    Marnus, so you reuse the kydex when you make alterations or do you use new kydex sheets and create new holsters?
    No I use the same holster and just modify it where necessary with a heat gun. So you keep the overall shape and only heat up the part you need adjusted.

    Where do you guys get your tools from? It seems to me that the entry point for starting is pretty expensive.

    Which tools? To make a press can get foam from few different places, but yes good quality foam is pricey. Othe than that, if you are handy with tools and DIY, you can do most of the stuff

    How do you set rivets and caps? The tool I saw for that is 500 bucks. Looks like a simple punch.

    There is a range of rivets and tools that are sold at most sewing shops. Brand name escapes me hey have punches and die sets that were less than R100 when I bought a few years back. You can also get snaps at sewing places.

    Just googled this up. Looks identical to the ones I bought ago. They come in various diameters.
