Does anyone have a good pattern for making crimping boards? I know I saw one somewhere, but I can't find it.

Where can I get some crimp board screws or what can I make some from?

Jim you stated ealier that you have a pattern for crimping boards? will you email me a copy of this? My email is: Designstudios@hotmail.com


do crimping boards have to follow the line of the custom leg in order to be a good crimping board or does it matter?

How thick of wood stalk should crimping boards be made of?

Should it always be hard wood?

Can crimping boards be made of plastic as well as wood?

Do the crimping boards follow the line and style of the boot's toe style?

A lot of questions. My crimp boards are 1-1.5 inches thick made of hard maple. Dick Anderson makes some of plastic. toe style really doesn't make any difference. Crimp boards should approxamate the transition curve from vamp to top of your last.

Thanks Don for your reply. I really apprciate your responce. It helps! i was always curious about that. If you look at old books...they just tell you to trace, but they don't say what to trace. It is frustrating. However, your responce made it clear.

Has anyone placed a last on a scanner to get the curve of the top of one's last to the vamp? flatten the 3 d to 2d so to speak?
