  1. Zig Zag Machine Advice

    Thanks again Guys for all the Good information. It really helps. Keep it coming !-------Bill
  2. Zig Zag Machine Advice

    Thanks for your input on that machine. It's nice to know it would possibly be reliable. Maybe we should have a little wider zig-zag for what we will be doing...??? Anyone else have an opinion ? ----------Bill
  3. Zig Zag Machine Advice

    Me Again. A friend has a Pfaff 138-6. Anyone have experience with that machine? Thanks-------------Bill
  4. Zig Zag Machine Advice

    Wow Guys ! Thanks for all the info. Now I have to get busy and start looking in my area and see if there is anything available around here. I didn't even know model numbers of zig zag machines before. Thanks for the help. ------Bill
  5. Zig Zag Machine Advice

    Thanks for the input. I'll check out the video and look around to see if any are available. ---------Bill
  6. We end up with all these scraps of Hair-on cowhide from our Upholstery Shop. We have seen table runners and rugs made from these scraps zig-zaged together. Sooooo, what would be a good (affordable) zig-zag machine to buy for this job. We would be sewing through no more than 2 layers of 5/6 oz. hair-on cowhide. Probably 69 or 92 thread...??? Any ideas or thoughts ??? Thanks---------Bill
  7. Hello,

    Do you still have these tools?

    If so I'm interested in buying them.

  8. Make me an offer, or trade me something that I can use for Saddle and Harness work.
  9. Oh come on guys, we have more than Sturgis and Fishing. There are Pheasants,corn on the cob, really good Beef, Forestburg watermelons, and don't forget Mt Rushmore !! Anyway, thanks for the info, I didn't mean to sound demanding, Sorry if I did. Anybody need some boot repair tools ?
  10. Exactly! If I knew how to use them, maybe they would be useful for general leather work. Is there a tutorial or something on this web site that would show me how they are used ? Or would someone like to drive to So. Dak. and show me ? Art called that one tool a float. What the heck does it do ?----------Thanks
  11. So, sounds like they are for shoe/boot work ??
  12. I have these tools I bought at an auction a while back. I need help identifying what their use is. I do mainly saddle and harness work, so if they are for shoe/boot work, they are for sale or trade. I haven't found a use for them yet but Maybe if I knew what they were for, who knows ??? That awl haft is solid iron. Why would you need a haft made of iron ?? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  13. I have never seen one with an adjustable seat like that. Cool ! I would clean it up, tighten it up, Put on a new weathered strap, and use it. But that's just me.-----------Bill
  14. Adler 467

    Anyone have an opinion on an Adler 467 machine ??? Good or bad, just looking for an opinion. We would use it for Chaps, Chinks, tack and repair work. Thanks
