I always wondered but never asked my farrier why he had that stuff.Enjay said:My old farrier used kydex to help treat a colt who had done some pretty severe damage to his hoof wall, and he gave me a couple of sheets to use to lengthen some slide boots for my mare, for which I used a hair dryer to form it, but that's about the extent of my experience with it.
You just need enough Kydex to fold over the firearm once it's pliable so the amount is determined by the size of the firearm.mark_b said:Redhat - that is a nice looking holster that you made. I like the riveted belt clip better that the formed Kydex belt loop. How much Kydex did you use to make it?
I think you would run into problems with making a flat surface unless you could support the Kydex somehow. To pull the vacuum I plan on using a shop vac which draws a lot more volume than the sealer.Tigerstripe said:i wonder if a vaccum bag sealer would work.
