Versa Groover for $43 (made in China)

Recommended Posts

Since Sheridan leather is gone, some of the Chinese marker made some similar tools as Bob did.

It's made from HSS-COBALT and the screw are all get hardened to ensure the performance. The price is $43(with one tip), each tip are charge for $15.

If someone is interested in this  groover, I could help with ordering it from China.

Curious, is this a replica of Bob’s design?  I would tend to agree to support Bob with a purchase if it’s his design.  It’s hard enough to find people making tools for leatherworkers let alone quality tools at that. 

If not, this tool seems well designed and reasonably priced. 

Just a note; standard shipping from China typically gets delivered in 20-30+ days.  Expedited shipping is an extra 20 bucks (7-10 days) so that may eat up any savings that you may receive.

So I am a newbie here, but I found a link that might help people order the Versa Groover directly from Bob at Douglas Saddle Company's Facebook page. Hope this isn't a repost from somewhere and that it helps somebody, especially Bob.

If you don't have Chinese friends who can help you figure it out, there are a few guides out there that teach you how to setup a Taobao account, add credit cards, etc.

Nice to see Bob back in business.  When he closed up shop I bought a lifetime supply of awls...    None finer.
