  1. Thanks again, Costabulary! great help, and I do read German well enough to understand most of this text. And I'm sure this will be helpful to a lot of members. Arvid
  2. Gentlemen, some time ago I got some good advice on selecting a motor for my Claes 214-1, an Adler 108-5 clone. (This thread: http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=59603&hl= ) . For anyone interested, I ended up buying a Jack KJ561A , and a speed reducer from Sieck . The speed reducer came to a very good price with European shipping, but unfortunately with a very long delivery time, still waiting. In the meantime I am trying to learn a bit more about the machine, as I know very little about sewing machines. This machine came with six different feet. The foot on the left in the picture was attached when I got it, and it was used by a sail maker. I would be very grateful for advise about the intended use of the different feet, and also for the different guides. Thanks, Arvid
  3. A very good price, I think. 50+(4x1.5)+20=130 mm, so with a little protruding space, let's say 160 mm shaft. Sounds good? Btw, I will order the Jack 750W motor tomorrow.
  4. With a total with of 50mm for the reducer pulleys there should be no problem. There are no set screws for the leg hole. If your fabricator can deliver shaft and adjusting rings it would be the most convenient solution for me, I may have problems with finding these parts her in my town. I have been looking at this speed reducer: http://shop.raphaelsewing.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=354 With shipping and taxes it probably will cost me about €150, just to suggest a cost limit for me for such a project. Thanks again, Arvid
  5. Your video are very convincing, and I am very near to go for a Jack 1 hp servo with a reducer. Would be very interesting to hear a ball park price and fabrication time for your speed reducer, very generous of you to offer your help. My table have the hole for the treadle wheel, and I believe that it is 15mm when some excess paint is removed. . The ting is that my table is constructed so as the supporting part between the legs (don't know what this is called in English) will be an obstruction if the distance from the leg to the far side of the wheel is more than 80 mm for a 150 mm wheel, or more than 50 mm for a 200 mm wheel. (Hope this make sense), Do you think this will be a problem? Thanks again, Arvid
  6. Hi Constabulary, Very instructive video, and fine set up. I would like to avoid a speed reducer, both for the cost (it will probably be very expensive to have one made here in Norway, if I even could find someone to do it) and the construction of the table stand may be a problem when it comes to fitting it. You saying that the motor runs as low as 200rpm makes it more attractive, but if I still have to buy a speed reducer and a new table stand ... Need to think about that one. Thanks anyway, Arvid
  7. Hi Constabulary, I have looked at this motor, and it looks nice. I particularly like that the speed control don't sit on the motor. I also like your set up, But I have been in contact with College Sewing, and they say that the slowest speed for this motor is 500 rpm. I want to be able to run as slow as 50/60 stitches per minute, and I am afraid that will be difficult with this motor. Anyway, thanks for your input. Arvid
  8. ...eeh, sorry for the double posting, don't know what happened, and don't see how I can delete it Arvid
  9. Gentlemen, I recently bought a Claes 214-1 heavy duty machine, which is an Adler 105-8 clone. (Pictures attached). It was set up as a treadle machine, but I want to get a motor for it. I have read a few threads in this forum about motors, and also studied a few suppliers web sites, but I am still somewhat confused about the right choice of motor for this machine. I would like to be able to sew up to 10-12 mm thick leather, and, as I mostly have been hand sewing up to now and have little experience with machine sewing, I need very good control i.e. slow speed. I realise that I will need a servo motor, but I am not sure of how much power I will need, or how low the lowest RPM needs to be. The hand wheel pulley of this machine is 150 mm (6 in). I live in Norway, and the motor must be 220/240 V. I have been looking at this two motors: https://www.universalsewing.com/tek9.asp?pg=products&specific=1`302351&usscriteria=448.101&usssearchby=header and http://www.leathermachineco.com/product/brushless-digital-d-c-servo-motor/ but I am not dure if the fist one is slow enough or if the second one is strong enough. I will be grateful for any advice and suggestions. Thanks, Arvid

  11. Thanks Bob, I will have to think about this.
  12. Thanks for the link . I don't know anything about leather sewing machines, but are looking for a machine to sew belts, wallets and such as a hobbyist. I can't read from the parts list if this machine has needle feed, which I understand is essential. The seller asks about $2000 for it, with a 6 y old 3HP clutch motor. A bit more than I was expecting to use, but maybe a fair price? Picture from the seller: Thanks,
  13. Gentlemen, Searching the forum I have found a lot of posts about Singer 7 series machines, particularly the 7-31 and 7-34 models. But no mentioning of the 7-30. Anybody knows the particulars of this model? Thank you
  14. Wizcrafts, thank you for shearing your knowledge! I believe that this is not the right machine for me, then. I will send your info to the seller, a good thing for everybody if he knows what he is selling . There is also a Pfaff 483 flat bed mahine for sale here, which probalby will suit my needs better? This one is used and at twice the price, so I'll have to think about it ... Thank again.
