  1. Hello All, I recently picked up a UMC Clicker press that requires USMC SPEC. 150A OIL. I've not been successful with finding a civilian equivalent oil to refill the machine with. If anyone can please point me in the right direction as to what's the replacement or civilian equivalent it would be much appreciated. Stangman645

    Clicker Press FOR SALE

    I am in southern California (Anaheim) selling 2 used clicker press in good condition. looking to get $1,500 for each or $2,500 for the pair. DM for all inquires on the machine. Below is a video of a identical machine running. I can provide pictures and anything else needed
  3. Hi everyone! I'm currently looking into getting custom cutting dies for leather in order to improve my efficiency in creating mass produced items. I initially looked at the Weaver Master Tool Mighty Wonder Hand Operated clicker, but with all the other machines that I'm having to purchase right now (ex: strap cutting machine and strap folding machine) I'm trying to keep my expenses low to stay within my budget. Something I'm considering is purchasing an hydraulic press and clicker press plates to cut down my cost. The Weaver 12 ton press is $285, but I found a few at harbor freight for $119 (possibly less with a coupon if I can find one). Now I always see mixed reviews about Harbor Freight tools ("you get what you pay for", "horrible", or "great product") so I'm looking for feedback from anyone who may have used the Harbor Freight press. The major difference I see in the presses is that the Weaver press (can be used on your work bench) doesn't take up as much space as the Harbor Freight (taller). Any feedback would be great! Also have any of you used the Weaver belt end dies or other cutting dies with a hydrolic press? Anything that I should be aware of or consider when getting custom dies made? Do the presses damage the dies at all? How long do the dies usually last?

    Tandy's New Clicker Press

    Has anybody seen Tandy's new clicker press? When I first heard it was coming and going for around $950 with business pricing, I was really excited. But after going out to see it last week, I'm really disappointed. I figured they just put their name on something that was already being made and we'd end up with one in the same style as the Weaver Mighty Wonder or Cowboy's manual press. But that's not what they did at all. As best I can tell, they must be having this thing made just for them. I was so disheartened I didn't even bother to take a picture, but they're rolling out into stores nationwide, so it should be on the website shortly. If you haven't seen it yet... it looks kind of like the Tippman and the Weaver merged into one. It looks like it's about the same size as the small Tippman and, like the Tippman, it has a fixed and relatively short opening height, but it's not pneumatic. It's got a lever like the Weaver, but it lacks the Weaver's ability to swing side to side (it's best feature in my opinion). If that's not bad enough, it actually has walls on either side (the whole thing looks like it's about 8 inches wide), which seriously limits what you could ever use it for. I'm shocked Tandy chose this route actually. If there's one thing I've learned hanging out in these forums, it's how thrifty and resourceful this crowd is. I don't think I could do anymore with this press than I could with my Harbor Freight Arbor Press, so why would I pay $900 more for it?
  5. Lowering price to $3500 OBO. He really wants to move these machines! I'm helping a friend of a friend by posting these. He is a retired leather worker and is trying to sell his remaining equipment, 2 very large clicker presses. I saw both in operation. His main stipulation is that the buyer needs to take both units. The Schwabe is I believe a 25 ton hydraulic clicker press. The Fales is about the same size but is mechanical. He is willing to negotiate on price and may be able to help arrange shipping (buyer would pay shipping costs.) If you are a serious buyer I can put you in direct contact with him. Thanks for looking!
  6. Hello! I'm new to the forum so pardon if I'm doing this wrong. I make handbags and I'm looking to get a clicker press. Some of my patterns can be as large as 23" x 17" and I use about 2oz-8oz leather. Planning to use it for shorter straps too. The lady at CRJ Tec said a 27 ton hydraulic machine is what I'd need? This is way more than what I planned to spend and I'd really like to get a used Herman Schwabe because why add more to landfills if I can find one that's working well. My studio is in a large industrial building with a loading dock and a freight elevator but one are of the hallway was rebuilt with plywood instead of concrete....a lot of delivery places say I need a forklift to move it in as they are 3000lbs. So, 2 I need this tonnage for what I'm doing? And who has experience moving hydraulic presses can I do it with an electric palette jack? Thanks!!!!
  7. Weaver 4-ton clicker press for sale. 4 years old, but the parts that make it go up and down are maybe 1.5 years old. Will post photos in the morning. These are $1450 new. Asking 1,000 plus shipping. Shows some use, but it works as good as the day I bought it. Local pickup available in Nashville, TN.

