If your looking for a great leather stitcher,nows your chance to save big money!!! Way below the cost from a dealership!!! 

This is a Local Pickup only,but,if your not further than 200 miles maybe we can work something out within reason. 

If This is the case:



I am selling our like NEW  Cowboy 4500 leather stitcher with a lot of extras!!!!Includes the machine head, table,servo motor with speed reducer and all the add on accessories!In like new excellent condition,used maybe 10 hours. Featured on leather worker.net and all your high end leather working catalogs,and Leather craftsman Bruce Cheaney among many other highly skilled craftsman.Sadly it  does not suit our needs for it is made for heavy duty sewing of thick leather. Such as saddles,saddle bags,holsters, gun and knife sheathes ect. I make clothes and light bags,my husband was gonna start making knife sheathes,holsters,motorcycle gear,such as saddle bags and fix hockey gear. His life took a different direction so now it just sadly sits waiting to be loved and used. If you noticed,this machine is a cylinder arm which also has a flatbed table that can be mounted if you prefer a flatter surface to sew on. It's like having two different machines in one. Which saves. A lot of shop space. This machine comes with all the extra accessories and upgrades. Please visit their website at tolindsew.com to learn more.  There are also many YouTube videos of the Cowboy 4500  machine in action. This is also made exactly like the Cobra class 4-P,same factory,but better stainless steel parts,and lighter color finish. All pressure feet and feed dogs are made of high quality stainless steel. All original manuals for machine and servo motor are included and have been well cared for. The machine has always been covered and well oiled and will also come with oilers and tools.As I took the pictures today, I also gave the machine a good run and it sews perfectly. This thing is built like a tank. Sews through thick leather like butter!The base has lockable caster wheels that turn in any direction,which makes for easy moving. Also the height can be adjusted for seated or standing positions. Blanket foot is excellent for sewing heavy cloth/canvas, or heavy cloth to leather. This machine has a removable roller guide to aid in straight stitch lines. Also when stitching in reverse it uses same holes!! That is awesome!

Sorry but This is a local sale only, we may be able to help get it to its new home providing it's not over 200 miles away and payment has cleared. So if interested please contact me through eBay. Serious inquiries only!

Everything you need is here to get started except the leather. This machine has a powerful servo motor with a speed reducer. The torque is excellent to stitch even the thickest hides.  I've included. Some pictures of the various thicknesses of leather sewn on this machine. It is. A PowerHorse!  

Also from their website:

Cowboy industrial sewing machines are built as tough as tanks and are capable of sewing thick leather, cloth, webbing, bioplastic and other materials, with heavy thread.

The Cowboy CB4500 leather stitcher is capable of sewing up to 7/8" of saddle leather, with up to #415 bonded nylon or polyester thread.

It has a cylinder arm of 16.5 inches in length; ideal for sewing horse saddles. The feed is performed by a compound, triple feed walking foot, which ensures that all layers will move together. The pressor feet, known as Harness Feet, are made of stainless steel, as are the throat cover plates. A blanket foot set, with teeth on the bottom, is available, instead of, or in addition to the harness feet, for those sewing cloth items and horse blankets, rather than only leather. 

Every new CB4500 purchase comes complete with a motor and table, choice of regular or harness pressor feet, one standard throat plate and feed dog to match feet, and a swing-away roller edge guide. Also included are four bobbins and one pack of 10 needles (to match your preferred thread size).

Uses for this machine include saddlery, leather and bioplastic harnesses and bridles, gun holsters, ammo pouches, gun belts, weight belts, nylon webbing tow ropes, animal collars and leashes.

The Cowboy cylinder arm sewing machines all feature a strong industrial table, with a powerful servo motor and a speed reducer.

These tables on the Cobra's and Cowboy cylinder arms are a disgrace. They are junk!  Designed by fools and manufactured by clowns. The retailors that sell them should be ashamed of themselves.

You know there are many folks on here that have bought either of these machines including the tables.

I can't believe that yours is the only one out of the bunch that is soooooo bad. Maybe you didn't install it correctly or possibly it was simply a bad item for you.

First and only one you have bought I assume.


Contact the dealer with your concerns, works 95% of the time.

I really like mine (Cowboy).  I like the machine and the table top.  They work great and have increased the enjoyment I get from my hobby by 10x.

I had a Cowboy 3200 with table and it fit like a glove.

it takes a while to adjust, I'll give you that, but all in all it was a good fit.

this post was about selling a machine, not to criticize.
