  1. Thor industrial sewing machine

    Just realized, the nick o 441 cylinder has been discussed. You all have a terrific weekend! )
  2. Thor industrial sewing machine

    Techsew 5100 seems to offer a nice package as well. Any comments on service and support if one were to choose between Techsew 5100 vs. CB4500, or just ones preference? I've been reading a lot of the views here on the LW and just want to make sure the Techsew is as good as the CB. You know, it its a lot of money. It seems CB might be the way to go. I'm in the St. Louis area. Purchased my Consew from Nick o sewing. Again, I THANK all of you for your input, and I won't bother you any further with my questions. Love your input Wizcrafts! Thx )

    Thank You both! Love having the education on the differences in machines. ) I'm definitely going to research these models. Can't Thank everyone enough! )
  4. Thor industrial sewing machine

    Thank You Yetibelle, I'm sorry I didn't specify the model Arthur had purchased. Duh! My error! )Thank You Wizcrafts! I'm SO happy you saw that particular video, because, the issue of going over those double thicknesses is exactly the same issue I continue to come across when making my leather purses, and other projects. I would Love to have a machine that sews flawlessly over those areas. I'll look at both of the models you've mentioned. I really like what my Consew does, But, sometimes I just wish it would go through some "thicker" layers. I appreciate your help and honesty. Many Blessings to everyone and I will let you know if I end up purchasing. All the best to you both. LOVE this forum. Suzanne )
  5. Hello to everyone! Once again, Arthur Porter on You tube talks about his purchasing the Thor Industrial machine. I enjoy his videos. Does anyone know who manufactures the Thor, and are there equivalents. Just investigating it for now. I've stated that I have a consew 227r. I believe the Thor might take on heavier/thicker leather and seams?? Thanks to all of you for your advice.

  8. Nick o sew NKS 441

    Hello to everyone! I wanted to Thank those of you that recommended the "speed reducer" for my Consew 227! Love having that slower speed for control. Nick at Nick o Sew took great care of me! Love their service! After explaining to Nick that I'm using mostly leather now a days to make handbags, etc., I explained to him how my 227 has trouble going through those multiple layers, resluting in broken needles, etc., he recommended the nks 441. Anyone know anything about that machine, or a clone? I'm just investigating for now! Thank You all for any input! All the Best! )
  9. Hello Cantab91! I have a Consew 227r to make leather bags (3_4oz.) It go's thru 3 layers, no problem, but, as you say, when I get in to thicker areas, I feel like I need a different macine to do those areas. I use leather needles, I will go slow thru those areas, helping the machine along, or I've tried to go faster to give it the power to penetrate those areas, but end up with jamming and or busted needles! Would you mind sharing what you ended up doing. Thank You so Much!

  13. Digital servo motor

    I believe you're right!! The servo I have works fine, but, I would like to reduce the speed on my servo a little more. I can't Thank You enough for your help! I might go ahead and order this pulley. If I can change the wax ring on a toilet, I can put this on! LOL Thank You for the link! ) I hope you have a wonderful weekend! )
  14. Consew 227r digital motor

    I'm sorry as well. My servo motor is fine, but I've seen where some machines can do one stitch at a time, which would be great when I'm top stitching on leather and want to have that control. I truly apologize for not explaining my wants and needs. Yes, my servo can go slow, but I've seen where they do one stitch at a time. It would be great to have that option when top stitching a handle on a leather purse for instance and want that great "line"!. Another member also mentioned the speed reducer ! I apologize for not being clearer. I Thank You very much for your input! )
  15. Digital servo motor

    Hi YetiBelle! That's the one I have, and I feel like I'm a good operator, but I've seen machines do that one stitch at a time. would love that for top stitching! Then that's probably all I need, is a speed reducer! Thx so much! Going to check it out! )
