  1. BIG BIG thanks to @Constabulary, @Trox, @JJN and @Bert51. You helped me a lot, you narrowed the price down from 5k to 500-1k. This is BIG for me. Now, today I've been to local shoemaker shop and described my situation. When I said that the seller is asking for ~5k-ish for the machine, both of them agreed that in that price it should be included his car and half of garden. The reasonable price to offer would be ~250€ (or somewhere around 300$) and that's the only if the machine would be fully functional and operating as it should. The owner of the machine is a friend of my father and I find it DISGUSTING to try to robb me so hard. He's asking for 1000% of the real price. Thanks again to this forum, you guys are AMAZING.
  2. I understand. But the prices shouldnt vary too much over the world tho. Guy called me and told me to give him an offer by the end of the week and I have to come up with some price by then. I don't wanna offer too much, while I don't want to insult him either.
  3. Im sorry, I don't understand. What's the point of this link?
  4. So, a guy from my town is going out of business and he called me and said that I'm supposed to make him an offer for sewing machine Adler 5-27. The machine is in very very good shape and it has single phase servo motor. It hasn't been used much at all and i was told "it was in army warehouse for a long time as reserve machine" and that he only used it for about 20 hours or so. What price should I offer to him, what would be fair price for it?
  5. Is this set still availible? Lot 3: 1/2" Letters and numbers $30
  6. Searching for canvas material, which is simmilar (or even better, exactly the same) as old tarps used to be made of. Color doesn't matter much, as long as it is military color - camo, grey, green, brown, desert, etc. Doesn't matter very much. Would need 1-2m^2, but can't find supplier for that material anywhere. I'm interested in buying tarp as such aswell, could be torn (need it for parts to sew some other stuff).
  7. I have fully designed a wallet, which I will (as prototype) cut out with laser, but I'm lost how to create the coin pocket. Does anyone have a pattern for it maybe? I will be using 1.3/1.5mm or 3-4 oz. veg tan.
  8. Great work! Is there a sheet of leather between snake and knife too?
  9. Is there any difference for the machine itself - to use nylon or polyester thread? I'm currently buying new spool and to me (as unexperienced) doesn't make any difference at buying, but might to the product or machine itself?
  10. It seems I couldn't get an answer to this yet; is this thread okay to use on tippmann or not? https://www.ebay.com/itm/50M-150D-1mm-Waxed-Thread-Wax-String-fr-Leather-DIY-Sewing-Stitching-Craft-HighQ/333117384608?hash=item4d8f57e7a0:m:m1faykOtJqglgeM2bnzRMdg
  11. If I'd punch 40mm oblong hole for 40mm belt, that would be waaaaaaaaaaay too much for me. I use 25mm (or 1") oblong punch and i'ts just enough for me.
  12. lowering price to 50 USD, shipping worldwide included.
  13. Dwight highly dissagrees on that
  14. yeah, but I cannot find which one he meant. None of them above doesn't have thread size written. https://www.tandyleather.com/en/category/threads
