BG Table-Top Hand Crank Leather Splitter & Skiving Machine
Working area: 6" inch blade
Leather Thickness: Accommodates 3oz - 15oz leather
This hand powered splitting machine is incredibly 'powerful' in the sense that it performs precise skives with ease, and allows leather shops to make the step from purely manual hand skiving to professional and efficient skiving at scale.
Manual 'pull' skivers and small hand tools can be quite difficult to manage splitting consistency. And motor powered splitters can be difficult to control splitting length. This machine solves both of those issues. With a gear driven bottom feeder and hand crank handle you can cut down very thick sole leather and belt straps, all while managing total length of skive. You also have the ability to go forward and reverse.
The top adjustable height dial allows you to adjust the skiving thickness to exact and level weight, with a 1-7mm etched ruler for guidance. There are two lubrication points at the top with easy access.
These blades are hand sharpened by hollow grinding making the blades razor sharp. They are then heat treated to a Rockwell hardness of Rc 65-68 which insures that the machine will hold an edge over many hours of use.
