  1. looks like an old machine gun...show a video of it in action!
  2. best way to start and end is....forward stitch,back stitch, then forward stitch to lock everything up.
  3. I crease a line to stay parallel to the edge. Visulalization of your needle is key. I modified my walking foot pressor foot to see the needle and I use a roller foot machine as well. I use an awl to mark all the points you have on your drawing and aim for those. Hand crank when you are 1 or 2 stitches away from these points to hit the mark if you need to. Over time and practice you will get to know your machine and leather better for stitch length approximation and the machine will do all the work for you. It took quite a large number of straps to get this down and I started by making key fobs as they are just straps as well and fun to make Hope that helps
  4. just call Ron at Techsew and he will set you straight...fantastic support
  5. the more company support you have for the machine you buy the shorter and easier learning curve. Buy the Seller! I have 2 Techsew machines and could not be happier with the machines and the support. I do wish someone would have been around to teach me but the process now that I look back on it was necessary to know how to do things. The good companies will help you pick out the correct machine for you. Let us know what you do!
  6. do you mean you enlarged the slit for the belts?? that is what I had to do..
  7. Speed reducer I installed went directly in line with the machine and I just had to move the servo motor a little
  8. I will refer him directly to you..
  9. made watch straps, a wallet and belt for a good customer in Texas...he wants custom shoes but does not know where to turn.. anyone here??
  10. for watch straps wallet and belts I use Masters..sets up fast holds tight and sewing through it is great. you HAVE to thin it with their thinner..
  11. great so far.//would love to see more. I was afraid to do this as I thought the leather would not feed well..but my mod was fairly minimal and worked great. UWE....extreme and awesome!
  12. someone here recommended them so I went with it...best I can say is that I have not had ANY issues and they sew great...
  13. cut out the pressor foot on my Techsew 2750 pro and it worked great for edge sewing. I can see the needle like I wanted to!
  14. my servo was modified to use with a speed reducer from Techsew...it works great. It was quite a day putting it all together though but well worth it
  15. my machine is needle fed yes....I think that should work..the only way I have found to test it is to do it yourself with the materials that you use regularly. hope that helps ..
