Please note, in my recent ebay listings there is a new selling format, which is Sell with fixed price "buy it now" but accept offers for consideration "submit offer" So if your interested in any of my listings that have this option, please let me know before or when you submit an offer that you are from here "The HCC", either a member, viewer or poster, and I assure you that I will give you a better price consideration "good guy and gal discount" in other words where I may only accept $100.00 as the lowest offer, if you tell me your from here, $80.00 will probably work! Feels right!
Regards,
Bob
Dear Admin, Thank You for this format to let folk know, and your kind words!

I'm puting up some excess stock from purchasing some equipment back in March. I don't know how much interest you will have it, but there will be lots of "Spenco" gel insoles, heel cups and insole overlays. Also "Sof-Sol brand," a couple of "P.Q" items and some various shoe care items (a whole lot of jars of Meltonian".

Maybe more useful are some fairly random selections of Vibram soles.

E-mail me if you are interested in the specifics before I post them on E-bay:

riotgeer@ameritech.net

Thanks,
Erick

I have just listed a Tippmann pneumatic clicker on ebay. I used this machine for about 1 year in my shop, and it performed flawlessly. It would have been my preference to have a hydraulic clicker, but I worked in a shop with a wooden floor, so I was weight restricted. This machine has about a 2 square foot cutting surface, and includes a nicely constructed new table. It does require a 100 psi compressor to operate.

Please feel free to contact me by email or phone if you have questions or wonder how this machine might work for you. The auction ends September 3, about 8pm Pacific time. The machine is located in Reno, Nevada, but arrangements can be made for other locations, including delivery to some Oregon, Washington and Idaho locations.

You can see it at: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=003&item=130021302710&rd=1&sspa gename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&rd=1

Thanks for looking,

Next...

Selling a Singer zig zag machine (107W). Find it at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=003&item=130021406851&rd=1&sspa gename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&rd=1

I used it very little, initially getting it to sew the backseam of a laceup boot together, as with many work boots. It worked fine for the operation.

Ends September 3, about 8pm pacific.

Email me directly at matt@newberryinspections.com

Thanks,

Matt

There are two interesting tools on Ebay right now...one is a size stick, maybe somewhat older than the one I just bought and French (if that makes any difference.

item # 250151939675

And a pair of bulldog pincers...can't really tell the condition of the teeth, ending soon!

item # 230156798961

These are some of the rarer tools that appear on Ebay...

Michael,

Wasn't it you that I was talking to in the shop? I looked hard at the one you just bought. It seems in great shape. The guard is there...not worn down to nothing by some over-zealous "tool restorer"...and, well, it's just in great condition, as far as I can tell.

I thought about buying it but I have two. And while it is a good price to you, if I had bought it I would have had to mark it up.

So...congratulations. Glad you got it...glad someone who will use it got it.

Yes that was me, thanks for the info about them. I agree it looks to be in great shape and a steal of a price!
It should come just in time for the next round of heels.

Since you seem to have the knack, can you keep your eyes peeled for an American channel knife for me? ;-)

I will. I haven't seen one in a while, though. Seems like they're getting rare.

For my own nomenclature clarification, is an American channel knife the same thing I call a straight channeler (Osborne #31 and whatever the other makers numbered theirs)?

DW,
I appreciate the confirmation. I was away from my copy of Salaman. Will add that term to descriptions in the future on ones I list to make them more searchable.
Thanks,
Bruce

DW:

What do you use your Star welt knife to do? I have a couple, but I generally just use the regular welt knives for trimming the welt and the top of the heel.

Thanks,
Lance

Lance,

I have three or four common welt knives, several Star Welt knives and at least one very good circular welt knife.

They all do, or can do, pretty much the same thing.

The circular welt knives were designed such that they had a "guard" and could be used close to the upper without worry. You can call them "safety welt knives."

Star Welt knives are essentially the same principle as circular welt knives but a little simpler both to adjust and to sharpen. They are easier to sharpen because the blade is flat and the cutting edge is larger. You can see that in the photos supplied for the Ebay auction.

And, more importantly, they simply work better for some things than either the common or circular welt knives.

They are called Star Welt knives because the original manufacturer moulded a 'star' shape into them. Again, You can see that in the photos.

Usage:

Bear in mind that many cowboy bootmakers do not use a heel rand or split lift. Because the welt ends just behind the ball, there is no need to extend the thickness of the welt further into the waist or towards and around the heel. As a result, the flesh side of outsole itself creates the heel seat/rhan.

Aside from doing all the things a common welt knife will do, the main usage of the Star Welt knife (for me) is to horizontally trim the rhan or heel seat close to the upper--to remove cement and to level that entire edge. A rhan file also helps when trimming is complete

Sometimes I use it perpendicularly, however to trim the heel seat closer to the upper, esp. in the waist.

Probably more than you needed or wanted to know but no other tool works so well.

And you can "filter," I'm sure...so "Smoke it, laddie, Smoke it."

Am I the only one who thinks Star welt knives and circular welt knives are all left-handed? I have several, and use them, but am right-handed, and it seems as if they would work easier if oriented the other way: you could pull the knife toward you and see what you were doing. I'd like to try a "left-handed" one sometime, if one exists.

Made a set of right and left handed welt knives, because I didn't know any better. Right hand is used most but amazing how often I reach for the left handed one.
