  1. How is something like this done? In particular the two toned colours on the embossing, my guess is dye then emboss then use a flat roller to paint just the tops? Also where's the best place to get custom leather embossing rollers? I know about Sergey at Leather Stamp Tools. Thanks everyone!
  2. Hey everyone, I hope you all are doing well. I have a KWIK Print model 86 hot foil stamping/embossing machine that I'm looking to part with. I wanted to offer it here first because, well, I just like the idea of it being put to use on leather more than I care to think about "Karen" from my kid's PTA using it to stamp out hair ribbons for some toddler beauty pageant or something. Feel free to call me biased if you'd like- you wouldn't be wrong. The machine is in great condition with nothing in regards to any flaws or damage to mention. Everything works as it should, and there won't be any negative surprises with it. I purchased the machine roughly 2-3 years ago for a large job that I was offered, and as happens to all of us at least once it seems, what was a guaranteed as a "sure thing," fell through no sooner than I bought the machine. Other than just here-and-there, it's just been taking up space in my workshop as I've transitioned more to woodworking as of late and nowadays seldom find myself working with hide very often at all. I wasn't quite ready to give up the idea of it being something I would eventually put to good use, but my wife is unexpectedly expecting our 3rd child in May (she vehemently swears it's mine but I'm not ready to give up hope just yet). We'll be moving to a larger soon, so things like this Kwik Print are having to find a new home, as well. The machine comes with the heating element, a separate heat controller, line finder, multi-line type holder, automatic foil feeder attachment, and an assortment of dies consisting of 3-6+/- of each letter of the alphabet and maybe some other odd and end dies such as punctuation and whatnot, I'm not entirely sure as I type this. All of these things are sold as "options" through the manufacturer, but without them, the machine is essentially useless. As far as I know, all of these "options" include everything that's available for these machines. New, the bare machine will run you right at $1800, and with the "add-on," it pushes the total price to $4000 give or take a few bucks. I purchased the machine secondhand for $1800. I'm not quite sure the exact figure right at this moment, but I can assure you that this thing weighs a pretty substantial amount. My guess is it weighs just a touch less than the burden my wife is putting on me to sell it. As a result, I'm unfortunately going to have to restrict shipping to the U.S. lower 48. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii and are interested in it, you'd probably be better off just buying a plane ticket and coming to grab it yourself. If you're that hellbent on it, I'd be more than happy to meet you at the airport haha. I'm located in central Mississippi and if a transaction is imminent, I could swing driving a couple of hours in any direction if it helped saved someone some time and a few bucks on the shipping. I'm asking $1000+ shipping. If shipping exceeds $300, then the machine + shipping is yours at $1300 total. If it's less than $300, you can keep the difference. I'll accept payment through PayPal or CashApp. If it'd make you more comfortable, I have no issues photographing myself with my I.D. or whatever other reasonable request that you may have in order to give you some assurance that I'm a legitimate person wanting to make a legitimate deal. If that's not sufficient, then I do have a small eBay account that I mainly use to sell antique watches on, and I could list the machine for sell there for you to purchase it through them. However, with seller's fees being what they are, and the fact they take fees from the shipping costs, as well, the final price would have to be at $150 more than the previous mentioned final figure. If you have any questions at all, hell they don't even have to be about the machine (I'm quite knowledgeable about all things related to kids), or if you would like additional photos, please do not hesitate to ask. In an attempt to save on shipping costs and protect the machine, I will be disassembling it for shipping, and will be shipping the cast iron parts in one package, and the heat controller, heating element, type holder, etc., in another. I'll be sure to bag the hardware in a way that should make it as easy as possible to reassemble. If you've ever successfully used the defrost setting on a microwave, reassembly won't be any issue for you. It's not that the two things are similar in any way, but I feel like that's a decent enough gauge of competency to go by. I appreciate you taking to time to read all of this. Thanks.

