Calling all holster makers.
I know we have some serious leather working talent represented on this site, so I thought I might take advantage of your wisdom.
I have been toying with an idea for a machine which has the potential to improve wet molding leather. Not only the way it takes on the shape of object, but if all goes well it could speed up the drying time as well. I am still in the process of banging out a crude prototype, but I must admit to being worse than an amateur when it comes to working with leather.
Here is where I need help.
First of all, would there be a market for something like this?
Second I am not asking anyone to divulge their trade secrets, but what weights and types of leather do you usually use for wet molding?
Last but not least, how do you currently do your wet molding?
Thanks in advance.
