  1. 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! )
  2. 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!
  3. Thank You! I'm really looking forward to the speed reducer! )
  4. brmax...just noticed you're in Missouri as I am! Have a nice snowy day! )
  5. Thank You all so much! Purchasing on line today! ) Have a great day! )
  6. 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! )
  7. 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! )
  8. 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! )
  9. New Table, servo motor and machine from Nick o sew. I just looked at Amazon and they have that motor you mentioned . $199.00 &35.00 for synchronizer. I hope you have a great weekend! Do I need the synchronizer?
  10. Thx brmax! I'm making leather bags/purses now and would like to be able to go slow! I'm working with 3-4oz right now, but it can get a little heavier with lining, etc. I'll check out keysew. Thank You so much! )
  11. I know I've been all over the place with my questions , but, here go's! Which digital servo motor would work best with my 227r. Would love to be able to take a stich at a time!! Appreciate the help from all of you! I know Cobra has a couple to choose from as well. Again, Thank You! )

  14. Uwe, Hello! One thing I did was to adjust the feed timing as you suggested. I am getting a nicer stitch length. I do like this machine an awful lot, so I may not even consider a different machine at this time. Thank You for your help! Also, I find it difficult to get replacement parts for my Consew 227r. I'm interested in a complete bobbin case/hook assembly. Does anyone know which machine would be equivalent to the 227r in which to find parts? Thx again for everyone's help! )
  15. Hi Steve! Getting a lot of great feed back on the Cobra 26. Very interested, and I'm told you're the best guy to deal with! I wish you the best with you're health! )
