  1. Here is my newly built clicker press for under $175. All of the sales and certain matching coupons I have for harbor freight matched up this last full moon. The press for $100 and the air/hydro for $72. Score.
  2. Very lightly used Weaver Master Tools 8 ton clicker. I used to run a really small scale leather business and purchased this early 2016 directly from Weaver. I had my son a couple of months after that and never ended up opening shop again so it has barely been used. It's in great condition, one side of the cutting board is completely new and the other has light use. Inspected and tested recently to make sure it still works like new. I have the original paper manual and the stickers that came with it. It is attached to a stand and there is a shelf for storage underneath. The clicker head measures 12" x 15" and the cutting surface is 12" x 24" so it handles pretty large dies. It's heavy duty and cuts with ease. Adjustment knob for 3/4" - 1 1/4" dies. Fits in 24"x 32" of floor space and holes in legs for bolting down. Weighs approx 370 lbs Weaver Master tools product page: $2500 local pickup. I'm in Southern California (north orange county). Please DM or reply here with any questions or if interested.

  4. I have a Tippmann Clicker 1500 Die Cutting Machine on a rolling table for sale. I am moving to a smaller location and have to down size. I am asking $2500 OBO. If interested I can send pictures and details.
  5. Hello all, There are a few good threads on here discussing the best way in which to run three phase machines on 220 single phase power. While there does seem to be some difference in opinion regarding RPC vs VFD's, I cant find a consensus on how to actually match the motors. I just picked up a 25 ton Herman Schwabe clicker running a 3 HP motor. Some folks seem to think it's best to match it with a RPC with a larger motor, like a 5hp, while others say a 3HP RPC is adequate. There's a pretty significant price difference between a 3HP and 5HP converter so I just wanted to see if any of you had a reason why one would be preferable to the other. Will I have significant power loss on a 3HP converter? Any risk of burning out the motor? I plan on using a Phase-a-Matic RPC if that helps. Many thanks for all of your advice.
  6. Let's try that again, minus all the droning. Maybe even have the "for sale" section know .. stuff that's for sale? B - Makes small CURVED BACK holster. Originally designed P938 Sig, can make holsters of similar size by using appropriate stitch lines. PATTERNS for various guns not included -- that would cost more than the steel! C -- Makes back panel and REINF panel for CURVED BACK 1911 5" and 5" Operator. Accomodate Commander easily with bottom trim, and easily adapted to other pistols of similar size. More to come ... PM if interested, maybe the thread stays cleaner that way.
  7. NYC company is selling an almost new Master Tools 8 Ton Clicker. Approx. 1 year old. It's their newest version, with a welded top. Selling with cutting board -- one side completely new, the other side has some cuts into the board. It can handle fairly large dies for cutting and embossing. They used it to cut 10oz leather. Can be shipped on a pallet from Brooklyn New York. If you'd like to estimate shipping cost, the machine on a pallet is about 370lb. Here's the link from Weaver Master Tools: $2500 + shipping DM with details and where it would ship to purchase. Please serious inquiry, ready to buy, only. Thank you!
  8. I have a four ton clicker for sale. It is two years old and in next to new condition (see photos). When I bought it I wasn't sure it would do what I needed, but it has turned out to be very useful in my business. I use it for both clicking out leather and neoprene, and also embossing veg tan. Its worked out so well that I have purchased the larger 8 ton unit, mainly because the bed is quite a bit larger and I'll be able to do even more with it. Weaver sells these new for $1450. I"m asking $950 for mine. Local pick up only in Grass Valley, northern California. You can read more about this tool on Weaver's website

    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?

    Tippmann 1500 Die Cutting Press

    Looking to sell my tippmann 1500 with the actuator tank attachment and a really nice heavy duty custom table on casters that was built for it. Upgraded to an atom press recently which is why im selling this one off. Great clicker and OSHA compliant. Looking to get $3200. Im located in Miami, FL. Willing to ship but all the details have to be worked out. I'd imagine it would cost around +- $700 to ship. If you have your own forwarded set up even better.
  11. Attention! Today is the LAST day to order COWBOY SEWING MACHINES before prices go up 8% on Nov 1st due to tariffs! A lot of people have been waiting to order machines, hoping that there will be a black friday sale, or holiday discount. DON'T WAIT. Tomorrow, NOV 1st 2018, the tariffs are applied and the prices go up 8%. This increase is larger than any black friday discount that could be applied. We've put this off as long as possible, but it has to happen tomorrow. MAKE YOUR MOVE NOW! Come tomorrow, all the prices will increase. Since all of our thread is American Made, it will stay at $19/1lb cone. Alexander Blackhear President/Owner Solar Leather Machines 817-422-9151

    Texas Custom Dies

    I did a blog post review of Texas Leather Dies. I won't recreate it here, but the condensed version is --they are amazing. Ten outta ten! If you'd like the details, check it out on my website at If you're in the market for clicker dies, mallet dies, etc., I highly recommend these folks. They are also supporters. Awesome all-around!

