Default Re: How to make Traditional Bell Bewits and fit them

Once you are happy with the fit, mark the leather with a pen or something so that you know where to punch the final hole.

Now remove the Bewit from the bird and punch the final hole, if you have a revolving plier type punch you may be able to do this on the bird but if this is your first time fitting them then I would recommend removing them as accidents can happen.

With the final hole punched and the Bewit back around the birds leg, check the fit and finally pass the end back through the final hole, like so.

Finally just pull it tight and trim off some of the excess leather if its way too long.

And thats all there is too it.
