    In 2011 you posted that you use Swedish harmess leather.

    Where can I buy some ?

  2. Is it the part in the pic at far right that is worn and makes stitches shorten by wear?
  3. Is this the part that regulates the stitch length ?
  4. Do you have a pic of the part named bell crank?
  5. A couple of years ago I found an article on the web how to refurbish a 29 K machine, to repair a worn part that determines the stitch lenght I can´t find the article again . Anyone ? / OldTimer
  6. A Cobra class 26 is the clone of a JUKI 341, a better choice than a 335, IMHO
  7. Does anyone have the email adress to Ron´s tools ?

  9. I bought a no name JUKI 441 clone from a Chinese company, built a machine from chinese parts, i e motor , speed reducer and all. IIt was perfectly functioning from day one, no extra set ups needed, I have used it in my saddlery for more than a year, and I get a smile on my face every time I use it!
  10. Make a bottom cover, and a top cover, Glue and sew the pieces together. Then make the neck cover with a piece that reaches the center of the horn, glue the top, drill a small hole for the screw and insert the screw, then cover the neck with the wings of the neck cover.
  11. Use your straight edge as it is, scratch a line with an awl and then cut along the scratched line with a round knife. The proper way to do it!
  12. This is my edge machine. I turned a piece of Lignum Vitae to fit the motor shaft. The wood is so hard thet I even could thread the hole for a screw into the axle. / Knut
  13. Paul. get in touch with "Trox" on this forum, he is Nowegian ( Oslo) and is expert on sewing machines. He will straighten out your needs! /Knut
  14. It is definately the cast iron version , so it is a better machine than the new ones
