  1. i have had my cobra for 1 yr this month , has the same model motor as yours , also the speed controller works just like yours . the display on my motor displays rpm, i usually sew at 600 rpm. i noticed yours displays 1-?. probably some way to change display.

  2. Have that sucker master by friday. LOLbanana.gif

    when i received my cobra it was way out of time ,, steve walked me through timing it. took a little trial and error to get it right . mine doesnt have much variation in speed with the pedal , but i dont sew fast either. like you i was sewing on a tippmann. i was comfortable with a little more speed. hope you find a answer . i sew at around 600 rpm on holsters. little higher on belts i am sure steve will help you

  3. a couple of weeks ago i drove to springfield leather , wanted to personally select some hermann oak , great store and real nice sales people. i have ordered some things by phone before and service was great. but after a 5 hr. drive i was directed to 5 or 6 rolled up sides under a table full of mexican import hides. i didn't even bother to unroll them they were rolled so tight. was dissapointed to say the least but i guess i should have called before i left home. if you get a chance to go to springfield , it is a great place to visit and they are currently expanding . still managed to buy a few supplies i needed.

  4. i dont think most customers recognize the development process involved. even after purchasing a dummy it takes me three tries to get a holster where i am happy with it. i use cheap bellies for my trial fittings.i have my own guns and a few airsoft replicas i use for forming, i dont have a website , and make holsters to support my addiction . if i was full time builder i would invest in the blue gun and charge a small custom charge. dont think a customer would care about the extra charge

  5. o

    WHOO HOO! I hit the button with 2 times, said the magic swear words, and it is turning in the correct direction now.

    Thanks for the help, all!

    when i received my machine i was told to only change speeds with the motor running or it would change the direction of the motor. try to call steve at leather mach co. id bet he will answer, maybe he can explain

  6. had the same problem with mine , lifting leather, problem was tension and i oiled the machine as well. tension is easy to mess up and hard to get back i found out. i bought cheap bellies at tandy and cut into strips. quite a few went flying into the corner of my basement before i got the tension right. i decided i was going to get it right without bothering steve, probably a mistake but i learned a little. i had to readjust the timing several times and was afraid to tighten allen bolt too tight , but since i really cranked down on it it has stayed in time

  7. i had a boss and now have had my cobra for about 2 weeks. tippman gave me excellent service and walked me through any problems i might have had. most were caused by me. steve has also given me excellent service so far. that being said it sure is nice to have both hands free. cobra will go as slow as the boss if you turn the speed control down. also i will not have a machine without reverse. get the best machine you feel comfortable spending your hard earned dollar on

  8. We have an adult area on this site with biker flash (nudes and fantasy art), bondage gear (BDSM) topics and the some of the most tasteless, but funny, jokes on the internet. I can add other categories as you think of them. Okay, well, this area is growing, and anyone who wants access please send me a PM (private message) so that I can add you. The point of the adult area is for legitimate leatherwork conversation and sharing, even on the more risqué techniques and trade tricks of our leather art, without losing the main board's family friendly status. If you're a grown up, you're allowed in. If you change your mind and want the adult content part of the site invisible to you again, a PM will make it so. Just let me know.


    could you add me to the adult section please

  9. What are others using as a spacer on their IWB holster? I have been using some rubber grommets but cant find them now. Should have bought more.

    Anyway was wondering if there was a sight to order something in small amounts but cant really find anything. Checked McMaster-Carr and did a search but no luck.

    So I really was just wandering what others use and were you get them.

    I know Milt Sparks use a thick hard rubber spacer but nothing that thick in any search i made. Really dont want something super thick. 1/8 to 3/16th I think.

    This picture show what I'm talking about.

    Any info would be appreciated.



    if you live near a gasket shop they can make you lots of them if they dont have some in stock that will work

  10. i got mine last week, have not tried to sew yet, when you get yours have help around to mount the head to the table. its heavy

    I hope it clears customs in a timely manner. I am willing to bribe someone, although I'm not sure I would feel comfortable knowing that my measly bribe was enough to allow something to slip thru :blush: still, I am willing.
