  1. HI

    i own a 1445 as well and I'm close to solving my issues with it. Did you solve yours?



  2. here an update with: 1.the right thread, 2. needle 3. tension , 4.bobbin wound correctly, 5.the machine adjusted.better. Setting up is very hard. Thanks to all
  3. Please let us know if that works, because I like guns, and all the stuff that goes with them. So, for me it is a good reason for a new toy
  4. Thanks again Adrils, The D point was a request from the wife for a less wavy stitch( I like a good LR stitch) Madhatter, I've done exactly what you warned me against more than once. Thanks for all the advise!!
  5. Thanks, ArildS I didn't notice the knots , but I didn't like the look this stitch. Now I know why
  6. Try adjusting the bobbin tension. The smaller 92 will may slip past the settings that you've always used for the larger 138 thread
  7. It's been a battle, but I think I've got it on the run. The question is can I get it better. It marked up this harness leather pretty good. I know there's a lot of operator errors. So let the critic begin. this was on : PFAFF 1445 w a clutch motor reduced 4:1, but the clutch will not let me creep along. 8 OZ. Harness W&C( good stuff) 207 on top and 138 below all polyester bonded with a 134 35D needle ,~ a 4mm stitch
  8. Wow , I like the workmanship you put into it a lot. You might be able to use a stiffer/thicker leather on the back to help with the fit. I like the molding. Not too much , not too little. Post up the next one when you figure out what style it will be.
  9. Awesome Workmanship! 1st class
  10. Sonydaze,I tried the 138/138 Black/white and it didn't go any better. A close look at the hook showed the thread catching at the needle plate./ Hook tab area. I polished the groves in the needle plate and Hook Tab away and stropped the finish. This helped a little. What seemed to work best was a fresh bobbin using the same thread as the top thread... I have now used 207/207 @ 24 and 138/138 @ 23. the 207 thread.worked well , but I don't see why? Any one had this problem before? I doubt my problem is unique .
  11. Sonydaze, Good point I'll try that first.
  12. Nuttish: Didi you solve your problem? I'm having similar problems
  13. The top thread is being pulled very tight over the hook assembly as the thread is coming around the hook. The thread pops around the hook . The check spring will flutter as this happens The hook timing appears to be advanced. I've been looking for UWE's video on this very situation, but can't seem to find it........found it
  14. I'll check harder for that, Thanks SandyT
  15. This is my first machine, and I have tried to solve this problem for days . On soft thick leather I don't seem to have this problem , but even on 5 oz Veg I always run into trouble. The top thread will break through the bottom intermittently. I've maxed out the presser feet pressure, and increased the top tension until I get loops on top. Is this operator error? what can cause this? In this picture I'm using 207/138 polyester bonded top/bottom with a new 134/35 24 LR needle on 8 oz. veg
