  1. In addition to above comments. What helped me most was to have my stitches set to a length that I knew. For instance if stitches were set to 6 per inch. I would mark material at the place I wanted the corner stitch to end. I would then measure 1/2” before I would reach the corner in my stitch line. If I positioned needle correctly at 1/2” mark, it was almost certain to be placed correctly in the corner mark. That also gave me 3 stitches to adjust if needed.
  2. Deeter Custom Saddlery makes a buckstitch lacing needle that fits in a cobra 3/4 sewing machine. They also have a video on how to get it set up in machine. Others also make similar needle. No affiliation with any of manufacturers.
  3. Hello Try doing a search for "Information on Classic Cub manual stitcher" on this forum. It will give you a bit of information at the very least. Congradulations on your purchase. Kirk
  4. Hello Alex Yes I still have clicker and it's available. Still works fine, I just used it a couple of weeks ago. Thanks for your inquiry. Kirk
  5. Hello You might want to take a look in classified section. It seems to be on ebay also. Its not a byler. But it might do for your needs. No connection. Just trying to help. Good Luck. Kirk
  6. Congradulations! Glad you were able to get everything worked out. Thank you for reply back and on how you were able to fix problem.
  7. If i was having this problem, i would try sewing in reverse first, on a test strip of course. If it was stitching correctly in that direction, I would start stitching in the forward direction over the top of previous stitches (reverse). If it them birds nests or messes up, it would appear to be more related to needle size than the reverse direction. In that case I would change to the next size larger needle. If there is not enough space in material where needle pierces along with thread being doubled up in same hole, it may cause problem you are having. Hope this helps.
  8. You can move alot of heavy items by placing them on a pallet / plywood (securly) and using 3 or 4 pieces pipe (pvc works well ) under pallet to roll on a flat surface. Nice Find. Good Luck!
  9. Very nice! Looks like a lot of hours of work, it shows.
  10. Yes still available. Sorry just say inquiry.
  11. Use your sewing machine to "cut slits" for pattern without thread in needle.
  12. Hello Viking Queen When I have problems as you described; I unthread machine and rethread using a manual or some sort of instructions, making sure that I have thread going in or through everthing correctly. Check bobbin thread to make sure it is coming off spool in correct direction. Change to a new needle. I double check needle to thread size. Make sure machine is propperly oiled. Change to different thickness of leather. Your example is two thickness correct? What I see: knot is a bit towards top of leather on top thread. I would reduce top tension. Not much help I know. I'm sure you have already done all of these things. May help someone else. Good Luck Docado
  13. I still have clicker for sale. Life sort of put this on back burner. Will take $2100. Kirk
  14. You might try looking for "Jacques Shear". Good Luck
