  1. efka variostop troubleshoot

    When I changed mine it was pretty straightforward, the servo mounted in the same holes as the efka, I needed a different belt and had to lengthen the rod to the pedal.
  2. efka variostop troubleshoot

    I would put a servo on the Pfaff and call it good, it seems everything for the Adler machines is very expensive in comparison to others.
  3. efka variostop troubleshoot

    When I bought my adler 467 it had a efka motor on it, that was 220 volt 3 phase, it worked ok for awhile running it with a phase converter but something happened with the electrionics, and it was easier to convert it to a servo than fix it, I think a 3 phase motor will run on single phase power but the electronics might do strange things, servo installation was straight forward, on my machine i lost some of the automatic features such as the thread cutter, auto backstitch, and footlift. i built a switch box to control the air footlift and reverse.

  5. Looks great, Nice ,clean and simple
  6. The loops are a bit low it was going to be floral carved and I wanted to show that off but I changed my mind on that, the bump was just the way I drew the pattern, nothing special under there. Thanks again, John

  11. Second saddle

    Thanks Randy, I knew the rear rear rigging looks a little weird, the patterns I made for the rigging work well with that tree, I should have ordered some different Dee's but I got kinda lazy, yes it's rigged 3/4, seems to work well with the short seat. Here is a picture of the first one I built, I didn't like how the rear housing looked, I used the same rigging patterns for the second one, I was happy how the rear housing turned out but I should have redesigned the rigging a bit.

  12. Second saddle

    Billy H, thank you for the input, the small seat was difficult to shape, not much material and it needed to go a lot of different places. I will try you method on my next one. Here is a better picture of this one. Thanks again
  13. Stamping Saddle Questions

    Thank you for clarifying that, I've been taught that a row of stiches around the skirts before the woolskins go to help keep the plugs from doing strange things. I would also think that a high end saddle would still have the skirts cut from the most appropriate part of the hide if they are plugged or not,but I also understand trying to get the most profit out of each job.
  14. This is the second saddle I've built, it's a 12" seat for a 10 year old girl. I'm looking for constructive criticism, I know there are a few design issues, any feedback is appreciated. Thank you

    Why aren't the plugs a good thing?
