Question About Money Cartridge Belt
« on: June 24, 2022, 07:34:39 AM »
What is the best leather to use for making a money cartridge belt and what is the best source for it ? I like the textured looking leather used by many but am not sure what I need to look for . Don’t want to Oder the wrong thing so I thought I would turn to the experts on here for help.

That's a good question, Mike. Here's a thread where we covered the leather used in making money belts. I added a link to that thread in our FAQ thread so others can find it easily, now.

I like to use milled leather which was a textured look.

How wide do you guys usually make the billeted part or part that actually buckles?

The width of the billet will depend on the inside dimension of the belt buckle you choose.. it’s common for it to be 1-1/2” wide.

Yes, that is why I was asking because I wanted to know what size buckle I should buy. Thanks

The outside of the buckle should be no wider than the width of the belt body. If you can go to a leather store (Tandy/Leather Factory for example), it should be easy. If not, what is the width of the belt body? I may be able to check my inventory of buckles and recommend the buckle. Then the billet width can be determined by the inside dimension of the buckle.

A i.5" buckle is pretty standard. Belts are approx 3" and up. Some come very wide, to take 45.70s.

I probably made more 3 inch wide than anything else but my personal favorite is 3 1/2 or so. My personal rig I wear mostly now is a 4 inch wide belt.

Cliff, that wider money belt looks good. It must be comfortable to wear.

That is a beautiful rig. Would love to see more of it.
