    Need part for Chinese patcher

    Contact Bantam (the link you posted) showing him the picture and I am sure he will get you the correct part. That is where I buy all the spare parts for my patcher. Karina
  2. Mine just arrived today! In the process of getting all the grease off, filing down the rough edges, then on to the modifications. I got mine for $112 with free shipping. My intended use is sewing tooled leather patches onto the bills of caps - something I have been doing by hand up until I get this machine up and running. If it does not work out, it won't be a huge loss, and it was a heck of a lot cheaper than those big boy machines. Karina
  3. There is a Consew 206RB-5 for sale at Goodwill located in Colorado Spring, CO. Current bid is $29.00 bidding ends in 4 days. It is pick up only so if in the area and interested, you might want to give a look. Here is the auction site: Karina
  4. Nice job on the bag....I have that pattern also from Tony.

    Need adhesive to hold leather patches on hats..

    Clearly missed that part. Doing too many things at once I guess, I just looked at the picture he posted and saw that it wasn't sewn and off my mind went... Karina

    Need adhesive to hold leather patches on hats..

    I sew mine on by hand, quick and easy to do. I have read on another forum where someone stated they just used contact cement and have had no problems, but I just don't trust gluing alone, which is why I sew them. I am not saying it won't work, but I am think about years down the road, adding the stitching around it just makes me feel better. Karina
  7. I follow 95% of those listed, but thanks for doing this anyway. I am sure it will be very helpful to others. Karina
  8. This happened back in May in Sao Paolo, Brazil and the woman was an off duty military police officer,. She was at a school picking up her daughter when the guy tried to rob a group of moms. The date shows 12/5/2018 - in the USA we would read as May 12, 2018. Karina
  9. I read all the terms before bidding, and having to pick it up is not an issue at all for me. I bid on factory/business closeouts all over the country regularly. I am registered on at least 20 different auctions sites, so I know how this works. Of the three I am bidding on, I just hope I can at least win one, but I would surely take all three. Karina
  10. @JJN Thanks for the info, just placed my bid for a few, hope I get at least one. Karina

    3D printer recommendations

    Yes, it is possible with this machine and I have done both with success. I used my 3D printer all the time for this until I got my CNC machine. Now I make those items using HDPE and or Delrin that will hold up much, much longer, in a fraction of the time. My 3D printer is now used to make the odd part I need that I can't just go out and purchase. For what you are wanting to do, it will definitely do the job, and the learning curve is not too bad.

    3D printer recommendations

    I purchased an Anet 8, and after watching tons of videos and reading tons of post on the FB group page on what I needed to buy and or print to make the unit more sturdy/reliable I sold it and purchased a Monoprice Select 2 for about $250 off Amazon. Took less than 5 minutes to set up and I was printing my test print. Had it well over a year and no complaints. I don't have anything against kits, My CNC Machine was a kit. (X-Carve), but it just seemed like there was a ton of work and mods needed for the Anet 8 Kit and I just decided a plug an play would serve me better. YMMV Karina

    New Stitching Pony From Korea

    There is no mention anywhere in this thread of anyone saying they were copying his design. Oh please, if that's the case then everything anyone of us has ever made is copying someone's work, which isn't the case here. Where in this thread did anyone say anything about reverse engineering? If this was an original Idea or concept I could understand why someone would get upset, but there are so many images in old leather working books and on google of stitching ponys attached to tables, whose to say this guy didn't get his inspiration form one of those. So does the same apply to him because he made one "similar" to others already on the market or currently being used? This type of design first landed on my radar years ago and it is made by Sheridan called the Colt Stitcher. I decided then I wanted one - but a modified one for my specific needs. I forgot about that until I saw another one clamped to a table last year, and it wasn't even this one, it was the one made by Elfita. Because I have a shop full of tools, and the skills to make one, that is what I decided to do. For the last 3+ years I have simply been laying my stitching pony on it's side and using an Irwin quick clamp to clamp it to my work table. Last year when I saw the Elfita clamp I decided it was time to upgrade that. So I opened up my design software and started engineering/designing one - I just haven't finished it. (a process which is very different from reverse engineering btw.) Karina

    New Stitching Pony From Korea

    If you read and understood my post I clearly stated I was making one SIMILAR! Not a knock off of yours. You are not the first person to make a stitching pony that attaches to a table, and I sure won't be the last to try this. I am not making a copy of your design. Make no mistake, the design I come up with will be MY design, and if I choose to sell it or give it away, that is my right. Karina
