  1. Here is a flyer I did for the machine and some more information: In actuality, it has less than 5 working hours on it. It is too heavy duty for the items I am making. I have the capability to package it up and arrange shipping with the buyer paying shipping cost. I'm asking $2500 OBO + shipping. Local pickup is available as well Please see the attached flyer for all the details. Cheri Riva-Heffren crivaheffren@yahoo.com 831-679-2769

  5. I bought this machine in December of 2014 and it sat in the box in my house until June of 2017 when I finally set it up. It works fabulously, but is not the right machine for my needs. It probably doesn't even have 100 stitches on it. It is mounted on a U-shaped table and comes complete with everything listed in the following link (See the link for specs as well). I purchased it from Toledo Industrial Sewing. http://www.tolindsewmach.com/cb227r.html Paid $1,695.00 + S/H for the machine Priced at $1,395.00 + S/H Located in Salinas, CA Cheri Heffren 831-679-2769 Home, 831-594-5897 Cell
  6. Thanks MIke/Twin Oaks and Tramp for the info. I was trying to figure out the cylinder arm equivalent to the 205/206, so you answered my question! I will check at Nick-O-Sew as the platform is pretty important for me so I can utilize the machine as a flat bed for my home décor projects. As a "newbie" I sometimes don't even know what questions to ask, so all of the information provided in these forums has been invaluable to me. Thanks to everyone who contributes with their experience and knowledge!
  7. Mike thank you for all of the useful information you provided. Funny you should mention the Cowboy machines, as I was researching them last night. I am set on a cylinder arm machine and will take a look at the information you have on your blog. Also thanks for the top tension adjustment advice. I am a little intimidated by my Cobra and although I turn the two top tensions the same each time, I am always worried I will get things out of sync. Your method would resolve that. I think I am narrowed down to Consew or Cowboy, I just need to know if the 277/2700 would be the best fit in-between my Elna and Cobra Class 4, or if I would need to step up to the 3200 or Consew equivalent. I think I will pose those questions to each distributor and see what they come back with. Really appreciate your input!
  8. Thanks for the input Colt and JLS. After more research I saw that the higher numbers were later models, as you have pointed out. I am glad you also pointed out the flat bed vs cylinder issue. I was wondering about that. From sewing on a home machine my whole life, I of course am more comfortable with a flat bed, but I want to get a machine that will aid my projects not restrict them. I also saw a post bed and read somewhere in this forum about someone using that type for purses and accessories. What is your opinion on that? I do want some versatility with the machine, so is a post type pretty limiting? Is there a platform available that would convert the cylinder are into a flat bed? I have one for my Cobra.
  9. Thanks Tramp. I will wait to hear from someone on the Cobra. Cheri
  10. I have an Elna Carina and a Cobra Class 4. I currently do clothing alterations, home décor and tack repair (chaps, breastcollars, horse blankets, etc) but I am wanting to make purses and other accessories out of light to medium weight leathers. I am feeling that the Cobra may be too "Heavy-Duty" and had someone suggest a Consew 206RB-5 as a machine that would fill-in the gap. Is the Cobra capable of crafting the light/medium weight items while maintaining good stitch quality or do I need the fill-in machine? Also, after researching on the Toledo website, I saw the Chandler 406RB-1. It is a bit cheaper but the description reads like it is the same machine as the Consew with just a different name and number. Would anyone have any recommendations for me and information on the differences (if any) of the two machines? I also hem jeans (by re-attaching the old hem to maintain the worn look at the bottom) and the thicknesses are very hard on my Elna. Would the Consew or Chandler machines be good for that task also? Thanks- Cheri Heffren
  11. Thanks for your input. I was told the 206RB-5 is a bit heavier duty than the 205RB-1...but that was one person's opinion. Good to know about the 138 thread max. Definitely a question I will ask, as they advertise up to 207.
