SuitablE FOR PLAIN LEATHER STRAPS WITHOUT INSERTS, THIS TOOL PROVIDES FITTING ASSISTANCE, REDUCING THE FORCE REQUIRED AND THE RISKS OF SCRATCHING.
This product is highly versatile, with 3 sets of blades for different bar diameters, its height-adjustable table and limit stops.
Hence you can fit straps effortlessly, by compressing the bar and leather simultaneously.
The leather manufacture tolerance sometimes means that the horn gap is sometimes narrower than the width of the strap. So you need to compress the leather to be able to fit it. This operation requires a high degree of physical force and dexterity. This can be complicated in mass production.
Our assistance tool makes this an effortless operation, without needing to touch the case middle horns.
· 3 sets of blades: Ø 0.8 / 0.9 / 1.0
· Adjustable opening stop
· Adjustable closing stop
· Stop blocks can be custom made
(dedicated to your model, so no further tool adjustments required)
When first fitting the strap, remove the bar.
Mount the set of blades corresponding to the bar diameter.
Present the bar on its own between the blades, and adjust the opening stop so that the bar cannot drop out
Compress the bar by screwing in the handle to its limit stop. Adjust the closing stop so that the bar cannot be forced beyond its limit.
The tool is now set for mass production.
Place the bar on the leather, and present the first strand on the device.
Clamp it to the closing stop.
Adjust the table height so that the bar hole in the case middle is at the same height as the bar.
Move the case middle forward, and try to engage the bar in the right-hand hole, and then turn the case middle as far as the left-hand hole.
Make sure that you are correctly aligned on the second hole.
Unscrew the handle slightly. The bar should engage in the second hole.
Lift up the strap + case middle assembly slightly, with a clean action.
Apply the same procedure to the second strand.