    Fipi Clicker Press for Sale Model AF25L

    Hey guys, I have a great Clicker Press. Apparently this is a great Model. It functions great! Im asking $4200 Located West of Seattle, WA in Silverdale 98383. Year 1998 3 Phase 220v I believe it is either a 20 or 25 Ton press. Reasonable offers will be taken! A video of this press working can be seen here: This video was taken June 21, 2018. This unit is being sold as-is. I have not thoroughly checked or inspected the unit. The video shows the good working condition. I am not a press repair guy and don’t know all the ins and outs but this machine operates very well. I feel confident you will be getting a good product. I will place on sturdy pallet and wrap press for shipping. You will be responsible for pickup or freight. I do not pay freight or shipping. A shorter box truck with a lift gate and pallet jack are mandatory. Not a big deal but I need to include this. This machine is 2000# and my fork lift can only lift it about 4 inches off the ground, good enough to get it on a lift gate.

    IN search of clicker press services

    Looking for someone local (relatively) that has a ~15+ ton clicker press that can cut out some designs for me. I already have a die made, but need someone to do the cutting. My wife and I have designed a plastic jewelry display hanger/organizer we are trying to produce and sell. Looking for an individual to provide cut products in batches as orders are received. Please message me if you are interested. Thanks in advance!

  14. I bought this from Weaver a month ago and unfortunately it isn't what I need to do the job. It has maybe 40 clicks total on it. Literally got it out of the box, set it up, clicked and realized it isn't going to do it - what I'm cutting is way too narrow and the die won't eject the slugs. So, my loss is your gain. It's all back in the box and ready to ship. You basically get a like new clicker with all the original stuff that came with it. I did mount a back stop on the clicking pad to align my work, so there are 4 very small holes (less than 1/8" diameter each). How does $900 plus actual shipping costs sound? Or you can pick it up in Toledo, Ohio. Call me or send me a message - Jesse (419) nine 57-402one I have several pictures but there isn't much to show - its a like new clicker press. If you want to see them just ask and I'll happily send.

    Tippmann 1500 Die Cutting Press

    I am selling a Tippmann 1500 Die Cutting Press. It comes with the air accumulator which cuts your cycle time in half. I have built a custom table with castors for easy mobility. I will upload photos Monday when I get into the shop. It is in perfect running condition. I am asking for $2,500 plus shipping. Shipping can be organized through pretty easily. Attached is an image of the shipping setup (dimensions, weight, class, etc.) I would be shipping from Tacoma, Washington (98409) - local pickup also available.
  16. Cowboy has a dealer in Australia and we carry a wide range of machines in stock. If we do not have it then we can bring it in for you. Contact Darren Brosowski - ABLE Sewing - on 0415 353 748. We also ship to NZ so email me on
  17. I have an old 110V electric belt press that I purchased from landis International in Canada. I repainted it, oiled it and placed the decals on it. Works great and very powerful. This machine will punch belt or strap holes and the tip in one punch. Comes with old die that needs to be replaced or repaired. 3-4 of the belt punch holes are missing. Very strong and rare model that I believe was made by a company called Conseco. Price is $1900 Please message me if seriously interested. You must pickup at my shop in zip code 90731 located in Los Angeles, Ca area.
  18. I am cleaning out my toolchest and first up is the Art Stamp and clicker die drawers! Virtually NEW condition throughout, some of these were never even used! Please see more images of everything here (too many pieces to show all images)

