Super Cobbler was established in 1994 at Lutwyche City Shopping Centre in Brisbane and serviced the local and greater community.
I started in the industry in 1985 by joining Mr Minit and served in various kiosks around Brisbane for about 5 years, during that time I was taught basic Lock smithing and had rigorous training in key blank identification, cutting keys by hand and re keying locks.
I recieved a Mr Minit Master Engraving certificate for hand engraving.
After learning basic quick shoe repair, not to a high standard, I was one of a few singled out to help launch a sister company called Cavallo Nero Shoe repair. We were given a training course on how to repair leather goods to a much improved standard, placed into a shop and expected to enhance our knowledge by completely pulling apart the articles repairing the damage and reconstructing them.
I left the now defunct company after 5 years to become Super Cobbler.
I received the Australian Footwear Repairers Association Certificate 4 based on prior learning about 10 years ago.
I have a great reputation as a quality repairer and manufacturer of leather goods, all up I have 30 years experience and have repaired many impossible looking articles and made numerous and varied pieces, Leather gun holsters & cases, guitar straps, sling shots, knife pouches, utility belts etc.
Watch repair is the latest addition to my expanding knowledge base, I’ve done a course in basic watch repair and work in conjunction with a wholesale repairer, I learn and pick up Knowledge and self teach very easily. Over the last 4 years I have gone from battery changing to replacing movements, replacing glass, repairing bands, metal and leather.
