Question on Girth Belt


For those of you who make your own girth belts.

What thickness of leather do you use to back the girth belt and what do you use to stick the bolol to the leather back.

Thanks in advance for the help.

i know that in my experience for belt material you should use at least 4oz for the backing...maybe even a bit heavier...as far as the bolo to the backing...leatherweld glue is a favorite of mine for combining leather parts...the stuff sticks unreal...a bead under the bolo and then working down under the next one and the side of the previous one should keep it all solid

2/3 oz for the backing.

4/5 oz for the back cover.

Tandy Leather Weld smeared all over the rough side of the backing before laying down the ropes (preferably over a curved object).

What do you mean by backing and back cover?

Sorry for seeming clueless but I just want to make sure I'm doing it right.

Also by 4/5 do you mean 4 to 5 oz leather?

Thanks for the info.
