    Wanted to buy: Adler 30 or Singer 29K series sewing machines

    the motor sits vertically inside the green base between the machine and the stand. The plate you see with the red trim between the machine and stand is pivot point . This machine can swivel 360' on that stand. It is very handy considering this machine can sew in a circle. a link to shop photos https://1drv.ms/f/s!AvKbpw0L0slJj1VeZshog1QngNcais

    Cylinder Arm/Binder

    I have been asked lately to repair Hockey equipment . The final step quite often is edge binding. I have a Binder mounted on Adler 267/373 table top machine and it works very well for product you can fit into the sewing area. When I do large Goalie pads , Blocker Mitts and Catcher Mitts, unless I completely disassemble them I am unable to get them near the Binder. I am shopping for a Cylinder arm machine with a binder. Is there anybody here that would have a suggestion where to start? I have an Artisan 4000 (large frame chinese copy of a Juki 441 ) could a binder be applied to the Artisan?

    Thread Issue

    This #46 Nylon thread I just purchased is flying apart or fraying while I'm sewing . Would you say that perhaps this is an old product or is this common with some thread? I have sewn for years and always see a bit debris , but this is from about 45 to 60 seconds of sewing.
