  3. Cobra Class 4 Or ?

    I have a small leather shop (partime) in South Texas and I'm in the market for a new sewing machine. I've been using a Ferdco Baby bull for about 12 years, there is nothing wrong with the machine or the stitch in fact it stitches really good. The only thing that I don't like is it's a pressure foot machine, hates to climb and leaves a heck of a line on the top from the pressure foot. I dont do very heavy stitching but probably will someday, the thinnest I sew would be my bifold wallets. They are 5/6 oz lined with 2/3 oz veg tanned at it's thinnest, the thickest would be my ranger belts which are 8/9 oz lined with 2/3 oz and my billets are cut from 10/11 oz. If anyone does about the same work I do and has a Cobra Class 4 or any other machine please share your thoughts. Thanks
  4. Breaking Thread

    Evening Charlie, I have a Ferdco baby bull and had this problem about 10 years ago. It ended up being a timing problem. What was cutting the thread in my case was the shuttle spring being in slightly the wrong postition during the sewing process. I called Ferdco and they walked me through the fix over the telephone.
  5. Bevelers

    I recently purchased a beveler from the Y-Knot lace company, I ordered the small beveler but am convinced I was shipped the large one. I spoke with a lady at the company and she said if the vertical (upright backside) of the beveler measured less than three inches than I was shipped the small one. Mine measured exactly 3 inches. ???????????? By looking at the picture, according to the mounting hole positions it appears that I was shipped the large beveler. I edge braid knife sheaths and it is difficult to bevel a 1/8 inch or so piece. Hate to ask this but could somone measure the length of their beveler if you have the same kind of beveler. Thanks.
