  1. Would an easy out screw extractor work, or is it to small? i have never had a screw that tight. Are you sure it isn’t a reverse thread?

    So I work mostly on English tack and occasionally on simple western repairs. I have been asked to turn some western stirrup leathers using a wrap method. Can anyone help me out. I am only familiar with the broom method.

    CARPAL TUNNEL

    Yes I have carpal tunnel. I was diagnosed about 10 years ago. I was scheduled for surgery in March and then Covid happened. I wear braces at night and if I have worked them to hard I will also take Meloxicam. I have a small cattle farm and make hay so my surgery has to be in the off season. So I will wait till after the new year. I too have a touch of arthritis. Wish you well with your surgery.

    What is it that you are making? there is Ohio travel bag if you are doing luggage. Chupp Brothers if you are working on harness. I do have some other names I could give you later.

    No it was a Sutton stand. It came with the sewing machine. They are used in the shoe industry. I removed the motor and replaced it with a servo and speed reducer. I kept the stand because its compact and put wheels on it so I could tuck it in a corner of the shop and pull it out when needed. I think your Adler is an early model. You should be able to run the motor off the backside of your table. i used a piece of plywood to extend the table out for that purpose.

    Your favourite tools

    I would have to say my stitching bench. My father gave it to me almost 30 years ago when I started with leather work. He is now gone and it will never leave me.

    I work mostly on English saddlery. I just happened upon this machine and thought I would replace zippers in tall English riding boots. So I mostly look at it lol. I will oil and run it to keep it moving. I am kind of a sewing machine junky. Can't help it, that's why I have had several Singer patchers come through my shop. I like cleaning them up and get them running again. The Adler was mint and all I did was change the motor to a servo and add a speed reducer.

    Glad you got it moving freely. I have a 30-70 I picked up about a year ago. I have it set up with 138 thread. They are such nice machines. You are going to love it.

    I have done a few stuck Singer Patchers without having to disassemble. Oil her up good and keep rotating. So much so that it drips.
