  7. Greetings, Some questions about boot top sewing machines. Obviously the go to machine for decades has been the Singer 31-15. No question about it's fame and usefulness. But I recently saw the Cobra 5550 BB and had a chance to test one. Fine machine. Big bobbin. Roller foot. I have a juki 555 knock off machine head already stashed in a corner of my shop I bought somewhere for less than $100. If I decided to convert this machine would I, could I....etc.....I have seen a few roller foot conversion videos. Specifically would I have to change the feed dogs? Also can you convert a regular bobbin size to a M type bobbin size? I can see where the large bobbin would come in handy for this use. Finally, it seems like the 555 models would be a bit light weight to do boot tops if you go through the lining and the outer layer from the comments I have seen. The Cobra model has the servo and speed reducer. I'm guessing this set up with the right needle size gives the machine enough power to get the job done. I have both a servo and reducer in the shop also so I could optimize with a similar set up. I just don't want to go through the trouble if it's not going to work out. So any input is appreciated. Any other machines or set ups that would work good, better, best for boot tops? Hard to improve on a gabazillion years of tradition with the 31-15. But major props to Cobra for doing something different. The Cobra machine I tested was awesome and if I didn't hoard old machines it would be a great investment I think. Thanks for any advice.

    Cobra strap cutter

    Regarding MM or SAE I have no earthy idea. I'll check it next time I'm at the shop. Cobra can probably tell you. I got this on a trade so I have not used it for any production runs. I'm not sure...

    Cobra strap cutter

    Regarding trade I could use the following; Landis 3, Campbell Randell or Champion needle awl machine - must have all the parts and work. Cobra class 4 or Cowboy similar. Leather splitter- Larger than 12" Any kind of working postbed sewing machine. Need it for shoe work. No high speed upholstery machines. An old Singer would be great. Large size harness and tack sewing machine-ie. Singer class 7 or similar. Five in one machine. Sutton S-1000 shoe finisher. Shoe press. I'm open to other stuff too as long as it's of equal value, if I can use it, or if it seems like a good idea to have one at the time lol. My shop is in Costa Mesa.
  10. The equipment is all located in Costa Mesa.

    Cobra strap cutter

    Cobra strap cutter. Works perfectly. $1600. Maybe interested in a trade also.
  12. I'm interested in one of these machines. Are you interested in a trade at all?
  13. Greetings, I recently bought out a couple of shoe repairs. I'm setting up my own shop and I with these purchases I have several duplicates. I'm willing to trade or make someone a deal of the century package. Here's what I have; Landis 12 K curved needle sole stitcher- Fair condition. Mechanisms smooth. Need to test it. It has been in storage and I don't have it here yet. The attached picture is not actual picture just the same model in similar condition. $600 Landis 12 L curved needle sole stitcher- Mechanisms in great condition and smooth. Works. Has some cosmetic issues- plastic hood is cracked, needs new hinges on door. If not for these minor issues machine functions perfectly. I have used it on and off for a while now. Actual picture. $1000 Set of jackmaster finishers 220v. One set up for soles and one for heels. Actual picture. $1500 Puritan chain stitch sewing machine. Yup the kind they make redwing boots with. Just had it in for servicing and it is still at the shop so no picture yet. Head only. Works. $500 If you can use it all $2500 takes it. If you don't want one or more of the items but are interested in the rest make me an offer. If it is a reasonable offer there is a very high probability I will accept. I have limited work space so I need these items gone. If interested in a trade here's what I can use; Landis 3, Campbell Randell or Champion needle awl machine - must have all the parts and work. Cobra class 4 or Cowboy similar. Leather splitter- Larger than 12" Any kind of working postbed sewing machine. Need it for shoe work. No high speed upholstery machines. An old Singer would be great. Large size harness and tack sewing machine-ie. Singer class 7 or similar. Five in one machine. Sutton S-1000 shoe finisher. Shoe press. I'm located in southern California but drive to Kentucky often. If your on the way north or south I can deliver for reasonable additional delivery charge.
  14. Thank you Bob, I figured it would not be worth very much. I'm located in Southern California. If anyone is interested just let me know.
  15. Came across a barn find. Anyone have any idea of what it might be worth or interested in buying it? Several parts are missing, but the head itself is built like a tank and can be refurbished.
