    Dec 10, 2008, 11:18 AM - Leather Ammo Belt Interest for January/Febuaray #1

    Hey guys, well I know its still abit aways but theres a reason why I'm asking way ahead of time. Most of you have seen my latest verison of the belts where they have the folded edges. I use a extremely lightwieght leather that allows the leather to fold nicely. This leather came into Tandy as an odd lot in big scrap pieces and was sold by the pound. Every store got one box only and I bought up the box but its now all gone. I called Tandy corp to find out how I can get some more. I found out I can get it again but only if I order a min of 500 lbs. I don't mind buying up that much at $3 a pound. But I just wanted to see if there was going to be any interest at all next year by Feb. That way I can go ahead and place an order and get some before then to have it ready. I've had some guys pm me over the last few weeks about belts but I have no belt leather left. Just wanted to ask. Thanks guys.

    I work in a leather shop. It's probably cheaper for you to get a 25 sq. ft. hide for about $150 from Tandy. You want a hide in the 8-10 ounce range.

    No its really not. 8-10 is wayyy to thick. I use to work for tandy. A 25 sft hide might only get me 4 belts total. I need the stuff thats a 1 ounce. But I know what your talking about.

    Exactly. I was able to scrounge the 1-1.5oz bins to get enough to do enough pouches and covers for a few belts. It's a shame I can't find a couple pieces in that weight that measure 5"x45" for the belt sections.

    I know what you mean Eric, I have to use a 9157-72 which is a 2-3 oz leather. its the thinnest stuff I'll get that will be large enough.

    I was able to call up the guy in Chicago. He has axcess to the 1 1.5 large scraps. Just nothing big enough to do belts.
