I really appreciate the effort you are putting into your thread. Very informative.
I second that, nice work.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
thats nice work, I use a electricans pouch on one side and a leather holster on the other, also use suspenders that take the weight off the hips and transfer to the shoulders
i have always wanted a leather harness with a "D" ring on the back
instead of the nylon..for working up in the air, scaffold,roof etc..
I like it like that !
and, It's like that now!!!!!!!!!!!!
Back around '72, I went to work in a state mental hospital. It was common to walk between buildings through steam tunnels and now and then you'd need a tool wherever you were.
Unlike service plumbing, you wouldn't always have a toolbox with you, so I decided that I wanted to carry tools like the electricians did. I got a pouch and loaded it with things like needlenose pliers and channellocks and screwdrivers and a small crescent or two. It was invaluable and I carried it for the two years I worked there.
OK fellas, here are some photos of the pouch with tools inside. I hope this is what you had in mind. As a side note this pouch was made using scrap pine as a form. That's how I was able to make the rounded curves. The blocks of wood were shaped with a rasp file in about 15 min. Unlike the other screwdriver holster I made for the forum demo using the tool itsef I just nailed down three shaped blocks on a piece of scrap plywood and starting in the middle just used my hands and pushed the leather until it looked right.

You are on to something. I have my leathercraft merit-badge. But like most of us on here, just dont have the time to make something like this. If you would sell, I would buy. I garauntee there'd be a line behind me wanting one or several of what you've come up with.

spring passed i had found and purchased a tool belt made for plumbers, it was the only one i had ever seen and i was very content with it, one side had a torch holster with a few pockets the other was a larger and deep pouch wich could easily hold channel locks had a space for a maglite a prybar tape holder, a chain and t-bar simmilar to electricians for black tape except its for teflon tons of bells and whistles, the downside was the "clipteck" technology wich enabled you to easily remove the pouches, (the larger of the 2 even had a fold out stand). after a couple months i was doing a demo job and busted both clips makeing the belt a fashion item and the pouches floor decorations. it had a lifetime garauntee and when i returned it to my disbelief they had updated the tool belt line to something more durable than these plastic clips. well the plumbing belt was discontinued for some reason or an other. i took the store credit and got tools instead. ive since searched google many a times trying to locate a similar rig and within the past month i decided i would probably have to make it myself. hopefully i can make a torch holster than can cradle a rum bottle just as perfectly as the i had to return . thanks for the inspiration.
