  1. Located in Houston, TX. $1,500 I am selling my Cowboy CB341 that was purchased May of 2018 from Solar Leather. I used it to make 3 handbags in 2 years. I hate to part with it but life happens. The black and white thread is #92 (never used). I prefer to sell local, I wouldn't even begin to know how to crate it to ship. Video: of the machine sewing, not sure how to add the video directly here.
  2. Hey everyone, bought a Cowboy hand crank splitter, nope, living in South Africa nobody has Cobra and Landis you do not find often. Got the machine, no instructions, not set up properly. What I need to know is where to set the blade in relation to the infeed wheels, cannot get this sucker working, if money were no object I would get the Cobra. Need to get this sorted. Here is a cross cut view of what I need to know. Can anyone give me perhaps a drawing of where the blade should ideally sit in relation to the infeed rollers and relative height! Please, soo frustrated, if it was lighter I would have thrown it out of the window by now! Sorry about the artwork.
  3. As little as two years ago, there was a significant lower price incentive for buying Cowboy sewing machines over comparable model Cobra sewing machines. Now that the price of Cowboy sewing machines have jumped up, they are virtually the same price as their comparable Cobra model sewing machines. So my question is: Is there any benefit of buying a Cowboy sewing machine over a Cobra sewing machine? Example Cowboy CB3500 ($2,595 at time of writing) vs Cobra Class 3 ($2,635 at time of writing). To me, for $40 more, why not go with the Cobra. I'd love to know thoughts either way.
  4. I have a Consew 225 I’m willing to trade/part trade for the right deal. It comes with a servo motor, larger head unit pulley/smaller servo pulley for ultra slow speed. I just want something newer. I’m located in SW Washington.
  5. I’m looking at buying one of the above splitters new. I’m located in Australia and these seem to be the best two on offer. Just wondering if anyone had feedback on either - pros and cons for them. I know the obvious is the size of the split but other than that does anyone have experience with both and could shed some light on the preference. Thanks kaysi

  7. Like NEW less than 2 hours of use, REALLY! (this is why my wife hates it when I get bonus checks, I make spur of the moment purchases)! $1950.00 (COVID FREE!!) I will deliver within 50 miles of 92691 Zip Code, otherwise, we can negotiate it! I bought this when we were planning on moving, as the first piece of my new workshop, but our situation has changed and we are not moving, I can only use this when I clear room out of our den to make space for it, then need to pack it back away! It's a shame because it is awesome and works perfectly, can sew anything I can run through it, and more! For the time being, I will just hand stitch my small sites, and leave the large items to others. Cowboy industrial sewing machines (by Toledo Industrial) are built as tough as tanks and are capable of sewing thick leather, cloth, webbing, bioplastic, and other materials, with heavy thread. Capacity: The Cowboy CB3200 Leather Stitcher or Leather Sewing Machine, pictured here, is capable of sewing up to 1/2" of saddle leather, with up to #346 bonded nylon or polyester thread. Mechanism: It has a cylinder arm of 10.5 inches in length; ideal for sewing belts, collars, tack, holsters, book covers, all sorts of cases, chaps, chinks, guitar straps, and saddlebags. The feed is performed by a compound, triple feed walking foot, which ensures that all layers will move together. The presser feet, known as Harness Feet, are made of stainless steel. My unit also has the optional flat table to give the cylinder arm a flatbed application for sewing of larger or longer items. The CB3200 uses the same bobbins, feet, and needles as other Cowboy machines. The primary difference from those models is the removable U shaped table to convert the Cylinder Arm to a Flat Table Machine. The sewing stand/table size is 22" wide x 48" long and the top is 33" off floor. The sewing surface height is 37" from the floor. Included: My CB3200 purchase comes complete with a motor and table and narrow double toe harness presser feet. Also included are four bobbins and one pack of needles. Model: CB3200 Arm Length: 10.5" Arm Diameter: 3 9/16" Maximum Foot Lift: 5/8"" Max Sewn Thickness: 1/2" Thread Sizes: #69 - #346 Bobbins: 7/8" x 1" large capacity Max Speed: 800 rpm Max Stitch Length: 2 per inch Reverses into same holes High torque servo motor, with front panel speed control knob Ball bearing 3:1 speed reducer U shaped cut-out table, on casters Adjustable Pedestal stand upgrade $100.00 Removable flatbed conversion table attachment: $95 Magnetic mount, LED flex lamp My Actual Machine
  8. Purchased fall 2019 from Techsew. I am cutting material that is to soft for machine I couldn’t get it to cut correct( all mechanical parts non electronic with machine. ) . It is for vegtan leather greater than 5-6 ounce. Want to sell for $1,800 I will include the table and servo motor - willing to negotiate on those SEPARATE items. Local pick up only - Tulare county California 93274. It weighs 250pounds my name is Ken - only serious buyers will I give out my phone number to. Thanks
  9. The Cobra and Techsew big packages offer similar capacities and attachments other than the Techsew having the laser guide and coming with EPS. Are there any other significant differences? I know Cobra is all American made, but don't know about Techsew. I don't know if Cowboy offers an everything and the kitchen sink pkg or not, but would certainly entertain it as another American made option. Decisions decisions...
