Cobra Class 3 - For Sale (S.fl.)

Recommended Posts

Cobra Class 3: http://www.leatherma...ather-stitcher/

Purchased new in 2009 from Steve Tayrien @ Leather Mahcine Co. If you noticed the color of the machine being different, mine is one of the last of the previous version. I have printed corresondence confirming this.

The machine's main task was used to build holsters and belts. It also did lighter and heavier projects and repairs. It was oiled, cleaned and maintained in an indoor environment. It is a solid, working, capable, and surprisingly versatile (with proper thread and needle) stitching machine. This is not your grandma's curtain stitcher.

Comes with all tools, accessories, bobbins, hardware, instruction manual and CD that came with the stitcher when new. It's ready to work when you get it set up. Also included are extra packets of needles (different sizes), presser feet and black & white thread.

Set up right off the pallet

Ready to work - light attached and leather covered table.

The machine is currently disassembled and boxed for a cross country move.

If you've been around leatherwork, you are familiar with this machine's work capabilities.

$1600 cash, Pick up in Broward Co., FL. The stand and machine head are HEAVY and BIG. Bring an appropriate vehicle and persons to help load.

If you must have this and it has to be shipped within the continental US, I can get it palletized if you make it worth my while. Also you will be looking at a freight rate. I paid $225 and the palletized weight when it came to me when new was 325lbs. Set your expectations accordingly for what it will cost to ship on top of the purchase price.

If we must conduct business electronically because you wish to ship this machine I will take steps to protect myself from scammers. I prefer a USPS money order (you will need to buy several to add up to the amount) or a bank cashier's check. If you wish to use paypal you must prove to me your status and dependability. I have caveats on PP too. If you wish you use a personal check I will hold shipping until it clears. I will not accept any other money orders. I will not do COD. Frankly and up front, if I get spooked and feel uncomfortable about the transaction that is not put to rest by adequate and timely communication between me and you, I will back out and there will be no sale.

Trades: If you want to know if I'll take trades the answer is yes. If we are doing trades I expect you to be local. Trades taking place at shipping distances go too wrong and I won't deal with it. I will consider equivalent trades to the total cost of this machine.

:thumbsdown: - I don't want your broke down fourwheeler or broke down anything else. I don't want knock off tools or stolen goods. I don't want a random dish or doll collection. No phones, computers or electronics. No furniture. No refinishing, contracting, construction, landscaping, cleaning, or painting services.

:spoton: - I do like tools, machines, firearms and toys/outdoor/recreational equipment; names like: Miller, Hobart, Lincoln, SnapOn, BCM, Colt, Noveske, Federal, PMC, Winchester, Remington, Mossberg, Sig Sauer, Springfield, Dillon, Arctic Cat, Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki.

*** I will be busy the next two weeks with family obligations. It will be difficult for me to focus attention on this deal until after my commitments. This ad is to get word out that a Cobra Class 3 is available so buyers can start making plans. ***

Send inquiries to me via PM. I will answer and we can get commed over to email.

Thanks

I am curious about what changed from this version to the latest version.

Well, best answer is send Steve an email @ Leather Machine Co. I have a feeling looking at the current specs, not much has changed. 2009 wasn't that long ago :lol: The machine isn't a dinosaur and it is one of the best leather stitching platforms. I wouldn't get hungup on versions. Believe me, this machine isn't lacking. The proof is down below.

  • Best and most versatile presser feet in the business I need a definition/qualification for this

  • Sews from 6 oz. to 7/8″ CHECK

  • Thread sizes from 69 to 415 ? not certain of the quoted upper and lower #, don't want to say "yes" on a guess

  • Triple Feed mechanism - ? not certain what this is referring too

  • Reverse stitches in same holes CHECK

  • Stitch Length from 3-22 stitches an inch CHECK

  • Sews pads, blankets,webbing, canvas, bio-plastics, upholstery, etc… CHECK

  • 28 LED Super Beam Lamp - ? I'll have to double check mine to see which version

  • Heavy Duty Speed Reducer CHECK

  • Digital DC Servo Motor CHECK

Accessories:

  • 10 #25 leather point needles CHECK

  • Thread Stand CHECK

Frankqv, glad to hear you are relatively nearby. (Seems I'm far from everybody way down here).

Any questions that I can answer for you?

The only difference I see between the two models is the ugly brown paint on the newer stuff.
