  1. stitching English point accurately

    use an edge creaser and put a dot with your awl at the tip...4 stitches before getting to the point start planning...change stitch lengths appropriately like anything it will take some time to get this down usually finishing at the lugs in the same place is harder..I use the same method

  6. Techsew TS-3850

    Sounds weird. Techsew has the best customer service. Machines I received were in perfect order.
  7. Hello Everyone wondering if anyone here has a Cobra Class 14 splitter and has any tips to getting started with it. Just ordered it today and am looking forward to it. Thank you Greg
  8. heat burnishing, sanding and edge paint...repeat repeat
  9. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. Where can I get a large thread cone rack to store 40 or so cones of thread. All the ones I have seen seem to be for small spools of thread. Thank you Greg
  10. Leather squeezing out from bottom side feed dogs

    I have a techsew 2750 pro and if you cement the edges you will not have this problem... double sided tape...tried it did not work.. I got real good at gluing with Masters cement after awhile and it dries fast ...no waiting to sew good luck
  11. Regad Creaser problem

    my watch strap tip does not get hot at the very tip near the collar it does anyone else have this happen see picture
  12. WTB Post-Bed Sewing Machine (WI - USA)

    call Ron at Techsew..techsew.com
  13. Roller feed vs walking foot

    I have both from Techsew and they are both great machines...but of course Ron is correct the feeding for your purposes will be better with a walking foot.. I have the 2750PRO and for my money it is the most versatile for my uses. Get a speed reducer you will not be sorry..just my humble opinion Remember "buy the seller"..and the follow up support from Techsew is fantastic! Good Luck
  14. Thread types 'n' tension 'n' stuff

    I have found that polyester hangs up quite a bit more in the machine..so problematic for me I barely use it.. just my 2 cents.
