Cobra vs Fortuna skiving machine

Recommended Posts

Hello, my husband is interested in purchasing a skiving machine for leather that will be used to bind books. He's been advised to purchase a Cobra or Fortuna machine. Which machine would you recommend, and why? What is important for him to look out for when using it for leather book covers? And where can either of these machines be purchased in the US? Thank you

FORTUNA is top of the line if you can find a new one or an old one. COBRA, COWBOY, and some others are clones of the FORTUNA.

I have a COWBOY for sale that is both top and bottom feed. Perfect condition and there are several feed rollers with the unit.

For the CHRISTMAS SEASON I will sell for $1250. You would need to pay the shipping. These things weigh about 90 pounds. Has table and Servo motor that adds more weight to the unit. IMG_3101.jpg

If interested and need more info just let me know.
