It’s been a long time since I had a gloat. I was on vacation in the U.S. a couple of weeks ago. I dropped into an antique store in Mitchell South Dakota and was surprised to see a “Leather working tool” in a display case.

I never thought I would see a real Windsor Beader but there it was. Because it was a “special” leather working tool, the price was $25. It has both cutting wheels and is fabulous condition. I’m happy to add it to my ATC as something I will indeed use.

-- Regards,

I’m thinking I might have passed that by for $25, not knowing what it was. Have more information on it or links?

Hi Tim,

Here is a bit of information from Doug Orr in Ottawa, Ontario. (A great tool dealer by the way).
