The world's best distressing-ruffer-wire-brush

This sole ruffer is the standard in all distressing workshops as the scraping surface is curved and can therefore be guided much better. It is perfectly suited for roughening up or destroying hard fabrics or leather.
This abrasive tool is originally a shoemaking tool and is used for roughening adhesive surfaces or chrome leather soles in ballroom dancing. 
It's a very durable product as used scraping belts can simply be replaced. 

Fits well in your hand - easy use

This hand ruffer-shredder is extremely useful, fits well in your hand and the scraping belt (the rubber mat with the wire rows) can be replaced if necessary.
We stock spare scraping belts here in the PATIN-A shop.

Article details:

• Length: approx. 20cm
• Material handle: wood (lacquered)
• Material belt fastener: metal
• Trimmings: replaceable scraping belt with hardened steel wires (18 rows)

Selling unit:  1 piece (steel wire brush including scraper)

Super Werkzeug

Dieser Lederaufrauer ist sehr gut. Ich nutze ihn sehr oft und finde es klasse, dass es Ersatzkratzen gibt. So hat man ein hervorragendes Werkzeug, welches nicht nach kurzer Zeit entsorgt werden muss.

Dieses Werkzeug ist Gold wert! Ich nutze es ständig für meine Arbeiten an Kostümen. Auch für die Bearbeitung an festen Schuhen ist der Aufrauer sehr gut. 10 Sterne von mir für dieses perfekte und hochwertige Werkzeug

Technical Support

We bought Sole Ruffer-because it is a very good product, just what we where looking for. We use them to manually abrade rubber surface before we glue it. The shipping and everything was just right.

Das BESTE Patinierwerkzeug!!!

Wer kennt diesen Aufrauer nicht? Er hat mir schon so oft geholfen, wenn ich Leder oder Stoffe bearbeiten mußte. Ich liebe dieses kleine Gerät und kann es nur jedem dringend ans Herz legen! Liegt gut in der Hand und ist sehr leicht. Das elastische Kratzenband kann man ganz leicht auswechseln (kauft Euch unbedingt eine Ersatzkratzenband dazu - Ihr werdet es brauchen, da ihr das Teil nicht mehr ans den Händen legt ;-) ) Das kleine Teil gehört unbedingt in Eure Arbeitstasche.
