  3. Help With Ron's Edger

    Just purchased a #2 Montana edger from Ron's to primarily use for wallets. I generally use around 4oz leather and they suggested the #2 to see if I like it and it didn't remove much of anything from a single piece of 4oz. II'm going to exchange it but not sure which to get. My wallets are on thicker side but I don't like too aggressive of a bevel. From those with experience would you recommend the Montana or Round and which size? I understand the Montana is for thin leathers so seems I'd need at least a #3. Was thinking a #2 in the round.
  4. It's been said the best way to find something you've lost is to replace it. Well, I can verify that one. I miss placed several of my hand tools and after nearly a year of not being able to find them I started replacing the ones I was missing the most. As luck would have it I found said hand tools one week to the day after I purchased the last thing I needed. Up for sale here are 2 C.S.Osborne edegers. Size 2 and size 0. I purchased the 2 about 9 months ago and has been used maybe 5 times. I purchased the 0 exactly one week ago. It's been used twice. Both of these edegers are very sharp and in perfect condition. They edege dry leather with minimal effort and on wet leather they glide along like they are cutting air. Price is 25 each+ shipping for the Osborne's & 20 for the Ctaftool. Some may wonder why I don't just keep them because having a back up is always nice. I have multiples of all the sizes allready , no need for another set of multiples.
  5. Weaver Leather Economy EZ Edge strap edger Purchased in 2015. Still sharp and like new. Asking $200. Manufacturers Description: At a value price, this machine can round two edges simultaneously with ease. Edge the top and simply flip strap over to edge the bottom. Compact, hand-operated machine does not decrease strap width. Accommodates 1/2" to 3" strap widths. Starter gig is included. Easily mounts to your workbench with screws (not included). Users' Perspective: Great for making collars, leashes, and bridles. I used this for about 6 months. Made clean edges quick and easy. I could round the edge on a whole strap at one time. In my opinion, works best on 3/4 inch to 3 inch wide leather. Leather should be thick enough as to not bend down the middle too easily. I'm now doing jewelry professionally. Leather still a hobby, but thinning the tools out.
  6. I'm selling a vintage pricking wheel, 8spi (though you can put any size you want on it). I bought it in France. The shape is the same as the ones that were made by Blanchard, but the marking on this one says Lutz Par (for Lutz and Kremp, Paris saddlery tools company). It's in good vintage condition. Some surface pitting, but overall, pretty good - $100 (includes shipping to continental US). I'm also selling 2 Vergez-Blanchard edgers (size 0 and 1). I bought these new directly from VB, but use my Ron's edgers much more often. Both are in great condition. I polished them, so they are actually better than when they came from the manufacturer - $35 each or $60 for both. Both prices include shipping to continental US. Last item for sale is Blanchard manual edge creaser. Bought it from Fine Leatherworking couple of years ago, but since then I switched to electric creaser and don't use this one anymore - $40 (includes shipping to continental US). If you would like to send it somewhere beyond CONUS, send me a message and we'll work something out.
  7. Barry King Edgers.

    Hello all, its been a while. Anyway, I am in the market for a new edge beveler, and I have been told that Barry King Tools makes some good edgers for the money. I was looking to either purchase their grooved edger or their common edger. They told me that the common edger gives more of a rounded edge than the grooved edger, but that the grooved edger lasts longer. I havent really had great luck with precision and consistency with the style of edger that the common edger is. The grooved edger seems more like Tandy's pro edger, which is what i'm used to. The problem is, the smallest size pro edger tandy sells is a #2, which isnt small enough, and their new fine edger is too small. I'm working a lot with 4/5 and 5/6 oz leather, and the #2 tandy sells takes too much off and does not always cut a perfectly straight bevel. I guess my question is, does anyone have any experience with the sizing of barry kings edgers and possibly how the sizing compares to tandy's? What oz of leather is recommended to use with each size beveler? Do you think the grooved edger or the common edger would be more ideal? Thank you for the input! Zayne
  8. Hand Operated "EZ Edge" Strap Edger. Slightly used and in Great Shape. This comes with 2 sets of Blades size 0 (up to 8oz leather) and size 2 (10-14oz. Leather). These blades are still very sharp. I did not edge very many belts or straps with this machine. This machine edges all four edges at the same time. Brand new through Weaver Leather, this machine sells for $1300 and the extra set of blades sell for $185. All this and free shipping for $1000. I can except PayPal as well as a check but will wait for the check to clear before shipping. The Weaver Leather Link- http://www.weaverleathersupply.com/Catalog/ItemContent.aspx?ItemNumber=9036
  9. I have these tools I bought at an auction a while back. I need help identifying what their use is. I do mainly saddle and harness work, so if they are for shoe/boot work, they are for sale or trade. I haven't found a use for them yet but Maybe if I knew what they were for, who knows ??? That awl haft is solid iron. Why would you need a haft made of iron ?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  10. Best Edge Beveler? Best Method?

