Common Questions About Leather Tool Rolls And Belts
Why buy a leather tool belt?
Whether you are a professional builder or a DIY enthusiast, one thing that can be really irritating is having to stop what you are doing in order to search for a particular tool. It’s a waste of time and it’s a waste of energy. That’s why a leather tool belt is such a convenient accessory. If you’ve never used one, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without and if you give one as a gift, you’ll be giving an accessory, which will provide years of service.
Is leather a good choice for a tool roll?
A tool roll is a convenient and compact way to store your tools, but if it’s not made of a sturdy material it won’t last very long. Tools are heavy objects and often, as with chisels, they have very sharp edges. Full-grain leather is an excellent choice for a tool roll because it is strong enough to carry the weight of your tools, it will provide them with good protection and it will not cut or tear. It is also a supple material, which can be rolled and rerolled without ever cracking or weakening.
Is leather a good choice for a tool belt?
A tool belt needs to be comfortable to wear and it needs to be strong enough to carry heavy, sharp objects over a sustained period of time. Leather is a natural, organic material; it ‘breathes’ which means that it is comfortable to wear against your body. It is also supple, which means that you won’t have stiff edges or seams digging into you while you work. Full-grain leather is renowned for its durability; your tools will not cut it or cause it to rip. A well-made leather tool belt will give you a lifetime of service.
What are the benefits of using a leather tool roll?
Quality tools are expensive, but if they are looked after they’ll last a lifetime, so it makes sense to store them carefully. A leather tool roll enables you to store tools in a compact and convenient covering that’s easy to carry. Leather is tough enough to withstand the weight and sharp edges of your tools but also soft and supple enough to prevent damage to blades that is likely to occur in a metal toolbox. A further advantage of a leather tool roll is the considerable amount of time that you’ll save in not having to sort through a jumble of tools, looking for the one you want. A tool roll enables you to carry exactly what you need in a safe, compact way.
How do you organise a tool roll?
How you choose to organise your tool roll will depend on the type of work that you are going to undertake. That means that you need to think through the job, step by step, and then you can pack the tools that you will need at each stage of the operation. Think about potential problems that you might encounter and pack those extra tools that might come in handy. You should position your tools within the tool roll in such a way that you are able to roll the tool roll neatly, without any awkward projections. Don’t overfill your tool roll, this will make your tool roll difficult to carry and may damage your tools. If you are going to need more tools, bring them in a bag or better still, invest in another tool roll.
