Whatsup fellow cobblers! Hope everyone is doing great especially in the situation we all find ourselves in! I've been itching to get back since lockdown to continue this great trade! I hope people who run their own businesses aren't going to be affected too much from all of this Covid-19 stuff! Just recently finished my latest video and uploaded to YouTube would love all you guys to check it out once again and any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Stay safe fam! Mad Respect!

Cobbler G

What's the stain you've used to do the scuffed finish?

Great job.

Rick.

I used dylon leather dye black and brown bro, sanded the surface to prep then once applied the dye allowed it to almost dry then buffed it on the machine, done this 2 to 3 times to get the finish.

What I would say is that I’ve seen a lot worse produced in the last 18 years since I retired from repairing. Congratulations in turning out a quality job and very well done on the video, semi pro I think!

Young Guys like this should Be encouraged not criticised and helped along the way, most of us started where he is and perfected our work over time. I’m sure his work will be better in the future as he picks up tips along the way, like we all did.

perhaps  cut the kid some slack    he should be encouraged . ffs he works for timpsons   hes good for his  years  when i was a relief for them i worked with people who had been there 30 odd yrs and still didnt have a clue? , so he looks a bit sheepish on an outsoler , recon i do , and ive been using one for 39yrs, at least he shows his repairs through facebook , how many on here do? hes the future of this business just saying

Us oldies would use a proper size last and a stirrup rope.

Only using what's provided to me in branch, for being in the business less than 2 years I know I'm doing better than many who have been doing it for many many years. IL continue and IL get better

get yourself a stirrup strap (old seat belt will do) makes life a lot easyer

OK might I have been a bit harsh. With age comes experience and also grumpiness. Get a stirrup rope though Not bad for 2 years then. I have over 40 years and still learning.

Let's see some of your work then, with 40 years I expect it to be incredible...
