  1. On a factory Cobra with the standard needle plate. The needle foot out side to edge of standard plate is almost 5/16". The shuttle cover could push this needed distance farther depending what the project is. Also this if you can use the inside presser foot. Good luck Floyd
  2. Great question especially because i wondered the same, if issue is on a start or ending. Good day there Floyd
  3. Outstanding instruction video! Uwe, thanks again for your help. Good day Floyd
  4. I bet if we ask on that machine Cory posted we would think 4K was a sale for some other machines. I meant to and forgot to ask if that sewing room there had the machines in the floor / lowered as some sail shops. Interesting for sure! good day Floyd ps. Have to check on the 9204ZT Hightex, heck this one does the 4 step
  5. Wow thats a beast, and enough room for sure. i guess bigger machines with bigger jobs. That is some canvas to move around, ya start folding or piling that to move around and you got some weight. I can see that puller being a life saver along with a requirement no doubt. Thanks for sharing the pic Floyd
  6. Speaking off the cuff here! But old school and physical I totally understand and agree with the eps comments. And gladly followup with the one setup with my Mitsubishi clutch motor is king by far over two other newer ones on servos,( why i dont know ). I noticed awhile back before i scored a used Cobra. The super duty stand being used by our friends in Australia and also commented before that this is in my book a Real nice stand. It would be a great oppurtunity to take a trip and check them out first hand. Good day Floyd
  7. I heard of this from etsy gossip/talk last fall for their future plans. Off site chatter of course. I just suspected they were trying to organize purchases a bit better for accountability (after a scenario). It maybe noticed many products are actually from elsewhere and though purchased in a etsy store may have a bank charge location "only" as far as a Chinese interchange bank. So when your U.S. bank security checks that trans routing for your purchase it really slooows at that trans junction point. So maybe in all this etsy is trying to better control tranactions. At least those that are not normally, or properly completed, yet "charged for" when they should be auto cancelled. Just remember to not leave a cart with items, rather "empty it/remove items" if deciding to rush to log off especially if ccard info was given. ( or simply buy the stuff of course ) Good day Edit: i mean when items were never delivered, and with no accountable tracking, emails etc.
  8. If he was headed through the midwest im sure we could come up with something. I really have enough to work with now. Sheeeesh sometimes think i need to be buffulo bill and run two at once "somehow" but quickly realize reality. Thanks for the great tip Floyd
  9. Have you found another replacement supplier for that color nylon. I had white 277 nylon from another company that didn't work out similarly so went with poly and havent looked back. Im sure many said the same with the cotton to nylon revolution. I talked to Coats here in the states but as a small quantity I needed they had gave me a few companies for these amounts. Even these companies wanted to sell a box "really". I often thought like a lot of things if i just order a pallet load from coats it would be easy and just start puttin a sticker on it. As many others Part of learning all the conections i suppose and working the field. I have enough to do now so dont need the added headaches. Have a good weekend everyone!
  10. Possibly in your test scenario ? In the video on your channel i cannot see the top thread tensioner being used. And again maybe the testing or can you explain any tips with this setup.
  11. Welcome ! Your in the right place. have a good day Floyd
  12. Sure looks like a great find. With the name recognition and general respect I give them its an excellent build. It may have model tricks of its own. So hopefully some other owners can jump in the conversation for a buyer on a mission good day Floyd
  13. Uwe Hey thanks! for the video, it sure gives another perspective to look through. Besides i think to see that well the use of my hi-powr cheater glasses need found "again" As usual great work there Floyd
  14. Here is a place I went with though there are some others. It seemed pretty tough finding any coats brand in small quantites. Superior had good reviews and good service. I use 277 and not enough yet to make a big discussion but will stand up for them now. Good day there Floyd https://www.superiorthreads.com/shop/category/thread/bonded-polyester/?thickness=%23207
  15. It may be easier if the thin leather you consider is tough, like one 1/8" leather. Not knowing what your projects are is a bit tougher. But anyway going from 1/2" or three quarter inch directly to some garmet or thin chap is going to take some machine adjustments. I put in 3/4 because half inch even requires thicker thread in leather than say thin outdoor garmet. A point to consider is if the thin stuff is using the big threads like 277, 346, and up. Here is where some of the saddle Pros could help in my opinion if indeed these are the shop focus. Good day there Floyd
