    Thanks all.
    Update: (both here and on the first post).

    Hello all,
    While I was originally hoping to reopen the queue to new orders last month I am forced to keep it closed until at least the start of 2016.
    Unfortunately, I have been dealing with a Repetitive Stress Injury for all of 2015, and even with frequent breaks for stretching and such it continues to get worse.
    I will be emptying the queue completely, then taking a bit of rehabilitation time to heal before reopening for new orders.
    NOTE: this does NOT effect any existing deposited orders, this is for new enquiries only.
    Thank you all for your patience while I slog through this.

    It really shows the quality of an Artificer Custom Sporran when I say that since getting my commission from you I have not worn any other sporran. I have about 10 other sporrans to choose from and more than a few of them are from quality makers. Please take care of yourself, your customers will be there when you have had a complete recovery.

    Sorry to hear you're not so well and I do hope recovery is swift. I too frequently enjoy the custom sporran you made for me. Your sporrans are superb but don't damage your health over them. Best regards as ever mee ol' mate!!

    artificer, If it's carpel tunnel syndrome from the leather work it may take longer to fully heal. Repetitive hard gripping and hammering ( shock loading ) are the big killers.

    I got mine from work using tweezers to handle tiny thin light samples - about 80,000 to 160,000 a year. Pulling them off adhesive exposure fixtures.
    I toughed it out popping ibuprofen like candy for years. I finally did the rehabs, tool modifications and therapy etc. but didn't truly get to fully recovered for about 2 years after retiring at 55.

    Pants is only a present tense verb here. I once panted, but it's all cool now.
