  1. You have the EZ Edger priced $20 higher than brand new from Weaver
  2. Many skiver manufacturers already make roller feet and have them readily available for purchase. Many manufacturers feet are interchangeable on many other manufacturers’ machines. Talk to Ron Kay at RSK Sales (formerly Melanie Machine Co) they specialize in slivers of all brands and ages and would most likely be able to help you 818-468-0579 i have always found them to be very knowledgeable and helpful.

  5. I have one, by Brother. Previous owner stored it outside, so I am cleaning off the rust and restoring it. I hope to be op your way in November, and could drop it off if you can wait that long. Will send pics when I get out to my storage and get some work done on it.
  6. I will buy it today, if it is still available.
  7. looks like a smooth pear shader twisted randomly between each strike
  8. What size/type of smaller machine are you interested in? I have a Consew 225 or a couple of other walking foot machines I am willing to part with.
  9. Melanie Machine Co. are the masters of all skiving machines in Southern California. Talk to Arnold Kay. Very helpful and very knowledgeable. 818-515-3064
  10. Aerin, We should talk. My own shop is about 1.5 hours drive from you, but we could meet and I can give you some pointers. I can also put you in touch with some costumers and designers I know in LA, and I have a good friend who has a fashion degree and designs in leather and metals in Portland that I would be happy to introduce you to as well. Send me a PM so we can set up a meeting. Cheers, Logan
  11. Definitely a patch machine. Looks like a Bradbury to me
  12. Excellent site! Thank you. This is a huge help
  13. Does anyone have parts for a Singer 132k6? I bought one for a great deal on Ebay, and even after I told the seller ho to pack the head so it could be shipped safely, he let the folks at his local UPS store do it. They put it in a single walled cardboard box , no ply wood under it to support it, and they thought that styro peanuts would be enough to keep this 97 pound machine fro knocking around in its box. When I received it, the box was smashed up, and a part of the machine as protruding through a hole in the box. There were a total of 16 breaks in the cast iron,, 3 more cracks started, and the thread lube pot was broken off & its rod was bent. The foot tension screw was pretty smashed up too. If anyone has a hand/balance wheel for one of these, let me know, and let me know how much you want for it. The rod that drives the feed dog is broken in several places too, so I am looking for one of those as well. Fortunately I have a very talented machinist who can weld cast iron, does an excellent job and guarantees his work, but welding cast iron is difficult and involved, and therefore expensive, so if I can get replacement parts, that would probably be better. Speaking of which, if anyone has damaged machines out there, don't write them off, he is very skilled at welding cast iron, and I would be happy to put you in touch with him. He is in Murrieta, CA.
