  1. I'm shopping for my first industrial machine and came across this Pfaff. Can anyone identify the model?
  2. Still works. 1/2 leather no problem. Walking foot. Servo Motor. upgraded Singer Treadle. Cost - peanuts! (God forbid if it ever needs any parts!)
  3. I found a walking foot machine with reverse that fits my budget ($450). It's the CONSEW 118. I haven't found too much info on YouTube for this machine. The seller claims it was a back-up for him and has been stored indoors for the life of the machine. The pictures seem to support his claim as it is a clean machine. I intend to use this machine for leather wallets, backpacks, messenger bags using thinner leather. I'd like to do some basic holsters and upholstery in the future. I would very much appreciate your honest opinions, especially information regarding; space parts vendors/availability, needle recommendations, where to purchase additional presser feet, etc. Thank you all. Mark in Colorado.
  4. Ive been making leather wallets and tool holsters by hand for years. I read here to look for a singer 211. My dreams came true. I purchased a singer 211g166 this weekend for 150.00. It comes with its table. Its old clutch motor has been replaced with a brand new 3/4 horse servo system. Drove 1 1/2 hours each way to get it Ive never used a sewing machine before. Whats the first thing i should do?

  6. I just purchased a 1950's Pfaff 130 to sew garment leather on. I'm having a hard time getting the leather to feed through the feed dogs. From what I've researched I am seeing that I may need to upsize my motor but I also think I need a walking foot. My question is, can I safely attach a walking foot to this machine without damaging the machine? Is it made to handle it? If not I am in the market for a machine that can sew between 2.5 - 6 oz. leather. Any and all input is appreciated. Thank you.
  7. Have a chance to pick up one of these machines and cannot find any information about it. Has anyone used one? Know any leads about manual or parts? (wrote to Chandler, still waiting to hear back...)
  8. Hi everyone, Just a heads up for anyone looking for a walking foot industrial machine. I found a listing on Kijiji (Canada), and traveled there to pick up one of the 22 (twenty two) industrial machines that the company is selling. The price that they are asking is $200 cdn. Note: I have NO financial interest in these transactions. I'm posting the information as a potential connection for the members of these forums (who have given me much good and valuable information). So, here's the scoop: The machines are mostly Durkopp 291 walking foot units (there were also two Pfaff units there) They are 3 phase machines running at 220v (60 cycles). They require a pneumatic line to operate the foot lift, and some other functions. There are no manuals. The operators of these machines are no longer at the factory.... There is no plug on the end of the cord (snipped off, probably were hard wired into the plant's electrical system). According to Naresh (the manager who was my contact, these were all in running condition when removed from service). One of the machines I looked at was missing the bobbin top (and parts for these are EXPENSIVE!) Inspect carefully for any missing bits! I've gotten the one I purchased home and am cleaning it up and getting her going again. I'm currently waiting on a rotary phase converter ($300 US, with shipping). A harbor you know who cheapo compressor will provide air (I hope). Other pieces I've ordered: bobbins (they used preloaded bobbins), and a selection of needles. If you are interested in the machines, call or text Naresh : +1 (647) 459-0110, tell him that Marty gave you his contact info. The machines are located at: Dynasty Furniture Manufacturing, Ltd. 6830 Columbus Rd, Mississauga, ON L5T 2G1, Canada Other notes: If crossing from the US like I did, DON'T use the "Rainbow Bridge". The border guard was VERY grumpy about me using that crossing for a business related trip. He gave me a warning and said I could be fined. Nice welcome back to the US of A! The third pic is of the machine I bought, after some cleaning. Anyone who knows anything about the control modules, please let me know. Have not found anything online about those yet. The module I have says "Durkopp v720" on the front, and "Dz101" on the back. Will post this question in a more appropriate forum eventually.
  9. Juki LU-563 Walking Foot + Sewquiet 5k

