Singer 7-33

Johnboy Richter here, I am new and would like to ask if anyone has any experience with the many diferent sizes of needles for the Singer 7-33. I have a needle on it (but I think it is for canvas ) and could take it to a local sewing store if I were home. ( I work off shore ) I looked all over the internet tryng to find cross reference charts and or specific needles for sale and could not make any sense of it. I have a GA5-1 and it does well but it does not have a walking foot and I dont want

Problem With Brand New Adler 205-370

Hello All, I'm new to this forum, and would like to seek some help/guidance from other Adler 205-370. Earlier this year, I purchased one of the last new 205-370 available from Michel Simard in Montreal. From the very beginning, I've had issues with the stitch-length, or should I say the symmetry of the stitch-length in forward vs reverse. I was told it was normal that the machine would not back-stitch in its holes, when adjusting the rotating knob on the lever. To ensure same stitch-length i

Skiving Machines

Ok, I've been looking for a good skiving machine for a long time. I finally found one, but now I need to get a table and motor for it. Please do not tell me to contact campbell-randall. That's just not going to happen. I don't feel like getting into a long, drawn out discussion about it, so I will not do so here. I have read on here that people have used two separate motors for these machines...one to run the knife at one speed of their choice.....and the other motor to run the feed mechanism

Anyhow, I moved back to Saskatchewan and am setting up a new saddle shop in our place here. It's almost done. I'll post pictures as soon as I get it wrapped up. We have been doing lots of riding and have had a chance to go to quite a few brandings as well as pasture rope. It'd been nice to really use the first saddle I built - It seems to work prett

Does anyone know of a monthly or quarterly leather working magazine. I have been looking around but so far no luck. I was hoping that I would find one like the Wooworkers magazine but as I said no luck. Please let me know if you know of one. Thank You Tony W
