A rowel mounted in a forked carrier, with teeth in varying numbers per inch. Used to mark the pegging awl holes, for placement of the wood dowels in the outer sole of the boot (and heel stacks).
Used for piercing holes in the inner sole to prepare the way for the linen thread that will attach the boot vamp to said sole.
Stacked leather handled hammer-style mallet used for hitting pegging awl haft, amongst other things. (handmade by Barry King Tools).
Weighted for wood peg placement and one of many fussy options for all-purpose whacking.
Personally found deer antler tools shaped for various forms of sole leather burnishing.
L-R: double-edged hooped peg knife, swivel-head peg rasp and round-faced peg breaker; used to clean up any protruding pegs inside the boot once the last has been pulled.
Used to transfer various measurements from one boot to the other. And to reminisce about furniture making days.
For notching heel counter to enable it to wrap around the inner sole when the boot is put on the last. Acquired from a farm supply store, of course.
With serrated jaws designed for gripping leather and an anvil base that serves as both a fulcrum and hammer. Used for straining leathers over the last. And for swooning over.
Used for pulling the vamp onto the last around the middle of the foot; the short handle is used as a fulcrum.