    Selling my JUKI LU-563 walking foot industrial sewing machine. I purchased it from a sewing machine servicing company who refurbished the machine in 2014. Machine is setup to sew leather. The machine works great. Comes with table and 3/4 hp digital servo motor. (Sewquiet 5000). Motor currently has a larger pulley to increase torque, but original pulley and belt is still available with it. Will come with a bunch of black and white M size pre-wound bobbins as well as magnetic LED light and leather point needles. Instruction manual and parts list and thread tree included. She may not be the prettiest, but she does the job! The table is not great, and bows down in the middle. I was given the table for free with the head, so passing that along. I will include the 1/2 hp clutch motor that came with it for free as well if wanted (just collecting dust on the shelf). Price is $900. Located in Sugar Hill, GA (45 min north of Atlanta). Message me or post with any questions, ill do my best to answer as quick as I can.
  10. I have an amazing Juki LU-563 walking foot sewing machine for sale. Heavy and solid cast body, made in Japan. The entire machine was overhauled by Sloan Machinery in New Hampshire about 3 years ago. They replaced the internal parts that had any signs of minor wear, installed a Sew Green Servo Motor, and changed the drive belt. They also mounted it on a good sized, very sturdy table. Mounted beside the machine is an automatic bobbin winder that runs while you sew (it’ll fill a full bobbin before you’ve used half of the one in the machine). You can also wind bobbins when you’re not sewing. The machine has been meticulously maintained and is in excellent condition. It’s always been used and stored in the climate controlled portion of the house. Every time I use it I oil all oil points with the included sewing machine oil (all oil points are marked so you’ll never forget). The Juki LU-563 is a workhorse of a machine. I used it to make leather bags and accessories, sewing up to 3 layers of 4oz leather with ease. I bought it for $1500 and am including a bit over $100 worth of thread, needles and spare bobbins. They run for about $1500 on eBay in similar condition so I’m asking for $1300 cash. I won’t ship, but I’ll gladly meet you around the Hartford, CT area. Please let me know if you have questions or would like more pictures - I can send as many as you'd like! Juki LU-563 Built in Japan Motor: Sew Green Electronic Servo Motor Model FL-400 110V 400W RPM: 0-3450 Table: Sturdy adjustable steel frame with laminate top Built in Peddle Made in the USA Light: Adjustable ultra bright LED light Bonded Nylon Thread Size 138 Navy - 3 x 4oz spools (2 brand new) Black - 1 x 4oz spool Gold Brown - 1 x 2oz spool Brown - 1 x 2oz spool Size 92 Black - 1 x 4oz spool Size 69 Black - 2 x 4oz spool (1 brand new) Needles 3 packs of size 23 Organ Needles 1 pack of size 22 Schmetz needles 1 pack of size 21 Groz-Beckert needles 1 pack of size 20 needles Bobbins 8 Metal bobbins Oil EW White Diamond sewing machine oil (about 75% remaining)
  11. Singer Double Needle 112W140

