I have had Bob Park use my tools and does like the effect it can get. Go to my website and look at the short video that I have there demostrating the use of my tool. www.leathertools4u.com. as for the wax, I use paraffin wax. I also use sand paper to get my edge smooth.

  6. Looking for Christmas prestent for a leather worker? Look no futher. This is a set of burnishers that i have developed for a dremel type of rotary tool that can handle a 1/8" shaft.There are 4 burnishers and a stand that makes up this set. I use any hardwood i can find for the stands . I am using Alder for the time being. The buenishers are made out of ccbolo. considered one of the most beautiful woods in the world. It is loved by leatherworkers because of the natural oils in the wood. I made these tools because I know how much trouble it is to burnish the edge of a leather project. These burnishers can make the job easy and fun to do. The burnishers are made to doa certain job and here is a description of what they can do. 1) Single groove burnisher that can do leather from 3 oz to 11 oz. 2) Double groove burnisher that can do leather from 2 0z to 6 oz 3) Flat faced burnisher for doing wide areas like the welt on gunrigs or skirts on saddles 4) Cone shaped burnisher that is great for getting into tight spaces and filegree work 5) Stand made to hold all of the burnishers. I have these sets in some stores here in the USA and retail for $64.99 I can put 4 letters on the stand if you want. You need to contact me for the letters. They are branded into the leather with mini branding irons that I have If you want a set please contact me at leatherman1457@aol.com

  10. I am witing to request an ad be removed from your site fo " tools for sale." I had been selling to members at a much discounted price a set of burnishers and am about to embark on selling to wholesale to stores only. I have made a deal with the stores That if I do sell them to the public it can only be retail which is only fair to them. I need to have to ad removed becuase even today I am still getting request for the tools and I am afraid that the stores will see this ad and not order any from me . so if you could please remove the ad place by leatherman1457 for a "7 Pc Cocobolo burnishing set for 30.00 it would be a great help to me. I will place a new ad for the tools redirecting them to my website where I have them at retail price. thank you Gary Lyon Name: Gary Lyon UserName: leatherman1457 IP Address: Email Address: leatherman1457@aol.com
