Boot bulling issue
Posted 21 November 2012 - 11:01 pm
Started bulling the toe caps on the boots, didn't have any problems with the first one but for some reason I have a patch on the second one that just doesn't want to bull up.
I've tried all sorts and its still not having it, if anyone has any suggestions/tips/advice it would be appreciated.
Like I said its just one particular patch, the rest of the toecap is shining up ok. It looks like it may not be a smooth piece of leather. It's doing my head in!!

Unfortunately with the state of the finances in the MoD, the quality of the leather on shoes now is pretty poor and a lot of lads where struggling to bull them. The shoes looked like orange peel it really was awful! My dad taught me how to spoon it, works a treat. I'm hoping that I can use my boots I have already because I have one pair with Tornado Nose Cone on them, a pair of shoes painted, boots bees waxed....would save a bit of time not having to start on a new pair of shoes lol.
Been 50 years since I spooned my boots. Nice to know some things carry on