    Clicker Press Services

    I have a 15T Swing Arm Clicker press that I am looking to put to good use. If you have a project that needs clicking let me know, I would be happy to click for you. I can click leather, rubber, and fabric. I am located in Dayton, Ohio
  20. Hey guys, I don't post much on here but and grateful for all of the information I've gotten as a lurker! Anyway, I am selling our Weaver Leather "Mighty Wonder" 4-Ton Clicker Press. I love the machine and am only selling it because we make larger products now that made more sense to click on a larger machine so we got the 8-Ton clicker press from Weaver. We've had it for less than 6 months and never abused it, it's in great shape and still has plenty of the original grease keeping it a smooth operating machine. I'm located in north Austin, Texas. Local pickup only, don't have the crate anymore that it came in to ship it. I'm willing to deliver it to a nearby city like San Antonio if needed. Price is $900 I'll upload photos soon!

    Clicker Dies

    Shoemakers in Connecticut here, inquiring about clicker dies. We just purchased a USMC Model "C" clicker press and are eager to work it into our shoemaking process. Has anyone here had experience making clicker dies? Ordering clicker dies? I was looking at Swanson in New Hampshire as a possible die maker ... Is one die better than another? Is one die maker better/cheaper than another? Should I keep using shears until I can't keep up with my orders? Seriously though, I would love to hear anyone's experiences with clicker dies. Thanks.
  22. I have a TIppmann, barely used, with table. Doesn't work with my dies and finally found a swing arm clicker. This is good for small stuff on consistent material like veg tan shoulders or rubber, etc. New press alone is $1800, but I'll sell mine for $1000, including stand. I'm in Commerce GA. It would be really tough for me to ship, it is HEAVY. But I would try - you pay shipping.

    Alternative To Tippman Clicker Presses

    Anyone looking for a clicker press should checkout the Alpha Sample Cutter presses made by Thwing-Albert Instrument Company of West Berlin, NJ, USA. They have two models whose specifications seem to exactly match those of the Tippman presses. The link below will take you to the 15-ton press. You will find a link to the 7-ton press at the bottom of the page. While shipping and import taxes make them cost FAR too much here in Bangkok, back there in the States they may cost less than the Tippman versions if you purchase them directly from the manufacturer. If anyone checks it out, please, let the rest of us know what you find out. Cheers! Maverick PS: In the first version of this post the link I included only took you to Thwing-Albert's landing page. The link above takes you directly to the 15-ton press.
  24. Hello all, I desperately need some expert help!! I make elastic Y-back suspenders in six different colors for children, and I'd like to change the leather patch on the back. Right now, I use a faux leather in three different colors and would like to transition to one color that I can have my company name embossed on. I'm extremely green when it comes to working with genuine leather. I've searched around locally and no one can really help me start from the beginning, which is to determine the best leather to use as a back patch for suspenders. The only recommendation I've been given is to maybe try a veg tan leather. My dilemma with that is this: 1) It's not dyed! Yes I do need a color that matches all six suspender colors, but I have no idea about dyeing leather. I can find a color I think might work on the internet, but it's just a picture. I still need to know what color dye to pick and how to dye it. Can someone please tell me if veg tan is really my only option to get the right color leather needed? I don't have the expertise to do what needs to be done with veg tan and no here seems to either or at least they don't want to help. Any recommendations on how to find more potential colors or someone to dye it for me because me dyeing it isn't an option? 2) As explained to me 2/3 oz veg tan is the lowest weight in that type but it still seems too thick for these suspenders. Would you agree? I need something that can be sewn on a sewing machine but not flimsy. 3) After I've found the right leather and color, I need it to be embossed. Can you please advise the best way to make this happen? People have mentioned laser engraving to me. I've also been told about stamps you can buy. Recommendations? 4) Lastly, I've been told that this is the process I need to follow to reach the end result of the actual back patch (assuming I go with veg tan) : once the leather is bought, have the shape clicked out, dye the shape, emboss/engrave the shape, then put a finish on it. Would you agree? Is the process pretty much the same if it's already dyed (click, emboss, finish)? As a side note, I had a die of the shape professionally made, but I do not have a clicker press. It would be optimal if I can find an appropriate weight leather for suspenders that is already dyed to the right color and would emboss well. Please help!!! Thank you! C Pack
