So I'm going to make a chain lead and I have everything sitting at the house for it (had it from previous projects) but I need a leather strip (for the handle) and rivets. Does anyone know of a local store (obviously we are from different places) that would carry something like this? Hobby store? hardware store?

Thoughts?

See if you have a Tandy leather or leather factory where you are. Look for any leather store that sells leather hides and leather making goods. the only down side to making a leather handle is you are probably going to have to rivet it together and without a hand press or professional press you run the risk of the rivet failing. Unless you know how to braid leather. I make leashes and braid all my handles, I have a hand press but I do not trust it for handles, I would only trust a professional style press for that.
