  1. Hello Andrew! What type of laser cutter do you use? I'm thinkink to buy a cheap one from gearbest (China) about 200 $. 2500 MW laser is enough to cut 2 mm leather? Thank you. Zapee
  2. It works! Thank you all of the good informations and suggestions! I sewed about 4 meter and I haven't got this pig-tailing. Evo160k: They already sent me one digital copy from the manual and parts list about 1 week ago. Shame but I do not understand German (Funny the manual has no pictures in it :D ). Thank you. I attached the "best working thread guide what you suggested for me! I can't belive it... it working now like a charm!
  3. Thank you all for taking your time to reply my questions. I learned a lot from you now. I will try all of your suggestions! I love leatherworker.net! Thank you again! Adam
  4. I have a heavy duty sewing machine type Claes 223-2. This machine is "new" for me. I'm trying to sew very thick thread. When i sew about 40-50 cm the thread is getting rolled or drift, I don't know witch is the best word for this phenomenon. What is the reason? The overall look of the stiching I think it's good, but i fear the thread is getting stuck or something when it's too "drifted". Another question: how can I avoid the scratches of the grain size of the leather? (the transmitting tooths scratches the soft leather) There is any trick to avoid this I mean can I protect the leather while i sew it? Any suggestion? Thank you for your help!
  5. Thank you for the info TinkerTailor! A bit more whisky, haha Have a nice day!
  6. My next problem, i need to find a store where I can buy these bobbins (Juki 441 looks like the same i think, thanks for ThinkerTailor for the info) outside from the US, because the high shipping cost from there to Hungary. If somebody can show me an alternative "chinese" or something site i would be very happy! Thank you!
  7. Thank you for the fast reply! I measure it again! (I measured with a ruler... it's not so perfect i think). I will look up for the juki 441 and adler machines.
  8. Hello! First of all, sorry if my english is not too good. I already have a Singer 18-3 shoemaker sewing machine. I live in Hungary, in my country there are not so many used leather sewing machine for sale. I love handsewing leather, but a want to make belts and bigger backpacks with sewing machine (with thick thread). Recently I bought a "big" heavy duty machine. The machine type: Claes 223-2 (this machine was built in 1973. in Germany) It has a very large bobbin and it can sew with the thickest thread (sorry I dont understand the US sizes of the threads, in metric i sew with a number 10 thread (its very thick)...). I want to buy bobbin for this machine because I have only one. I already sent an email to the "new" Claes company but I haven't got any answer yet. The size of the bobbin: 2,54 cm * 3,0 cm in metric. Thank you for the help!

  12. Hello Dear Leatherworkers, I recently finished my first long wallet. I ruined everything on this project. For examples the stiches. I think the overall look is good but I learn again a lot. The next one will be better! The little birds are burned.
  13. It is my first tablet case and the first project that i carved. I never carved anything before, this was the "challenge" for me.
