Hand Press Setter Machine for Leatherwork

A hand press is a machine that sets snaps, rivets, eyelets, and grommets. While there are manual methods where these hardware types can be applied by hand with some striking force, a mechanized process can lead to much easier, faster application of these hardware pieces.

The hand press machine operates by having a fixed range of motion. It is mechanically connected to a lever arm, that when pressed down by hand, transfers the force through the machine and into the hardware being set (snaps, rivets, grommets, etc.). A hand press can help when you’re doing higher volume production or seek to save time and energy over manually setting hardware by striking with hammers, mauls, or mallets.
