  1. Need stitching advice

    I am currently stitching all my wallets by hand because I like the way the thicker thread looks. I have a Consew 207rb5 that I use for any hidden stitches but it will not handle a large enough thread to replace hand sewing the visable areas. Being I am sewing wallets with 3-4oz Harness Leather it’s also crucial to have a feed dog that will not chew up the finished side of the leather. Any suggestions on alternatives to hand sewing that will give the same look with the larger thread?
  2. Sewing before finishing

    I'm making a bass bow quiver with a carved pattern. I usually sew projects after they are fully stained, antiqued, and finished (usually satin shene.) In this case, I need to sew the pattern up and then wet the project and place a block in the end to expand the leather a bit so it doesn't pinch the bow when inserted during use of the quiver. Do I sew it up before blocking then stain and finish? This will make it difficult to antique and the finish may drip as it won't be laying flat. If I finish then sew and try to expand the end, won't it mess the finish?
  3. A friend picked this machine up for a good price, does anyone happen to know what brand it is or clone type? Thanks!
  4. Best affordable machine

    So I’m new to leather working, I’ve been hand stitching my projects but it’s SO tedious! I’d like to get a sewing machine, but the ones I’m seeing are over $1,000? I usually use 2 layers of 8 Oz leather for my breast collars and a layer of 8 Oz and a layer of 5-6oz for inlays on the bridles I make. I don’t want a machine that barely gets through the leather, I’ve seen a few that sew 1/4” leather well (or they’re advertised to do so). Is that enough? Or do I need to get something more heavy duty? Any advice on what brands are good and what price range they’re in (around $500 would be best, but i know it’s a long shot)
  5. Threading the needle

    Does anyone have step-by-step pictures of how you knot your thread when threading a needle for hand stitching? I am having trouble with my knots slipping undone as I stitch and would love to not have to re-tie several times. Thanks!
  6. Hello Everyone, I am new to leather work and have been making small accessories for about a year. I ultimate goal is to make horse tack for barrel racing or possibly heavy leather hand bags. I am looking at investing into a leather sewing machine, what should I be looking for? What machines will work for me? I plan to make breast collars, halters, nose bands, etc. Let me know what you think. Thanks in Advance, Jessica

  8. Like new Cobra Class 4 premium package. Used less than 1 hour. I had a holster business and Tandy Leather dealership years ago. Thought I would get back into it and changed my mind. Machine, several spools of thread (black, brown etc.), tool box, maule, punches, knives, bevelers, swivel knife, HD stamp/rivet press, dies for press, Clicker Dies: two types of western holsters, iwb, pancake, foldover for small caliber, cowboy cuffs (2), gun belt buckle and tongue dies, rounder, practice piece, arrow head, spur straps, iwb leather belt loop. These are high quality clicker dies with almost no wear. YOU DO NOT NEED A CLICKER TO USE DIES - you simply lay the die on concrete or other hard surface (blade up), place you leather over the die and tap around the die with a maul or mallet. In minutes you have a perfect cut out. The concealment holster dies are not shown and are steel rule/plywood dies. The press is not shown either. I forgot to mention that I have an extra motor/tabletop for the sewing machine. Also some gun molds (red gun and Duncan alum) $3800. These items are included with the machine: Premium Accessory Package: Left Toe Presser Foot $75* Open Toe Center Foot $65* Double Toe Presser Foot $80* Right Toe Presser Foot $75* Work Platform $95* Holster Plate $156* Stirrup Plate $156* Slotted Plate $85* Blanket Set (Inside & Outside Feet w/ Feed Dog) $150* Heavy Duty Roller Edge Guide $95* Pair of Thread Nippers $2* LDA-1 Magnetic LED Light $20* Owner and parts manual

  10. I'm aquiring my equipment for a retirement hobby business that I want to pursue I'm fortunate to live about 2hrs from the Wicket & Craig tannery and they do retail sales And I like tooling shaping and stitching leather but saddle stitching is slow so........ as a business I'd like to mostly do belts, chaps, sheathes, and holsters but might try wallets, Totes, watch bands and whatever also. at this time I have : an older consew, a 226 (Seiko build) that I plan on doing the lighter work on using 69 and 92 thread for Watchbands, wallets and other work below 8oz and medium fabric work Another older consew a 206rb-4 (Seiko build) I'm planing to use for 138 and 207over138 thread work I Plan to use it for Belts and simple sheaths below 20 oz total How much tweaking would a 206 take to reliably run 207 in the bobbin? A cb3200 which was my first leather stitcher And second sewing machine of any type before the Acquisition virus took hold i plan to continue to use this for pancake holsters, heavier belts, and welted sheaths up to 32oz total using 207 and 277 thread a CB4500 for everything heavier than 32 oz or needing 346 or 415 thread and finally I also have a China cobbler and a herd of Black iron singer domestics for the really light stuff I believe my intended usages are appropriate to the machines in hand Any suggestions or something I'm maybe not considering? I'll still be working for a few more years so as OT is available i will add the equipment thats still needed Like a powered splitter and strap cutter and possibly a better patcher? Tia Jim

