Leatherworking Hammers and Pliers

Hammers

General leather working hammers and cobbler hammers.

Saddler Pliers - have corrugated jaws and are used to stretch or pull leather. The "anvil" on the bottom of the jaws can be used to provide leverage. 

Pad Screw Pliers - have two opposing round semi-pointed jaws. They are used to tighten some fasteners in leather strap work and also on machinery. One of the handiest uses is to change the punch tubes in rotary punches, single tube punches, and replaceable tube round drive punches. 

Pad Nut Pliers - have square jaw tips and are used for tightening nuts on some harness hardware and also on equipment. Not easily found and handy to have around.
