Hello everyone been awhile since I been on here winter season here in Massachusetts , any way time to play and as I am sewing quantity of belts and shooting slings I find my self buying pre wound bobbins from cobra and find my self throwing out a lot of waste at end of bobbins due to not wanting to run out in middle of a run , my question is am I looking into this detail to much and should I just run the bobbin out and stich over 3 Stiches with new bobbin and keep stitching , what do you all do? these slings are to be sold to the public

    what machine to buy

    thanks for all the replies and suggestions , a lot of you suggested I get a cowboy 4500 and I will first I am looking for a machine to do just a bit lighter stuff that`s why I was deciding between the 1541 -1508 -1508H so I think I settled for the 1508 gonna get it Tuesday from a local shop well 1.5 hours away close enough, who matched the web prices for me he also has in stock . I figure the close by help offers from him might just come in handy , then back to work get some more play money put aside and get the CB4500 they say the 1508 takes thread from #46-#138 the 1508H goes from #69--#207 the cowboy starts at #138 so I thought the 1508 was the choice I`m gonna do something Tuesday when I see them all lol I`m not getting the cowboy just yet gonna get a serger with the 1508 or whatever I decide tue. Oh ya and a skiver , so cowboy is on the wait list lol, He also said he has a bunch of LU 563`s he wanted to show me. thank`s again everyone

  10. Hello everyone thank`s for letting me join I live in wakefield ma usa . I have always tinkerd with leather, basic dog collars with rivets anyway I decided I am going to get a leather machine , I plan on sewing heavy leather bags #2 Latigo leather 7-8 oz also shooting slings out of 9-10 0z. Latigo leather and such and bags out of softer leather as well also heavy double layer veg tan belts out of belt blanks , also wallets and what ever else I can come up with , I do have a singer year 1948 model 201-2 for lighter stuff so my question is do I get the juki 1508N or the juki 1508 H these are the two machines I picked out after a couple of days on internet 1508 goes from #46 - #138 and the 1508H goes from #69 - #207 thread were do I need to be I`m leaning on the 1508H but not sure if thats just the man in me lol , I will probably be getting a cowboy 3200 or 4500 in future , so now you know what I have what I want next and were I`m gonna end , Any suggestions that would help me make my mind up would be appreciated
