  1. Aerin, We should talk. My own shop is about 1.5 hours drive from you, but we could meet and I can give you some pointers. I can also put you in touch with some costumers and designers I know in LA, and I have a good friend who has a fashion degree and designs in leather and metals in Portland that I would be happy to introduce you to as well. Send me a PM so we can set up a meeting. Cheers, Logan
  2. Definitely a patch machine. Looks like a Bradbury to me
  3. Excellent site! Thank you. This is a huge help
  4. Does anyone have parts for a Singer 132k6? I bought one for a great deal on Ebay, and even after I told the seller ho to pack the head so it could be shipped safely, he let the folks at his local UPS store do it. They put it in a single walled cardboard box , no ply wood under it to support it, and they thought that styro peanuts would be enough to keep this 97 pound machine fro knocking around in its box. When I received it, the box was smashed up, and a part of the machine as protruding through a hole in the box. There were a total of 16 breaks in the cast iron,, 3 more cracks started, and the thread lube pot was broken off & its rod was bent. The foot tension screw was pretty smashed up too. If anyone has a hand/balance wheel for one of these, let me know, and let me know how much you want for it. The rod that drives the feed dog is broken in several places too, so I am looking for one of those as well. Fortunately I have a very talented machinist who can weld cast iron, does an excellent job and guarantees his work, but welding cast iron is difficult and involved, and therefore expensive, so if I can get replacement parts, that would probably be better. Speaking of which, if anyone has damaged machines out there, don't write them off, he is very skilled at welding cast iron, and I would be happy to put you in touch with him. He is in Murrieta, CA.
  5. Greetings, I have over 20 years experience in nearly all aspects of leather design and production, including 3 years doing all of the saddle and tack repair for The Thacher School in Ojai, CA while teaching leatherworking classes there. Several years in design, production and installation of extreme high end custom leather interiors for Becker Automotive Design, My work has appeared on principal actors in feature films, television, advertising, music videos and theater, My work is in several museums domestic and abroad. I am currently in Wildomar, CA but I could consider Banning for the right situation. Let's talk more. Regards, -Logan
  6. The title pretty much says it all. Looking for a deal on a Puritan 2 or 3 needle machine like the ones Redwing Shoes&Boots use.
  7. What specifically is the challenge for you with the swivel knife? if twisting and swiveling the knife is your issue, rather than regulating the pressure, you may want to look into a Tangleboss from Tanglefoot Traders in Nevada. Not sure if they are still in business. The Home page is the only page on his site that works. Take a look at http://tanglefoottraders.wix.com/tangle-foot-trading#!__tangleboss_swivelknife and/or try calling him (Tim) at 888-812-9121 I almost got one of these once on Ebay, but I wanted to try one before committing to buy. Hope this helps!
  8. Please give us a thorough description of what you mean by "rocking back" so we can analyze and address the issue
  9. That's why we need to get you out here, closeer to the 'wood!
  10. It's already sold...damn!
  11. Good news and bad news, and more good news. Bad news first: the part I was missing for this machine is no longer available and nobody out there seems to have one. Good news: I ordered in a special threading die in 5/8"-28 TPI, and I made a new one! fits the machine perfectly, with a 13/32" hole bored through it. The machine now functions perfectly! So if anyone ever needs a presser foot scre bushing for a Singer 45K, I can make it! More good news: Well... good news for me. The machine is sold!
  12. Tied Bob at Toledo Machines. He has one that is the right size, but the wrong thread pitch.
  13. Greetings folks, I recently acquired a Singer 45K25. I have just finished cleaning it up, oiling and timing it, lubed the motor and refinished the table surface. I even cobbled together a thread stand out of age-appropriate parts. It is in beautiful condition and it no sews like a champ. I am thinking about keeping it, but considering selling it too. What you you all think is an appropriate price to ask for it? It is missing one part, the presser foot tension screw. Does anyone have one that they are willing to part with? Can anybody recommend a possible supplier for one? Regards, Logan