    Selling a Singer 112w140 (I think) double needle machine. It is in very good shape, bought it from Bob at Toledo Sewing last year. Clutch motor, forward only lockstitch. Asking $600. Must pick up in Columbus, OH.
  12. For sale: One Juki LU-1560n double needle, compound feed walking foot machine with table and 600w servo motor. I recently obtained this in a factory sale but I am quickly realizing I don't have the space for a dedicated two-needle machine. This machine is in excellent clean condition, (doesn't seem like it was in service very long) with only the basic signs of use (some typical scratches here and there on the machine bed, belt guard, etc). I've tested it with 69, 92 and 138 bonded nylon and it sews great and climbs over most anything that will squeeze under the foot. 16 layers of ballistic nylon and it didn't flinch. Only issue with the machine I noticed - the thread tensioner disc for winding the bobbins is missing. I imagine they used pre-wounds in the factory and this was a non-issue. I've ordered a new assembly (genuine Juki part) Specs: http://www.juki.co.jp/industrial_e/download_e/catalog_e/lu1500n.pdf 2- needle, currently 1/4" gauge 0-9mm stitch length 16mm foot lift 135x17/16 needle system up to #24 6.5mm climb Rectangular feed locus Big "U" size bobbins Built-in bobbin winder Auto lubrication with filtration (flows great!) Safety clutch Will come with: Table in "decent" condition. The table seems older than the machine. Has all the expected production environment scratches, etc. There was a electric foot lifter solenoid attached, but no switch or power plug for it available on the basic motor, but I'll include it anyway. 600w basic brush-less servo motor with 50mm pulley Brand new belt Brand new oil filter pad Brand new bottle 700ml Juki Defrix #2 Brand new 4-spool thread stand Brand new magnet LED light Brand new waste oil bottle Spare waste oil bottle Pack of brand new misc needles #16 - #24 Basically add thread and materials and sew. Asking $2000. Would prefer pickup or I can arrange drop off somewhere near the SF bay area. Shipping via LTL freight possible too - I can strap it to a pallet, buyer to pay for freight and extra for lift gate as required.
  13. Available for pick up in Long Island New York. I own a Techsew 2800 which is a cylinder arm sewing machine with smart servo motor that comes with a table attachment which allows you to use it as a regular leather walking foot machine...it also comes with all the bells and whistles, laser guide, swing down arm, adjustable motor, up down needle position etc. the machine is brand new barely used. It can sew edge tape with the supplied attachment. Fully assembled. See the available YouTube videos at link below. https://m.youtube.com/results?q=techsew 2800 pro&sm=3 Asking $2,000 OBO
  14. This machine (Consew 2050) has been in my home for 7 months and I have used it all of 5 hours, might be less. I purchased this machine brand new, had it delivered to my smoke free home and purchased different gadgets to make sewing easy. I have changed my focus in leather, therefore this machine is to powerful. A great machine for someone working with heavy leather. Based on the pictures...you will get a right and left zipper foot, sewing roller guide, a regular sewing guide, feeding dog plate with no ridges, oil and thread spools. All original parts will come with the machine as well. Everything listed in the pictures is your. Please feel free to ask questions... Pickup only Indianapolis 46214 ! $3500.00/OBO I have more picture but maxed on MB 219-214- three four nine three APPLICATIONS For stitching extra heavy-weight materials Designed for such operations and products as bag and suitcase handles, seat cushions, safety and logging belts, cargo slings, buffing wheels, tents, sails, harnesses, tarpaulins and covers, fabric structures, construction barriers, parachutes, balloons, industrial bags, boot stitching, book binding Extended workspace Designed for extremely large thread and thick materials. Thick seams, horse saddles, harnesses or stirrups are no match for the strength of this machine. It can also sew tight stitches with a long stitch length. “Adler” style casting and features. FEATURES Synchronized upper and lower feeding mechanism assures uniform stitching Alternating presser feet (walking feet) 13/16” (20mm) Presser foot lift - hand or foot operated Two row feeder 2½ stitches per inch Stitches per minute - 800 16-1/2" work area Belt guard
  15. Can anyone recommend a solution for the thread making a snapping noise when it goes around the bobbin.? Its like something is too tight somewhere in the timing process. I thought I saw a video by Uwe sometime back illustrating a similar issue but cannot find it now. It sound like the thread is too tight when going around the bobbin and makes a snapping sound as a result. thnx
  16. I'm relatively new to the world of sewing and I've begun to get my Singer 111W113 back in working order after having it in storage for the past two years. When I bought the machine back in 2014 everything was aligned and the outer presser foot operated properly. While putting everything back together I'm realizing that the outer foot has far too much clearance, especially when sewing a few layers of material. I'm currently working with a lot of Cordura and heavy canvas for making bags. 6+ layers of Cordura are thick enough to make contact with the outer foot and provide pressure. Less material just slides around freely. I've made attempts to adjust the height of this bar but it seems to be in it's lowest possible position. Is there more to adjusting the outer foot pressure / clearance than just the screw on the top rear of the machine? Thanks in advance!

