  1. Nice! I heard you can smooth the surface of the ABS plastic with aceton, does it work
  2. Hi, I have had several requests for service manuals for old Pfaff 345 and 335 machines. So here is what I have avaiable for these machines. For the Pfaff 345 here is a download link to the partlist, subclass list and service manual, link is valid for 30 days. For the new 335 casting machine you are supported by Pfaff industrial For the old 335 you can use this general service manual for several similar contruction Pfaff classes. The old service manuals are without pictures and many terms can be difficult to understand. However, the new 335 service manual is good illustrated and can be used as a reference in addition to the old. Just change the parameters to the correct ones from the old manuals. I hope this will help. Thanks Tor

  4. Hi Trox, I recently bought PFAFF 345-H3-6/01 CLN. I saw the post that you answer and help other people and also share the service manual of PFAFF 345. If you don't mind, could you share it with me please? Thank you so much for your help.

    Help Identifying Tools

    Round knife looks like a Gomph, Blanchard alo used the same ferule but mostly on their plough knifes..Most likely a Gomph.. But if you wire brush/clean the tools you would see the maker stamps on them and be able to identify them.
  9. And I love those plates too, using them for my creasing machine table I'm building soon.

    Hello Trox,

    I read that you have a Service Manual for a Pfaff 345. I recently bought an OLD Pfaff 345 VR 132 B S for about 13 Euro :-)))

    It works fine (except that the Feed Dog has no Teeth at all and is smooth as baby skin) but it is s beatuy. Since I have to clean all parts, some kind of manual would help. I already asked in Pfaff Germany (I live in Austria) and they can't support me anymore ...

    BTW: An old black Pfaff 335 VR 132 B H2 S ia also coming my way :-))

    TIA and greetings from Austria.

  12. Sorry, I now see its an old add, just curious about the brand of it, thanks
  13. Hi, is that plough gauge sold yet? Does it have that same tassel mark on the plough as on the knife. Thanks

    Makers Mark & Hot Foil Machine in UK

    Im currently restoring a UK made John Marshall hotfoil press, changing wires and making a table with guides for leather etc. I' looking for a cheap supplier of heat conducting double sided tape.. for taping brass and magnesium stamps to machine head. Regarding the above post, I don' find it difficult to find suppliers of stamps, but I have trouble producing the required data files they want for the disign. I got some tips about software used to design, but I find this very difficult to do....I have a enough projects...I do not want to spend months learning to use crappy computer programs...tried them on Android ( the platform I use for now) and they are very difficult to use and draw on....Every stamp manufactory just want to cnc or or cast from computer vectors.....No wonder the Stamps are cheap. I would like to draw up on a piece of paper what I want and have a company to smoohing up/editing and make my finished stamp. I have aways used computers since the 1980, but the programs the stamp manufacturers recommnd on android ist a pain in the ......Simplector Pro.. It goes like every other modern program, (the new trend) they want to slim program down but all they do in the process is removing possibilities......make it more difficult crappy mobile websites.....I never though this long lasting hotfoil press project of mine would be stalled by a program...
