Stitching Punch With Drill Press Stand For Leathercraft

Saturday, November 5, 2016

This is a simple drill press stand mods to punch stitching holes in leather. I found a drill stand and a hand drill at a junkyard sales. I cut the head of the hand drill and put it to the stand. 

I see similar projects and studied them on the web. The common issue of this method seems to be that drill bit would be pushed back when pressing. To not that happen, I cut a piece of alminum plate to lock the drill bit for not been pushed back.

These plates are placed like this.

This hand press method is useful when you work at night without banging a hammer.