  13. Hi, How economically feasable would you say is to buy an leather sewing machine like an Juki TSC 441 or it's clones like the Cobra class 4/CB 4500? I have heard stories from "just with 1 saddle repair you can pay off a leather sewing machine" to "it's more like a Hobby since Prices are to low for leather goods to justify an sewing machine". In my case it's indeed more an Hobby since I make only one-to-one personal sales despite I am on etsy.com. I have seen here an constructioners harness (for hammer, nails, screwdrivers, etc) made in Mexico (Truper brand) seemingly real leather for about 6 US$. Well constructed, lots of rivets and sewn with about #69 thread. Clear is, for that Price I would never make the harness. I would rather have an Price of 49 US$. Whats the real leather market about? Considered big retailers, Made in China and local leather shops as competition.
  14. Enduro pro sm645-1p

    I recently purchased a juki lu563. It came with an extra motor, a enduro pro sm645-1p. It was missing the fuse cap and fuse. I contacted enduro and they can’t tell me what amp fuse is used with this motor. Does anyone know what amp buss fuse is used with this motor? I’d like to get it running. thanks

  16. I have a bit of a dilemma. I am fairly new to leatherwork. I am in my 60s and still work part-time as a government contractor. At this point, I am just a hobbyist but may want to try to sell some goods in the future. I am most interested in making knife sheets and holsters and some motorcycle accessories. I jump into everything with both feet. I've already spent several thousand dollars on a variety of tools and other necessities. I am from a law enforcement background so I have a lot of connections in that field and in the motorcycle field, so that is where my customer base would be. I have been hand stitching up to this point and I have to say the results are actually pretty good. I would like to speed things up a bit with the sewing machine. I have been longing for a Tipmann Boss. I have read every review that I can find but there doesn't seem to be a real consensus. I have also been looking at the Cowboy and Cobra electric machines. The Boss is expensive but affordable. The electric machines are crazy expensive for a hobbyist. The mistake I don't want to make is buying the Boss and being dissatisfied with it a year later and buying the electric machine. Has anyone used the Boss long-term? Have you wished that you had just taken a big bite out of the bullet and bought the electric machine?
  17. Techsew 2700

    I have a very lightly used Techsew 2700 for sale. The machine includes table and SmartServo motor with bobbins, needles and swing down roller guide. I purchased five years ago from Techsew and haven't even finished the first spool of thread it came with. Hope it can go to a good home. I live in Atlanta and am asking $1000 if you can pick up.

  18. I have a new (to me) Seiko SK-2B-1-20, long arm walking foot machine and have trouble-shot everything I can - set the hook timing, needle bar height, adjusted feed dog & presser foot. It's working okay. This is my first time using an industrial machine - I have used many small machines. I'm using this machine for sewing books - sewing through about 3/8" thick paper. I can do this work on my old Singer, but the stitch length isn't variable, and I needed longer stitches. I also wanted working space for wider books. My question is regarding thread tension and thread weight. I'm trying to use Chinois linen thread, #532 and it keeps breaking. It's very hard to pull the thread through the machine, there's just so much tension. If I set the tension any looser, I get loops on the back of my work. I have to use two hands to pull the thread through before starting or at the end of my piece. The mechanisms are all about the same as those on my old Singer, so I don't know why it would require so much more tension to work. I have adjusted the bobbin tension - it's as tight as can be, though the bobbin thread is much looser than the top thread. Is it possible to use this machine with lighter weight thread or does it have to be very thick thread? I'm worried I may have bought the wrong machine. Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi all! I'm working on a deal to buy a singer 16-41. I've spend hours combing the various websites and threads on singers and I'm finding conflicting info. So my questions are: Is the 16-41 a walking foot machine? How thick can it sew? This one is treadle powered, can it be hooked up to an electric motor. I'm a sewing machine novice so thanks in advance Rich
  25. Greek Key Stitching Pattern

    A friend of mine asked me to replicate this Greek key pattern on his belt for a new hat band. I've been working with the pattern for a while now with little success. Problems are: 1) replicating stitch width to create pattern (left to right distance when looking at the photo) - all of the patterns I've tried are way too wide so it looks like random stitching versus a pattern, and 2) leather tearing out between stitching - when I do get the holes close enough to resemble the pattern then it tears out as one piece. Anyone done something like this? Any tips are greatly appreciated.
