  1. Past hour
  2. Yes and roofs, It does take longer and depending on what you are doing you may look like you need a blood transfusion with all the free-flowing blood Or someone beat you up with all the brushing. Yes there is and I feel for those.
  3. I know things keep people down , Thing is there might be something that you can do to still push on hopefully.
  4. Thank you all for the kind words,
  5. Today
  6. Hm, I see Springfield reduced the price on the machine.

  8. Handstitched, if you've got a dr. that bulk bills consider yourself very lucky! We don't know any that do, they are (very) few and far between. My dr's clinic used to do it but they stopped sometime ago as they were losing money due to the pittance that the government re-imbursed them. Even with the recent increases from the government (first increases since medicare came in many years ago) they still can't afford to bulkbill because of all their other rising costs. In theory Medicare is a great system, in practice it's struggling, and guess why? The incompetence of successive governments.
  9. Yep here is that white leather I bought. I'm not sure what it is. Veg, chrome, or alum tan. But it does wet mold good. It also had a rough back side like veg-tan leather.
  10. Canadians have government medical coverage too. The most expensive part of my cancer treatment was the parking at the hospital. I even caught a break on that, as they made the parking free during the COVID pandemic! Prescriptions were covered too, as I'm a senior, though the pharmacy charges a small dispensing fee.
  11. I chased my butt on my 255 randomly cutting, fraying 138 thread, switched to a 23 and it never happened again. I sewed a boat cover with over 400 feet of stitching and the thread never gave me problems.
  12. Here's a video of the connecting rods moving around. Sorry for the poor video quality.....
  13. Yep, you read that right! My friends gave me their juki since they are moving away, brand new table, and a new Rex servo motor. The wife bought the machine 6 months ago, the guy never offered to sew with it, she just showed up, paid him, and left. The guy was considerate enough to load it for her, but, the numpty didn't take the head off the table. So as she pulled away it dropped out of the hole and fell down. That's the picture she sent me after it fell. It broke the tensioner, she replaced it. I turn the wheel and there's a bad stiff spot, I believe it's coming from inside the hand wheel area. I removed the cover on the top and I noticed the connecting rod bars move left to right along with the center drive shaft as the stiff spot shows up. I'm curious if the shaft is bent at the wheel, or if it bent at the front where the arms stick out. Anyone have an idea where to start with this? I might be able to put a dial indicator on the rear of the machine and see if the shaft walks. I'm not a juki guy so IDK to be brutally honest
  14. It’s always nice to wake up in the morning and still be on the green side of the grass, on the other hand sometimes there’s things worse then death.
  15. How do I move the post
  16. Hi fellow leather workers, could someone give me some advice on how to clean the leather handles on a Balenciaga purse ,the color is of white and dirty from constant use...
  17. I sent you a message. I've got the Scribd manual loaded, need your email address to send it on.
  18. I had no idea such a thing existed until I went into the store a few months ago, saw the alum tan, and thought, “What the heck is that?”
  19. Lol I knew nothing of leather when I bought that white leather for that pouch. I do know it wet formed good, cause I later made a phone case for another person. Turned out so good I made another 1 for a display model.
  20. I did obtain some #23 needles. I now have some Groz-Beckert chrome needles and then I found some Groz Beckert Gebedur Titanium needles. Ill try these out this week and let you know what happens. Its threaded properly.
  21. Hi all, i have once again acquires more sewing machines. A Local factory is closing and they are tearing it down and they used to make chairs and seats and had lots of machines for sale. A few months back, i bought a few Juki walking foot machines including a LU-563 and LUH-521 as well as a 47W66. I have since sold the LUH double needle machine but kept the other 2. I talked to the owner a few days back and he made me an offer i could not refuse on the last 3 machines he had for sale, an Adler 67, Mitsubishi dy-340 and a Singer 144W (20 in long arm and huge bobbins, this thing is a beast!) The Adler is missing some parts and i need replacements. I would really like to restore it and get it back in working order as its a really nice machine and is mostly complete. The hook was there and was rusty and stuck so i started cleaning it and got it free and started working on cleaning it up and realized the hook is just snapped off. I can find hooks online but they are over 200$! if that's what i have to pay, fine but still, it seems steep. I am also missing the slide plate on the right side as well as a set of feet. There are parts available, but some are harder to find like the slide plate. Hooks are pricey, feet are all over the place and seem cheaply made. I read somewhere on the forum that there is a mod to grind the foot bar to accept 111W style feet? Where do you guys get your parts for Adler machines? There is no dealers locally, there used to be one but they closed down Andre
  22. To that point, my local Tandy has some straight white alum tan for sale. I’ve seen chrome tan that’s already struck white.
