  1. What about the Consew 226? Is a used one worth $700? http://dayton.craigslist.org/for/5196812308.html
  2. I found a local dealer that sells Juki, Consew, and Chandler machines. Other than being a flatbed machine would a chandler 406rb be able to do most everything other than gussets? I'd like my first machine to be as versatile as possible. http://www.industrialsew-tech.com/
  3. Would a cowboy 3200 be a better choice at over twice the cost? A lot of my wallets are under 1/4" thick.
  4. Thanks for the advice, is the timing belt the belt on the right side of the machine? Can I run it with 207 thread?
  5. I found a used Chandler 67 GK373 on craigslist for $600 and I was wondering if this would be worth my time without having to sink a lot of extra money into it. It looks like it has a clutch motor so I would probably want to put a servo motor on it which is an extra $150. I mostly sew wallets but I may get into belts and bags once I get a machine, will this be adequate for the task? Thanks for any help.
  6. Haha, that's a good security feature!
  7. I made a quick little card wallet for my coworker as a gag gift. I drew a simplified version of his face for the front and one of his many catch phrases on the reverse.
  8. Thanks! Fiebings pro oil dye black on the border, angelus acrylic paint for the hibiscus and letters, 2 coats of angelus satin acrylic finisher for the resist and then black angelus acrylic antique over everything with another coat of the finisher on top. I did use some brown dye to fill in the background area of the flower and letters but would probably do black next time.
  9. Haha, thanks. I normally don't have any cash, it's birthday money I haven't decided what to spend on yet.
  10. Finally made a wallet for myself, still used it as a chance to try out a new interior design. It has 3 card pockets and a big cash pocket in the back. When I use this style again I'll probably make it a little wider and somehow expand the cash pocket so it can stretch a little more. At the moment I have it pretty stuffed.
  11. If Shane hasn't purchased it I may be interested as well.
  12. I overbooked myself as well, just sent out the last three wallets today. Now I have some stuff to make for friends. Can't wait for the holidays to be over, I could use a break!
  13. I use a liquid latex I bought at Hobby Lobby that works really well, as long as I do 2-3 coats. I try to cover any tooling cuts so it doesn't bleed under and then go back with a paintbrush. http://www.amazon.com/Woodland-Scenics-Latex-Rubber-16oz/dp/B000BLI6TA
  14. I was just considering the same machine, you're happy with it? You don't think it would be worth stepping up to the 3500? Also what sort of accessories came with it?
  15. A brand new Tippmann is on sale for $1200 right now, how much could I get a 441 clone for? Would that be like a Cowboy CB3500?
