    Former Rodeo Clown and Bullfighter! I’ve worked for Eli Rios when he was with Longhorn Boot Company in the early 80’s after my rodeo career I went into making Chaps. Made some and got credited in the movie 8 Seconds as well as All the Pretty Horses! Was one of the first people in the country to design and manufacture a bull riding vest!

    Landis #3 threading

    True, and I’ve played with the adjusting of that spring, but then the thread doesn’t come through the leather bottom like it should? This is an older polyester spool (5-6 years old) I got from Campbell. A 207... the 346 never did this?

    I need clicker help

    I kinda gave up on this thing... or put it on the back burner... speaking of which, I’m thinking of pulling a control knob/assembly from a stove and putting it into the place where this adjuster is and see what happens! What’s the worst that could happen? Lol I found a C model, but it’s trapped inside an old boot shop... they rebuilt the storefront and made it a single door... so they can’t get it out of the building!

    Singer 97-10 help

    The motor on mine is 1/2 HP and 1750 RpM’s! Make sure if getting a new one, that the output shaft fits the large pulley properly lubricated, the built in clutch works great! You can feather even thick leather! T

    Singer 97-10 help

    This has a built in clutch in the base... I’m not sure a servo would move this heavy of a flywheel?
