  1. Hi. So I nicked my blade when I was removing the burrs with my stick for the skiving machine. Do I need to buy another blade? I’ve tried sharpening theee times but the gauge is still there.
  2. Ok yes it’s in there. How do I know if it’s adjusted correctly?
  3. By on do you mean on like not turned off..or installed on the machine? Im
  4. Ok thank you I will check that out! I assume I do. I haven’t taken anything off other than the front shield that plate that covers the blade some.
  5. Hello! Do they sell vacuum systems for skiving machines that you can add…or should I try making one with a shop vac or something lol? My leather (soft chrome tanned…Remy)is coming back up on my stone roller. I just bought a steel one yesterday and I did try aussie’s suggestion of putting talcum powder on a piece of leather and running it through. I want a permanent fix though because this is utterly annoying lol! also, how can I get my roller and bell blade on separate motors diy? thanks!!
  6. Ok thank you! Thanks for that info! I will check it out!
  7. Hi. I purchased these pricking irons when I first started leather working. I have used them no more than 10 times. They are in like new condition. I just don’t use them. I was doing a project where I wanted my hand stitching to look straight like my machine stitch. I believe the reverse are used for pricking the underside of thick leather also. The set is a 2 tooth and 8 tooth. I also have another wuta reverse 8 tooth I will include. Wuta sent me a replacement 8 tooth because the first one wasn’t sharp enough to my liking. I’m sure it could be honed or something or work just fine for someone else. $80 free shipping for the 2 tooth and two 8 tooth pricking irons. I would send a business PayPal invoice for payment.
  8. Ok those are good things for me to try. I have a sewing room outside (shares a door with a bigger workshop/tool shed) and it’s an insulated room with two windows...about 500 sqft. Maybe I can rearrange things to have my glue station in front of the window and open it when glueing..maybe a table can to blow out may help. I will look for a mask for the fumes as well. The water based glue is not good at all for glueing reinforcement to the base. Thanks for your suggestions and I will give them a try. Yes you are more than likely right. I will just have to work with what’s available here then.
  9. Ok yes I didn’t think about that. Well what would you guys suggest as next best? Right now I use Renia aquilim for holding parts together on the body of my bags..and weld wood contact cement for flying the base..it’s so stinky and I’m trying to replace it because I want to breathe freely while gluing and not getting high!
  10. Thank you. I did come across their website and emailed but never got a response. I will try again and update of I hear back from someone.
  11. Hi! I’ve been hunting for this Korean glue that I see used overseas. It isn’t sold online. Are there any Korean leather workers on here that can help me out? Or anyone else that knows the product! its called star bond 950(yellow one) and star bond b5(beige one). it looks so easy to spread from what I’ve sent and the consistency is very nice looking.
  12. Yes but I haven’t sewed the lining in yet. See..I have to have enough clearance from the outer foot when I sew the top of the bag for the lining..so if I stitch the holder onto the outside of the bag..I won’t be able to move the holder out the way of the outer foot when I come around to that part.
