    Some tools I’ve bought…
    Hole punches, thonging chisel and strap-end punches, etc.



    For those who are venturing into leather craft, you can easily make your own tools... not all of them lah!

    Jerk Needles are popular with ĎOle Skoolí Leather craftsman for stitching and repair.

    Here is my version made from an ear-pick (insert foto)


    I bought the wooden handle from a local hardware shop and drilled a small hole to accommodate the thin ear-pick. Once itís forced in, I glued the base of the thin metal with epoxy.

    Next, using long-nose pliers, curl the tip and sharpen it such that it can pierce leather without problems. Since I donít have a bench grinder, I had to sweat it out using my needle file.

    Still a long journey to go...