  23. Yesterday
  24. I have bought some straight up white leather before. Had a customer wanting a pouch made of white leather.
  25. You can get 'recolourant' in white. Its sort-of a dye https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162520462757?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20201210111451%26meid%3D6a4d32fb227e4cba8efe8a95eb02f2f3%26pid%3D101196%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D380494665096%26itm%3D162520462757%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D4429486%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithBBEV2bAndUBSourceDemotionWithUltimatelyBoughtOfCoviewV1&_trksid=p4429486.c101196.m2219&itmprp=cksum%3A1625204627576a4d32fb227e4cba8efe8a95eb02f2f3|enc%3AAQAJAAABMKAGZatwWrSFioKhyF05YYps7xtgOI2Vu0BqB4BERv%2FNTfrUNkP50TZAJfREiGj7R%2BA2x2E5zTqSs43jfR6uCcmt8%2B%2BTUdobg9SfOq%2BIqjUBjAd9zeLEqk7XpCC82bZYhRbO0wtWimjXEQ59NhkBzfB93gBctfKjfQ%2FV7XltUSegpfTwzqztB3FNX463ZrcE9Pj3SgYDwjraqpQEGVEJjGcdyDxuI5fVkbvi%2B81HdXvxNDV2lQ%2F%2Br7oAnTrkmEa77LZ4dirWGSjxkdede3%2BjQl0mdqNQMbZhaRB3p6SP2UyF4%2B5LNGXBHqSrmLIP56%2BX6Ama7Uc4Njqq1BumTrtMwgQNmWvfCv6382G6NMFP2ieWMzjk1O9y0XgPqjS1b4SD9EbE0yVrrMIm9jBxQqGfkpY%3D|ampid%3APL_CLK|clp%3A4429486&itmmeta=01HVWAR8JH9YGRD6CS7C5XDWJ6 or https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/166024209145?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20201210111451%26meid%3D3407333b1e8d46a98bc37cc2614c177a%26pid%3D101196%26rk%3D8%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D162520462757%26itm%3D166024209145%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D4247815%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithBBEV2bAndUBSourceDemotionWithUltimatelyBoughtOfCoviewV1&_trksid=p4247815.c101196.m2219&itmprp=cksum%3A1660242091453407333b1e8d46a98bc37cc2614c177a|enc%3AAQAJAAABMKAGZatwWrSFioKhyF05YYps7xtgOI2Vu0BqB4BERv%2FNTfrUNkP50TZAJfREiGj7R%2BA2x2E5zTqSs43jfR6uCcmt8%2B%2BTUdobg9SfOq%2BIqjUB25YfaK6EwtQt3bK6LkMfM5oJhdj2NEo7HPfsj1QATdGzSV%2FRBtIZ%2F0SXEYMZ0Cf8NS3VWYXJKBIkDLsOz8Kwtjvn0cwk4ZTv5C75Prz3kWj1evMtln27wr0%2Fw20JmRoZC2RrC7%2FN%2BUFmlndu4Tomwcimkit8C7ZLSIWlf2q0L%2BzG0ALWnNa3udNghPvwU8StqPM3o4Ecr2M8hPGrrl5TPZHpgLz1KqpSNSbtbhOrkI2oFhbWoC1qOqu9YaL%2FohFdtixwL7hoA%2BhE2fKac%2BRF9MmpS3rU0X236tuGhFx4KcE%3D|ampid%3APL_CLK|clp%3A4247815&itmmeta=01HVWAY003ZPRBFJR4P0P6RT19
  26. Unfortunately, there isn't a white dye like there are for all the other colors available commercially that I am aware of. White Acrylic leather paint is your best option. If you can apply it with an airbrush all the better, as you can control the application over a large surface and its fairly quick compared to applying it by brush/sponge,etc
