    Needles for JUNKER & RUH SD 28

    Thanks Brian, i have just messaged the op,s. Quiet day at work?.hehe.
  5. I bought one about a month or so back( my second one) and still the same with the 50 mm pulley. Just ask for Aussie plug and they give you a convertor plug. There is a guy selling servo motors on facebook in Australian leathercrafters forum for 300. could be a better bet as covered by Aussie warranty.

    question on leather hide

    the marks are caused by the toggles/clamps used when hanging and stretching the hides on wire frames to dry.

    Best Thread for tippmann boss

    Hi Forester, have a look at Abbey England site, they seem to have a good range of threads for leather. Alternatively ring them and have a talk, ive been in there twice now and really friendly people to talk to and ask questions.

    Singer 269 Tacker Motor

    Hi , sorry if I am hijacking. Eric could you tell me if a squirrel motor would be suitable for a sewing machine. I had a sparky tell me this type of motor would work but I don't think he understood the torque/ speed aspect of sewing machines. could one of these type motors be made to work ok. thanks;
