Beaver News #96 - September 9, 2019

We hope you had a great summer!

First off we'd like you to know, there are still three Prospector belts at 20% off available in our online store here

This week's video is about a custom leather carpenter's tool belt that we manufactured earlier this year.

Carpentry is near and dear to Mark's heart, he just loves woodworking, and so he was very excited when this client approached us wanting a practical but also sexy custom tool belt. 

This carpentry belt has specific pockets and pouches for the tools our client uses on a daily basis. It consists of a padded belt with brass hardware, fully adjustable suspenders with a yoke in the back, and several custom pouches.

2019 SUMMER SALE

Beaver News #95 - August 19, 2019

We hope you are enjoying your summer!

No video this time, instead we offer you a rare opportunity to buy a Mare's Leg Holster and/or Prospector Belt at 20% off. 

As you know, we usually don't have items in stock, everything is hand-made after you order. But sometimes people make mistakes when they make an order, they measure wrong for their belt for example.  Mistakes can happen so we make them a new item as long as they return the originally ordered one unused. 

This is how we ended up having these 5 items in stock, a Mare's Leg Holster and 4 Prospector Belts, and we decided to offer them with a 20% discount:

You can see and order all 5 items here on this page at 20% off. (The 20% off is limited to the items on that page, when an item is gone when you get to the page you would have to order a holster or belt at the regular price). 


Western Leather Gun Belt Ranger Star

Beaver News #94 - June 17, 2019

This week Mark is talking about Western Gun Belts. The belt he is showing in the video he made many years back (30-35 years ago!) and this is a very popular rig that gets ordered quite a bit by our customers.

The Ranger Star Rig is a really good gun belt if you are going to be riding and shooting, if you are going to be out on the range carrying a side iron, or if you are doing mounted Cowboy Action.

Riding with a belt that comes off the hip is a lot easier to draw from and shoot than to have a Buscadero Rig. Also, the holsters are form-fitted so the firearm doesn't just come out or bounce around and shift while riding like it is the case with many mass-produced unlined holsters.

The inspiration for the Texas Star Conchos came from one of Mark's favourite actors Chuck Norris in the series Texas Ranger.

But if you don't want star conchos on your rig that is fine too. We can put any kind of concho on the belt and holster, you just let us know what you want.

If you are interested in ordering one for yourself, you can find it in the Online shop here: But first, watch this week's video here or by clicking below. 

Catchers Glove Restored Like New

Beaver News #93 - May 20, 2019

Howdy!

This week we show you how we restored a catcher's glove so the Dad (our client) could pass it on to his beloved daughter.

The inside had a lot of wear and tear, even holes, so we had to replace it. This meant taking the glove apart, manufacture a new piece and then lace everything back together. 

Sounds easy enough but is quite tricky in reality. Check out this week's video and see the transformation from worn out with holes to looking like brand new.  

Custom Leather Electrician Tool Pouches with Shoulder Harness

Beaver News #92 - April 29, 2019

Get the BEAVER NEWS delivered to your inbox:

Our customer used a magazine holder to carry his electrician tools while working. But it didn't hold all the tools he wanted and they also fell out sometimes.

So we took the tools that he uses on a day-to-day basis and built him custom form-fitted pouches for each one of them in the order he wanted to have them. He can open and close the pouches with one hand so he is always safe if he is up on scaffolding for example.

The harness is fully adjustable to his body and liking. It sits on his shoulders and can be connected to his belt with D-rings.

Check out this video and let us know what you think. We love manufacturing unique ideas like this. So if you have something in your business or personal life (not just with tools) that you would like to have manufactured, give us a shout. 

How we make our Signature 3D cartridge loops

Beaver News #91 - April 15, 2019

Get the BEAVER NEWS delivered to your inbox:

Howdy

We are doing a happy dance because we reached 1,000 subscribers on Youtube - Yabba Dabba Doo!! We even got an email from Youtube congratulating us 🙂

Our most watched video is the one about our signature 3D cartridge loops that has over 35,700 views, 41 comments, and 398 likes.

In that video, Mark explains how he builds these loops onto belts, holsters, staging strips, etc in a way that they don't expand and become too loose for your cartridges to the point that they fall out. 

Because we got such a big response to that video Mark shows you in this week's video how we actually make these Signature 3D cartridge loops. 

It's not step-by-step instructions but it shows you the process of what goes into it. You'll see: 
  • the template he uses
  • how he cuts out the leather - make sure you check out the tricks of the trade and pro tips he tells you 
  • then he's beveling the edges and makes a stitching groove
  • to be ready to punch the slots and then dye the piece
  • Now it's time for the loop material to get prepared
  • it gets riveted to the base piece and then pulled through the slots to create the cartridge loops 
 We hope you'll enjoy, check out the video below.
