  3. Ferdinand 900b check it out

    So I wasn't really looking to buy another machine but I came across this Bull on craigslist. It looked from the picture to have some damage to the top of the machine where the spring is for the jump foot. And it was set up to run on a pneumatic motor. I contacted them and pointed out the damage and said I would be interested in the machine for parts and made a VERY low offer. Since I already have a Bull I had nothing to loose. I drove out to the Cape ( Cape Cod ) and picked it up yesterday. Looks like they got the machine via auction. It came from a Samsonite luggage factory. Of course now that I have I want to make it run. I THINK I CAN, I THINK I CAN. Plus check out the custom made throat plates, Looks like they are for the welting on the luggage. Also came with an exploded view of the Bull and a parts list. Some thing I have never seen.
  4. PFAFF 545 OR 1295 experience? opinions?

    I had an LU562, which was a nice machine but I upgraded to a DNU154. I like the horizontal hook better. The LuU562 would get clogged with thread. With the DNU1541 can use a heavier thread if I need it. This machine I use for English tack repair. Replacing Knee pad and Knee rolls on English saddle. My heavier jobs like halter and harness I use my Ferdinand Bull.

    My employer uses a 545 for her horse blanket repair part of the business. I have sewn a few chaps on it. It sews like butter but....... Parts seem to be hard to find and the safety clutch seems to pop frequently. Easy enough to reset. I like my Juki better. Parts are easy to find and it is less temperamental.
