Thread: Telescope case repairs

    Telescope case repairs

    I have a Gray's telescope that I use on the hill all the time. However, the stitching on the case is fraying and needs to be repaired. Any recommendations? I used a saddle repairer for a cartridge bag a while back but he has since retired

    Is the leather okay, or has it worn away as well?

    If it's okay then why not consider stitching it yourself? It's really not that difficult and the needles/thread can be picked up on eBay and elsewhere for a few quid.

    My stitching is pretty rubbish, but I've made a lot of pouches for knives, mobile phones, pens, etc. as well as repairing a gun slip.

    The saddle stitching is the easiest bit - see How to saddle stitch leather
