  1. I would like to express my gratitude to Ryan and his team at Neel's Saddlery and Harness in regards to the above-standard service I have received. Ryan has shown me that there is still respect, honesty, and fairness in today's world. If anyone out there in the leather world is looking for a leather sewing machine or the leather accessories, make this man your first call! -- without a doubt the best! Being from Canada this has to be one of, if not the best experience, I have had with cross border shopping, especially for a big ticket item. Thanks Again Ryan O Neel Neel's Saddlery and Harness Ryan O Neel (owner) 12712 South Avenue North Lima, OH 44452 Tel: + 1 (330) 692 1418 E-mail: neelre@comcast.net

  3. Thanks Steve for your help. that is what I have done but I seems to have hard time pulling the bobbin thread into the middle of 6-7 oz. leather. I'm thinking I will put a smaller size in the bobbin and play with the tension on top to solve that problem. I replaced the tensioner unit on top because the old ones was broken in a few places but this new one seems maybe not give me the proper tension that I think I need, not sure. I was told by the store I purchased it that if I was to file a tiny bit off the little pin that are inside the tensioners hollow bar, that the tension disks slide onto that this would increase my tension. I'll play now that I know what my max. needle and thread are and once again thanks for your help. Darryl
  4. Can anyone please give info on the Singer 212 G 104. Like to know about the leather thickness this machine likes to sew and tread size the machine can handle and needle sizes. any info would help a lot because this is my first machine and I'm a newbie at sewing machines in general. I downloaded a users manual but not a whole lot of info in it.
