Leatherwork books, by Ron Edwards

Ron is well known in Australian leatherworking and whipmaking circles and his images are drawn as the project progresses for complete clarity. Ron was an artist who drew all the images in his books as he went along, so these books have a unique feel to them. Capturing the Australian bush and the people who live there was a passion of Rons, and his detailed images of early life in this, sometimes harsh environment, allow us to feel what it was like living in isolation on stations.

Custom Leather Drive Belts-Single-ply (11/64''), up to 4'' wide

This replaces much of the oils lost in the tanning process, softens the leather & aids in extending belt life. When that has been completely absorbed it is wound onto reels to be made into drive belts. As time goes on, perhaps every 400 to 600 hours of operation or once a year, with a rag dampened (not dripping) with mineral spirits wipe the driving surface (hair or pulley side) of the belt being sure to rub in a direction that would close the end of any lap joints rather than lift or open them, & the pulley faces to just clean off oil, grime & dust accumulation, Then on the clean side of the same rag spread about a teaspoon of clear Neatsfoot Oil compound, kind of squeeze it into the rag a bit & wipe the drive face of the belt only with this.

Then let it sit over night before using the belt. Q: Is there a right & wrong side of single ply leather to run on the pulley face & why? Back Room Leather. You will not likely have the proper size, or type of thread laying around.
