I like wide strops,Jantz sells 12x12 Vegetable tanned Cowhide can make 3 4"x12" strops.Glue to wood wt. evenly rolled contact cement.
I doubt it will work on balsa. I have used it on hardwood with grooves cut for my carving chisels.
and the diamond? on felt or leather is fine?
i was about to ask the same question myself.and the diamond? on felt or leather is fine?
I use cr02 paste on balsa and it works great. The stick compounds referred to earlier will work better on felt. If the diamond is a spray I would imagine it would work on anything (balsa, leather, felt, cardboard, card stock, newspaper, etc) with good results.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
Since there are so many combinations of strop materials and different compounds which combinations seem to work best?
I was always interested in trying diamond spray on felt for final stropping? or is leather a better medium?
Where is the best place to get your diamond sprays?
Thanks in advance again.
