    I like the challenge in making custom leather products that can't be found in any store.
    Meeting with other leather crafters to expand both our skills.
    Only product I will not do is boots. There are enough quality boot makers already.

  1. As Information: contacted with no response
  2. then machine in the front is a skiver. tho this is not one, there was a machine made that would preform 7 different functions
  3. hello Jessica, I do these things on a daily basis. Most recent are the wallets Ive done out of baseball gloves. if your still looking for someone to discuss concerning this you may contact me for photos ar this site will not allow much more than a ladybug pic to be loaded
  4. i have dealt with this issue so here are some things to look at if you have swapped tee shirts that will be the start of the issue. not knowing what chemicals the shirt have come in contact with will change the adhesion/composition of the finish. this includes laundry detergents or soaps if the finish is water base you may have to dilute the finish. the finish may have changed composition from your supplier with out notice. air quality.... changes in humidity can also cause this to happen. think of it as painting a car, the wrong humidity in the air can cause what is known as Fish Eye in the paint, same thing is happing here
  5. know this is late..... i dont get on much your thread should only take up approximately 40% of the needle hole. Starlight have real nice match up charts you can look at
  6. go to sail rite they are big thread/needle suppliers
  7. depending on what im doing: SLC or Alligator-Ostrich market
  8. call springfield leather or to their web site. on the web site you can goto education, then ask the pros. between all of them they will have the knowledge to explain how to do it
  9. there are a few things that could cause this. 1. the needle is bent. 2. the wrong needle has been put in 3. i believe this to be your issue, it sounds like the machine is out of time. like a car the parts of your machine have to work together. When they don't your machine will not move or in your case the needle hits.
  10. sounds like it would work, tho you may try the leather/rubber cement bond that is used for glueing leather. you would probably have a better response as you will be around a moisture rich environment
  11. Samantha ... If you havent started DONT. I have restored many projects & if you go the the 50 50 you are about to destroy the work. email me & I can help you NortonCustomLeather@gmail.com
  12. Rannoch you may be able to fill the holes depending on the final color of the leather. Black yes, show brown yes
  13. Nettie you can redo the wiring and run it to test. In normal use if the machine has an oil sump you will have to use oil. It should have an oil sump under it. There is designated sewing machine oil. You can not use any other oil. Transporting... you should have a removal plug for draining the oil when changed. So you would have to remove & fill upon setup. You should be able to get a manual from singer. If not you can email me & I may be able to get one. Brad NortonCustomLeather@gmail.com
  14. if any of the material is metal you could get a gold plater. it also plates in other colors. i have one im selling, like it i just dont use it. for leather i wouldn't recommend any foil. it doesn't flex enough & will not with stand the use
