  1. THANK YOU ALL . I'm almost out of python now but I'll post again soon.
  2. I don't have the time. The tanneries in Florida charge a lot to properly tan the hides.
  3. I've done a few of those, but I'm low on the Python now. too expensive
  4. here's another Python colt ....er it might be a Kimber. LOL
  5. Here's a customer photo of a shoulder rig I made for him. C3Leatherworks
  6. "Oil is cheap compared to replacing parts!" and the two hours production I lost. BoB are those parts available? The screw/pin? the assembly? cost.? Bob, thanks for the advise .!!
  7. I got rid of the squeak for now by disassembling & cleaning these areas up and polishing the screw/pins. highlighted by the arrow. there was some galling in one of the pins. I smoothed it very lightly with white rough and crossed my fingers. AFTER AN HOUR, The squeak is gone for now, but i will look into replacing these parts if it comes back. In the future I will not overlook the required maintenance these area requires. REMOVE THE COVER AND OIL AS RECOMMENDED!!
  8. Yes I did. I was able to lessen the rub by loosening the screw 1/4 turn. ( the screw left and below the one in the pic with an arrow
  9. Oiled holes in the assemble and all next to it. it helped but the galling sound persists. can I disassemble and clean ,polish? Will that help. Machine still runs excellent . NOTE: correction- arrow in picture pointed to wrong joint. the joint to the lower left is the noisy one. I have disassembled , cleaned and reoiled, but slight noise still heard if run slow.
  10. I will do that and be right back
  11. I know the cause is poor maintenance, or time, or both, but what can I do before it gets worse? This bearing is bad. I know it because if I loosen this 1/2 turn the squeek stops. Anyone familiar with this assembly that can advise much appreciated!!!!!! Charles C3leatherworks Miami Fl.
  12. Ahh WOW, beautiful workmanship. Great design
  13. JLS: & Wiz Great pic JLS!!! it worth more than 2000 word. You assumed correct. I removed the spring before I took the picture. Those springs seem so brittle. So I called the manufacturer The Leathemachine company sent me a new spring and the translucent sticker. Now,I have a little more upper tension adjustment with 207 thread, I sent them(leathermachineCo) the picture of the bobbin and they said it can be run like that. I've been using it at 6 SPI. I haven't experimented with a longer stitch yet. I'm still feeling my way along. I thinks I've viewed every cowboy, , cobra , juki 441 video I could find. I need to check out Techsew It does very well with 277 and 207 at 6 spi. Thanks for the replys you guys rock Charles C3leatherworks Miami FL.
