And if anyone has a spare Imperial Officer's Cap (Black) or Belt they would like to unload, feel free to bring them!
See you Sunday!

Excellent Ted! There are a couple of highly recommended makers on the IOC boards. I just ordered one for myself from ASU Marine. I'm sure some folks at the party can suggest a belt maker.

What about Rocky Roe ice cream? Sloth love Chunk. I've got some stuff to work on. Plus the room will be filled with experts. I have plenty of questions. I have a Dremel, dremel bits, rivet gun, different size rivets, snaps. Pretty much all the stuff that will be needed to beat up plastic.

I know it's a haul out here for a lot of folks for sure, but I've got a great place to host and I've been wanting to organize one for quite awhile now. I know we'll have a great time, help some people along and get some things done. I hope to see as many as possible, it looks like we'll have a great turn out!

Is there appropriate black leather available at Tandy Leather in Elgin? They're very close and you should be able to get it there. I've made a holster for my snowie and I know that Gaza's made at least two or three of them, not too mention there'll be several others who've done tks there too.

Ha, ha! Me too! It's a lot of fun to build things on your own, so it's got to be even better with others!

Tandy does have it but you might not be able to buy a small piece of what you need. Ask the guys there if they have any remnants off to the side. Otherwise your looking at buying a big piece for around $80-100. You could make a bunch them.
