  1. I removed the two screws and I think I can see the needle through the screw holes (only because its brighter than the rest of the machine). How do I get it out? thanks in advance Einar
  2. Based on my conversation with someone at Weaver (not the auctioneer) you can set a reserve price but if it doesn't meet the reserve then you the seller still owe the premium on the price it did reach.
  3. Never been to the auction but considering. I also have several Singer Patchers - some treadle, some electric, some long arm I could bring to consign. Hoping people who have attended can answer. I also have possibility of bringing an Adler 105 and Brother DB2-B797. I figure the auctin would be true fun but maybe I can make some money at the same time
  4. CustomDoug: what was the result 6 years ago with the Reece? How did you solve your problem?
  5. Als I guess what is the degree of interchange of parts.
  6. Didn't know a 563N existed. Have an opportunity to purchase. How does it compare to the 563? Would you expect a good price to be more, less, same?
  7. thanks for the quick response to a 5 year old thread.
  8. Greg: I'm looking at what is described as a pair of Jado and Freeman Box X conversions. Are these yours? They look like the Singer 68.Should I have any hesitations? I don't think they have been used in years. Lousy picture but all that I have.
  9. thank you all for your help
  10. Just bought it. Tried a couple of different weights of leather. Just tried a piece of 6 oz stiff leather and its not cutting all the way through? Any thoughts? How much does a new one of the circular blades cost?
  11. Are the soles glued on?
  12. lately i've been seeing semi-freuquent cases where it seems like page loading is wating on something from leatherladyproductions.
  13. I would love to see more photos. Looks like the front under the flap is made from 3 separate pieces of leather. If you can't post more I can Private Message my email.
  14. I am now the proud owner of a used 5100? But looking at the specs it says for use from 6oz to 7/8". I will not be using light weight leathers but never anything remotely like 7/8" and probably mosty from 4oz to 6oz. The deal was too good to pass up but I'm wondering if I bought something not well suited to the weights I intend to use it for. Also the proud owner of LU 563 and more patchers than I have fingers on one hand.
  15. What about the "self oiling" aspect for a used 367? I'm looking at a used one that has been used in a factory for years. Is this a concern?
