Any of you guys have one of these? Price is outdated, I found them for $160 on eBay. Amazon reviews are up and down, but most seem to bitch about the rough castings and the packing grease. Castings can be filed smooth and grease is fact of life. One of the Amazon reviews by a Dale Pruitt seems to give the best straight shooting review. https://www.amazon.com/FISTERS-Mach...iews&pageNumber=1#reviews-filter-bar

I don't know about that one, the leather work I do consists of 3 layers of heavy leather, don't think that machine would do it, other than a saddle shop machine (big bucks) the one I got is the tandy machine

If I could afford it, I'd have one of these. I just don't do the number of sheaths to justify the cost.

I'll keep stitching them by hand. Nothing even close to automated in my process. It is slow, but I think the end result is better.
