    any interest in another ammo belt maker?

    Myself and a friend are considering going into making leather ammo belts for Boba/Jango costuming.

    This is purely based on the amount interest for the parts, so....

    I don't have pics, as he will make the prototype if we get enough people interested.

    Please post and say whether you want to be put on the list or not.

    We need at least four (4) people for it to be worth it.

    they will be $100 shipped and will be very nice quality, as this is the same gentleman that made my jedi belt. they can be done in brown/tan, black, or oxblood (red).

    We can also do more jedi belts, but I'm just tossing the fett stuff up here for now.

    interested parties:
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    thanks for looking,
    ZK

    Why dont you just make the prototype for all to see. When someone is paying a hundred bucks they dont want to regret it later on down the road. Im not saying your work isnt good, but you have to show us what you have to offer.

    Thats like a toy company saying they are making lightsabers from star wars for $50 but they dont show pictures of them and come in a sealed cardboard box. Not only will that product not sell too well, but they might be really bad quality.

    You may also want to add in what type of leather you are going to be using. If you are planing on dying them I'm going to assume your gonna use Veg-tan leather?? Try to remember that when using Veg-tan that the leather will dry up and feel really stiff. most people don't like that. So be sure to oil all parts. I take it you will have a industrial sewing machine or at least a heavy duty antique singer model. Don't try to use a newer machine as you will blow out your motor. Also use a white nylon thread if you can, its much stronger and won't break while sewing. Good luck buddy!

    I'd be interested but would want to see what the finished product looked like before I dropped any dough or committed to anything.

    I'm sure there is plenty of "interest" for an ammo belt. With reputable sellers on this board all ready making them, I'm sure members would want to see a prototype before they start signing up blindly for parts that they could get from a well known seller.

    I would maybe be interested, like everyone else, I gotta see what it looks like first.

    believe me, if you make some and they are good, you'll be able to sell them. especially only 4, so my advice would be make them, if they dont sell here they WILL on ebay
