    Both of mine were found at the local swap meet/flea market. They were both rusty in a pile of other rusty tools. They were $5 each Cleaned up they seem to sell for around $30-50, but I don't sell mine

    I also have a set of singer and bernard treadle belt pliers and I prefer the Bernard over the Singer just another in my IMO.

    the main reason I like the Bernard better is that it cuts and punches with one step. No need to "align" the holes each time.

    Okay, I want one. I don't need it because I only have 1 treadle machine.... but they are really cute and you might need one at some point. So, I'm going to start looking........

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Hmm! Neither of the two pairs of Barnard’s that I have (5” & 6”) include that feature. Sounds like a good idea.

    That's cool! I'm going to have to keep an eye out for one of those.
