On Making your own Gear

So I've come to the conclusion that I want to try my hand at making my own gear, or at least part of it. I have a few designs in mind but would like to hear if anyone has any advice on doing this?

Anyone else here ever make their own custom gear?

been making custom gear for a year now, get a strong sewing machine (old manual machines are usually good, I'm using a Juki DL-5550). Use #69 bonded nylon thread + needle size #19, and you can punch through thick layers of material, even hard plastic inserts. After that comes skills : master thread tension, double-triple pass stitch, and speed.

Do you use a surging machine for fabrics?

A stitching awl and waxed thread can do wonders on thick webbing and canvas if you're going for a vintage or wasteland look. I fixed up an RD-54 with one.
