Q: How long does it take to fix my
glove and get it back to me?
A: I ask for a week once your glove arrives. I
do my best to get it done in less time than that. I then send your glove back to you via the USPS Priority Mail, which
takes 1 - 3 days, depending on where you live.

How do I know I can trust you to send my glove back?
That's a great question. When I started my repair business, and before I had this web site, I used a classified
ad on ebay, where I'm known as deland76, to offer my services. I also began selling items there. Now
I've had several hundred sales on ebay. I ask you to read my feedback from my customers. You
can see what customers who have done business with me have to say. Please click on this ebay link to view

Q: What if I need special work done on my
A: If you have special needs for your glove, please contact me and
tell me what those needs are. Some I can help with, some I can't. It helps if you can email photos of
the problem area.
Q: My lacing is ok, but I'd like to have
it all changed to a different color. Can you do that?
Sure can. Lots of people change the color of the lace to their school color or their team color. I have several
colors to choose from. Ask me about yours.
Q: Are there any repairs you can't do?
A: Yes, there sure are. I have a glove that I used in high school that
my bulldog, Munson, chewed the pinky finger off of. An A2000 at that. Had to get rid of it (the glove, not the
dog). I couldn't put a new pinky finger on it. Some things I can fix, some I can't. Just ask.
I'll give you an honest reply.
Q: Why can't I just relace my own glove?
I can buy one of those repair kits a lot cheaper than you charge.
A: You can
do it yourself. That's how I got started. But those kits only have 1 piece of lacing, and it's not nearly
of the quality that I use. I know. And the tools are hard to use. I don't use them. I've found
better tools. So you buy the kit, try to use the tool and get frustrated, your lace isn't long enough, and you have
to go buy another kit just for another piece of lace. Or you find a lace supplier and order some. But you find
out how expensive good lacing is. And you have to pay more in shipping than you ever expected. Then you have your
lace, but you can't exactly figure out the pattern the lace should follow. It can get pretty confusing.
But you finally finish. And your glove looks ok, sort of, it even works, for a while, until the weak lacing breaks again.
Then it's time to send your glove to me. Look, I'm no rocket scientist. This isn't that
hard to do. But it does help to have experience. And it does help to know the best suppliers of the best materials
to use. And it is good to know that I guarantee my work. So go ahead. Take the big step and send your
glove to me so I can fix it right. You'll be glad you did.
