In addition to leatherworking I also do some woodworking and recently started making a full sized sewing clam to replace my go-to stitching pony. Doing research on the web, I found a video that is a sort of documentary intro to a company that makes them in France. The video, called ‘La Pince à Coudre‘ was made by Bastien Thomas and is very useful if you are considering making a sewing clam yourself or if you simply want to know more about how they are made.
Very fine video on your pony clamp. I am in the process of building myself a few different styles to handle my new found hobby. Thanks for the great craftsmanship.
I appreciate you taking the time to read our post!
In this film I am making a traditional saddlers clam.
I do not even understand how I stopped up here, however I thought this post used to be great.
I do not realize who you’re however certainly you are going to a famous blogger should you aren’t already.
Thanks for the encouragement! I’m glad you enjoyed the post!
WOW just what I was searching for. Came here by searching for website
Glad we were able to help and thanks for reading!
Did you ever end up making a stitching clam?
I’ll admit: I’m more a woodworker than leatherworker but I plan to save for a clam (Probably ship one to the US from Abbey England). Although I’m pretty decent at reverse engineering products from photos, I haven’t done steam-bending before, nor do I have a band saw/turning saw/frame saw. Because of that, it doesn’t sound like a fun project to me.
This is still a work in progress. It sounds like you can appreciate the difficulty, despite your skill!
