  1. Thank you, haven't been on here for a while, so a bit late with the reply.
  2. G'day Leatherstrap, Just wondering if you are still using the pilot, I have just found one and looking for a catalogue on it. Regards Alan
  3. Thank you folks, photos are great but I want to own one........PLEASE....
  4. I collect BUSMC machines, there are some people that still use these old A1's but they are pretty scarce on the ground.....over 100 years old.... Finding parts is hard and making new parts expensive. I would just love to find one and get it going and use it......there is a Master Saddler in England that still uses his for all his harness making. They don't sell for a lot of money. I'll just keep looking.
  5. Thank you all for your help, yes I use an "Apple" you would think they would be comparable by now. The Pearson A 1 are pretty scarce on the ground and if you do find one I reckon the spares would be rarer, thank you Northmount for the Pic.
  6. G'day, Does anybody know of a Pearson A1 sewing machine that is for sale? 09343187-16C2-44D4-8D15-6B2C35F35D11.heic
  7. G'day John. Did you manage to find anyone to show you how to thread the machine? I have been looking for one of those (Pearson A1 ) for a couple of years now, do you happen to know of another one could you let me know please Regards Alan. Australia.
  8. Crikey!!, any chance of finding out where you had these made???? as luck would have it I just managed to buy an ESTO rough rounder ($350.00) 4 days ago.....a spare blade would e good.
  9. Esto machines were made in a suburb of Sydney by a Migrant from Estonia, he migrated to Australia just after the Second World War......so being from Estonia....hence the name of his machines ESTO.

    Sorry I haven't been back to Leatherworker for some time, so a BIG thank you for your comments....Spyros, CraigL, Hopup, & TerryNoles. My saying these days is "you can do anything if you set your mind to it" ......although when I first saw the "clamp" I thought ....I can make that in a couple of days!!......WRONG ,,it does take a bit longer especially the first one. I seem to put most of my time in these days with leather tool collecting & not as much woodworking & leather working as I used to, but that's retirement....you have the time to chop and change. Alan
  11. Very Impressive apron, what are the dimensions of the apron, if you don't mind?
  12. Thank you all for the information, MUCH APPRECIATED. Alan.

    Thank you Alden, its a while since I looked at my leatherworker site. I seemed to have mislaid my plans for this Stitching clamp, I will have to look a bit harder as I might just make a couple more. There is a real lot of work in making one, the first time I looked at it I thought...... "should be able to make that in a couple of days!".... WRONG!!!..... the making of the stainless steel locking device was a bit tricky as it has to be "just right" to work. But it was good fun. Alan
  14. Does anybody know where I can find spares (bobbins, needles etc) for a Luberto sewing machine?
  15. Like to chat with UKRAY as I have the same machines

      Sorry Alan, I dropped the ball there. Chat away! 

  16. Does anybody have an address for the Doldokki leather tool site in Japan

  18. PERFECT PACKAGING ! Have you ever purchased a leather tool on eBay and thought "I hope they pack it well"....... then wait & hope it will arrive in good condition. I did that just recently with a plough gauge knife, to my very pleasant surprise it arrived as seen below in the Pics. This is a lesson in how to package products perfectly. What a lot of effort this person has gone to...even laminating & gluing the polystyrene before cutting out the section so the knife was fully protected, to top it off there was sponge rubber packed around the outside.
  19. G'day all, This is another one for the collection..... a "Buck & Hickman" made in England but I am told they went out of production some years ago. Does anybody have any information on this Plough Gauge please?