  10. Hello, I’m a longtime reader and member and now a first time poster. I’m nervous that I’ll do something wrong. I mean no disrespect, so let me know if I do. I have tried, but I still can’t figure out how to make adjustments to/raise my Cowboy-335’s lower feed dogs. I bought my Cowboy four years ago at the spot in Toledo and yes, I have recently tried to call them and I know they even have a history of posting here but I haven’t talked to them and it’s a 2 hour drive to go there. 2 weeks ago I had my first problem with my Cowboy. Maybe I was sewing through too much leather. Between then and today I have learned a lot about my machine! Maybe I turned something simple into something complicated.That’s o.k., though, because I need to know how to be my own mechanical engineer if I want a smooth machine or 2. I have googled. I have perused this website. I have printed and read through a lot, including the Navy Airmen chapters, and more. Today I went to YouTube and saved some videos. Before I start looking through them, I decided to reach out here. If anybody is familiar with my machine and/or if anybody could link me to specifically useful online print or video sources it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
  11. Like new Cobra Class 4 premium package. Used less than 1 hour. I had a holster business and Tandy Leather dealership years ago. Thought I would get back into it and changed my mind. Machine, several spools of thread (black, brown etc.), tool box, maule, punches, knives, bevelers, swivel knife, HD stamp/rivet press, dies for press, Clicker Dies: two types of western holsters, iwb, pancake, foldover for small caliber, cowboy cuffs (2), gun belt buckle and tongue dies, rounder, practice piece, arrow head, spur straps, iwb leather belt loop. These are high quality clicker dies with almost no wear. YOU DO NOT NEED A CLICKER TO USE DIES - you simply lay the die on concrete or other hard surface (blade up), place you leather over the die and tap around the die with a maul or mallet. In minutes you have a perfect cut out. The concealment holster dies are not shown and are steel rule/plywood dies. The press is not shown either. I forgot to mention that I have an extra motor/tabletop for the sewing machine. Also some gun molds (red gun and Duncan alum) $3800. These items are included with the machine: Premium Accessory Package: Left Toe Presser Foot $75* Open Toe Center Foot $65* Double Toe Presser Foot $80* Right Toe Presser Foot $75* Work Platform $95* Holster Plate $156* Stirrup Plate $156* Slotted Plate $85* Blanket Set (Inside & Outside Feet w/ Feed Dog) $150* Heavy Duty Roller Edge Guide $95* Pair of Thread Nippers $2* LDA-1 Magnetic LED Light $20* Owner and parts manual
  12. I recently bought a Cowboy Cb4500 and could not be happier with it. I got 277 thread with the machine and two sizes of needles 180/24 and 200/25, in 7x4 Diameter, the 180/24 for if I use the 277 on lighter leathers, but I was looking at perhaps getting some 138 thread thread for some lighter leather projects. On Cobra's website I seen they had some 135x8 that can go up to size 22 needle for use with 138 thread. I was curious what the difference in 7x4 and 135x8 needles in leatherpoints are? I figured I would just order 7x4 in size 23 for 138 thread, but was curious what the difference in the two types of needles are?
  13. My cousin wanted a wallet made from the tops of an old pair of work boots. He's a junkman that goes by the name "Junkman" and goes through work boots like crazy. The outer is from the boots and the inner is 2/3oz veg tan.
  14. I do a lot of heel and halfsole replacements in the shop and unfortunately these days it seems our Vibram heels aren't holding up like they used to. I had two pairs recently that were down to the washers and I put them on four months ago. Amazonas are supposedly as bad or worse. Anyone have a good cowboy heel that may be a bit harder construction for concrete and field work?
  15. 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 www.solar-leather.com 817-422-9151
  16. Hello! I desperately need a leather sewing machine and I've done a lot of research and simply cannot decide what's best. I mostly make handbags with leather and heavy canvas, and I've been doing a combination of sewing what I can on my Janome HD 3000 (great for apparel sewing but can only handle about 1/4" of leather at most) and then hand sewing like crazy. I'm fairly convinced that a cylinder bed would be best for my needs. I've read great things about the Cobra Class 4 and the Cowboy 4500, but I worry that they won't sew well with lighter weight applications. For instance, I read that the Cobra Class 4 uses thread sizes #138 - #415, but I often need to sew with thread as small as #69 with a 18/110 needle. So then I looked at the Cowboy 3200 and the Cobra Class 3 and Class 26. They seem more reasonable in terms of sewing lighter weight leathers but the fact that they all have only about a 10" arm seems like a ridiculously small amount of clearance. I was tempted to buy a Singer Cobbler Patcher 29 found near me on craigslist, but I do occasionally need to sew through 3/8" or even 1/2" and it apparently can't handle that on a regular basis. I'm also having trouble finding dealers on the east coast. I live in Maine, so if someone could direct me toward a good dealer in the Northeast, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much! Michaela
  17. Was having a bit of trouble sewing wallets on my 3200 so I made a quick table to aid in keeping items level while I stitch. Need to make the throat a bit deeper on the table but it works as is quite well.
