Having done some heavy duty sewing in the past nor related to leatherwork.
I would recommend you try a sailmakers palm, not expensive and they don't
half help on the push through.
Very good looking finish there, you have a natural eye for tidy.

Thanks Paul, that was very helpful and I can now see ebay running out of leather, prickers and waxed thread :Chuckle:

Looking forward to seeing the reel cases. :Thumb:

That's perfect, Paul...and a good deal nicer looking than the rare old Hardy original. I had no idea you could buy the tube on eBay, but it's the contrasting leatherwork that really sets it off.

That is a really excellent job there. :Hat:

I think I'll add that to the ever expanding project list.

Thanks for adding the tutorial :Thumb:

Thanks Bobby, the bottom cap was simply turned from a scrap of brass bar.
