  1. I put the splitter on a back burner because I took it to a friends house to have it painted. I just got it back and still need a few photos of the bottom roller assembly to retrofit one on my machine. I need the roller diameter and any and all information about the assembly. I want to put this back together and working. LOL Thanks to all, Fred
  2. Trox and Bruce, Thanks for the replies! I would really like to see a photo of the bottom roller, if possible. The other question is this. What does the lever on the top do? I did not get one with my machine , and don't know if I need to make one, Dimensions would be nice to have also. Thanks for the help. Regards, Fred
  3. Hello, I won a Chase pattern LS a while ago on ebay and started cleaning it up. I had to put it on a backburner but would like to finish it and be able to use it. I made a new blade for it that is not heat treated yet. I used O1. I need photos or information about the bottom roller. My machine seems to be an older model that did not have a bottom roller. I would like to retrofit the roller. Is this roller fixed in place or is it adjustable for height? gringobill in Major Bummer-http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=36437&hl=+chase%20+pattern%20+leather%20+splitter#entry225399 poste a photo that shows what looks like a handle that extends out the back. There is also a small lever on the top that seems to be long enough to engage/affect the top roller. I would appreciate all advice and information that you can give me. My splitter is at a friends house right now, because he is going to paint it for me. Thanks for the help. Fred
  4. I spent 20 minutes yesterday speaking with Bruce Johnson about the splitter. I wanted to thank him here for his help and patience! I now have an idea of what I have and how it works. I have cleaned it in my electrolysis tank and will start painting it soon. I think that I am going to make a blade for it out of O1. Thanks again to Bruce for his help. Regards, Fred
  5. Hello, I bought a Chase pattern leather splitter on ebay. that has not arrived yet.I will have to strip it down and rebuild it, when it finally gets in my hands. I was hoping that someone has instructions on how to operate and set it up. Thanks for the help. Fred
  6. I ran across this site following a sharpening discussion -http://www.chefknivestogo.com/handamerican.html I am going to try some of their products as soon as I can order. Regards, Fred
  7. Hello, What is the USA equivelent of Gold Quality Laederedt conditioner that Brissa sells? I am using the information from a tutorial on making a stacked leather handle for a knife to make a handle for my new maul. The writer said that the nicest finish came with Laederfedt or a second choice Pecards dressing. I have Aussie, snow proof and mink oil at home. All suggestions happily accepted. Thanks, Fred
  8. While I am delighted in hearing of your gift. From another site that I frequent--THIS THREAD IS NO GOOD WITHOUT PHOTOS. Show us the tools and what you make with them!!! Make him proud. Best of luck. Fred
