I just got a Consew 225 for the light leather work and binding the inside of some of my lighter canvas bags. I have a binder from Tennessee Attachment for the Consew this is a great company if you are looking for any kind of attachments for your machines. The leather on the bags is English Bridle from Wickett & Craig very nice leather.

  11. Leather Jack Saps Filled With Lead Shot

    Made these Saps awhile back. I use lead shot to fill the Saps and hand sew with heavy thread. I sell these as novelty items at gun shows. I haven't had much time to hand sew lately. Busy making Waxed Canvas bags on the CB-4500.
  12. Consew 225 Need a little help.

    The problem was in the tension assembly on the Consew there was a pin that goes into the machine and another little pin in the tension assembly that needed cleaning and oiling. That is the only part of the machine I did not go through and clean and oil. Thank You for the info. The machine is working wonderfully now
