    Letter Press / Imprint Machine

    Tandy Imprint Machine 32418-00 Barely Used Machine in excellent condition. From Tandy "This item 32418-00 is made with a solid steel body and is of the finest industrial quality. It is an excellent tool to do repetitive leather work with clean, deep sharp impressions with alphabet and 3D stamps. " This is a great machine for small scale production work and will help with consistency in your lettering and 3d stamping. It's in great condition and shows very little signs of use. They are out of production from tandy anymore and the only new one's I can find to compare to are on ebay for $479. I'm asking $375 plus shipping (it weighs 26 lbs and will ship from 75098, Wylie Tx) I'm also open to trades or cash plus trades. Or you can take your chances on ebay with it http://www.ebay.com/itm/281590484546?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 the reserve on ebay is set at $325.

    Bottom Stitch Issues

    Thank you Master, I will heed your advice and continue to focus on the needed adjustments as I focus on using the force.

    Bottom Stitch Issues

    Thanks Wiz. When you say the next size needle, do you mean bigger or smaller? Also, since we're talking needles, I forgot to ask why the hole the needle makes look so sloppy on the bottom side. If that doesn't make since, I will post a pic shortly. Thanks, Ferg
  6. I have a new to me Cobra Class 4, I messaged Steve but I figure he's pretty buried up getting things together to go to the boot and saddle show in Wichita Falls Tx this weekend. I'm having issues with the bobbin thread stitches. They don't look as clean as the top, like the top thread isn't pulling up enough. So I figure the top thread needs an increase in tension. Is there a method other than trial an error to adjust the tension for different thicknesses of leather? How do I check the bobbin thread tension? By that I mean, is there a standard setting it should be at. The other issue is my feed dog leaving marks in my leather. I have adjusted the nut and spring bolt all the way out, but it still marks on as little as 6oz of leather. Is there another adjustment I'm missing?
  7. Nothing? I did say Or Best Offer.... lol, I know it's a Tandy piece and I'm willing to wheel and deal....

  9. I have two Tandy / Stohlman Round Knives For Sale or Trade $40 each OBO plus shipping or $70 plus shipping for the pair. I am open to trades, let me know what you have. They are Tandy item 35014-00 for the bigger one and 35017-00 for the smaller one. Both have very limited use and look brand new. I got them with a set of tools I bought and didn't need these.
  10. Ed, any plans for you or Beary to make the Wichita Falls tx show in October?
