  1. A nice Campbell Randall NSB machine with a few upgrades I bought from Dan. The acrylic safety cover has a switch that can be wired onto the motor so that it will only run when the cover is down. New table from CR with variable speed. Various sized spacers and a set of #1 blades on the machine. A few spare blades but unsure of their size. Pickup in the Albany, NY area. Zip 12834 Here's an imgur link with more photos. https://imgur.com/a/6iFmjwK Feel free to reach out with any questions. Need the space in my shop and we don't do strap work really. $2500 OBO
  2. Personally, if it was me, I would look for a Kwikprint Model 55. It's portable, bomb proof, and most use a simple robotemp controller. You can't beat them. I have about 8 in our production shop and rebuild them often. Foil stamping is a delicate balance between pressure, dwell, and temperature and springs will probably get in the way of that. I have a dozen or so Kwikprints for sale in the New York area. Some 55's, 86's, and some goose neck stands. Reach out if youre in the area.
  3. Retrofitting XY milling tables was pretty common on old school toggle presses like Kensols. I did exactly that on a Kwikprint 86 and used an old Palmgren XY Rotary table which gives me the left/right and a full 360 of adjustment. It's improved that machines capability significantly. I was only able to make this modification because the KP 86 has adjustable head height. Even the cheapo XY tables you posted probably wont fit under head most of the Chinese hot stamping machines. That includes the Dream Factory for sure. The other issue is the platforms relationship to the stamping head. They need to perfectly parallel across the board to stamp evenly. You will have no way of adjusting that on the XY in relationship to the chase/fixture/stamping head of the machine using the pictured set. The design of the Kwikprint gives you control over the platforms level using four leveling screws. It's a nice feature when you need it but it would still be better to have that cast into the frame itself as those screws work themselves loose over time (even with threadlock). In the photo below you can see the Palmgren rotary table bolted to the dovetailed platform of the KP. A ground 3/8" steel plate was then bolted to the vise as a work platform.
  4. Not to split hairs, but Lucris is in Australia. Based on your first post I gather that Allpress dropped the ball and not Lucris themselves? It's important to be clear whos at fault if you're going to post something less than ideal about a company. You know what they say, bad press......is bad press.
  5. I'm not sure who you bought it from but most of us in the states buy them from Henry Veenhoven and not Lucris directly. Good chap. Easy to deal with.
  6. Nice! I always recommend the Lucris whenever I can. I bought on when I started and I still use it everyday even with cnc cutters and clicker presses.
  7. We run a cnc cutter and two 25 ton atoms in the shop and I still use my little Lucris everyday. Great for wallet parts, coasters, dee ring components etc. It's also a good spot to stick a new employee until they get comfortable with the process. They're also a great option for smaller lexan dies that are highly accurate but delicate to say the least. Also, I don't agree with the notion that these little presses are a waste of money and I'd point out that bringing in a hydraulic clicker is prohibitive to most hobbyists for more reasons than I can count.
  8. Personally, I always recommend the Lucris MA III over the Weaver. It's better built and comparable in price. The originals are built in Australia and available through Henry Veenhoven in Canada. Buckleguy and others carry a chinese clone.
  9. Never seen a cylinder arm like this. Anyone know what they were designed for? Darning machine of some sorts?
  10. I agree but there's definitely a "if you're buying it you already know how to use it" vibe going on with him. I'm happy with the machines I've bought from him though. He does his homework. I got a manual from Techsew for a similar clone. Can't attach it due to size reqs but PM me if you need it.
  11. Hi all - I bought a 17" High Post machine from Sergey at Sew Pro. Obviously a Chinese machine with model number 85017. Techsew and a few others seem to have the clone as well. The only difference that I can tell between his and the Techsew is that the tension disc plate (?) on the Sewpro has a black lever that when pushed releases all of the tension on the discs. Unfortunately there was no manual provided, only a parts list. Does anyone have anything comparable?
  12. Thanks mate. Very cool. Would you mind dm’ing me the STL? I’ll print one out tonight.
  13. Thanks chaps. Im not in the shop right now but I had this video on my phone. LW wouldn't let me upload due to size limit. Uwe, sorry for the teminology mixup. I meant arm cover not throat plate. I had used your breakdown on another thread to convert another 69 into a binder. Worked great. I'd like to set this one up for narrow/tight stitching which is why I thought those feet would work well. So as I gather it, only the 267 needs a different gauge set and the 69 should work with these sans modification. VIDEO: https://vimeo.com/683961357
  14. Really appreciate the responses chaps. I thought these were triple feed? It’s a 69-373 just without the moving throat plate but I believe it’s perfectly capable of having one without modification. I don’t know for sure though. Does that sound correct? KH lists the foot as needing this feed dog and plate but it’s unclear if that’s for the 267 only doesn’t even seem like it would fit the 69?
  15. Hi all Any ideas if this KH foot will work on an older Adler 69. Standard model not vibrating arm. I can’t get an answer from Kh. I’m looking for something very low profile like this for tight spaces.
