About

The leather working machine was originally targeted at shoe repair, but is capable of working with many other leather projects. The following document describes the main parts of the machine: File:Universal Patcher Parts.pdf

To operate correctly several setup actions must be performed. First, the crank must be installed as shown (this should already be done - this info is in case it needs to be re-installed for maintenance)
