    What is this thread on hand presses?

    Could be this one but not 100% sure. it is UNS. Best way is to get hold of a thread guage. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lots-1pc-HSS-Machine-1-4-24-UNS-Plug-Tap-and-1pc-1-4-24-UNS-Die-Threading-Tool-/162544431108
  3. Hi bikermutt, I have used the edge paint on a couple of projects on oiled calf and saw no problems with it. The paint was Giardini.

    Singer 45K25 Roller Foot

    You could try the clone type machines GA5-1 https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-GA5-1-GA5-1R-Roller-Foot-Cowboy-CB2500-Techsew-3650HD-/321787316620 or this one which is more like the original ones.https://www.ebay.ie/itm/221448164280 or you could try and find an original Singer one, (which are hard to find) or one from an Adler,Seiko,Claes or Hurtu who all had similar models to the 45k25 or flatbed 45k1.
  6. That is why i put up the pictures

    Maybe you could try finding or making one of these. they were made for making shoe laces.
  8. These pictures are to show the way the machine is correctly threaded according to the pfaff manual. The thread does not go around the pin in the illustration. I would go for what wiz suggested.

    Thanks Stor, that looks good and slow. I have had this on my list for a while now also, maybe get around to doing it one day. the jack is also a little too fast for me.

    Junker & Ruh S.D. 28 Sole Stitcher

    I was asking Casemaker, the guy with the protos machine, if it was broken=Knackered.

    Junker & Ruh S.D. 28 Sole Stitcher

    Id love one of them....very cool machines. Is yours knackered then casemaker?? Sieck would probably have parts for them but maybe not too willing to sell them as they use them for refurbishing other machines. Here is the machine in action if anyone was wondering how it stitches and what it can do??....https://www.instagram.com/nystromsthlm/
  14. Maybe it would be a good ides to skive that transition area??
