    getting tired of hand stitching...

    Add it to your profile so everyone becomes aware. Else you get offers from the UK or elsewhere! I see from your IP address that you are at Lacombe. So Leighton's is relatively close to you. Tom

    CLOSED SHOP

    I would suggest that people would like to know where in the world they would be buying from and of course have some idea of the related shipping costs and time in transit. Also nice to know what part of eBay your listing will likely turn up on. There is no intended slight to you or anyone else. Just makes good business sense to know where you are dealing. Tom

    Best strap cutter?

    Haven't cut myself yet with a draw gauge, but have with the wooden strap cutter. I was squeezing the bars that hold the blade together to fit thinner leather. The knife came up through the top bar and bit me! Now there is a piece of leather glued over the top and bottom bars as a warning and for protection in case I didn't learn the lesson the first time. For the draw gauge, grind the point off, grind it to a good radius. You won't be using that top 1/4" anyhow and helps prevent accidental cuts if left sit upright. I've heard of fellows cutting their wrist reaching for something on the other side of the knife. Mine has a special place in a drawer and sits upside down, point down. Tom

    Pressure foot issues with Cowboy 3200

    My guess is not the foot itself, but the balance between the inner and outer feet. I doubt that the foot is too long. There are others here more expert than I am. Tom

    Pressure foot issues with Cowboy 3200

    Did you buy from a dealer or second hand? If from a dealer, you should be seeking help from them. This machine should have been sewen off before being sold to you to prove it was adjusted correctly. Tom
