    twin needle domestic sewing machines

    That is why on an zigzag machine the hook is orientated the way it is (on the backside) : it needs to catch the topthread in both needle positions (left and right)

    Adler 220 Minimum needle size

    Just changed my adler 220 from system. 7x23 to system 328 so i can buy leather needles for is (they are almost the same length)
  11. Acording the advertiser its a 63 (not 73) than it should be bottum and needle feed. all the adlers i bought (that old) were not dificult to get sewing verry well. this machine is for sale for some months now because he was asking to much (in my opinion) (if i were you i would sent him an email and offer 100 euro) regards michiel

    Yet another question

    Last week i made a verry simple bag (a projectbag for my wife) and wanted some folded leather around it (to keep them open) i dohave some hemmers but they were nof big enough i did try to fold the leather with a steam iron and that did work out verry well in this case the leather was nof verry thick, i did use steam but did not make the leather complete wett and after it had the right form a waited about 15 minutes and than use sewed it (without glue) i donot know if this works with al kinds of leather but in this case it worked (i am not verry experienced with leatherwork)
