Here are two new videos for your viewing enjoyment:

This one shows how I go about channeling an insole. There are other ways to accomplish the same task...some of them similar , some of them not so similar. And different approachs may be required depending upon the substance of the insoling leather...

channneling the insole, 9 minutes-33mb

https://youtu.be/CLSaroPTYLg

The second video carries the sequence to its next step--holing the insole. Again, there may be other ways of doing this, and certainly there are some schools of thought that take the position that this process is not necessary at all. But as I mention in the video it is an old and revered technique that confers a lot of benefits for those who use it. It is documented again on the HCC home page in the "Texas Photos"--photos of accepted techniques of custom bootmakers in 1940's Texas.

https://youtu.be/EZGTORlzpqQ

holing the insole, 12 minutes-48mb

Comments, elaborations or questions welcome in "The Screening Room."

Here is a new video from Tim Skyrme...12mb and about 6 inutes long...on back lasting shoes. First of two (?) parts?

This is very well done...and very professional. Well worth the download and the viewing.

This is the third and final part of Tim Skyrme's series on lasting a shoe. Had it come out around Christmas time several years ago, Peter Jackson, wouldn't have gotten so much attention.

toe puff and forepart upper lasting--9.5 min.,18.5mb

Again, Tim, thanks from all of us.

This is the first part of Marcell's video . It is in .mov format, so having Quicktime on your computer is required. I am going to post both parts in .mov format because they are small in size. I am also going to post the same videos in wmv format although they will be larger and take more time to download.

The difference will be that the Quicktime files will probably not stream and the video itself will display in a very small window. The wmv files will stream...meaning the video should start almost immediately and the picture will be roughly twice the size of the .mov's.

marcell's video pt.1--3 min. 5+mb

This is the first part of Marcell's video . It is in .wmv format. As soon as buffering is complete the video should start to play.

There is no sound on the first part.

Recently J. Johanson posted a link to a video he made on lasting.

The Administration of the Crispin Colloquy discourages links to other websites for important or valuable information. The Internet is replete with sites that have had photos posted which then disappeared because the link has expired or the photos were eventually cleared from the site.

As a consequence we try to obtain and post videos directly to the Crispin Colloquy and these are stored on the HCC server, which in turn insures that these videos will be preserved for as long as the HCC is in existence and has a presence on the 'Net.

The one and minor downside of all that is that Admin must vet and post these videos.

Thanks to Alasdair Muckart we were able to obtain a copy of jay's video and convert it to wmv format. It loses some of the sparkling clarity of the original but the content is there.

Enjoy...

To illustrate the "skeining off" technique that I do when making lingels (waxed ends) and that is shown in the above video, Admin has added the ability of the CC to display YouTube videos:

Simply right click on the YT video you want to embed and select "Copy Video URL". then select the "video" formatting codebox above and when the code is copied to the editing window, paste the YouTube video url between the innermost brackets. (Hover over the codebox to see the syntax).

G'day Everyone,
I've put together a clip on hand rolling threads for traditional hand sewing with bristles which I've posted on Vimeo. It's 7mins 45 sec long.
Enjoy

And here's another one.
This vid. is of my first major use of an 1800's French 'Sabot' knife I bought (used for carving French clogs, or sabot). In order to get the hang of how it behaves, and find out what these knives are capable of, I made a quick 'last shaped object' with it. So this isn't a last for a real person, just trying out cuts, curves, hollowing, bulk removal, fine trimming.
This particular knife is unusual in that, instead of having a hook on the blade end to fit in an eye bolt set in the work bench (see second photo), mine has a lug that fits in a series of holes drilled in a fixed upright, giving you variable hight adjustment for getting at different parts of the last, and is beautifully quiet and doesn't take any effort to keep it in the relevant hole (which was one of my concerns). I only found about 4 other knives designed this way on the 'net, and only one photo of it in use; a turn of the century postcard. Look at the gentleman, second from the left.
Sabot knife in use 2.jpg

And a more conventional one for comparison
Clog knife 1 copy.png
Prior to getting the Sabot knife I'd been using a carpenter's draw knife, shave horse and other tools. This knife is a revelation to use, able to remove large chunks of timber, or paper thin shavings and it arrived from France already sharp; but I did some more work on the edge and was able to get it to shaving sharp. After four or five hours of use, the edge was still scary sharp (as one split second of inattention, while it was leaning against my work bench, showed me. No stitches, but I keep it stored elsewhere now).

Cheers
Duncan
