  1. That is incredible how a name will be so misleading. I am going to give it a try. Will keep you posted. Now I got to learn how to blend/feather the paint to the rest of the body.
  2. Will contact you tomorrow! Thanks for the info. Do not understand you...
  3. Contacted Consew New York and California. NY told me to contact California. California gave me a location in Bell. The person in Bell had little information on the particular part. Still checking.
  4. Thanks! I will give greased lighting a try. Consew is great. I was thinking the same. However, I was hoping to find an aftermarket product that works as well as OEM.
  5. Hello friends, I just got a very greasy Consew 206rb-1. This will be my pride and joy machine. I am hoping this machine will clean up well. My plans are to remove the old dry oil in the main parts. I welcome any tips to remove old oil puddles. Additionally, the machine needs a needle bar. According to the Consew Manual, part # is 10530 for the needle bar. In my search for the needle bar, I came across part # 19413. Is the #19413 bar, the same as the 10530 bar? I was thinking the #19413 contains the additional NEEDLE BAR THREAD GUIDE & NEEDLE & GUIDE SCREW? I would love to buy OEM parts, however, do you recommend a particular brand or seller? Likewise, I welcome any input to accomplish my goal of bringing this fine machine back to health.
  6. Hi, I was wondering if you happened to know the part number for the consew 225? Please advice, Thanks!
  7. Exactly what I did. Thanks! The run from my box is quite long. I upgraded the main box for future options.
  8. Thanks so much for the info. I think I am going to give the enduro in eBay a try. I saw some videos on YouTube from user of this particular motor. They appear happy with the end results. The reason I liked the enduro motor was mainly the price. I wanted to know if the enduro motor was legit not just junk. I will keep my options open for the 110 also.
  9. Thanks so much for getting back to me. I truly value your sage advice. I understand the 110 norm. I know my way around electricity and custom installations. I have 220 in the garage where I am going to use it. I upgraded my house to run both 220 and 110. Many things in kitchen, garage, AC, pool,Family/entertainment room, emergency generator hook-ups, ect. That uses 220. I guess my question should have been, Any feedback on these motors? I am not a pro or will be using this in an industrial or professional production. If no one used them, Can someone recommend me a particular model that will work for my applications? I welcome any input! Not in a hurry to buy.
  10. Friend, I am in the market to upgrade my well maintained consew 225. I am planing to do slow thicker leather T138 work max. Mostly T105 and T90. Do you have any input as to which one might be the best suited for my type of needs? I saw a nice one deliver with tax for $60: Enduro Pro SM645B-2P Servo Motor w/ Positioner Industrial Sewing Machine 220V or this one for 65 deliver: Enduro sewing machine servo motor 220 volt ONLY variable speed motor SM1050-2PF. The prices are very low, and I wonder if these motors are just junk? Please advice, G.

    Beautiful work!
  12. I was looking at the Organ Titanium coated Needles also. They look good. I will give them a try. Thank you sir.
  13. Hello friends, I want to put my 225 to work and need to get some leather needles for Tex 70,90, and 138. Can you please recommend a needle company? I was about to buy some Organ brand needles. However, there are some Germans that do look good. Any input, if greatly appreciated! G.