  5. KWIKPRINT Model 55, Hot Foil Leather Stamping Machine, Excellent Working Condition - meticulously stored and cared for. A regrettable sale, however, between work + young kids, I don't have time to use the machine like it deserves. Its had minimal use and is in near perfect condition. Included with the machine, are all parts and accessories as shown in the pictures, including step down transformer, basic leather crafting tools + spare foil and some leather off-cuts. Has original instruction manual. Photos show the indicator light for heating in progress and the temperature gauge from 0°F to 200°F. *** A 104 piece custom made font set can be sold individually, however, I'd prefer to sell as a package. The font set is brass in York Font 24pt. I had this custom made in the UK and cost over $1,000 *** I will sell as a package for $3,199 which is excellent value as I'm in the process of moving house and would like a quick sale, therefore, price accordingly. I'm also willing to throw in the workbench at no additional cost (for local pickup only). Dimensions of the machine are 52cm x 52cm x 60cm. Weight approx. 20-25kgs. Those who have a passion for leather work will know how rare these machines are to come by in Australia. Pick up from Broadview, SA. Prefer to sell locally, however, will ship interstate or overseas at the purchaser's expense. Feel free to message me if you require any further information.

  7. Hi, I have recently started increasing my leatherworking and as such have been using different dyes and started really embossing leather. Previously I would only have used Eco-Flo gel Antique on embossed leather as it sits nice in the grooves and darkens them. However, having watched several how to videos I am now experimenting with using normal dyes (currently have a Fiebings Waterstain that I am using) and then using a finish to darken the groves of the embossed bits. In the video I watched they used Fiebings Antique Stain finish but I cannot seem to get the black version of that anywhere online for a decent price (I am in Dublin, Ireland). So instead I got Eco-Flo gel antique black as from what I can tell they do the same thing. Here comes my problem, I tried it out on a small piece of leather that I stamped a little, Dyed it green with the waterstain and then applied the gel after it dried and tried to wipe the excess off straight away but it didn't really come off and just left a black smear over the green. I applied it with a dense sponge and wiped it off with a kitchen towel wrapped around a sponge. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a difference between the two antiques and should I keep looking for the fiebings one? Hopefully somebody can help as I really want to start using more colours but the whole idea of embossing is to get that nice dark vs light effect. Cheers, Jelle
  8. Heat embossing machine with 3 extra stamp holders that I had custom made! Works great for heat embossing and hot foiling. I have a letter set for sale too that works great with this machine. I have included one partially used roll of gold foil.
  9. Looking to purchase a creasing/embossing machine new but figured I would ask around first for a used model before throwing out that kind of $$$$. Thanks in advance!
  10. Hello, Just got a heat embosser and have been experimenting with different types of leathers and heat temps. I went a bit to hot and the heat plate just absorbed the aluminum foil paper and now I have all the residue left on the inner plate. Any idea how to remove this without sanding or using much abrasives? thanks for the help! Frank
  11. Greetings, Just thought I would show some of the stuff I make. I'm showing for a couple of reasons. (1) People are occasionally asking about putting lettering on leather (vegetable tanned) in circles and (2) Some design features of medallion holders and pen/pencil holders and closures. The following four pictures show a book cover that I had obtain to permission from Cocaine Anonymous to make since their CA logo is a registered trademark. After I received the "one-time, single use" permission I used some moveable lead printing type to form the logo. The "CA" was formed with the Baskerville printing type font and the HOPE, FAITH and COURAGE were formed with the Stymie printing type fonts. The circles were sections of PVC pipe and metal pipe cut to the same height as the printing type. A book press was used to emboss the logo into the cased vegetable tanned leather. I wish I had a good clicker, but the book press works OK for me. The little ® registered trademark symbol was formed with a small letter "R" and the circle around it was just the light impress of a small hole punch The prayer in the center was produced by http://www.greyghostgraphics.com/stamps.html and was pressed into the leather with the same book press. The Grey Ghost graphic stamp was a stamp without a handle. The pen/pencil snap/strap is just a simple way to add to any completed slip-on book cover. The medallion holder is a little more complex. The applique sewing channel was formed like the circles in the logo and then a hole was cut out with a 1-1/2" punch. The leather was dyed with antique dye. Then a clear .020 vinyl section was glued to the back side of the applique patch with contact cement. The applique was temporarily placed on the front and the location for the second hole was marked on the cover. That marked hole was punched out with the same 1-1/2" punch. Then the applique was place in the cover, aligning the two holes, with double back leather tape from http://www.wawak.com/products/product.cfm?pID=8677. The applique was sewn on and the medallion was adhered to the piece the was punched out of the cover. The medallion/leather circle is placed in the hole a taped in with Gorilla tape. The medallion is easily changed by pealing back the Gorilla tape and replacing the medallion.

