  1. Hold it in a flame briefly (match or lighter), the little leather plug will crawl out like a worm.

  9. Nope! None better than the Cobra, some nearly as good, but none better! by the way your work is great! Paul
  10. I have used a Cobra 18 for several (many) years. It will sew 3/8" all day everyday. My main use with it now is 69thread through and 18 needle, but I have sewed many miles using 138 when making chaps and chinks. It is a great machine I endorse it completely.
  11. I think what you want done would be better accomplished with a Lap skiver. They look for all intents and purposes like an ordinary "pull through splitter". They start out at the original thickness and then progressively dig deeper until you stop and you get even skive from side to side.
  12. Boy, if I have ever seen a solution looking for a problem, this is a classic example. Force, movement,....who cares? I just want my machine to sew correctly when I turn it on and to start and stop when I say Go and Whoa. Now before anyone gets their feelings hurt, the foregoing is just my personal opinion and is not intended to sway anyone one way or the other, or criticize others for their opinions. I'm a believer in the old "If it ani't broke, don't try to fix it" camp and my Cobra machines have been (with servo motors) sewing just dandy since I brought them into the shop. Good luck! Paul
  13. It is most likely the Rose Parade in conjunction with the New Year's Day Rose Bowl.(Amercian football) The parade usually had many fancy equestrian riders almost all of which sported Bohlin or Bohlin type parade saddles and tack. It is a long standing annual event.
  14. Pepin, my friend, I am sorry to hear of this, particularly at your young age>. (I am 85, very soon to be 86). I have admired your work for many years and I still have those two marvelous scribes you sent me as a gift. I wish you well! I look forward to your eBay link . Paul
