  1. I'm interested in purchasing a Pearson #6.

  2. I have one of these machines but it is still in the box it came in from a few years ago. Maybe I will make it my next project machine to see how it sews. I specialize in Restoring BUSM No. 6 machines and many parts appear to be the same, at least the screws. Mine has a complete treadle stand which is very attractive in itself. Thanks for the inspiration. I'll let you know in 2 weeks how I make out with it.
  3. A Landis no. 1 Shuttle will not work in BUSM No. 6. They are different sizes. If anyone wants a new Pearson no. 6 shuttle I have new ones in stock. They are $250.00US each and are complete and perfect. I supplied them to Aaron Martin. I also have new feet, rollers (long and short) that go into the front flywheel, needle bar thread tension plates and the thread lock plates (the ones at the top right part of the machine where the thread goes between them). I also have the little springs and screw for the shuttle cover. These are all new stock and are excellent. Feel free to contact me: Henry Veenhoven 416-231-1870 or veenhoven@sympatico.ca
  4. Greetings from the other side of the world, I just stumbled on this posting. You are the only person I have ever seen that has more Pearsons than I do. In case you or anyone else needs parts I have new shuttles and other wearing parts available. I also have Junker & Ruh SD 28 mchines available for sale and I also have new Shuttles and bobbins for those as well. In case anyone is interested. Thanks, Henry Veenhoven Toronto, Canada Tel: 416-231-1870 Email: veenhoven@sympatico.ca
  5. You have to read the whole listing. Shipping is as per weight and where you are located. I can't put anything else on Ebay;'s site becasue every location is different. That is why I state in big bold blue lettering to wait until I send you an invoice. That is the only way I can list it from Canada! They are not heavy so I am guessing between $10-20.00 depending on your exact location and which lot interests you.
  6. Greetings, I have lots of splitters for sale on Ebay at the moment as well as other items of interest. Search for seller "henrywon" and you will find the full listings. Here are a couple of links: http://www.ebay.com/itm/141561661161?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 and http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Rare-Harness-makers-saddle-makers-brass-embossing-plates-not-Osborne-/141561633290?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20f5bb1a0a If you have any questions just ask. Thanks for looking.
  7. I just listed some very unusual creasing machines on Ebay including a Randall Creaser, 2 Akerman & Gould Creasing machines a Junker & Ruh sewing machine and a Planet sewing machine as well as a couple of others. Just search under seller: 'henrywon' and you should find the listings if interested. Here are some pictures of some of the items for your viewing pleasue. If you have any questions just ask.
  8. Hi Peggy, You are right, it is an insole stitcher. It is very rare but I have a couple myself that I bought in Europe. I don't know anything more about them than what you have discovered yourself unfortunately. If you do manage to dig up any other info please let me know. Thanks, Henry (in Toronto by the way). Hi, I just purchased a Junker & Ruh (SK) states it is made in Germany but this is an insole stitcher I believe as it has the horn on it. I have been looking online for more information and can't seem to find anything more than it was possibly made in Karlsruh, Durlach Baden, Germany. Would you happen to know about this machine or where I might find out more about it. I reside in Windsor Ontario and purchased this just recently in Kitchner. thanks

Freedman's makes the finest harness in the world. Just go to: http://www.freedmanharness.com/ and browse through the harness section of the web site. All of the harness you see is either sewn by hand or with a Randal. What more can I tell you. These are surplus machines, hence they are for sale.

  13. Bill, For the foot marks feel free to sand/grind the corners of the foot so they are more wounded and polish the rounded corners. The foot is not involved in moving the leather, so it doesn't need the full footprint to achieve the pressure required to hold the work. There is a smaller foot available as well with a narrow slot so it is narrower than the standard foot you have. You might get one of those as well and then round the corners and you should be good to go after that. Cheers, Henry Contacted Tippman today and talked to Tom. He was very helpful and walked me through a couple things. Ended up, he thought the shuttle retainer may be the problem. So I ordered that to start with. Too scared to use the machine for now. It's really binding. Dennis, I talked to him about the presser foot. He said at one time they came out with the valve, but it caused other problems with the leather moving around. He suggested keeping the foot highly polished, and then rub out the marks. I may get a cobblers hammer like you have and try that. Bill
  14. Hi All, I'm looking for some shoemaking tools if anyone has extras or a good source, I'd love to hear from you. Specifically, I need Peg Floats, Burnishing Irons, and a Welt Creasing Wheel. Also, I'm desperately searching for a source for the finger shaped Clicker's Whetstones. Thanks, Jeff Jeff, Can you tell me what a clicker's Whetstone is? I may have it without knowing that that is what is called? I tried a Google search but didn't have any luck. Thanks, Henry
  15. Does anyone out there have a Tippmann Aerostitch machine (with reverse) that they are interested in selling? Have machines to trade in you looking for a good skiving machine or will just buy it outright if preferred. Thanks, Henry Veenhoven 416-231-1870 Email me
