  1. Cardboard boxes are free. I use them all the time to dye on. One side for black other side for the rest of the colors.
  2. Search line art wolf and the same for the eagle. You should be able to find something.
  3. I would think whoever set it up of checked that. To get the belt off loosen the speed reducer and maybe the motor. You will be able to raise them a little and get the belt off.
  4. I would just make another set of fenders. And keep them to use when you get another saddle cause you will sale or trade the one you have now i bet. In the past I had a couple of saddles that the fenders had been shorten on and NOBODY wanted to buy them ! Lost money on everyone of those saddles.
  5. Get ready to complain some cause priority mail prices went up today. Guess you need to move closer to the supplier and yea I have to order just about everything. Or start your own supply company and get everything at wholesale prices. Five hundred thousand ought to get ya started.
  6. I think you should back both top tensions, back off and start over adjusting the tension. If you have another color thread i would use that ( some people have a lot of trouble with black thread ) when i got my machine i was told to set the tension for the lightest things i would be sewing and that it should be good to go on anything else. That advice has worked pretty good for the last 20 plus years. When i go from 277 to 138 i do have to tighten the top tension just a little. Most of the time when i'm sewing both the top tension and the side tension have maybe one turn. On the bobbin tension i just do it by feel. But i have read on here that some folks use a weight gauge like what you use to weigh a fish with and set the bobbin tension at one pound pull.
  7. The phone number comes back to California PA. I guess they picked the numbers out of thin air.
  8. If you follow the curves. Pretty quick your curve is gonna be a sharp point or sharper than you want to cut around. Then you'll have to straighten the piece by cutting the points off. A guy I worked for years ago tried that and ruined a side of leather.
  9. Try signing in to PayPal and look at your account/sent payments and see if you can cancel it there. It maybe different now but I have done that in the past.
  10. I'm pretty sure you can cancel the payment from your end especially if it hasn't been claimed without waiting 30 days.
  11. What is cutesy, a place to sell things ?
  12. Bob at Toledo sewing machine.
  13. I use a 22 ounce for stamping and a one pound for tooling. But anything is better than the yellow poly mallet.
  14. Yes it's a shoe tool.That's what i used one for and that's what i was told it is used for. Like if you need to put a nail in a boot heel or any hard to get at spot.
  15. Pull the knob part back, drop a nail / lace tack in the short tube and drive the nail with the knob part in a hard to get at spot like inside a boot.