    Leather machinery advice

    Hi all, I currently make leather bags by hand (up to 10oz thick) and am looking to buy some machinery to ease the strain on my joints - I've done some research but it's hard to find any UK sellers for most of the things suggested on this forum - I wondered if anyone could recommend any hand presses (for punching and rivet setting), hand clickers (for die cutting), and burnishing machines sold in the UK. Budget is pretty limited, hence the request for hand tools rather than hydraulic. If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Danielle

    Another Clicker post

    So my needs are simple for now. I need a press to chop out smaller pieces from piles of post commercial leather waste. My pieces hardly ever exceed 6" in any direction, most being around the 2" x 4" size. What kind of tonnage am I looking at for punching through 12 oz. to 14 oz. latigo? What would be my cheapest and easiest options? I see refurbished 'clicker presses' on eBay and I'm not sure if building the whole setup from just a ram and a stand is a good route to follow or if a completed setup is. I possess the skills to put something like this together... It's just a lot of work when I should be leather working. Currently I use a double jack sledgehammer with the handle cut short and welded steel homemade dies. This can't continue... LOL
  17. I'm seeking the advice of members who have experience of using strip knives/clicker dies for manufacturing small strap goods in the high dozens or low hundreds. I manufacture dog collars in a few standard sizes from two layers of waxed 2mm chrome-tan. At the moment my procedure is: Cut strips to final width using wooden strap cutter Mark all holes and lengths using a story stick and dividers Cut to length with knife and end punch Punch rivet and tongue holes using standard hole punches Skive turnback Glue Add buckle and rivet in place Machine stitch all round Add D-ring and rivet in place Punch buckle holes (The leather I use is through-dyed and the fibres quite tight so I don't edge finish in any way. Both I and my customers are happy with that.) With sales speeding up and trade enquiries coming in I'm looking at getting cutting dies made. The objectives are to reduce production time and eliminate errors caused by mismeasuring and operator error (strap cutter!). A further objective is to test the feasibility of this approach with a view to offering other products that cannot be made using a strap cutter and would be uneconomically slow to cut by hand. I've specced about a dozen dies before and been happy with all of them however I've never specced any that need very tight alignment between two different dies. My dilemma is this: can I reasonably expect the backer/lining die to cut a piece that matches perfectly with the top piece? This is in reference to outline and adjustment holes. If not I could spec the lining to be cut a little wider and longer than the top piece and trim the lining by hand once stitched together. Similarly, I could spec the die with adjustment holes only in the top piece and punch the holes through the lining manually. However both of these approaches still allow for operator error and will take some time, reducing the efficiency savings that using dies might bring. My main alternative plan is to spec some dies without cutting edges just punches in the relevant places. I will mount it into my fly press and use it to punch pre-cut strips held by an alignment jig. These dies will be long, involve several punch tubes, and I need to order them in several sizes so they represent a significant financial outlay. Any relevant advice will be greatly appreciated!
  18. Has anyone used an unplugged hydraulic t-shirt heat press as an alternative to steel rule die clickers?
  19. Hello all, I have been reading clicker die threads for about an hour or so and haven't seen this mentioned. I really do try to search before posting so here goes. I have a clicker press and have used dies to cut out various projects but I have not ever cut them from the flesh side. (I didn't have the need to before) I am wanting to have some more dies made and it would be much more affordable to have a single die made that I could simply flip the leather to get the other side cut out. Doe it work just as well cutting from the flesh side as it does the other way around or does it look different? IE: Distort the grain side or leave a lot of fuzzy bits? I have noticed when cutting from the grain side it leaves a very nice cut edge that slightly rounded over. It is beautiful and as close to perfect as I need but haven't paid a lot of attention to the flesh side when I have been cutting. I am trying to not have more dies made than I need and if they will cut just as well either way it would basically save me half by not having the mirror die made. If anyone has tried it both ways please let me know what you would recommend. On the outer edges they will be sanded and burnished so it's not as critical. On the edge of an inner flap or pocket it may or may not be burnished depending on the style I am shooting for. I appreciate any feedback you might be able to provide. Thanks in advance. Scott

  23. I have a 20 ton Sandt 406 swing head hydraulic clicker press that just sits there, and I sit at my desk looking at it. Its getting old. So I am offering my services doing clicking for you, if you need some done. I used to buy leather from Ohio, have it sent to Kentucky for clicking and then finally get to see it when it arrived in Wisconsin, but I eliminated the middle man a few years ago buying this paperweight from hell. It may also be for sale, if someone has a kind offer. Located in Monticello, WI

    Does anyone in the Houston, Texas area have a clicker press that you would rent? I would prefer to have something with a swing arm, to make die placement more accurate. I have 150 notebook covers to make and would LOVE to make my life easier! Thanks! Tyler Newberry Nice Custom Goods
