Default Belt Buckles

Any of you guys have any cool buckles to show off and where did you get them? Iíve worked with two older journeymen that had powerhouse buckles and they were pretty awesome. Both got them on the road working big jobs. I top out in a few weeks so havenít had an opportunity to travel at all but curious if thereís a brother/sister making them. Thanks

Google has plenty. You may be able to find someone on Etsy to make one for a particular power plant if that's what you're looking for.

A few years ago there was a post here, with a link to an article, about a couple electricians that jumped another electrician over his belt buckle.

I can’t remember if it was at a campground. I think they were travelers. Who knows, maybe FLEs?

Check out brotherhood custom on Facebook. Pat makes good stuff. If you see one on a tip board, it's most likely one he made.
