malcolmbebb Posted December 29, 2010 Author Share Posted December 29, 2010 Round 2 finished tonight. I was a little miffed to realise I only had one patch left to do, as I would have worked a bit later last time and got finished. This time I tried a scalpel to skive the patch, and it worked well. For those interested in sharp pointy things, a Swann-Morton no 3 scalpel with a new 10A straight blade. I used a ceramic tile as a surface, raised on a book to give height and allow a flat hand angle. With the point just off the leather the blade flexed enough to give a controlled neat cut about 3mm wide. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
