Small devices

Pressing book corners

With the book corner press PräPremo® metal corners up to 30 mm leg length may be attached easily to books, menus, organizers, note books etc. The pressure may be dosed more finely than with book corner pliers or even by applying manual pressure with pliers, hammer or vice.  The press comes in a handy case with compartments for different book corners. An assortment of book corners is already included.

For larger volumes, we offer a pneumatic version, the PräPremo Pro®. The pressing process is released by foot pedal. The PräPremo Pro® may even process book corners up to 50 mm leg length.

Paring leather

The Schärffix® is a leather-paring device used to pare leather for different products. This means e. g. to thin the edges and joints of a book case in order to be able to turn in the edges. This "thinning" or paring is done by removing some of the interior layer. After paring, the edges may easily turned in or overlapping parts may be connected or sewn together.
With a little bit of practice, the  Schärffix® is an indispensable tool for anyone working with leather. The device comes in a handy case with different paring rolls and spare blades.

Book presses

A book press is an essential device in traditional bookbinding. For the majority of jobs, however, a costly cast-iron press is not required.
We therefore offer a light book press with hardwood platens for amateur use as well as a solid steel press for professionals.
