  1. Ok lads and lasses, I'm officially "too busy" and cannot handle both biz's concurrently. If you are interested in a working business with national and international accounts, a decent ad campaign and that's kinda fun.... EMAIL ME! langloisandy@gmail.com Cheers, Andy
  2. Ok lads and lasses, check your shelves, under benches, ask around. I have some super thin, VERY detailed projects inbound and need a dedicated machine for it. (Honestly, I have no clue about this sort of thing, I run a 669 and a 205 daily, small machines scare me!). Old stuff is cool, I'm good with vintage weirdness. Hand crank is fine, a pulley is better. Hark back to the olden days of those oddball Wilcox machines, like a teensy cylinder arm, but different. THAT would work for this job. Pop me an email at andy@andysleather.com if you have something. Thanks so much! Andy
  3. This has been my “side gig” for the past 25 years. My main leather business is VERY busy and the bag side of things needs a new home. While the products are fairly simple to make, a mildly experienced leather craftsperson can easily do most of the work. I’ve designed all the patterns and such to be made in a timely fashion for production. What you get: -Equipment and tools: 1: Adler 669 (the new one) w/piles of thread, bobbins and needles, Servo, 110V, LED etc etc. 2: A new Skiver (light use) Comes with table/motor etc. Ready to work. 2.5: Tippmann clicker with compressor and dies associated with this business and product line. 3: Leather, Usually I keep 5-10 whole hides/sides on hand. 3.5: Edging machine, dyes, glues, tools for bags. 3.75: Hot press with logos for various products, stockists and such. 4: Inventory, this can be from 5-100 bags depending on the time of year, shows and delivery to shops. 5: Shop list of stockists of my products. 6: Email list of prior customers and of prospects (and a bit of guidance on how to run this). I’ll a massive email blitz prior to transfer to let everyone know about the exciting news of a new owner. 7: A clone of the website for you to run (I use Shopify) with this comes a pile of professionally shot product photos, prior ads/ad campaigns in national and international magazines and the hardcopies of all those. 8: The URL/Facebook and other accounts associated with the business. 9: Training, negotiated as to location, time and details. 10: Reasonable followup calls/support (negotiated). Please email me at andy@andysleather.com for further details. Note, this sale is only the bag business and not my other strap/sling/accessory biz. Pricing: I’ll be offering a few different levels of support and pricing for this business. #1: Spendy, mainly because I’ve spent the past two decades and half building a client base, I’ll also have to pay taxes on all this which reduces my “take”. #2 Affordable, We can negotiate a fair price, you pay me with a genuine paycheck from your company with all taxes paid (Fed, State, Local, etc). #3 Really affordable, a pile of cash. I’ll help you load everything and get the URLs, Websites and such transferred over in your name on the same day as the sale/closing. We can negotiate training here or on your site. If you have previous leather working skills and a bit of web based computer experience, I can get you sorted quickly and efficiently with minimal downtime. Note: I’ll be asking for a signed non-disclosure agreement somewhere along the way and also ask for a letter of credit from a bank/lender to weed out the tire-kickers.

    I'm bumping this to the top. I have some new machines on the way and this now gathering dust, need a Clicker? Let's talk! (I could toss in the compressor too if needed) Andy

    Used, but it's nice. My old "spare" clicker. I'll get some pics up shortly. Inbox me for fast response: andy@andysleather.com $2500 . I could get this on a pallet if you wanted it shipped. Regards, Andy

    Scraps, mostly free!

    Production has been ramped up here at the shop with a ton of new accounts, a new lineup of products and some rebranding. Strap ends and such: Piles of them. Mostly bridle leather, could be chahin, any of the domestic makers or some hide that I am testing from someone else. Here's the deal. I'll fill a flat rate box with them, you pay shipping. It's that simple. Fine print: No cherry picking, don't ask "I need some horween in 1 foot squares only, for free" or " 10-12oz only, belt straps, 38", edged...free..." Oh, you laugh. This happens. Now, if you DO need some 1 foot or larger pieces, I have them. Same deal as above, you pay flat rate shipping, but toss me a few bucks for the leather. (I often trim full hides/sides and have larger 1-3 sq. foot sections.). Pop me an email direct: andy@andysleather.com put "scraps, leatherworker.net" in the subject line so I can get you sorted. Look for some sweeeeet Italian leather scraps coming up soon. 1-2 foot squares, a few colours, prob 12-18 a square foot. Thx! Andy

    Weaver Hand Crank Strap Cutter

    Jake, Email sent. Inbox me I need that. Andy
  12. Ben, I'm late in commenting, sorry. +1 on sponsors here or name brand/local vendors who can do follow up service in person or via the phone. Now, I hate to say this, as you have a budget for your machine, but "Buy once, Cry once". Get the best you can possible afford, even if you have to get a loan or use a CC. I made-do with shite machines forever when I started my biz's and waited until they made me some $ and bought nicer, newer machines. I'm an Adler whore now and just picked up a new 669. Worth the extra $ and I know I can call Adler and get advice quickly if things go awry. Hints: Service your machine yourself, get to know how and when to lube and adjust things. Keep ahead of the curve on this so your machine is not down for bushings/bearings prematurely. Inbox me if needed. Regards, Andy

  14. One of my lesser used cutters. $500 or best reasonable offer/swap/etc. I can drop this off to the UPS store for shipping and you can deal directly with them for the costs ( approx #36 weight).
