  1. Hi Rickard, did you try not going around the tension disk 1 1/2 times??? this helped me on a 45k.
  2. ...I think wiz is on the right track but i have no clue either, what i do know is if you want to treadle one then better hope it has the original treadle base with it
  3. Hi There, have a look at this post Brissy you might find something?
  4. Nice work Woehlk! well done, its coming along gr8....
  5. I tend to do the minimum in that sense because if things get stuck and the casting breaks then you start thinking.. why did i want to take that part off if it was working Ok!!!
  6. Thanks....The worst part was getting the box with the black 335 with all the parts rattling inside and full of holes!!! the rest is just taking lots of pictures and trial and error, but i did not take the main shaft out so you will have to remember where it all goes afterwards its looking good!.... and they are great machines for wallets!
  7. Hi Woehlk and welcome, very nice machine there, the paint looks very good on your machine, if it was mine i would not repaint it but that is just my opinion. Have a look at this post, this could maybe help a little.
  8. Yeah these are monsters!! I imagine parts would be hard to find and needles probably expensive too?
  9. 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
  10. Great to hear you got it going again
  11. 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"}
  12. if it is new, I would say if it is still in guarantee then have them fix it??
  13. 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!