  18. Hello I need your help to fix my issue on my CB 4500 The needle touch this part (behind red arrow) and cut my treat. I have followed the awesome Uwe video and check the hook timing. It seems to be ok, but no way to know how the adjust this small part Any idea? Thank for this David from France
  19. The time is coming soon that I am either adding an electric machine to use in addition to my Tippmann Boss, or getting a larger machine to replace it. What I'm looking at is the CB3200 and using that for belts, knife sheaths, some of my holsters and using the Boss for my thicker holsters. Or possibly getting the CB4500 and selling the Boss. I have sewn 5 layers of 9/10oz with my Boss in the past. The only downside was I had to mark my stitch locations and lift the presser foot and move my work to get the stitch length I wanted. Will the 4500 handle that thickness without manually moving the work for 5 to 6 stitches per inch? Will the CB4500 sew thinner material like the 3200? I have used my boss to sew a few lead shot filled suede pouches to use for weights and it did just fine after I adjusted the tension lower. The 4500 package is $1000 more than the 3200 without any extras. I'm guessing I could figure another $300 to $400 for presser feet and edge guide if I choose the 3200? What would the Boss be worth being just over a year old if I decide to sell it? If I go with the 4500, I see no need to keep it, and I am pretty certain whatever I could get out of it would offset the price difference between the two machines I am interested in. Thank in advance.
  20. I have a bit of a dilemma. I am fairly new to leatherwork. I am in my 60s and still work part-time as a government contractor. At this point, I am just a hobbyist but may want to try to sell some goods in the future. I am most interested in making knife sheets and holsters and some motorcycle accessories. I jump into everything with both feet. I've already spent several thousand dollars on a variety of tools and other necessities. I am from a law enforcement background so I have a lot of connections in that field and in the motorcycle field, so that is where my customer base would be. I have been hand stitching up to this point and I have to say the results are actually pretty good. I would like to speed things up a bit with the sewing machine. I have been longing for a Tipmann Boss. I have read every review that I can find but there doesn't seem to be a real consensus. I have also been looking at the Cowboy and Cobra electric machines. The Boss is expensive but affordable. The electric machines are crazy expensive for a hobbyist. The mistake I don't want to make is buying the Boss and being dissatisfied with it a year later and buying the electric machine. Has anyone used the Boss long-term? Have you wished that you had just taken a big bite out of the bullet and bought the electric machine?
  21. For general splitting and harness work is one of the semi industrial spitter machines offered on the market today under $3k superior over the others? Silverd
  22. Pretty sure this has been said somewhere and if it's not allowed then a mod can delete it. Just recieved my new machine Friday. So far it's doing everything it should. I'm completely new to the sewing machine world but Bob at http://www.tolindsewmach.com/ helped me tremendously. I'm not endorsed by anyone here nor do I wanna be. Just appreciate old fashioned customer service. My only problem with the machine is the light that came with it doesn't work. I let Bob know and he said he would have one on the way. It's surprising this day and time that you can find customer service like this. Thanks Bob!
  23. I have a CB3200. When the needle is cycling around the top, and only at slower speeds, I get a distinct "click". I keep it oiled (I sometimes get oil on the leather) but it still clacks on slow speeds. Am I missing something or is this normal? It's done this since I've had it.
  24. Well, after getting some practice, including gluing up a proper thickness piece, I stitched a knife sheath. It went PRETTY well. I went REALLY slowly. I didn't use the edge guide, as I'm waiting on a part. I only messed up on the stitch line once, at the acute angle at the tip of the sheath. If I hadn't used a stitch groover it wouldn't show as much. I'm thinking I'll darken the visible line somehow. I'll be cutting a slot in the needle foot so I can see the line better. I imagine with practice I'll get a better at following the line. It appears that I'll have to do some more grinding/sanding on some parts, like the feed dog or edges of the plate. On the back you can see some sharp cuts from those parts. I didn't mind so much hand stitching the smaller, thinner projects, but keeping the back of the piece straight was always a challenge for me. Also, the thickness of holsters and welted sheaths was not as much fun as I'd like. This monster of a machine didn't break a sweat, though! The edges aren't finished yet. Just did some quick burnishing so far.
  25. Anxiously waiting for my new Cowboy 3200 to be delivered.
