  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. It is definately the cast iron version , so it is a better machine than the new ones

  8. 110 = 1,1mm 120 = 1,2 mm and so on. (110 mm more than 4")
  9. Adler 205-374 with an EFKA Variostop motor, JUKI LU-563 (EFKA Variostop motor) and an Adler 30-1
  10. Right, Oakley! 332 needle system is for the Adler 30-1
  11. It must be made into a ladies saddle!
  12. The outside foot only moves up and down, not forward and backwards. If it doesn´t move up and down there is a problem.
  13. What an excellent tool. I´m gonna make me one tomorrow! Thank´s Bruce
  14. There is an article on Paniolo saddles in the latest copy of The saddlers and leathercrafters journal, written by Pete Gorrell
  15. The first version made of iron and steel parts were good machines. The "upgraded" version mede of aluminum and zink inner parts is almost worthless, a piece of shit! I have had both models.but sold them and bought a real good Adler 205.
