  1. Ash wood custom made Leather Stitching Clamp 39” tall to 36” . Used. The best way to use a stitching clamp holding it between your legs enables you to hold it in whatever position you need without the base type dictating your position. $150

  3. Vintage possibly Antique Saddle Fitters flocking Mallet. Used without any issues. Heavy due to the Iron Wood. Came out of a Tack repair shop nine years ago. $100.00 plus $30.00 shipping in the US International Buyers, message with Postal Code so I can get a price for shipping
  4. Custom Made Saddlers Leather Working Harness Bridle Making Stitching Clamps. Some leather dye stain on it. Used but just as strong as when they were made. Very well made in France of French Ash. 40 inches long in the picture, can adjust down 3 inches and up 3 inches. Shipping in the US would be $40.00 $180.00 plus $40.00. If the shipping ends up being less, I'll refund the difference. If its more, well I'll eat it. International Buyers, I would have to go to the post and see actual cost. Provide Postal Code so I can get the price. PayPal
  5. My leather work has taken on a different focus so these tools have not seen work in 6 years. Oh yeah I’ve picked up one or two for a hit or two since. Note the stickers on some. I’m leaving until September 22, don’t know the connection if any where I’m going. Hopefully no cell service!!! Number 36 punch is damaged and will throw it in as someone could machine it back to life. Meanwhile you can gawk, scrape up some dough and be ready to buy when I return. Heritage Skiver is also included I was going to list here in the description how I have not used it much at all, then I cut my finger cleaning it. Enough said. As I was comparing to others I noticed the adjustment screw with a brass colored base was not on it. Funny I bought this in 2006 and just noticed. I’ve used it a bit but never noticed a screw was gone. Simple replacement. I know the cost of each when new. But there may be a Leather Worker out there that would benefit from Super Quality tools at a good price. I will not be able to ship until September 25 as I’ll be out of Country. But you can secure the sale now if you act before tomorrow evening September 12th. Otherwise I’ll answer questions when I return $450.00 plus $15.00 shipping Venmo or PayPal Much obliged for looking
  6. Old post, new listing on a vintage ironwood smasher just posted https://leatherworker.net/forum/topic/106067-saddle-fitter-smasher-vintage/?tab=comments#comment-705882
  7. For Sale. Testing the waters, still haven’t found a fair price comparison. Saddle, fitters, smasher, vintage Ironwood tool very unique. Most of them these days are made out of other materials. Located in Western North Carolina. HEAVY : this isn’t some door knob light weight job several pictures available

  9. This is probably the best draw gauge your going to find anywhere. Excellent working condition, very, very good cosmetically. C.S. Osborne Latte Draw Gauge. I your not familiar with "Latte", it means you can twiste the handle to move the gauge location without a screw driver. Beautiful tool that people were drawn to when they came in my shop. RARE?? YES $150.00 pluse $20.00 shipping Pay Pal or being a business I can take credit cards.
  10. I'm not sure what you mean by fresh water alligator but that's Camian. I know because that is what my wallet is made of and I have an American Alligator tail piece that just came in.
  11. Thought I'd throw an update to all that have been great with their advice. Been in business since February and it has taken off more than I had expected. First month 80% sales off the sales then it has turned mainly custom orders including repairs to expensive furniture that require leather only (forget the upholstery stuff) Social media has worked well. With Instagram getting most of the business. I've been featured in a local magazine http://oakcityhustle.com/clark-aflague-the-leather-man/ Of course they had to call it the leather man...... There's a renaissance period going on with people looking toward artisans and not stuff from across the waters that set borders.
  12. All my work in my shop/store has been making the item either custom or to put on the shelf. So I've been approached with a person looking for a quote on Veg Tan pieces that would cost me precut from one of the leather sources at $200.00. The only thing I have to do is put 6 holes in each (40) and use there stamp one time on each one. I could just simply double the cost and add $60.00 labor But I want to be inline and fair. Any thoughts Thanks I've been doing leather for decades but a brick and mortar store only since Feb this year
  13. I've been pretty good about identifying different leathers but I'm not sure about this one. Any idea's, Hippo? Www.cimarronleatherraleigh.com
