  1. Yeah these are monsters!! I imagine parts would be hard to find and needles probably expensive too?
  2. Yes Silvered, I think they had the 1,2 and 3 needle option, there was a catlouge i think somewhere on here with the models? Great job on the case by the way...looks amazing
  3. Great to hear you got it going again
  4. That´s a pity, this seller in the link has a few parts for that type of machine by the looks of it so if you find out what parts is failing or worn etc you could probably find one here. It could be the lever is worn and with a file it could work again but i am just guessing?? https://es.aliexpress.com/item/33007431081.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.0.0.1da03bbdYPb8uN&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreThisSeller&scm=1007.13339.169870.0&scm_id=1007.13339.169870.0&scm-url=1007.13339.169870.0&pvid=fa0a5ab2-8c8d-4373-ae60-c4956eb54720&_t=gps-id:pcDetailBottomMoreThisSeller,scm-url:1007.13339.169870.0,pvid:fa0a5ab2-8c8d-4373-ae60-c4956eb54720,tpp_buckets:668%232846%238115%232000&pdp_ext_f={"sceneId":"3339","sku_id":"67002099300"}
  5. if it is new, I would say if it is still in guarantee then have them fix it??
  6. Hi There, I had a issue on a 171, when i got it the thread would just mangle under the needle plate, in the end i put the old shuttle carrier back on, which had a corner broken and the previous owner swapped out with a non original, and problem solved!
  7. Sorry, just as i thought, none in my lot here i am afraid toxo.
  8. Hi There, Just a guess.....it looks to me like the thread it pretty thick for that machine so you might be at it´s limit?? I would try another thread a little smaller and see if you get the same results. I have a Pfaff 335 and used nº20 thread to see if it would sew it and it did but i felt it was at it´s limit and it was soft leather.
  9. I have NO space left in this room so some reclaimed gutters came in handy for me.....Yeah i know....i could have painted little animals on them or something but.....nah next time maybe...

    Yes they are all the same one and a knife from Ali costs about €20 i think, maybe someone here has this 801 type model and can say what they are like performance wise??
  11. Hi Glenn, I have a plain drawer on the 29k171 also and have seen a few of them on the newer 29k´s, you must have missed them
  12. Hi Toxo...Yes....Here in Spain there is a well known maker called Waldes...yes the Koh-i-noor one....the lady with the button on her eye logo... They have been in Barcelona since 1928 i think and are still making snaps, rivets etc but they only sell boxes of Min 1000, I use them but don´t think i have any capped posts, i will have a look. You can download their catalouge from their website. For example a box of 8100/5 14mm diameter is approx....€42-46 and the 8020 the same...add Vat, postage etc..
