  1. For sale: Tandy Leather 8" blade leather splitter/skiver. Adjustable arm, metal twisted handle. Blade recently professionally sharpened. I purchased this new years ago and it has always been in the house. It has sat more than been used, so only needed sharpening this one time. It has years of use left in it. Razor sharp blade that can split leather down to almost paper thin if you slip off the locking mechanism. $265. plus actual shipping from SW PA or pick up for free. I do accept Paypal. Will be packed carefully.
  2. I recently got my hands on an old cast iron leather splitter that was used by a smaller European shoemaking company. It weighs a ton (feels about 200 pounds actually - three men had to carry it). There are no markings, but it's quite possibly over 100 years old. It seems to be hand operated only (no sight of a belt attachment). It is quite dirty, but I'm sure that can be cleaned off well enough. It looks like all the parts are there and working, but I'm not really sure yet. At the moment I am trying to figure out what goes where, how to adjust it, etc. The blade is still razor sharp (slightly concave grind) and HUGE (14" long edge, 1/2" thick, weighs 5 pounds). There is some surface dirt on it, but no major rust whatsoever. There are two rollers (one flat/polished, the other has teeth), and the blade is positioned below between them vertically. I would like to restore it as well as I can, but in order to do so, access to information on a similar machine would be needed for a reference. I'm not really sure I need the machine (as a leather hobbyist, it feels that would be like using a bulldozer in a flower pot), but I do enjoy challenges. Does anybody know anything about this type of a machine? Any info (mechanics, history, value) would be appreciated.

  4. I have a NEW old Stock No. 86 for sale. It has never been mounted or used. It came from a Hardware store that closed in the 60`s and sat on the shelf in the building untill I bought it.

  5. I have a new old stock Osbourne splitter for sale. I bought it thinking I would be using it more and havent. It is brand new, never been mounted, never seen leather and comes in the original box with original blade which is VERY sharp. It sat in a hardware that was closed in the 60s along with their other stock. This is literally brand new. Asking 500$ and would consider some trading with it. Thanks for looking Romey
  6. I've had it for a year now and have only used it 3 or 4 times. It's a Osborne clone I believe. I just don't have the strength to pull the leather through it! I may put it up on Ebay but I thought I'd let my friends here have a chance at it first. If anyone is interested, I am asking $275.00 plus actual shipping. Just send me a message at my Email: blackriverlaser@gmail.com Thank you! Joyce~ It has a wooden handle instead of the cast iron one like in the picture.
  7. I have a used bench mountable splitter from Tandy.. it's called the "High-Tech". Pictures upon request. But it's like this one (but at a fraction of the price): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tandy-Leather-Craftool-High-Tech-Leather-Splitter-New-3790-00-/370592087823?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5649027f0f Askin $50 plus shipping.

  8. Selling my absolutely perfect #86 splitter by Osborne. Still have the original box and paperwork as well. Razor sharp and a great item for any craftsman. I won't be monitoring this forum, too busy. If you're interested you can email me at: captusa1948@gmail.com OR call me at 406.370.7080 (that's Montana) I'm asking $450.00 and you pay shipping. Her's a photo of it case your interested. Thanks, Alan
  9. For those of you who own a pull-through splitter do you prefer a micro-bevel on the blade's cutting edge? I just purchased the small Tandy/Craftool splitter and noticed it comes with a very slight/small micro-bevel on the angled side of the blade. Straight out of the box the blade was only okay. After a little polishing of the blade's flat edge using 600 grit wet-dry paper laid on flat glass along with a little stropping it was much better. Most leather samples pulled through with just a little effort on my part. That said . . . would I get a sharper edge and better cut if I removed the blade's top side micro-bevel? As for sharpening the flat side, isn't a piece of plate glass a flat enough surface for the wet-dry paper sharpening/polishing? I've read some posts suggesting the use of a granite "machinist grade" precision surface stone. Is that over-kill? Actually, I'm please with my little splitter. It get's the job done without breaking the bank! Just trying to improve it's performance. Thanks for your time, Lippy
  10. I just bought a refurbished American crank type splitter and it will be here this week. I have never used a splitter before, so I know that I have a learning curve. I have two very basic questions. 1) does the leather insert with the grain up or down? 2) I have a couple hundred of 3 sizes of veg tan folding knife blanks that are too thick and need to split. These blanks are about 16 years old, but are in good shape. The leather is very dry and stiff. Should I split then dry or should I try to condition them first. I have clicked a couple of them down one size and they cut clean on my Lucris clicker press. I have recently made a few knife sheathes with the thinner blanks and they worked fine. moistened the stitch line a little before stitching. -- Tex -- Here is a picture of one of the blanks.
  11. I am looking to buy a new splitter in the next couple months and wondered if anyone of you out there has experience with the Cobra or Artisan 20" powered splitters. I have heard some say they both have issues with sharpening and replacing the blade to get it adjusted properly. Any opinions? thanks,Tom

    Splitter In The Uk

    Has anyone got a leather splitter up for grabs in the UK? Preferably not crafttool unless you only want peanuts for it. Manual over machine and 6 inch or so is fine. Nige
  13. It's here and it's a beauty. This is my first splitter and I am learning as I go, I'll try to answer questions as best I can. Happy Holidays to all, and a big High-Five to David and Steve at Leather Machine Co. I have delivery and setup photos along with a video posted to our website. Please try to ignor my obsessive tendency in the video. ;-) http://www.swflholst...d-setup-photos/
  14. Hi, all. I have a Hansen string cutter and also a rounder. They are the original style Frank made, and have a base with drilled holes which you then bolt down onto...whatever...I bolted them onto a board and then would clamp the whole unit to a work table. (I see that the new ones have a built-in clamp). It also has the original style of locknuts (not the wingnuts). For me personally, I think the old style is much superior because you can REALLY tighten it down rather than just finger-tighten, but that's just my preference. It was used very gently, on goathide only, for 2 years and then has been carefully stored ever since. It has a lovely patina. (I think!) As you all probably know you can get a new splitter off the Hansen website for $445 including shipping, and the rounder for $235 including shipping, so that's $680 for both. I'll sell my set for $440 including shipping if you live in CA, NV, OR or AZ, and $450 if you live elsewhere. Thanks for your interest. The best way to reach my is by direct email which is westernartist@gmail.com and my name is Jeanne Miller.
  15. Does anyone recognize this splitter? Can anyone tell e who made it? Do they make them still? Looks like it may be a one-off made in a machine shop, but made darn well! If I cannot find a maker nor any patent or licensing info on it, I may start having them reproduced. I have a great machinist here in town who can fabricate all the parts and will grind the blades, and one of the best blade makers/swordsmiths in the country is right here in town too(K.C. Lund) and he can do the heat treat on the 01 steel blades. We can even offer pattern welded (Damascus) blades if anyone wants to pay a ridiculous amount for one Let me know if y'all are interested, so I can look into whether or not it will be worthwhile to have these cranked out.
