Re: I Yam Speechless

If you should want a buckle made you could have a silver smith do a sand cast or lost wax cast for it. I did an internet search and there are several places that can do this.

Re: Coming together.

Sixgun’s (bubba)idea is ok, but I would use a feeler gauge and just cut the needed size. Then when and if it gets moisture on it you can take it apart, clean and oil. When you go back together it should be in the same place.
