  1. So, I have had a Tippmann Boss for about 2 years now, and I must say, it did most of the job as it should. Its not perfect, but I'd rate it 5/7. This week, I got a neighbour complaint, that it's "too damn loud" so I have to upgrade machinery to electric one. I'm mostly working on belts, holsters, sheaths and bags, that's over 90% of my work. I am located in central Europe, Slovenia. A must-have for next sewing machine is: -electric, 110/230V, single phase -have to sew AT LEAST 10mm of veg tan (preferably more, but at least 10mm or 3/8") -top + bottom feed, can't leave no markings (sheaths, holsters, bags) -quieter than Tippmann (which shouldn't be a problem, since nearly nothing isn't loud as that anchor :D ) -preferably portable, so I can put it on my desk and take it off after work aswell. (something in size of tippmann would be perfect, but like a great philosopher Mick Jagger once said: "You can't always get what you want") Please let me know, what kind of machine would you take for this kind of job, what do you think about changing machines, any other suggestions and/or remarks
  2. Since originally Tippmann doesn't ship to Europe, I'm looking for alternative. If anyone has any bobbins to sell (2 should be enough) and/or flatbed, please let me know..if you're from Europe (or even from US but ready to ship).
  3. You can't imagine how I admire this work and therefore I cannot really just pass it without asking many many questions. But decided to ask only what's neccesery.Đ 1. What's this GEORGEOUS dye? I'd say it's dipped into neatsfoot, but I was never able to get this dye, so please share this info :D 2. What's holding those belt loops together, rivet or stitched together? Is is possible to get any additional pictures?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Im sorry, I don't understand. What's the point of this link?
  7. 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?
  8. 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).
  9. 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.
  10. Great work! Is there a sheet of leather between snake and knife too?
  11. 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?
  12. 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
  13. 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.
