One of thestraps on my persons toolbag was in pretty rough shape. Leather was cracked and dry and when I was trying to recondition it- the strap broke in two. Needless to say but I was pretty bummed. I took the broken strap down to my local shoe repair guy and he promptly fixed me up with a couple new ones and even used the original brass fastener that he was able to save. With the original buckle as well, it looks to be a pretty good match.

I thought I would show another example of homemade straps. I made these 2-3 years ago. Even though I do have several original buckles I decided to make my own for these straps. The seat cover is also one I made, stamped and dyed to match my original Persons bag. I mottled the dye on the back of the straps to somewhat match the mottled surface on the inside of the bag.

Hello,

HUFFMANBILL, that is fantastic work on those straps and that seat!! Just wonderful. I believe that you would have a very big line if you started to make tool pouches!! I would be in that line too. The buckles look like the buckle off of the army's old 5 buckle rubber overshoe!!
