    Opinion on Adler 30-70

    Thanks so much I have experience with the singer patchers but not a big Adler. Makes good sense. Very helpful.

    Opinion on Adler 30-70

    Wiz I am going to look at the machine on Tuesday. It doesn’t have a needle to test it . I do have needles for a 29-4 patcher, do you think it might work just to see if it will see?

    Saddlery classes?

    I believe there is already a master saddlery school in Maryland that holds classes twice a year. But it is always nice to have another option. You can always learn something new. You never stop discovering new ways and skills.

    Thanks wiz. I was going to offer considerably less. But I definitely want to lay eyes on her first.

    Opinion on Adler 30-70

    So I am contemplating yet another sewing machine. I have had Singer 29-4 in the past. But found this Adler 30-70. I have made arrangements to go see how rough it really is. I know parts are pricey but where in the USA do I find parts for it. I like that it can use a heavier thread Since I intend on using it to repair English riding boots. Thought and suggestions? ebay # 12376717

    You can also get English stirrup buts from Booth & Co. He is on the east coat just outside Boston

    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.

    What to do with a 10-ft long strap?

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