Custom Cowboy Boots & Shoes Discussion Board: Soles sewn on a McKay stitcher
I recently half soled a pair of men's dress shoes and stitched the soles on with my DN2000. My concern is this. What can I put over the stitching to stop moisture from coming up through the stitch holes?? Thanks, AL

Many years ago I worked for a fellow who'd run the cement brush over the stitches. But then that was a chain stitch McKay, and not a lock stitch like you have on the DN2000. It was intended to keep the loops from coming undone. Assuming you've stitched in a channel, it might help some.
My own preference would be to sell the customer and apply a thin Topy sole guard on top of the sole.
