I have two questions that I hope the forum can help with.
First, I bought the American leather splitter on Ebay and the seller listed it as working - it isn't. The mechanism at the top that creates downward tension on roller that feeds leather and should be adjustable by hand, is partially broken and partially missing. I've found a thread here that says its a comon problem. Is there a place to get replacement or a manual?
I've asked the seller for a solution and they are not being helpful. I've requested a refund, as this is just not good business. I hate to do this to them, I'm sure they are just trying to make extra money, but I have an unusable piece of machinery.
I can probably get a local machinist to make something for me, but I'm wondering what a fair value would be for the machine as is? I'd like to be a nice guy (girl actually). Really appreciate any input!!