    I was just wondering what everyones favorite edge bevelers are, and also what you use for thinner leather (3/4 or 4/5 oz). I have used the tandy edge beveler #2 as thats the smallest size it comes in, keen edge beveler which I rarely use, and their new craftool pro classic edger size #00 and fine edger. I use the #2 edge beveler the most, as it seems to cut smother and is a lot easier to control than the new pro classic edgers. I got the new #00 for thinner leather, but I hate the design, it is a lot harder to keep it at a consistent angle, and seems to cut about as much off as the #2 edge beveler. I wish Tandy sold their edge beveler smaller than a #2, as that would probably work better with thinner leather. The #2 has a really hard time with 4/5 oz and smaller. I can use the #2 on 4/5 oz if i put another piece of leather underneath, but it cuts off too much of the edge, and by the time I go to burnish, the edge is too thin and ends up folding over, and looking like garbage. Ideally, I would want to cut off as little as possible, so the edge isn't extremely round, more flat. But when I have tried that, the edge still folds over slightly on front and back, and doesn't look good. Does anyone have a method for getting a more flat (slightly rounded) edge, without the leather folding over? I am open to using another brand beveler, I would just like to hear everyones favorites first! Thanks! Zayne
  11. Best Edger For 3/4 Oz Leather?

    Hi there! I am needing to bevel the edges of some 3/4 oz. Hermann Oak veg tan leather. I have a #2 edge beveler from Tandy that I have always used on 8/9 oz. leather but of course it doesn't work on the 3/4oz. I am looking into buying an edger or edge beveler and I was wondering what the best size would be to get. I have been looking at the Barry King Common Edger Size: 0. Would that be the correct size for the weight I am working with? Also, is there a difference between an edge beveler and an edger? I see that only edgers come in sizes below 2. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

  14. Barry King Edger Question

    Anyone used a Barry King grooved edger? Any thoughts on it? I'm considering purchasing a set, but I would love some feedback before I do. And pro or cons vs their common edger? My primary goal is a nice round edge on the leather, and a tool that is easy to sharpen.
  15. Edgers

    Hi everyone, I need to replace my edgers and upgrade, the low-cost ones that I now have have seen there better days and they're hard to keep sharp. Does anyone have an opinion on who makes the best edgers mostly #1 and #2 standard type? I am aware of most of the makers and would like some input from someone who has experience with the better quality made edgers get alot of use, hold a good edge and cut smoothly. Thanks
  16. Question About Edger Sizes

    Hello again! Back for more awesome information! So I'm about to pull the trigger on buying a good chunk of my first bunch of tools, and I still haven't been able to definitively find the answer to a pretty basic question looking online. Just some stuff that vaguely touches on the subject. I want to work with fairly heavy leather for belts etc. I want to do 12 oz and 14 oz. What size edger do I need? We should talk actual measurements in inches because the size number changes by brand. What I want to be able to accomplish is a completely rounded (so basically a half circle) edge on the pieces. Some stuff I'll probably leave squared off, but some pieces I will want round. I believe for this task I want the "Common" edger, not Western or some other type? It's not really clear with some what the difference is in the end product from looking online. Some websites have listed things on the bigger sizes size 4 or 5 (which is 13/64 or 7/32 etc) "Good for heavy leather 12oz+" etc. So I suppose the simple thing to ask is: do I want an edger with measurements that are the same as the actual thickness of my leather? It popped into my head one might want half the thickness of the actual leather since you do the top and bottom, but that doesn't seem right either. So should I try to match edger size with leather thickness? If so, how much fluff room is there to work with? 12 oz is 3/16, which is commonly available. 14 oz is 7/32, also available. So do I need both sizes optimally, or can I just get one since they're FAIRLY close and make it work? Obviously getting the "perfect" one later. Also while on the subject, I've read a lot discussing brands. A lot of people swear by some of the really boutique brands... And those may lie in my future... But they're just a tad bit more than I want to spend right now. I need to spring for numerous super basic tools, and I don't want to go too overboard with $100 single tools and whatnot when it sounds like 30 or 50 dollar ones are pretty solid. After looking at pricing I'm thinking CS Osborne or Weaver Master Tools. Whadda you guys think? I'm strongly considering Weaver punches over Osborne because it sounds like theirs are a bit better for not much price difference. This seems to be fairly consistent thought on the board, although it might be mainly that the Weaver ones come better sharpened from the factory. If I go with placing a Weaver order (the minimum is all that's holding me back since I have a Tax ID) I can pick and choose since they carry both. So are the Weaver edgers better, or Osborne? Thank you in advance, you guys are great!
