Our Mission Statement: To assist in the endeavor to learn the art of leather carving. The art of leather carving can be tedious and often painful experience. With that in mind the Power mallet was created to alleviate the aches and pains; such as hand cramping and shoulder pain. In most cases it takes years to control the swivel knife and the hand mallet enough to produce good results. Cutting with the swivel knife by hand requires strength that for some people it takes too long to develop. It also requires skill and coordination to use the hand mallet effectively. This too takes time. The Power Mallet has eliminated most of the aches and pains associated with carving leather. It does all the tedious work, so that you can enjoy drawing your flowers and scrolls deeply into the leather. The learning curve is greatly reduced, so you can now spend you limited time producing amazing projects instead of painfully striving to eliminate tool marks and to strike a tool accurately. The knife lets the tool do the cutting and you follow your pre drawn pattern. You use your own tooling tools in the Power Mallet. Your tooling will be easier and done more effectively than you could ever do in the traditional way; in a fraction of the time without discomfort. If you are trying to earn money or make a living tooling leather; it is a hard task to accomplish, if you are doing it the traditional way. With the Power Mallet, it has made the task much more fun and some of our customers have reported as much as 90 percent faster on some applications. This makes it much more feasible to make money at your leather carving. It also preserves your body so that you can continue your leather carving for years to come without the physical wear and tear that is normally associated with the art. Please watch our promo video at www.powermallet.com Thank you for taking the time and hope to be able to help you in your leather carving endeavor.

Here's a great testimony from Jay Heinrich! Jay Heinrich Today at 1:14pm Approximately 8 months ago I thought my leather working and crafting days were over because of some serious physical issues with my hands and shoulder from the wear and tear of leather and life. I saw Power Mallet at the Prescott leather show and talked with Joe Maxwell about the device just one day removed from surgery on my wrists/hands. I was able to use the device in demo even with the pain and lack of mobility from the surgery. I waited several weeks, until I got the docs OK, and then ordered a unit after giving it careful thought. I am so glad I did! I use the unit with no pain now in the wrists or shoulder and my leather work goes on better than ever. The unit and process takes a little getting used to but I find my results very good (in my judgment) and find no lack of detail when used on intricate designs. I suppose one could say the “cutting” tool is not as precise as a swivel knife but I just use a swivel knife on those parts of a project that require extreme precision. Beveling, pear shading, backgrounding, etc. are all a snap. Sure there are times when I have to use a regular mallet and small tool in very tight quarters but that is few and far between. With the Power Mallet I find my time on a given piece reduced by 50% if not more. If you have medical issues or simply want to improve output I would highly recommend the Power Mallet!
