    Zippers in bulk

    JLSleather, Shaka his eyes open! Is there any difference between pulls for metal or plastic teeth of similar size? OTB is having some fantastic sales on zipper tape and pulls.

    Embossing Machine And Rolls

    I saw his Etsy while trying to find a hand crank machine. Anyone have any recent leads on ones that aren't $900 shipped right out of China?

    Zippers in bulk

    Exactly. I have tools and have made minor repairs like replacing pills and teeth. I need to know how to match all the parts when ordering. I've always just bought complete zippers. Mods: if this isnt the correct place for this question, I'll move it.

    Zippers in bulk

    This my first time ordering zippers in bulk. What is the sorcery to know how match all the parts to make my own?

    Where to find more of this leather?

    Thanks. That looks like it. I just looked on the site but it didnt seem to be working. I'll try it later
  8. I picked up a double shoulder with a lot I bought. Its dyed thru black but the grain side is purple. I'd never seen stuff like that before, but honestly I never looked, if any one can point me in a direction thatd be great. If i can get in in brown or anything but purple itd be great for holsters and sheaths.

    Cowboy 3200 wont run

    JLSLeather, KISS principle is my usual go to. In this I'm certain I know next to nothing on the workings of the machine. Rather go on YouTube and really screw things up I'll ask ya'll.

    Cowboy 3200 wont run

    Sorry, I tired and frustrated last night. The machine was running fine then on the down stroke it stopped and the motor whined trying to get it to move. I checked to see if the needle was bent and it seems ok. I'm away from the shop but I'll get pix if they'll help.

    Cowboy 3200 wont run

    I have a Cowboy 3200 that wont stitch. I can move the hand wheel backwards but it just stops forward. No amount of force I want to try will make it go forward. I removed the boffin and retreaded the machine. I'm stumped... What needle and thread combination?
  12. I upgraded a machine I just bought from clutch to servo motor. Has anyone repurposed an old clutch motor and added a wood burnishing wheel?

    Sewing Kydex?

    Wizcrafts, In your experience is 1/8 kydex the standard for saddlebags? Also I stink at forum searches. Do you know a link with info on a Singer 112w140? I wanted to get it cleaned and set up before putting it to upholstery/garment work. No one in my area works on industrial machines. It runs good now but was used to make collegiate swag, webbing belts keyfobs and such.
