  1. I have a JACK 550 watt servo from College sewing on my 335, works great
  2. If the thread is bunching up under the material it is the top thread tension that must be tightened
  3. The saddle is made in Uttar Pradesh, India. It is junk and should never be on a horse. I bought 4 of those cheap saddles ( used) just to see what was inside. My advise is to throw it in a garbage container. Some photos: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Old-Timers-sadelsida-213225115376738/photos/?tab=album&album_id=722074604491784

      thanks pete

  5. Is it the part in the pic at far right that is worn and makes stitches shorten by wear?
  6. Is this the part that regulates the stitch length ?
  7. Do you have a pic of the part named bell crank?
  8. A couple of years ago I found an article on the web how to refurbish a 29 K machine, to repair a worn part that determines the stitch lenght I can´t find the article again . Anyone ? / OldTimer
  9. A Cobra class 26 is the clone of a JUKI 341, a better choice than a 335, IMHO
  10. Does anyone have the email adress to Ron´s tools ?
  11. I bought a no name JUKI 441 clone from a Chinese company, built a machine from chinese parts, i e motor , speed reducer and all. IIt was perfectly functioning from day one, no extra set ups needed, I have used it in my saddlery for more than a year, and I get a smile on my face every time I use it!
  12. Make a bottom cover, and a top cover, Glue and sew the pieces together. Then make the neck cover with a piece that reaches the center of the horn, glue the top, drill a small hole for the screw and insert the screw, then cover the neck with the wings of the neck cover.
  13. Use your straight edge as it is, scratch a line with an awl and then cut along the scratched line with a round knife. The proper way to do it!
