  1. Simanco part number 91716. Would you please let me know what you have? Thank you. Here's a picture
  2. Video of an industrial sewing motor pulley being made

    Thanks for sharing Gregg - I too enjoyed the video - quite educational. That fellow must have a fine machine shop.
  3. Stitch length maxes out too early

    That's impressive Uwe.
  4. Crazy stitching

    We've had this handheld postage scale around here for years, the range is 0-8 ounces. Might be interesting to actually check the upper and lower tensions on a few leather projects. Easy enough to do.
  5. Crazy stitching

    Is the needle in correctly?
  6. Would the twist (LH or RH) of the thread in the right throw bobbin of this machine cause the problem with the stitch?
  7. New toy

    Reddturtle, Do you bet on long shots? Here's one - several months ago I attended a leather show in Jeffersonville, Indiana, home of the former Bauer Sewing Machine Co., and happened to meet Mr. Greg Sartor, President of Silver Creek Leather Company, 812) 945-8520, https://www.realeather.com/about. Silver Creek has been in business in Jeffersonville, In. since 2002. I'm thinking Mr. Sartor might have some information on the Bauer Company or a lead or two for you to pursue. Good luck.
  8. Hi Jimi, can't complain, we're doing okay here, thank you. Looking forward to the pics, not to worry, I would never laugh at you. All the best.
  9. Singer45K, If you're planning to make 45K feet and want to do a couple extras, would you please let me know? I've been trying to find them.
  10. New toy

    Some of these may be useful. The first link is offering instruction and parts manual for the Bauer. http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals.com/173/PictPage/3923886827.html http://leatherworker.net/forum/topic/78217-bauer-1919-harness-machine/
  11. Screwdivers

    It's pretty amazing, cost $63.13 delivered in 1996.

    This is the only set I've ever used.....bought it in 1996. It normally resides in a leather saddle bag on my Harley. https://www.specialized.net/wadsworth-super-deluxe-mini-ratchet-screwdriver-set-4-52-pc.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIif_G_8Sf2wIV3LjACh3rYwdLEAQYASABEgIz__D_BwE
  13. Sewing machine repair book.

    When I was first getting familiar with restoring some Singer machines , I learned a tremendous amount from this U. S. Naval training manual. Sewing machines start at Ch. 4, (page 53). http://militarynewbie.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/NAVEDTRA-14217-Aircrew-Survival-Equipmentman-1-C.pdf
  14. Thank you Merlijn. I'll check that out. Do you happen to have the number for the part you used?