  12. What heat embosser/foil stamp machines do you like. Truthfully, I'm mostly looking for heat embossing, not foil, but most of them offer both. I've found the most info about the Dream Factory stamping machine and all reviews seem great, but they are pricey. The one criticism I find is the lack of instructions in multiple languages, but other than that, people seem to love it and it's constructed well. I know Tandy has a heat imprinter, but have not heard of anyone who either loves or hates it. There's a ton of knockoffs from China on Amazon and Etsy for more in the $400 or less range, but it's hard to know if any of these are quality. I'm mostly stamping a logo, and sometimes initials or text in veg tan. Recommendations welcome! Thanks!
  13. I'm about to finalise an alphabet stamp set order with Hex n Hit stamps and want to make sure they are suitable for use with my Kwikprint machine (I have a model #55). Having a little difficulty getting clarification from the stamp maker, probably due to language barrier. If anyone knows or has used these stamps, will be much appreciated if you can comment. Cheers,
  14. Greetings from Nor'Easter region, It's been close to a decade since I did any projects but after getting a Single Action Army and a new skinning blade blank I've gotta dust off the cobwebs and see what I remember. I started on a Tandy beginners box set that was probably made for teens but after a few projects on some oak shoulders and scraps from a friend I started getting into it. Past projects where coin purses, messenger style bags, sheaths and a few whips, the stand out ones where the 8ft bull whip and the cat o' nine tails. Recently I acquired a SAA revolver and the holster I plan to make will probably be worth more than the gun itself, no offense H&R, she's a fun little .22 and I like her. I also found some new knife blanks that may or may not be the greatest but I've only had them a few days and they feel nice and they need a proper dressing. I've been a carpenter/woodworker my whole life so I have the handle ideas down but I will have questions on ideas for sheathing styles and patterns. Suppose since I will have enough veg tan left after the SAA holster I should make one for my 9mm but I may put that on hold while I try a run at a Tombstone replica rig for the single action. Heard rumor Doc carried double action revolvers in real life so I might not match the guns but I will try his suspender style rig, looks a little awkward but probably functions well, I do prefer a cross draw. I will post a picture of my first project because it's really how I started years ago, Tandy precut and all, also I will post the the two new items that need some new clothes. I will be asking a few questions here and there if I don't find them in the forum search. I think tonight I'm just gonna skim the forums and work on my Dubbin mix. Found some local beeswax from the same guy that sold me our Christmas tree and gonna put it to some use.
  15. I have a Tandy 32418-00 Imprinting Machine with a lot of attachments. Before I put it on Ebay, I would like to offer it up here. What would be a fair price?
  16. Hi, ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED. I have purchased a Kwikprint Model #55 and have come across a very reasonably priced Kingsley type/font set. Does anyone know if Kingsley type fits the Kwikprint. Can't seem to find anything specific about this through my research. Cheers,

  19. Hi, Just wondered if anyone would be interested in Craftool Co. Sets 8136 - 1/2" Number Set (250g) 8135 - 3/4" Number Set (450g) 8134 1/4" Alphabet & Number Set (250g) 8130 1/2" Alphabet Set (500g) 8142 1/2" Wood Alphabet Set (500g) 8131 3/4" Alphabet Set (800g) 1" Zodiac Set (600g) 3/4" Celtic Alphabet Set (1kg) Not really sure on price if I'm honest, it seems to vary :/ I am in the UK, postage to the USA for example is £13 which is up to 2kg weight, that was just a quick look, might be cheaper elsewhere. I have weighed them and the figures are pretty much spot on, so a little room for packaging will need to be considered. I can add pictures if requested. Anyway let me know if anyone is interested and thanks for looking Janine

  22. I am wanting to learn how to emboss leather like they did in the old days from the flesh side to make my projects truly 3D. Anyone have any info on this or know where I can find some info on it? Thanks in advance
  23. I've been making custom stamps with my laser engraver out of 1/4" acrylic. I thought originally acrylic would not work, but to my surprise it works very well with an arbor press. They're not indestructible, but as long as apply even pressure, these will last a very long time. I'm selling them for $10ea.. that includes shipping. A small art fee may apply if you have something complex.. $5 to $15 .. PM me if interested Ron
