  1. I bought one about a month or so back( my second one) and still the same with the 50 mm pulley. Just ask for Aussie plug and they give you a convertor plug. There is a guy selling servo motors on facebook in Australian leathercrafters forum for 300. could be a better bet as covered by Aussie warranty.

  12. Chinese Servo Motor.

    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.
