Tool Time // Crew Punches (Oblong Punch) // Including Sharpening Guide

August 16, 2021

Tool time is back with another episode, this time we are focusing on the crew punch!

These tools are essential for crafters looking to attach buckles to straps and create beautiful dog collar, belts and bridle work but, they are often blunt when they arrive fresh from the shop.

In this video I show you some handy tips on how to get the most out of them as well as the all important sharpening technique.

I hope you enjoy the video :-)

N.B I cannot be blamed if you spend the next few hours sharpening all your crew punches after watching this video .... I know I definitely didn't ... nope not me....

Measuring Guide

Ordering a bespoke dog collar or belt? Please read the measuring guide to ensure you order the correct size.

Dog Collars

When measuring for your new dog collar, the best option is to measure the internal length of a current collar adjusted to how you like it fitted. To do this, remove the collar from your dog and do it up at the desired fitting, then with a flexible tape measure measure around the inside of the collar. This length will be where the middle hole will fit on your new collar.

How to measure your dog collar
You can also measure around your dogs neck. Place the tape measure around your dogs neck where the collar will sit and to a tightness that you like.

We will use the measurements provided as the internal measurement and add 2 larger and 2 smaller holes for adjustment. 

Belts

The best way is to measure your current belt from the inside of the buckle to the hole that is used most. You can also use a tape measure and measure around your waist where your belt will sit.

We will add 3 larger and 3 smaller holes for adjustment.
