For Sale: Old Model Fortuna Skiving Machine

Recommended Posts

I have an older model Fortuna skiving machine complete with stand.  The head is a Fortuna Model G, serial number 16098.  I know nothing about the machine, except that it is currently non-operable because the round leather (speed?) belt on the right-side multi-pulleys is broken.  The motor belt is good.  It had been used locally in a home wallet-making business that shut down due to health a few years ago.  

A small box of spare parts and tools is included.  I know so little about this type of machine that I’m not sure if the parts are any good, or if they even go with this machine.  Please see the parts photo.

The stand is a converted recent K-leg with what appears to be a modified green serger plywood and Formica top, 1-phase 2850/3450rpm 120V 1/2hp clutch motor, and home-built flashing waste discharge chute under the left side.  A home-made wooden right-side belt cover is included.

The head is being stored inside in my sewing area, and the stand is being stored outside covered on my carport.

Note: The motor shown setting on the stand top in some of the photos is not part of this machine, and neither are the electric fan, light, and other clutter on the stand top.  The bad motor is off of his 31-15 sewing machine and not included in this package. (Those photos were taken at the seller’s location.)

Price is $300 for all as-is un-tested, pickup only at my home in Frederick Oklahoma by appointment, no shipping.  (Frederick is approximately 29 miles north of Vernon Texas, 20 miles from US Hwy 287, and approximately 67 miles NW of Wichita Falls Texas.)

Please post questions to this thread.
