The Cowboy 809 leather paring device is based on a tried and true design and is simple to set up and operate. The leather is pulled between the bottom roller and a fixed blade. By raising or lowering the blade, thin cuts can be taken until the required thickness is achieved. It is an invaluable tool for quickly preparing inlays, onlays, labels and any thin leather pieces for repairs or half and quarter bindings for books. It is also an ideal machine for leather paring on bags, checkbook covers, portfolio covers, and small handbags. The leather paring machine has a large throat area to accommodate the pared leather when preparing larger pieces for full leather bindings. The top blade can also be adjusted to produce a feathered edge if required.
Based on a very popular German design, this is a popular, essential and easy to use tool for leather workers and bookbinders. It is easily adjustable for the thickness and angle desired. It allows the paring of leather to become quite easy. Edge-paring and corners are a breeze to undertake and because it is very precise, preparing onlays and inlays become easy tasks. The machine is provided with 3 roller-cylinders of different widths - 4, 8 and 12mm to make it capable of paring even narrow pieces.
