  1. I have sewn on the 69 in a couple of subclasses. great machine. However, I own a 669 eco. It is fabulous. Until about 1.5 years ago, only machine built in this class in the new generation. Seiko came out with one in 2019 i believe but not as good in that stitch length is not as long or is the lift as high. My question is what do you want to sew and what weight of thread do you want to use? Answers will determine what machine I would recommend. I can give you the differences between the machines. glenn
  2. Unusual for Eli. I would still call him. He is the leading expert on the Landis 16 right now! aaaaaaaaaaaaa Something pissed him off for sure but what? I give people 2 chances. Like James Bond said. " Once is chance, twice is coincidence, 3 times is enemy action!" Glenn
  3. Contact Eli Schalbach at Landis Sewing In Port Aurthur, IL. He rebuilds them. glenn
  4. The 2341,42 are Juki copies of the DA869. It is just like the 2810 is a copy of the 867. Juki is a very good machine. To my knowledge, the 2341,42 and the 869 are the only new 3rd generation machines out in the cylinder arm. Pfaff, Consew, Seiko and clones are not available at this time. The Juki's should be cheaper than the Adler. I sewed and worked on an 869 with all the toys for about 6 years. Hell of a machine. glenn
  5. I have bobbins that will fit this machine and I have a bunch of hooks coming in from Germany. I hope some of these are Durkopp hooks. check with me in about 2 weeks. glenn
  6. The jog dial is a super great feature of the 967, 969. So good, DA has incorporated into other new models. You can position the needle where ever you want using just your index finger. great piece of engineering. They now have the 969 Pure out which is the stripped down version of the 969 Eco. No jog dial on that one. glenn
  7. call Shoe System Plus in New York or Gateway Shoe in Illinois. Both are shoe Repair machine companies. They should have manuals on these machines. glenn
  8. That is a UFA Singer shoepatcher. Early one. Contact Horse&Harness in Ohio. They have parts for 29-4 which includes the spring tension bar. I have the parts but they are for other machines that I am rebuilding. glenn
  9. Nakajima developed the 441 in the early to mid 1980's. they also made parts for Juki as well as their own machines. Juki bought the company in he very early 1990's if i remember correctly. Their engineers went thru every machine and tweaked some things. In some cases, Juki kept the sample model number. In other cases, they change the model number completely. the Nakajimi 441 became the Juki 441! glenn
  10. Contact Luke at MJ Foley in Detroit. They are the master distributor for Juki in North America. glenn
  11. Pneumatic motors used mostly by the Amish. I would remove and replace with servo and speed reducer unless you are Amish. If not, I would then sell the pneumatic motor to he Amish. They cost more than servos. Not so noisy as the compressor is usually outside in Amish establishments. Great machine. I have one with all the toys on it. It needs a good cleaning and going over. Take your time and do it thoroughly. Bob at Toledo or Allen Burkholder at Weaver can answer any questions you may have. glenn
  12. A 7 class might work. I would contact Cerliani and Hirose and see if they make hooks for the 120 class still. That machine is still being made to order in Germany last i Knew by another company for Adler. I think it is the same one producing the 30 class shoe patchers for Adler. glenn
  13. The Chandler 305-64 is a clone copy of an Adler 105-64. Chandler had these made in Japan after they lost the Adler distributing rights for AMERICA . Should thread the same as ther Adler glenn
  14. JIMI 7 PATCHERS and a mountain of boots!!!
  15. great Job 29K15engine! I have been playing with these gears and rack over the last couple of years. SItamaco in Spain has the 29K1parts made in China I believe. They are new. The drive gears, short rack, following gears, shuttle carrier and set screws are all needed today for 29-4, 29K1-33, 29K51-56machines. Other than Sitomaco, no one is making them. thee is a big need for these parts. Singer made over 250,000 29-4 machines! Gear #8608 was used in 29K1-4,10-18,21-23, 32, 33. right of of original singer parts book. I know no one is making gears for the 51-56. glenn Very nice result!!!!! glenn

  17. Question #1 the wing nut on the big tension spring will adjust the height of the walk. Looking at the back of the machine, move the clamp and wing nut to the left to increase the height of the walk. Question #2 will have to remove the end of the head to change the tension discs. Question #4 Depends on size of the needle as to which needle hole in throat plate to use. Question #5 You can get generics hooks on line. not real expensive. I have just come into a large cache of original Singer Simanco small bobbin hooks. These do not really really exist today in just about any other place. Price for the genuine hook is $50.00 plus shipping. You can message me if you are interested. glenn
  18. can we see pics of it please. glenn
  19. two things. Looks like you are going around the pin that holds the tension discs in place. DO NOT go around the that pin. That alone will effect tension. Also, the smallest needle you can use with #138 thread is a 22/140. Do not use #21 with #138 thread on top. glenn
