After doing a trowel holster I thought I’d move on to a leather holder for a pin pointer. Tested it today and it works beautifully. It still needs two rivets at the top of the stitching and a lanyard anchor hole adding but you’ll get the idea. This one has a few minor marks but it really is very practical- light but keeps the trousers very clean and keeps the pointer securely held in but easy to remove.

Knowing how they end up looking it would seem a sacrilege to use it.

Very smart and durable piece of kit you’ve produced there Cath. And the Forum name & Logo are the icing & cherry on the cake. Well done :thumbsup:

I like that a lot, I don't like the holster that comes with the MI-6 as it isn't wide enough for the belt that I want to hang it on, that's the only criticism I have of the MI-6 and it's my own fault for using such a huge belt, I might have to have a go making one, I have all the tools but I suspect I don't have quite the same skills!

And look at that,,,, you even cleaned your pin-pointer for the photo shoot :thumbsup:
Nice work. You should make a time-lapsed video of you making this.... would be good to see.
Always carefully proof-read what you've typed to see if you've any words out.

Cheeky! My pin-pointer gets dunked it water once in a while. Usually when it is so caked in mud it’s no longer practical :lol:

Cath, which leather working kit do you recommend? I've fancied trying this too, although I've never actually got around to it.

Excellent result....very professional and stylish. I can see all the HUB-meisters being kitted out in your range of themed items and a stall at all the big rallies.....maybe Jenkins can man it.
I very much like it ....but this is one item I wouldn't buy myself ...as you probably know by now, I think pinpointers are the devil. :lol:

I have a spare pinpointer here Jan that doesnt work
I think i will remove all the gubbins from the inside, and then make it alcohol water tight, and then at least you could fill it with your fave tipple water and not look suspicious on the field :thumbsup:

Although, drinking from a pinpointer may raise an eyebrow or 3 :lol:

Cor, that's a bit of all right! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

How did you get the embossing tool for the forum logo?
