    Campbell Bosworth Stitcher for sale

    Location is Cottage Grove, OR
  5. Machine was purchased from Campbell-Bosworth in Yoakum, Tx, completely refurbished in 2002. Never a lease machine. Comes with bobbin winder, stitch guide arm, additional box stitching arch cover, manuals and parts catalogs. Spare bobbins, needles, awls and tools included. Has clutch motor and various speed reducers. Lays down perfect stitches top and bottom with no foot tracks. Uses linen as well as or better than bonded nylon or polyester. There is no machine that can match the old Campbell for heavy leather stitching. Machine was well maintained and is in excellent condition. One of the last machine items to be offered after closing out gunleather business in 2016. This is the machine you see Conway use to stitch a penny to a ¾” layer of leather in Campbell’s old video demo. Crating and shipping at cost. Machine cost $5800 in 2002. Will sell for $4500. If you’re outside USA I just can’t handle the shipping logistics, sorry.

    Automatic Rivet Press for sale

    Automatic Rivet Press for sale

    Liquidating leather shop machinery. Here is an automatic feed foot press rivet machine. Although the name plate is missing, it looks to be a Tubular Rivet and Stud Company machine vintage about 1947 or so. Currently set up for 5/16" tubular rivets it automatically feeds the rivet, punches the hole and sets the rivet with either a splash anvil or cap - and does it flawlessly as did most machines of that era. Hopper holds easily 1000 rivets which it sorts, orients and feeds automatically. I have owned and operated this machine for over a decade in a gunleather shop and it has never needed anything but more rivets. Local pickup preferred - weighs about 350# More photos here: press&sort=rel Will also be listing the smaller Heritage press in the background soon. It's set up for belt loop staples but I still have the small auto-feed rivet mechanism. PM for more info.

    USMC (Camoga) splitter for sale

    Liquidating gunleather shop equipment and tools. Universal Shoe Machinery Corporation leather tool band knife leather splitter made by Camoga in Italy. Model No. C400S. Sixteen inch width capacity. Band knife splitters can thin heavy skirting-type veg-tanned leather from 12-13 oz down to about 3 oz. Motor feeds the leather. Splits come out with excellent flesh-side finish. Instead of buying the more expensive skived sides, just buy skirting and thin it to the desired thickness for your project. This machine was fed clicker-cut holster patterns for a uniform 7-8oz production item. Machine includes knife sharpening feature. Operates on 220 v 3-phase. Older machine but in good production working condition. I can provide a phase converter with purchase if you only have single-phase electricity for extra $$. Weighs 915# so local pickup in Cottage Grove, OR is best but may be able to ship for cost. Asking $1100

    Ideal Model C Clicker

    Ideal Model C Clicker

    Have an Ideal Model C mechanical (not hydraulic) press for sale. I used it extensively in a gunleather shop but now is surplus. Works very well with 8 oz and under but can cut heavier leather with graduated strokes. Monster machine. I'd guess about 3K pounds so shipping would be prohibitively expensive but not impossible. Item is located in Cottage Grove, Oregon just south of Eugene. I can help load this beast without a forklift - that's how I got it in my old shop and from there to it's current location. Partially disassembles. Can't beat the price - $700. If you're in Oregon we can work to get this to you without a shipper - my trailer or yours. I'll try to get some pictures posted soon. Google it for reviews. Good stout machine like they built back in the '40's. 541-942-5254 Mike

    Chase Pattern Splitter For Sale

    This is a 10-inch Chase patter splitter that will thin leather straps from 15oz down to 2oz or less with very little effort. No markings but I believe it was made by CS Osborne after they acquired the original Chase patent of 1859. I used it daily in my shop until I acquired an electric splitter. This hard to find leather tool works much better than the modern stuff. If you're making belts or straps, you can't afford to do without this classic tool. $375 with spare blade included. Located in Cottage Grove, OR. Call 541-942-5254 and ask for Mike
