CB801 CowBoy Leather Skiver

So I decided that the number one machine that would help me get thru project development faster had to be a bell knife skiver.
The CB801 is a Chinese version of apparently the only design on earth that anyone ever developed for skiving. 
It has a nice sound to it and 1st runs are very promising.

These machines are not for the "UN-mechanically" inclined; you will have a learning curve if you have never used one.

It is a technical machine that requires practice, practice, practice.

Adjusting the presser foot has two dimensions

Adjusting the drive wheel has two or three

Adusting the the bell knife has one

Grinding the bell knife is a challenge
