  1. thanks for your input had no idea were to start with a price factor  


    Gday Dikman based on your advice i think i will purchase it....... I have seen a US website selling new belts for 24 USD plus shipping to Australia....unless you know some else ??????  for similar machines  and i need to factor in  restoration etc  so was thinking in the lines of $100 considering hours already spend on it and future hours needed  could you flick me some photos of your configuration  i will manage with the clutch motor as it will mainly be for canvas and upholstery  as it was originally intended and yes i agree it most likely was a GMH machine so Ideal for the Hobbyist (couldn't stitch a fart before LOL) 

    I sent this message to DonInRemo 

    ((((G'day mate if you refer to the photos (on my original post) (photo of canvas hand sewn)  i managed to get a good stitch after much freeing up of many years of grim and loosening everything up and getting  timing spot on I also just needed to tweak the pickup point with a thin angle grinder blade ......just made it pointier and very small tolerance in the Scarf of the needle and adjusted needle height by eye  and hand turned the flywheel never missed a stitch after that  it went through 8 layers of 6 or 8 oz canvas so very happy with that .....next job is to free up the stitch length ....something is not budging and as mentioned and a  new belt and I think I am good to go  and some extra bobbins (only have one) so not too worn that it cannot be salvaged ......think i will buy it off the owner ......132k6 is too big for upholstery work anyway  so will be good as a smaller walking foot for  slightly finer work then a old domestic  for real fine stuff))))

    if your still thinking of selling yours I would be interested (head only for spare parts etc ) no hurry but definitely interested 

    cheers Glyndon
