As I continue to make reproductions of military seat pads, vehicle tops, pouches, bags, ect (damn near anything in the canvas, and leather spectrum) I am starting to poke around for more materials. A good example is now I have a customer who wants the WWII era bags that a .30 cal would go into. Luckily he isn't die hard enough where I NEED
the right color canvas. The originals for that are the khaki canvas, I am making some for him in O.D.
With this thread I am going to ask the community to either keep a watch for items that I would buy off of you if you happen to find them, or send me links.
One example: http://store.oldgrouch.biz/micamabyya.html
Olive Drab canvas by the yard. Between this and Brett that's where I get my O.D. canvas at.
I will update this from time to time, but please feel free to message me (or text if you have my number) if you frequent flea markets/militaria shows and may find some of these materials at a good cost. I will reimburse you, add shipping, and throw in a few extra bucks for your troubles (Depending on loot size
Things I am currently looking for:
Khaki canvas by the yard (15.00 or less per yard)
1" Ball end Caps (Less than this ebay guy at comes to 2.80 per piece) http://www.ebay.com/itm/111869641079?_trksid=p2060353.Banana Hammock38.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
