Title: Tool Belt
Post by: timtheboatguy on March 20, 2013, 03:39:33 am
I finally got around to making a tool belt. This one is for fitting the blank to the boat, and I plan to make another one for doing the final fit and snap installation.

Very nice. I have a large version that is attache to the shelf on my right next to the sewing machine.
I keep all my tools in that one ( scissors, nippers, hog ear clippers, two tiny needle nose pliers, tape measure, etc., etc.

They come in real handy. I am sure you will like yours.

If someone made a magizine fed snap tool and I would not need the other belt!

With sore thumbs and fingers, and then that little rubber thingy that holds the button in place gets stiff from the cold. I spend more time fumbling around with snaps than sewing the cover!

Can you buy just the rubber? I thought you had to buy the whole attachment, and I can't find those for less than $25.
