Step 3: Punch Holes

Picture of Punch Holes

The groover is used to make a groove that follows the edge of the leather. It can be set to make a groove at whatever distance from the edge that you need. This ensures that the stitches are straight, because wonky stitches look messy.

The pricking irons then punch holes that follow the grooves. Easy enough, eh?
