  3. Fortuna Skiver

    Hi Brian, yes i have thought about it and will probably end up making one. i have contacted fortuna and they have given me an address for spain so i am waiting for a reply. another company here has also given me a reply on some parts but they are now on holiday. one was the left hand door but he still has not said if it is Fav or Fortuna or Gines Juan etc... did anyone ever find a user manual or parts list for one of these fortunas??

    As dikman said.... the thread is snagged around your tension unit.
  11. Fortuna 50S

    Hi Brian, thanks for the pictures,i dont see me getting that vaccume on there as i am in a 4th floor and cant go too big here. as for now the tests i have done nothing is sticking to the roller so i will keep with this one until something goes wrong. i just touched it up with the blade and sanded it i little to even it out and seemed to have worked. although i did not take much off. today i have whipped the motor off and put it back on the pfaff so i will have to look for another motor for it. once i get it going again i will no doubt pick your brain . thanks again brian, regards jimi.

    just got the feed arm soldered and drilled out again with some new pins in and changed the belt. if anyone is wondering how its changed you just press on the clutch and loosen the screw watching out that the pin with the spring dose not shoot out. made a new plastic window and changed the guide screw as the old one was stripped. rocky? i see on your videos that your left side door has no stone cleaner?? is it not practical to have it incorporated in the door??
