  1. Holster with snake skin insert

    watching as i too will be delving into the inlay of slithering things...lol, have a hat band, belt and maybe wallet ordered...
  2. Lot of 12 Singer 78-3 and Consew 28 mix

    understood as is, but prices? mentioned but not listed
  3. Well I guess you better send me one... I'll shoot you a message
  4. Material To Use For Rein Rounder

    ditto...sorry old post but someone is looking for one, i have a flaring tool so i'll give it a go since it's been years since i've done brake lines or any flaring
  5. If you don't need that handy junior i'd be interested I definitely agree with this...the adler will sew #207 top just fine, but will not pull it up consistently...#207 top and #138 bottom makes a beautiful stitch and for belts, sheaths or other light duty items is plenty strong.
  6. looks like they're around $20 so i'd say grind away...lol https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/1-8-outside-welt-foot-gauge-singer-120369-1-8.aspx?variant_id=282645
  7. Louisiana new guy.

    The classes at b.c. tandy are good, but can be hit or miss. Tucker is the one that does the classes usually and is pretty knowledgeable and very eager to help, but don't think they'd be covering boots/shoes, and for knife sheaths you're probably better off using the 2 hrs practicing or researching/reading here.... i'd be more than happy to trade some leather knowledge for welding lol, that is an art form all it's own.
  8. not sure these will match your machine...but here are the links anyway, the welting foot did not have a smooth bottom foot... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078GGSLYK/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.ebay.com/itm/FIT-FOR-ADLER-67-68-167-267CL-2-TOE-WELT-FOOT-SET-1-4-S67-1-4-1SET/152427460804?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  9. i found feet for the adler on amazon and ebay already smoothed out...they may already be out there ;-)
  10. i got mine on amazon, i accidentally bought this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00004RAO2/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 first before measuring the shaft...turns out i needed this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00498DVWI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1to work with the bushing that goes on the motor shaft...the 1.5" was just a hair too wobbly with out it and the 3/4" with the bushing fit perfect...the servo on my adler is the fesm-550sm. With the smaller pulley and servo turned to where it'll still punch through I can creep along, also remember if you buy the smaller pulley to check belt size...I had to go down 2" in v-belt, unless you have enough adjustment to make up the slack. I haven't looked at a bigger handwheel pulley yet, the adler is not easy to find parts for and i haven't tried removing the existing handwheel to see what it would take, but honestly with the pulley/belt change it's working great.
  11. Snake Skin tanning

    funny, same scenario here....buddy was out squirrel hunting and came across one and nearly stepped on it... it's skinned and stretched, wasn't sure what to tell him to do besides that...never did find out if he got any squirrel...lol. He's hoping i can use it for some inlay on a belt and wallet for his boy for Christmas.
  12. Small case for falconry.

    I like it!
  13. Orders to ship

    Awesome, didn't know this existed...of course never felt the need to search for it before now either....lol.
  14. Stohlman's Book Method
