Re: The Registry

Hello All, I'm sure I've done an introduction but it was surely a long time ago before I'd truly started off on this journey, boots on of course. I'm only now learning to repair and build boots after many months of learning from articles, videos, and books. I'm a novice leatherworker so I have some ...

Re: Inseaming Awls

Fellows, Hopefully this is the right place to post this, I'm looking for an inseaming awl, my first. I'll be working solely (solely, ha!) on men's boots. I believe I'm looking for something like a #2, but I'm also interested in a few lengths/sizes if anyone has some for sale. I've been scouring eBay...

Re: Lasting

I lied, When you measure the foot, how does length relate to the length of the last? Let's say a foot is right about 290mm in length (mine). Obviously this foot wouldn't be able to use a 290mm last because it would be too small. I have been reading through the forum, is the 1/11th rule correct here?...

Re: Lasting

DW,

Again, thank you! You've answered my questions explicitly. I may decide on having someone with some more experience relast them for me and I can continue on the soling.

Re: Lasting

DW, Thanks you for the information! If you were going to relast a pair of shoes, what would you do? How would you go about tacking the upper while insetting, or grabbing it since there is so little? I am wondering how the pros do it! I see your point on this being too large a task for someone just s...

Re: Lasts

Hello all! I am a newbie and looking for some help with lasts. I'm planning on relating three pairs of my boots, all with a similar toe profile and heel height. Two are pull on boots and one is a lace up. One pair of pull-ons was about a half size too big and this is why I have decided to relast. Th...

I've been interested in learning about shoe repair and construction for a while. I've done only a small amount thus far but plan on resoling and rel...
