  1. Appears so... Quite a lot of variants.. Critical parts missing.. I have paid less for a well worn machine ... and a heck of a lot more for a good one. Compare

    97x4 needles

    I'll take them
  4. I purchased this one off Luke yesterday.. thanks! Shuttle issues .. different shuttle and it sews (That makes 5 of these stitchers..lol! funny.. not funny if I have to move house )
  5. I'm not going to remove the take-up tension mechanism to show details ..but I'm restoring a 7-33 at the moment and this is what it looks like inside behind the discs
  6. And the thread take-up spring looks like this
  7. Already posted a photo...2 pages back .. But here is another closer view
  8. aah .. rusty iron.. incurable addiction.. . Just chiming in as I'm just about to start on a Fortuna skiver restore ... This I need to actually do some work with.. (who am I kidding ).. the other skiver -a "Forma" needs work on the knife worm gear and a bearing replacement..but not much to do. Watching on your progress!
  9. Are they tri - point needles? Curious as I have some (794 system) not put through their paces yet...held for a particular job.
  10. As requested.. As shown this is heavily worn but is an insert plate so can be replaced (on the todolist .. about 32 down...lol.. second skiver resurrection is 1st)
