Adler 30-7

Recommended Posts

Just thought I should introduce myself. My name is Steve, and I live in Cheyenne, Wyoming. My wife picked up an Adler 30-7 a couple weeks ago from her sisters husband. It was a bit stiff and lacking a few parts. I've been going thru it, and have it turning quite nicely now. As far as parts it was missing the leaf spring and sliding block. Also missing was the bobbin winding tire, the bobbin, the needle and the belt. The shuttlehook also looks a bit iffy, with the hook point broken off. So I have located parts all over the world and have parts on the way, so for now it's a waiting game. The leaf spring assembly is coming from Poland, so that part wins awards for traveling the furthest. ;)

The machine came with a Singer cast iron stand, so the machine doesn't fit on the stand very well. I've designed up an adapter to make the two mate up, but got to thinking that maybe someone on here has a Singer machine and an Adler stand. In which case they may like to work out a stand swap. So let me know if you fit in that category.

Meanwhile I have come across a very nice trouble-shooting guide from Shoe Systems Plus that has come in very handy for going thru the machine. That along with all the information I've learned from the forum's on here has the machine looking pretty good. I'm looking forward to getting enough parts to see how the machine performs. I'm not entirely sure what the wife's intentions are for the machine, but I have a few ideas of my own. B)

More to come...........Steve

Welcome Steve. Photos are always nice, then people can see what you're referring to with the stand.:)

Yea, I like pictures too, so I suppose I'd better post a couple. The pictures are of the Adler 30-7 machine, and the Singer 29-4 stand. The size problem I'm facing is the Adler base is about 11 inches long, and the Singer stand is made for a base about 8 inches long, so the Adler feet stick out over the stand a couple of inches. I have designed an adapter plate to make up those 2 inches, but it would be nice to have the regular stand. I've sandblasted and powder-coated the stand, so it's looking really nice. Next project on the stand will be a new drawer for it. I'm still waiting on the Post office to deliver my parts. They can't seem to make up their mind as to what date they'll be delivering them. I think the day off Weds for the funeral during the busiest shipping month of the year was not an especially great idea.

Anyway I'm sure once I get the parts I'll have questions and a few more pictures, Steve

Now I can see what you mean. That stand looks really nice, it would be a shame not to use it (I don't know how easy it would be to find a genuine Adler stand). If it will work with an adapter plate then I reckon you should give it a try.

Steve,

I wish I had known you were looking for parts.  I have most of the parts you are seeking as well as the original stands for Adlers.   You can use big bobbin hook and bobbins from Singer big bobbin machines.  I new genuine hook from Adler is about $234.00 and change.  Generic Singer  hooks will work in this machine.   A lot of pats for the 30-1, 5, 7, 15 are no longer available.  Let me know if I can be of any assistance.

I forgot to tell you I have drawers for your Singer stand.  I had then made here in the US by an Amish drawer maker.  These are to the original specs, dovetailed and unfinished so you can either seal or stain it.  Your choice.
