How did you first get started in leather crafting and how long has your current business been in operation?
I got started in leather crafting approximately 20 years ago. I had received a leathercraft multi-project kit from Tandy Leather as a Christmas gift, and included in the purchase of that kit was six lessons at the local store. K&D Holsters has been in operation for approximately 8 years now.
What led you to the Tippmann Line for your leather crafting needs?
As I got started with K&D Holsters, I quickly recognized the need for a sewing machine. I found the Tippmann BOSS machine and purchased that from one of the retailers and used it for approximately a year. I subsequently purchased the Tippmann 7-ton and 15-ton clickers.
Which Tippmann items do you currently use in creating your leather work?
I currently only use the Tippmann 15-ton clicker in the manufacturing of our products. This includes a vast number of dies manufactured by Tippmann from our drawings and patterns. We use them on a daily basis.
What types of machinery were you using prior to using the Tippmann?
The Tippmann machines were the first machines we used.
Would you recommend Tippmann equipment?
Without a doubt I would recommend Tippmann equipment for the hobbyist to small manufacturing. Tippmann backs up their equipment like no other and is always available over the phone.
