  1. Re doing my first saddle

    The saddle is made in Uttar Pradesh, India. It is junk and should never be on a horse. I bought 4 of those cheap saddles ( used) just to see what was inside. My advise is to throw it in a garbage container. Some photos: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Old-Timers-sadelsida-213225115376738/photos/?tab=album&album_id=722074604491784

    Is it the part in the pic at far right that is worn and makes stitches shorten by wear?

    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

    A Cobra class 26 is the clone of a JUKI 341, a better choice than a 335, IMHO

  10. 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!
  11. Covering A Horn--The Old Way

    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.
  12. Slippery Straight Edge?

    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!
  13. Diy Leather Edge Machine

    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
