Flexible Leather Weights | Soft leather shot bags for the shop

As a compliment to my rigid weights, I made a set of flexible leather weights as well. These are especially useful for gluing up curved parts that are difficult to clamp or delicate surfaces that would be easily marked by a rigid weight or clamp.

    I used very nearly the same method for making bench rest bag props. The only difference was I weighed out 25lbs of shot sewed into canvas and then sewed the shot filled canvas bag into the saddle shaped leather bag. I made four. Yes it is indeed a lot of work. Yours are exceptionally nice. You do beautiful work!

    Very neat video. I have worked with just a small bit of leather and it was helpful to see you punched stitch holes in advance, correct? I've always hated stitching pieces together until watching this video. If I could make one suggestion: I am a bit slow to take in the details, so slowing down your playback by just a bit would be much appreciated. Either way, I'm going to be coming back here a lot, I think, to learn some more. Thanks again. Mike
