  1. found this one, is 450$ but would be pretty easy to mod something similar DIY with angle grinder I would think https://www.woodysrocks.com/store/p142/1_Ton_Arbor_Press.html#/
  2. magnet is an interesting idea, if figured it would just break the magnet under the pressure but looks like its working of setting snaps for him
  3. do you think 150 pound press is enough for stamping leather with a 1.5x1.5 stamp and cutting slots and holes though leather? this K+M one is pretty tall and have an extra long feature as well https://kmshooting.com/product/arbor-press/
  4. the guy who makes the chuck recommends this press but its a 3 ton so pretty expensive Baileigh press brakes are very nice and an excellent bang for the buck with lots of room under the ram: https://www.baileigh.com/metalworking/presses/arbor-press Here's a demo video of the 1/2" chuck tool used in a Baileigh AP-3R 3-ton arbor press: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNE9S-ZjOW4 also for reference The 1/2" chuck with the magnetic back plate is 2.9" high
  5. I think I would be cutting strap ends, cutting slots and hole and stamping logos. don't have compressed air in the leather area but interesting solution do you have a photo I don't follow
  6. anyone know of an arbor press with higher clearance than normal? I dont really need something much stronger than 1/2-1ton as I'd like to use one of these magnetic chucks to hold different leather tools/stamps https://www.mathews-engineering.com/store/p15/Arbor_Press_Magnetic_Pin_Press_1%2F2"_Chuck_Tool.html it seems like the 2 ton presses might be tall enough to accept the chuck and the tool but they are more money/larger/heavier so wondering if you know of another option
  7. I was originally thinking of trying to convert my hiker press that can take 3/8" post accessories so I would have to find slot cutters/strap cutters to fit in 3/8 or have someone turn mine down then just making a wide bottoms plate that goes in 3/8 or 13/16 lower hole that would give much more leverage for stamping and cutting but not as nice as the drill press chuck for random jobs and not as much vertical space the craftool and same looking but more expensive tandypro is similar, has a nicer adjustable bed for when stamping and they make a few hole cutters I'm not sure what size their attachments are, it looks like some are 3/8 but others look really big like this adjustable tube punch https://tandyleather.com/products/press-die-for-hand-press-round-tube-punches
  8. yeah doesn't look to sturdy wonder if this Dremel brand one is a stronger https://www.amazon.com/Dremel-220-01-Station-MultiPro-Keyless/dp/B01MA36EDU/ref=sr_1_46?crid=O6A79K4QC49C&keywords=dealt%2Bdremil&qid=1643828992&sprefix=dealt%2Bdremil%2Caps%2C151&sr=8-46&th=1
  9. anyone tried these cheap burnishers from amazon? I watched a YouTube review on one and he said it worked great. the other cheap option I've seen in the harbor freight polishing machine then attaching a wood burnisher and a sanding wheel which comes out to about the same price https://amzn.to/3s4Prin
  10. Anyone used one of these hole punching presses? its got a drill press chuck on it so you can put different cutters in it that you already have. I think I would use it for strap end cutting, oblong slots and pressing logos in. I was planning to get a one ton arbor press but found this in the search which seems a little more useful with the chuck https://amzn.to/3IMwIi0 https://amzn.to/32RggxW
  11. slightly different from he wood ones, maybe since its narrower it would get into the thin stuff better https://www.ivan.tw/products/craftplus-strip-ease?pr_prod_strat=copurchase&pr_rec_pid=6207456116931&pr_ref_pid=5017261637769&pr_seq=uniform
  12. found this thread for cutting thin leather http://imgur.com/a/yswIR
  13. these end cutters ate 5/16 they said, just under 3/8" so would probably work https://strapwarehouse.com/handyman-accessories-end-punches/
  14. do these exposed blade strap cutters work better than the wood ones that go through the two slots? I'm having a hard time getting my thinner leathers through the wood one as you cant push them through as easy as something like a stiff veg tan https://www.amazon.com/OwnMy-Leather-Cutting-Cutter-Aluminium/dp/B0868B1N9S/ref=psdc_12897141_t3_B076B1WF9H
  15. do you know of any strap end cutters with a V or English point that has a handle that is 3/8" round. I'd like to mount it in my grommet press to cut straps quicker with a jig instead of hammering this looks like it could possibly be 3/8" waiting on seller to let me know https://www.ebay.com/itm/324754875911 also if you know of any kind of base type of thing that the has 3/8 shaft that I could use in the bottom part of the press like this https://www.weaverleathersupply.com/catalog/item-detail/65-6585/brass-anvil/pr_9197 let me know, I'll probably make something DIY though
