    Do these legs burnish or do you just sand and add edge coat?

  7. caiman tail bi-fold wallet

    it is very tough. my friend was really loving the caiman tail so i made it. i also read that it can crack. i strategically placed the fold of the wallet on the gap between the scales. time will tell what will happen to it. i backed it with a piece of leather so hopefully that will reinforce it. real pain to sew tho. i was not happy with the stitching on the caiman side of the wallet. very rough looking from the bumpy surface the stitches lay across. he was happy and i guess that is all that matters.

    i use springfield leather company for my leather. the quality is drastically better than tandy
  10. singer 119-2 presser foot and tension issue

    bottom tension is good. had a friend who sews for a living come over he got the tension right for me but voiced concern at how tight it was too. Is this machine the same as a class 78?
  11. singer 119-2 presser foot and tension issue

    that wont mess up the sewing to just cut off the tip? so you think the spring could just be weak? maybe the original 1939 spring isn't what it once was?
  12. Hello all, I bought a singer 119-2 cylinder bed sewing machine and it is working fine after some tlc and a new servo motor. I would like to replace the walking feet with ones that would allow me to see the needle. The one i have now the needle goes through the front foot and makes it hard to see where im sewing especially around corners. Is there a replacement foot that will fit this machine? Having a hard time finding info on this. So far all i have seen is a foot that comes on the 78-3 but it has some teeth on the bottom and i was trying to stay away from that if i can since im sewing leather. Also i have my tension really high. I works fine but just seems really tight. I had to tighten it that much to get the seam right just doesn't seem right. Im using 138 size thread. Should i replace the tension assembly? Any info would help thank you.
