  1. I'm from San Sebastián (Basque country, not Tenerife). Spain
  2. Do not ship to Europe. A pity...
  3. Good site! Thank you very much!
  4. Wow, what a great explanation! It's all very clear to me. Thank you very much Best regards
  5. Thank you very much! You have made me rethink my purchase. Best regards
  6. Thank you very much The problem is that in Europe it is very difficult to find bench grinder with variable speed. Bringing it from the USA is very expensive because of shipping and taxes. I have asked to buy one with fixed speed and convert it to variable speed and the thing is quite complicated and the price goes up a lot. Unfortunately I will have to make do with what I can. Best regards
  7. Hello I will probably buy this bench grinder as it is the only one with variable speed I can find in Europe (shipping + fees from USA are very expensive) https://www.sealey.co.uk/product/5637184962/o200mm-variable-speed-bench-grinder but I can't find any drum grinder with the shaft diameter. Does anyone know of any? If it was in Europe, the better, but if not there is not much of a problem. Thank you very much for your help.
  8. Thank you! I still have these doubts: Drum with or without slot? If I have not misunderstood if I give more speed to the one with groove it acts as one without groove, is it so? How many RPM for the leather and for the rubber sole? Thank you! Best regards
  9. Thank you! You have done a great job! But I still have the same doubts. Best regards
  10. Hello I need a machine to polish and sand leather. I have seen that the usual is to buy a bench grinder, a sanding drum and a polisher. The problem arises because I need the sander also for sanding rubber soles. I have read some people that having a bench grinder over 3000 RPM is bad for the rubber soles. So I have 3 options and I don't know which one to choose. 1 - Bench grinder with variable speed. https://www.rapidonline.com/sealey-bg150wvs-bench-grinder-150mm-variable-speed-94-3199 2 - Bench grinder of about 2000 RPM (will it go well for leather and rubber sole?). 3 - Bench grinder of approximately 3000 RPM (will it go well for leather and rubber sole?). https://www.rapidonline.com/draper-29620-230v-150mm-heavy-duty-bench-grinder-91-5507 I also have a question regarding the sander. 1 - Sanding drum with groove. I can put any sander I want on it but I don't know if the slot will leave any kind of imprint on the leather or rubber sole. https://www.justwood.com/buy/75mm-sleeveless-drum-sander_34.htm 2 - The regular sander drum (there are less sandpaper grits to choose from). I would really appreciate it if any of you could help me with this. Thank you very much Best regards
  11. Thank you all very much. I have to study everything you have told me as I am very new to machines. Thank you!
  12. I don't quite understand. One of the seams would still be "simple", no? Thanks
  13. Thanks, but my doubt is how to do it on the sleeves (to "close" the sleeve). Best regards
  14. Hello As I say in another post (I ask about machines), I want to start making leather jackets but I have a problem. I don't know how to make a flat felled seam on the sleeves (sewing machine, not handmade). I'm going crazy searching and I can't find anything about it. Can someone help me? Thanks!
