It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's...a Hydraulic Clicker?

Leather Cutting Clicker

The elves in the workshop were busy last weekend with the annual maintenance of our hydraulic clicker, which we use to cut out all the materials for our shoes. We recently discovered an oil leak under the clicker and had to lift the machine (all one tons of it!!) to install a drip pan underneath.

Leather Cutting Clicker in Air

Having the clicker dangling two feet in the air from a strap is very strange for us because it's so large and one of the most important machines in our shop.

The drip pan was successfully installed and no fingers were smashed in the process!
