Hey Fellows,

Being an old horse man and watched the leather craftsman make harness I am sure I know what it is;

It is a leather vise for holding two pieces of leather while the craftsman sews the two pieces together by hand, seen it used many time in the past.

That's one of the most compelling answers yet Ralph, can you to the best of your recollection tell us exactly how it works?

Ralph may be remembering one of these for cutting leather straps to width.

An acceptable answer with references was not provided this month. So to a random draw we went!


We'd like to announce our random winner for the month of July "What's It" as @Ralph Allen Jones. Ralphs name was drawn from our official TPW ball cap of the contributors who participated in MWTCA's What's It for the month of July!

Congrats Ralph!!


Ralph, please PM me with your shipping address, phone number, and spouses name (if applicable) and we'll get an MWTCA membership out to you asap, along with all the benefits of being a member of this great organization.

Thank you all for your participation!
