  3. Hey guys, Im looking at a pfaff 145 that's for sale locally. Its model number says 145-p-6c H3LMN Would this machine be suitable for leather? What oz is the limit? Trying to get for a reasonable price if it can do it. Not sure what kinda shape its in. Just want to know more info before I go look at it. They are asking $700, seems a little high to me..thoughts?

    We have 2 of the Ferdco 2000 machines and parts are easy to find, we order everything thru leather machine co(cobra makers), as the machines are the same, just branded differently. Support is also the same, join facebook group :cobra tips and tricks: you'll find all the help you need there.
  5. Problems with ferdco pro bull

    This machine has given me little problems here and there over the years but nothing like it has lately. I use 138 thread in the bobbin and 207 on the top, using a size #25 DYX3 LR needles of high quality. I've been using this combo for years with no issues until lately. I have 2 of these Ferdco machines, 1 usually works fine, its the new one I got thats a pain..Ive had a sewing machine mechanic out a few times and every time it works for about an hours and then goes back to being a POS lol. I dont change ANY settings at all. Goes back to gathering up underneath and skipping. I know its got to do with the timing.

  8. Problems with ferdco pro bull

    Ok so I've had this machine in my shop for almost 6 months. Since I got it its never worked correctly. I've had a sewing machine mechanic look at it a few times and we can never seem to figure out what's wrong with it. It constantly drops my lock stitch even if I do it manually. it will also skip stitches randomly when the rest of it looks fine. I'm getting frustrated..maybe someone on here can enlighten me with some ideas? I'll try and post some photos of what I mean.

  14. Pfaff 138, general info wanted

    Hey everyone, I just picked up a really nice Pfaff 138 machine and I was wondering what its limitations are? I was curious if I could sew lighter weight leather with it or is it only for fabric? I've been told different things from different people. So, at this point Im confused?? I am debating putting it up for sale if I cant use it for leather at all(which is why I bought it, and stupid for not posting this before I purchased it *facepalm*). Any suggestions or comments are appreciated. I just want to learn more about it, and decide if Im going to keep it or not. Its a great machine and in amazing condition! Thanks!
