Thread: Need some advise.

  1. #1

    Need some advise.

    Hey guys. I am looking for a new or replacement strop. I currently have one from Dave (wooden base with magnetic plates allowing to use various materials on one base) I went to buy a replacement leather from Dave's site and it seems hes no longer offering them.

    Any advise or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Randy

    Marko also sells some (but apparently felt only are currently listed, though I know he has supplied leather too):

    If you have leather, I think I have some extra sheets of magnet to cut. Rubber cement and your logo, voila!

    Works great, lasts long time. When it breaks, easy to fix

    Be well,

    Mikey and Mikey!!

    Thanks to both for the input. I already have my hands full so making a leather one like you suggested Mikey. Although more then doable. Is not the direction I would like to go. Wrapping a paper around a stone is a neat Idea. Im gona have to try now NO matter what!

    Blessings

    Is there any other source for the magnetic replacements that you guys can advise me of?

    Larry. I looked at Marko's site, as one of my first searches. Then found the same thing. I have a felt I have never really used. Maybe I just need to figure it out and use that? It just doesn't have the right "feel" to me. Im using it as purchased. is it suppose to be loaded with compound to work well? etc. Sry if this has been talked about 1000 times. I missed it.

    Thanks and Happy New Year
