  5. Well folks I finally bought a sewing machine.Its a singer 45 K 76 ser#EG209728.Has a clutch motor.Needle bar moves,I can turn flywheel by hand and no problems.I paid $50.00 for it.It was to cheap to pass up.I looked it up on line,it said machine was a sack darner.Someone had put a wax pot on it at sometime.My main question is,can this machine be rigged up to see leather?If it can be,what would be the best servo motor to use and what other parts would need to be installed.Thanks,Jack

  8. Thanks everyone for your input.I could not find anyone in Oklahoma that could sharpen the blade.I decided to try to sharpen the blade myself.The blade had a small nick in corner and looked like someone had used a file on it.I have DMT plates,x course.course,fine,x fine and hard ark stones.I figure if I messed it up I havn't lost much.So I sharpened the blade.It has taken a couple hours but,the edge is coming back nicely.About 95% of file marks are gone. I'll be putting the blade back in splitter this weekend.I'll let everyone know how it works out,Jack
