth of leather and hardware to make. Inside, you'll find examples of basic leather working tools and techniques for using them, how to cut a hide into straps, how to apply grommets, rivets and snaps. Patterns and instructions for making wrist/bicep band, belt, Sam Browne belt, two kinds of bondage belt, suspenders, bondage cuffs, hogtie straps, D ring collar, locking buckle collar, leash, chest harness, stockings, head harness, strapon harness, seven gates of hell and braided handle floggers.
