You will be continuing to use most of the tools you used in Beginning Leatherwork, but you will need some additional supplies as well. You can buy your tools individually, or you can also choose to buy a leatherworking toolkit。我将在一分钟内具体地讨论每个工具和材料。

本课程的基本工具:

材料

Step 1: Know Your Tools

There are many online resources for buying leather and leather tools, and depending on where you live, you may even have a local leather supplier. There are a surprising 108Tandy Leatherstores located across North America, and quite a few local independent stores as well. Leatherworking requires some initial investment in tools, there's just no getting around it. Here's some information about each of the basic tools we'll be using. To see some of the more specialized tools, check out the皮革加工百科全书在这节课的最后。

X-Acto Knife-一种便宜易用的皮革切割工具,非常适合细节,但不适合切割非常厚的皮革。确保你有很多额外的刀片。

皮革剪- I prefer these semi-serrated Olfa shears for cutting leather. They always stay sharp and are great for cutting out small patterns in thin to medium leather.

切割轮- 与金属尺和切割板一起使用时,在皮革中切割长直线的好方法,而不是必不可少的工具,而是用于切割肩带。

界板-一个自我修复切割垫或其他光滑,易损坏,表面与一些给予是必不可少的皮革切割。

缝槽机- marks sewing lines by creating grooves a consistent distance from leather edges. Not an essential tool but a very useful one, especially when you are sewing stiffer leather like what we are using for the wallet.

可调V形槽-雕刻不同深度的凹槽,创造干净的皮革褶皱。一个非常重要的工具,一定要买一个。

Skiver- thins leather in select areas by shaving off layers with a razor blade. Useful for removing bulk when you are layering thick pieces together.

木槌s-对于冲压、设置卡扣和使用手动冲头,您总是希望使用木槌,而不是锤子。皮槌有生皮、木头或聚乙烯三种,重量各不相同。中等重量的木槌是一个很好的选择

Hammer- sometimes you do need a metal hammer for leatherwork though, folding, setting rivets etc, it's a good idea to have one around.

Mini Anvil-小铁砧很有用,但也很可爱,当你需要时,它会给你一个稳定的坚硬表面,帮助你打孔,在尴尬的地方设置卡扣和铆钉。

Quartz- a smooth solid base for stamping and punching. If you don't want to spend the money to get one of these a salvaged paving stone, slab of hardwood or steel will work too.

庞多-一块像砧板一样的塑料板,覆盖在石英板上,这样在冲孔和冲压时工具就不会变形或变钝

旋转冲床-轻松地在皮革上打不同大小的孔,而不必使用锤子和打孔表面,但不能从边缘打孔超过几英寸。

手动冲床- individual punches that create holes when hit with a mallet on a punching surface. Not as convenient to use as a rotary punch, but they can make holes in hard to reach places and come in more sizes. Sets with interchangeable heads are the most economical.

Awls-用于制造小孔和标记皮革的戳和刮擦工具。我主要用它们来打缝纫孔,或者在皮革上描出图案的轮廓。

Diamond Stitching Chisels- pronged punches designed to create evenly spaced sewing holes. Available with different prong spacing and prong numbers. Sets with interchangeable heads are the most economical if you want spacing options.

皮革针-有几种不同用途的皮针,我们在这节课上主要使用钝针。

Waxed Thread-手工缝制皮革的线通常相当厚,经常上蜡,以帮助它从解开。在这堂课上,你需要一些人来缝袋子。

Overstitch Wheel-作为一种标记工具,用来排列针距和在纸上标记图案边缘。它也可以在缝线上运行,以帮助收紧它们。我有一个可互换的头部有不同的间距。不是必要的工具,但非常有用。

Stitching Pony-保持您的皮革项目稳定,而你鞍缝。一个伟大的工具,如果你想尝试掌握两针鞍缝。你也可以做你自己的以下this Instructable

Leather Contact Cement-皮革胶水,适用于两个表面。

双面胶带- narrow tape with a strong adhesive on both sides that is used to adhere leather together. Comes in permanent and re-positionable varieties

一次性刷子-用来把胶水涂在皮革上。

铆钉- simple two part metal fasteners used to join layers of leather together. Available in different sizes and finished. Some varieties can simply be set with a hammer, others require specialized setting tools.

Rivet Setter- tool use to set certain types of rivets, usually two metal parts used with a mallet.

快照- Simple metal closures that are set into leather much like rivets. Snaps consist of 4 parts: the cap and the socket, and the post and the stud, and each pair it attached using a specialized setting tool.

快速调整器-用于将卡扣的两半固定在一起的工具,通常是两个金属部件与木槌一起使用。

Buckles- a type of metal or plastic hardware used to create adjustable connections on leather straps.

Rings- metal loops of various shapes and sizes used as connection points in leather projects.

Step 2: Materials for Each Project

在这个类中,不同的项目选项需要稍微不同的材料。以下是完成每一个设计所需的所有东西的确切数量。

Small Bag:

硬件for one bag: one3/4“中心杆扣, two3/4“D环, one行20 snap还有一些中小型的快速铆钉在你选择的终点

车身真皮: a piece of 3-5 oz leather at least 24" x 24" per bag. Your best bet is probably flexible upholstery or chap leather leather. Any of these would be good choices:Distressed brown upholstery chap,Brown heavy side,黑色摩托小子,破猪皮

Leather for the straps:一块稍硬且较厚的5-8盎司皮革,至少12英寸x 6英寸(这可能是您用于钱包的相同皮革,甚至是旧皮带)。这些都是不错的选择:Austin Double Shoulder,拉蒂戈侧,Meza双肩,Warrior Double Shoulder

大袋的选择:

硬件:one 1" buckle, two1“D戒指,还有一些中小型的快速铆钉在你选择的终点

身体: a piece of the same flexible 3-5 oz leather at least 36" x 24"

Straps: a piece of the same stiffer 5-8 oz leather at least 38" x 6"

硬件: one 1 1/2" - 3"O型环, 4第20行捕捉,还有一些中小型的快速铆钉在你选择的终点

更具体地说,我在S.H.弗兰克在旧金山。红棕色的皮革我用的包是一个柔软的4盎司顶面粒面装饰牛皮与拉起完成和轻鹅卵石粒,黑色皮革流苏袋是一个3盎司的家伙与鹅卵石粒,和黑色皮革的肩带是一个更硬,5盎司全粒面牛皮。
