  1. The machine has been sold.
  2. My husband said he'd help me get it to the ups store in Stevens Point, if that is at all helpful.
  3. I think you're gonna be surprised to find out what it would cost to ship...
  4. That would be fine however, I think that FedEx would be a better bet. They seem to take better care of stuff in transit, especially if it's insured for a lot of money, or if it could break their toes if they happen to get in the way. I also think they have trucks with hydraulic lifts, which is what it will take to get this on a truck. The machine head alone weighs approx. 80 lbs., and the stand it is on weighs well at least twice that. Plus FedEx always requires a signature, meaning they won't just leave it on your front porch during a monsoon, and drive away.
  5. Tonya, you would have to arrange to pick it up. It weighs a LOT, and I can't wrangle it down to the local UPS store
  6. Hi Tonya. I don't have any pics of it, but if you go here: http://www.leathermachineco.com/catalog.php?item=2 you can see a photo of the exact same thing. Mine is just a little dustier at the moment!
  7. Hi. Yes, it's still available.
  8. Sylvia! Is this the same Sylvia from JamPlay???
  9. Forgot to mention, it comes with all the goodies a new one comes with, plus the attachable work table thingy - an $85.00 value.
  10. Hi all. It's been quite some time since I've checked in here, and this place has really changed since my last visit! I'm down on my luck with my husband being unemployed for the last 10 months, and no unemployment benefits at all. We are out of funds in the bank, and the bills never stop coming, and I am forced to start selling my own stuff just to make the bills, as my job just doesn't pay me enough. I have a Cobra Class 3 Leather Machine which was used only a few times since I bought it new. I never got comfortable with it, and have continued to sew by hand, so it is in like new condition (just a bit dusty). I am asking $1500.00 for it, you pick up. I live in central Wisconsin. Anyone interested?
  11. Sorry to hear of your loss. Here's a little something to give you hope that one day you will see Chloe again. Hilary Rainbow Bridge There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills, valleys with lush green grass When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this special place There is always food and water and warm spring weather The old and frail are young again Those who are maimed are made whole again They play all day with each other There is only one thing missing They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth So each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up ! The nose twitches ! The ears are up ! The eyes are staring ! And this one suddenly runs from the group ! You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her into your arms and embrace your face is kissed again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated Author Unknown
  12. Your collars and leads are beautifully done. There's only one thing that I would change... Those cool looking spikes could hurt the dog that wears that collar. I would switch from those pointed spikes to a flatter diamond or spots. Dogs try to scratch around or under their collars, and getting a sharp spike in the foot would not make for a happy dog. Other than that small detail, your work is really nice. Thanks for sharing.
  13. Central Wisconsin here! Welcome!
  14. Not bad work for being a dead cow molester and all. Thanks for sharing!
  15. It would be nice if your pics were larger so that we could see all of your beautiful carving and tooling.
