    List of Members sewing machines

    I learned on a Pro-2000 but currently used at my work ( tack repair) a Ferdinand 900b set up with 207/277 poly. I have in my own shop at home two Ferdinand 900b one set up for 138/207 and the other with 207/277 all the machines have clutch motors. I also have a Juki DNU1541 which I put a servo and speed reducer on a year ago. I love the fact that it will crawl. Most of my work is tack repair.

    Restoration Decals

    I have some Ferdinand Inc. decals available. These are high quality 3m vinyl reproductions. I had them made for my 900b Bull and have extras. $10 each.

    What to do with a 10-ft long strap?

    I didn't know that a hide could be 10 feet long?

    Bridle Leather Sheath

    I thought the same. The cleaver has some really nice detailed work.
  8. I was asked to make a sheath for this cool cleaver. Not really my thing but this is what I came up with. I used 8oz bridle and decided on a button instead of a snap. There is definitely room for improvement. But it's all fun

    What kind of leather should I use for tack making?

    I use Wicket & Craig or Sedgwick bridle leather for my English tack work. 9/10 oz. And split it if I need something lighter.

    Something New For My Shop

    I been in need of a stand for my shop. One that would hold saddles that I am working on or waiting to be worked on. I didn't want some cheesy stand. I searched the wide web for just the right stand. I finally decided it didn't exist. What to do? Make it myself. So I found a cheap treadle and repurposed it. I scrubbed the base with a wire brush and painted it. Then went to forming the top. This is what I came up with. Thought I was done and decided it needed a drawer.

    Using Wax Lube Pot on a 441

    My Bull came with a lube pot. I had a problem with the thread heating up and fraying. So I purchased some silicone lube from Weaver thinking it would help. I would agree with Colt, it was messy when I ran the machine. Seemed like there was a lot of excess lube in the tread.
