    Sep 20, 2006, 8:35 PM - Cruzer V3 Holster Assembly Interest Thread #1

    Over the last couple of weeks I've been contacted by a handful of people who were all interested in obtaining one of my V3 holster asemblies. Consequently in a little over a month I'll be venturing onto a new career path that will without a doubt take me away from doing any further Jango leatherworking for quite some time...maybe even indefinitely.

    So I posted this thread to see if there were about 4 individuals who would be interested in me squeezing one more run of holster assemblies in before they're no longer available. I would need at least 4 people interested who were able to place prepaid orders. Any more than 4 people and we would have to play it by ear after I finished the 4 orders.

    Turn around time would be 2 weeks for the first 2 people who placed orders, and 3 weeks for the 3rd and 4th people.

    For now this is just an "Interest only" thread as I need to finish up 2 holster assemblies and a gauntlet project I'm currently working on before starting a holster run.

    See the pics below for past V3 holster assemblies.

    Thanks,
    Cruzer


    EDIT: Sorry guys, I forgot the pricing -$200.



    UPDATE:::::LIST CLOSED FOR NOW

    Ok, it's beginning to look like I can get started on a run next week. If I push it, I can fabricate approximately 3 assemblies in a week so the first set of prepaid orders will be started next week and I'll just keep making as many as I can.

    The strapping system of each assembly is cut to fit a person's body dimensions, therefore, I can only accept prepaid orders before starting to cut on the leather. As a result, I'll have to take orders in the order that payments are received.

    If you place an order I'll need you to PM me these three body dimensions: Height, waist circumference at about the belly button, and mid-thigh circumference. I'll cut the strapping system as close as possible, but a little on the excess side so keep in mind you may have to shorten the front straps if it doesn't fit perfectly out of the box by adjusting it with the holes. It's an alteration that can easily be done with any tool that will make a hole in a piece of leather (i.e. punch, drill, knife, etc.). The back straps and thigh straps are intentionally made long so you can cut off the excess material for a custom fit.

    There are a few possibilities for stain finishes that are available, and having to choose between either a 1 3/4" leather belt or 2" nylon webbed belt. So once a person places an order, we'll discuss specifics via PM.

    Prices are $200 shipped in the U.S., and $215 across the ocean.

    My paypal addy is Lorenzo_Cruz1@msn.com (there's an underscore between my first and last name).

    I think that's it.


    I'll start the list here:

    1. Benkenove (paid)
    2. Jango Fettish (paid)
    3. Svoor (paid)
    4. gaogaigar (paid)
    5. TK3130 (paid)
    6. MonCal (paid)
    7. Fett2210 (paid)
    8 Skirata (paid)
    9. Bobamaker (paid)

    Wow, I'm humbled. BIG and thank you to those who posted shout-outs! I'm glad you were happy with them for those who have a pair. And JB and JW, your's are closer to being done every night.

    The list has already spilled over with those who have expressed interest. Let me log all the PMs and replies and get a list going when I get time.

    Speaking from experience, the amount of time, skill and money involved in a set as accurate as this is overwhelming. I would jump all over this if I didn't have so much blood, sweat and tears in my own set.

    Hey guys, those three in the pic are from the last small run I did. The three I'm working on right now for you guys will be 95% done by the end of the weekend. I had to order more post hardware and three new strap end punches (for the wider strap sizes we're using this time around) to round off the ends (Thanks Jango_Wes! ). Just ordered them this morning so everything should be here in 2 working day via UPS and then I can put on the finishing touches. I'm shooting for them to be done by the middle of next week.

    I couldn't make a helmet to save my life...I can barely paint one. Helmet fabricating would be the expertiese of some other amazing people on these boards, skirata.

    SWfreak, I don't sell my holster assemblies in pieces.
