Ladies and Gentleman,  i feel i have done the impossible.  I have manged to stop up the blade on my stitch groover... Yes I am extremely new to leather craft.  Like a blind man in a lake I'm just swimming until i figure it out lol.  If yall have anyway to help Id appreciate it. New blade is in the mail,  just would like to keep going till it gets here. Thanks!

Take a needle and poke it . . . it's a straight thru hole . . . all you need to do is clean it out.

May God bless,

Dwight

Yes, poke it through from the blade end back out the top and be careful not to damage the blade edge.

Hold it in a flame briefly (match or lighter), the little leather plug will crawl out like a worm.

It helps to use light machine oil to lubricate, wipe well so you don't stain the leather. You now know to clear the hole immediately!
