    Skiving Machine Table and motor

    OP appears to be in the Washington DC area. @xlr8tn would be a good idea to put your location in your profile so you can get help related to the area you live in. That is a Consew machine. Their office is at: 400 Veterans Blvd., Carlstadt, NJ 07072 Phone: (212) 741-7788 They or sewing machine dealers listed in the ads at the top of this page can supply tables and motors. (Refresh to see more ads.) Make sure to tell them what it is for so they can supply the proper setup. Tom

    Leather razor case

    Do a google search; "leather safety razor travel case". Click on images. Lots of examples and places to buy from including ebay, amazon, etc. I once had a nice set. Like a zipped folder with razor, brush, soap, mirror, comb, nail file, etc. That is the style I would pick, but there are many out there. Some very simple, just a pouch for the razor. You could make a simple pouch in an hour. Tom

    Sealing leather

    Pro Oil dye is now called Pro dye. So called oil dyes are not oil based. They are solvent based and have some oil added to the concoction. Solvent based infers use of a solvent like alcohols. Other option is water based. The stronger the solvent used in your finish, the more likely to see it lift some of the dye, especially water based dyes. USMC black is the worst for lifting and spreading. Good for fixing the toes on your boots, then applying boot polish (wax) over top. Your finished wallet looks very nice. Keep it away from white shirts. Solvent based dyes will penetrate most finishes. It will not be as dark as it would with bare leather. Could take more coats to arrive at same depth of coverage. Tom

    Saddlery training?

    @MasterSaddlerKate Moved your post to "General Saddlery Discussion". Hope this gets the response you are looking for. "Help wanted" is like the classified ads looking for work, or looking to employ someone. All posts in Help wanted have to be approved before they become visible to all. Tom

    227R is basically the same as a Techsew 2700 machine. My 2700 does well for most of what I do. Tom

    Singer 17-23 Roller foot position ?

    I would expect it needs to be placed over the feed dogs. Left or right. If you are trying to sew something that won't fit between the needle and the body of the machine, for stitching an edge, you will likely need to mount the roller foot on the left (outside). For double roller feet, when stitching an edge, you will need to raise the empty side roller off the feed dogs. Tom
