Installing Rivets, Eyelets, Snaps and Stamps- #at home

Tandy Leather Factory and designer Teri Edmonds have teamed up to bring you this helpful video demonstrating two great ways to install rivets, eyelets snaps and stamps using the Craftool Pro Hand press and hand tools.  All of the products seen here are listed below and are available on the TandyLeather.com website.  I also have included a link to my Amazon Shopping cart for additional crafting supplies.  When you by from my Amazon cart I receive a small percentage so thank you for supporting me so I can keep making more content for you!

Supplies

3960-00 Craftool Pro Hand Press –

This hand press is simple to install and simple to use.  It comes packed in a compact box and is heavy-duty.  It can be permanently on a desktop or workbench or it can be more portable using a C-clamp or two.  The long handle makes light work of of your project and is easy on the wrists.  This video shows 5 different types of hardware but the Craftool Pro has so many more uses.  A person could collect a wide array of dies including alphabet stamps and round spot rivets.  The Craftool Pro hand press is accurate and precise every time if used properly.

Workshop Essentials

I have been a cobbler for a very long time.  I repair everything from shoes to belts, bags and even saddles and bridals.  I make custom goods as well as repair items for others.  My workshop is extensive.  I have several work benches and stations.  I have used old-school tools as well as modern, time-saving tools.  As a busy professional, I am always looking for ways to do what I do faster and safer on my hands and wrists.  In this video I demonstrate the difference between hand tools and the more modern Craftool Pro.
