  2. Hi Forester, have a look at Abbey England site, they seem to have a good range of threads for leather. Alternatively ring them and have a talk, ive been in there twice now and really friendly people to talk to and ask questions.

  6. Hi , sorry if I am hijacking. Eric could you tell me if a squirrel motor would be suitable for a sewing machine. I had a sparky tell me this type of motor would work but I don't think he understood the torque/ speed aspect of sewing machines. could one of these type motors be made to work ok. thanks;
  7. Ok . thanks again mate.
  8. Thanks mate, looks like I may have to get one. I didn't notice in their add any mention of extra for the needle positioner. Was your price about A$ much difference does the smaller pulley make or is it worth while to stay with the original. I think the add said 90 mm. . Peter.