  18. Roller feed vs walking foot

    I am looking to buy my first leather sewing machine, I want to primarily make bags, and moccasin style shoes. 2 maybe 3 layers of 6-8 oz softer temper leather. I also like to stitch designs on to webbing belts (2 layers of seat belt webbing). The likelihood of me making a holster or sheath out of leather is slim to none. I might venture into leather belts. So here is where I am going to ask for help. What is the difference between roller feed , active roller feeds (techsew 830) and walking feet (techsew 860) for my applications I have only previously used a pfaff 545 & 1245 so I am familiar with how a walking foot operates, I am more curious what are the advantages and disadvantages of both. I will say I really like the idea of being able to see my needle as it plunges into the leather. I know my weaknesses are long straight lines and over or under running where I want to go because I am horrible at guessing where my needle/target is under the presser foot. I know that no one machine will do everything I want to do but I want a fairly versatile machine to start with and then pick up a 227R or similar cylinder arm medium duty machine that's capable of running 207 or better thread. I would like to get a machine in the next month so please help me understand what is going on, the pros and the cons. If you know of a good article, post or video link it or pm me. Thanks I need all the help I can get.
  19. Looking at many industrial sewing parts I can see they are all made from the same casting with minor differences in machined surfaces. For example, feed dogs may have the holes drilled in a slightly different location or the feeding surfaces may be wider or shorter for different tasks/machines. I bought a Consew 146RB and there are some tasks it just doesn't handle well. Rather than machining complete parts for it out of billet, does anyone have a source for raw castings? I'd love to just machine a few feed dogs, feet and maybe laser cut some plates to match so I can just sew up 100 of the parts I need and then reconfigure the machine to do something different.

  20. Adler 167-GK373 $1200

    I'm selling my Adler 167-GK373 Asking $1200 Great working condition. Only reason I selling is to upgrade to something that will sew thicker materials with heavier threads Brand new Reliable 6000SM Servo Motor Table is solid wood I live in Bryan TX. If interested contact me and we can discuss shipping options.
  21. Hello, I have a question regarding feed dogs marking leather. I have a Pfaff 335 sewing machine with walking foot feed. On softer leather the feet marked it as well but I solved that by gluing thin leather on the bottom of the feet. I still have issues with the bottom feed dog marking the leather. It's smooth, without teeth and it moves only horizontally (maybe just a little bit vertically but it is a negligible amount - 0.05mm). What it does is it leaves a line, which can't be rubbed off, on the bottom side of the leather. First I thought this is because the plate covering it was slightly higher than the feed dog so I sanded it down to the same height. This however didn't solve the issue. Are there any solutions/workarounds to this? Many thanks, Jakob

  23. I really need some help. My old Rex 11-155R has been working Great for years. It sat idle for a few months and then when I went out to the shop to do a job...The Stitch it made was almost 3/8" long and the Adjustment Knob would NOT work. Knob functions as designed but...Stitch Length remains at 9mm or bigger. I removed the top and back access plates as well as the Knob assembly and for the Life of me cannot figure out how it is supposed to work. I searched the interior of the machine and found NO broken pieces and could not see where the Pointed End of the knob or the shaft came in contact with any other moving parts. Does anyone know how this thing works and why it is no longer working. Took it to a repair shop and it sat for 10 days and no one even looked at it. Got mad and went and picked it up and took these pics hoping someone on here might know the answer. I've done the timing in the past, Replaced the entire hook etc.. and as I said it was working fine. Now...NADA!!!! HELP!!!!!
  24. Hi there, I have a Sailrite flatbed LSZ-1 heavy-duty sewing machine that I've been playing with and even with the leather pressure foot I'm seeing marks left on my veg tan leather I've tried playing with the pressure foot force with the tension thumb screw up top but it's still leaving marks. Any suggestions? Thank you!
  25. Hi folks, As a new member to the forum, I need to send out a big thanks to the people who post here, members and sponsors alike. It is an info-packed resource, unique on the web for the breadth of knowledge. Any used machine I was curious about could be googled and something from this site would come up. Without the budget to pick up a 441 or 205 style, I recently came across a Singer 16-141 for a price I could afford, and I am pretty excited to get it working. But I could not find any posts specifically on this walking foot machine. Most are for the 16-188, which seems a little different in the walking mechanicals. So I figured I would start a new thread. While I know the L bobbins it takes are pretty common, and parts are generally available, one item I would like to add sooner than later is a roller edge guide. I found the instruction manual and part list, but the roller guide is made up of a dozen individual parts or sold as an assembly. Is there an aftermarket solution that may work better? I had heard good things about the flip-up (rather than bed mounted) style, so am open to recommendations. http://www.download-service-manuals.com/download.php?file=Singer-7331.pdf&SID=s6c7uqiumju8aj9s8t6l0o7f66 http://parts.singerco.com/IPpartCharts/16-137_141.pdf Thanks in advance Bill
