    Heritage Dye-Box II

    For Sale - Heritage Dye-Box II I am selling a Heritage Dye-Box II. I bought it directly from Weaver Leather. It is in excellent working conditions. The rollers are metal, not the newer plastic now sold with it from Weaver. The metal makes them heavier and very stable when rolling. There are two pairs of pads. Both are used, but still in working order. The scrapers are the newer type. In fact, I helped Weaver design these scrapers. The originals did not work well. These do a very good job of removing the excess dye. Here is a link to Weaver's website showing the Heritage Dye-Box II. http://www.weaverleathersupply.com/catalog/item-detail/9029/001/168. As you will see, a new one sells for $800.00. I am asking $560. Buyer pays the shipping. It can ship Priority Mail or UPS Ground. Local pick up is welcome too. I am located in Wildwood, MO.
  9. Weaver Leather Master Tools Hand-Operated Clicker for leather and apparel Used hand operated clicker from Weaver Leather. Perfect working condition. Nothing wrong, just bolt down and use. Comes with bolts even. Clicker pad has very little wear. Shipping will have to be by freight. Pickup in San Francisco available. No Returns due to this being shipped via freight and in perfect working order. I will need a written confirmation from you stating that you understand this is a no returns auction that will be legally binding. Item will come shipped in a sturdy wood box and will be very well packed. If you choose to pickup - no shipping cost. $1000

    Weaver 4-ton manual clicker

    We ordered a Weaver 4-ton manual clicker, but it just won't do what we want it to. We tried a couple of pulls on our cutting board, but no happiness happened. Stock photos of the unit abound, but we can send pics of this one if you are suspicious this is not brand-new. We are in for $1200; if you are looking at retail that's more like $1400, so there is a possibility of a bargain here for you. Local pick-up, or freight around $150ish depending on how far you are from southeastern Pennsylvania. E-mail leatherman54@hotmail.com or call John 215 514 1989. This little charmer needs to find a good home soon!
  11. I have a like new Weaver Leather Heritage Foot Press and a full set of dies and adapters for holes, rivets, spots, diamond spots, crystals, and snaps. I paid $1650 in 2015 for all. I never used it! I will take $1100 OBO. You pick-up in Kentucky or pay freight. ************* Also for sale, I have $600 dollars worth of high quality embellishments... buckles, spots, tubular rivets, snaps, hole punch, crystals, and more. BEST DEAL - Take it all (press and embellishments) for $1500 plus shipping or come to Kentucky to get it. All this would be at least $2250 at wholesale prices. SAVE $750 TODAY! Message me and I will email you a link to a complete list and photos.

  13. 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.

    Manual Clicker Comparison

    I'm in the market for a manual clicker and am considering both Weaver's hand-operated clicker and the Lucris MA Series III Manual 5 ton press. Can anyone who has experienced both tell me which they prefer? Is one better built than the other, or more powerful, or easier to use? Thanks for any advice.
  17. Hello, I am wondering if anyone has used Weaver's footpress - the MT900. I have the Heritage one and like it a lot and need one more, but thought I might look into the MT900. It fits the automatic rivet hopper which would be a plus. Does it have the same throat depth? Any other info anyone has on how it compares to the Heritage footpress? Thanks!

    Did I Get Bad Veg-Tan?

    I recently bought a side of Veg-tan from Weaver leather, and had it cut into 3/4" straps for making a bulk order of camera straps for a customer. When I received the leather straps (side) I started looking them over and most of them have a good 40-50" of quality leather, then it starts to degrade into this more fibrous portion that feels like its delaminating. Is this normal as whole sides go, or did they sell me a bullshit side of leather, cut it up and hope I'd not notice? I'll post pics as soon as I get home from the office, but I was hoping to get 2 straps out of each single weaver cut strap, but because of this nasty portion of leather it doesn't look like I'll be able to, on almost every long strap... Did I get a side with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_rot_%28leather%29 that isn't red?
  19. Weaver Hand-Operated Clicker Retail: $1,450. FOR SALE: $1,000 Condition: Like new (Used Once) / Fully Functional See Manufacturer Specs Location: Boulder, CO Pick-up only. The Weaver Hand-Operated Clicker weighs too much to ship via normal carriers, and therefore requires a custom crate and freight handler. Buyer needs to bring a truck, ramp and and dolly to load it. I used this clicker for a single project. It is like new. Interested parties please send PM (private message).
  20. I'm looking for a manual clicker press, but I need one with a small footprint. Preferably one that is mountable on a workbench. Let me know if you're getting rid of one. Thanks! I'm open to a Weaver, Lucris, or similar design.

    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!
  24. Hello! So perhaps my first useful, actually giving something back, post ever! I was just talking to Weaver on the phone about some questions I had, and in explaining why their minimum "First order" for a new customer just went from $250 to $500 dollars the woman said it's mainly because they just launched a RETAIL WEBSITE. http://www.weaverleathersupply.com/ I searched and didn't see any threads mentioning this, so I figured I'd pass it along. A lot of people have discussed wanting to order this that and the other from them, but couldn't because they didn't have a tax id/business license. Now they can! They just kind of "did it" without any big notification as best as I can tell, so not too many people have probably noticed yet. She did say at some point in the not too distant future they will be implementing a Wholesale ordering site too, but they wanna square away the retail site first. So after looking through my catalog, and looking at the website, there is definitely a pretty good price jump. For instance 1 Master Tools punch I was looking at went from $51.60 to $80.00. Another tool went from $26.95 to $41.50. So it looks like it's about a 54-55% jump over their wholesale catalog. Sides seemed almost exactly the same jump. I only spot checked a couple items, so there MAY be some stuff that's a smaller increase. For the time being they have a 15% discount promo code on the website, so that helps. That said, most of the other brands of tools they carry there are comparable-ish to some of the other "main line" leather supply companies regular pricing. With those companies discount clubs taken into account, or just hunting around on Google, you can certainly beat their retail site prices. But their wholesale still seems pretty darn untouchable for a lot of stuff. More importantly than all the common stuff I guess would be getting some of the weird odds and ends they have others don't have. Such as their Master Tools line, which sounds pretty awesome. It'll cost ya more, but perhaps worth it for some of their items. Anyway, enough rambling. Check it out!
  25. I have a kick press that I'm looking to sell. The ebay listing says local pick-up only, but I can ship via freight if you're willing to pay for it. Here's the ebay listing: http://www.ebay.com/...e-/271224272220 Thanks for looking!
