Watch Tucker at work – video

Posted by Rob Longenecker on March 27th, 2007

Many of you liked the pictures I posted months ago of Tucker at work. Now I have a short video of Tucker making a pancake holster for a small revolver.

At the end I asked Tucker to sit for a short interview. As you’ll see, he’s a man of few words.

Here’s the video.

    Great video!
    Perhaps I’m an oddball (I’m sure my wife would agree with that) but I find watching the video very relaxing. It’s nice to be able to watch a craftsman make a fine product with his own two hands. It seems like just about everything is automated these days…heck, I put 75 cents into a machine today and it spat (or should I say shat?) out a cup of coffee. Good to know there’s still folks around who take pride in making a quality product by hand.

    Like most videos that come out today, there wasn’t enough nudity or violence :>)

    I loved seeing what steps tucker takes to put together a holster. Made me appreciate the holster I own even more. Definitely ups the pride in ownership seeing a skilled craftsman in action. Makes me regret not buying a tucker holster for my model 29 during the Christmas sale. Wonder what a video of the uncle mike’s factory would look like?

    Thanks for the video. I enjoyed it. Though I understand there are certain “trade secrets,” and suspect that each maker has a slightly different way of doing many parts of the task, I’d really like to see a more detailed version. I was going to suggest that Tucker narrate it, but suspect that getting him to talk that much would be much trickier than making a holster…
    Thanks again, I’m anxious to see the next one!

    It was good to see Tucker in action.

    Growing up, a neighbor made western holsters and he’d let us kids watch and then work on scraps. I still have a scar on my hand from an edging tool gone awry.

    And stamping tools….you aren’t suppose to see light coming through the leather, huh, Tucker?

    Watching the video makes me appreciate my HF1 even more.

    Great indide look! I appreciate my holster even more now! Thanks for taking the time to show us how it’s done.

    I enjoyed watching the video,Mr.Tucker makes the task look so easy even though we all know that it is anything but that. I would like to see more in the future. I am eagerly awaiting my holster all the more after seeing the skill of the maker in the video!.
