    Hello knoba, looks like you've been busy! I had some sort of buffer in mind when I saw the title. Am not sure how this works...

    Hey, DIYer!

    Hope you're well!

    After cutting a piece of leather it has angular edges. This can be undesirable in items like belts. Running an edge beveller will add a nice chamfer, but the burnisher can then run repeatedly down the edge, in a suitably sized groove, to round over the edge and take off any whisps that remain.
