Sanrenmu 813 and other stuff

Sanrenmu 9104 front scale/ Sanrenmu 813/ Sanrenmu 9104 CF conversion

Burr on the SRM 813

 ...also on the inside

Polished washers on a shoemaker's knife (Tina is a special brand for shoemaker's and horticulturist knives and tools) and removed burr

First take on a mold to cast a scale, not sure if it will work out as intended, esp. without destroying the mold

It was a nice try but it doesn't work this way :P

Many kids in my first son's kindergarten class have the same (good but cheap) winter boots
To make sure my he comes back with his I made him some "coins" from a badge I had lying around

The red one is made from a souvenir coin from a machine on mount Säntis
The heart was made for a friend of my wife who always has to search for her keys in her bag

A workmate wanted something made of a German 1923 coin because he likes the proverb "Sich regen bringt Segen" Hard work pays off is a good translation but I like "Keep your nose to the grindstone" more, obviously.

I tried two different ways to finish it so I decided to combine the two.

...and then there's the eagle. Next time I'll try to insert the typical parting of the hair and the moustache ;)

Leather beer mat / coaster with coin imprints

The two sides of the pendant look quite different even though the same mold was used

Seems I need some practice in hand sewing

The original badge, no clue where it's from, any information would be appreciated

The next ones will be a bit less provocative, either Eagle themed or American, later then Soviet (Gagarin)

Leather stamps made from coins

First shot, more to follow soon...

It's working better with harder leather, my new wallet's material is way too soft.
The suble imprint is interesting nonetheless as it's looking like real coins left their trace even though they would be a mirror image.
