ESTO brand Leather & Plasitic trimmer

Recommended Posts

I have acquired two differenct model of ESTO leather and plastic trimmers.  I haven't found any information on the web on ESTO products.

Thje trimmers need new Cutter (top) blades., while the scorer (bottom) is OK.  

Having cleaned out many years of grime and dirt, one cuts 6mm heal material real well, the other is way to worn.

Does anyone know any about ESTO gear and are spare parts available?

I will up load some photos shortly.

Once cleaned and oiled the basic trimmer 6mm hard heal material quite wheel.  I don't have any soft rubbery sole material to try out.

The cutter should be 1 to 1.5mm bigger.

The good news is the shop I acquired has two others that work reasonably well, so if I can't buy repacement blades, I will get 4 made up.  All the drive wheels ( lower cogs) are in good condition.

I can produce Cad files to send to a CNC lathe

Wow, nice find.

I know nothing about them, but been looking for years around here and never seen anything like that.

Landis still sell these, but they don't post the cutter details. Landis cutter blades

I wonder if a Landis 5in1 owner could make some measurements and take some photos.  

My unit screws of using 1/2-20 UNF left hand thread.

Esto machines were made in a suburb of Sydney by a Migrant from Estonia, he migrated to Australia just after the Second World War......so being

from Estonia....hence the name of his machines ESTO.

AH HA I never knew that. I still have several of the Esto machines myself including the master finishing machines that I use every day nearly. I think the trimmer in the above picture is called a rough rounder from memory. I have one of those as well and thankfully in a bit better condition. Thanks for sharing.

Brookies was no help, so I ended up getting some made.  They work a real treat.

I realised I hadn't wrapped this up with a final post.

I had two cutter styles made course for thick leather and soles and fine for sole overlay.

Initially the majority of our work was sole overlays so I installed the fine cutter.  I haven't needed to try the course cutter yet, as the fine cutter goes so well.

Thank you, haven't been on here for a while, so a bit late with the reply.

Hey guys,

Just wondering how much an esto trimmer and skiver is worth. I've got one that looks very much like the one in previous posts but I have no use for it.

Just wondering what sort of price I should expect for it?

Cheers
