  1. I spend most of last night searching for video I had seen. Well I came across this youtube this morning
  2. I wonder if I can ask anyone with a working Model 308 could post some photos showing the position of the shuttle when the hand lever is fully extended up? Thanx in advance Matthew
  3. A customer dropped this off today. he said he used to sew leather with it a while ago, but has been store in the barn for the last several years. I doubt it has been cleaned in a while and the cotton oil wicks were pretty dry. after oiling it, resetting the needle I got the needle to pick up the bobbin thread. is stitches OK but the tensions are shot. He applied paint in the wrong places. So if I decide to keep it, it will get a strip down and some TLC. a quick search on eBay shows parts availability is good. And I don't like the colour. Matthew
  4. Ok finally got time to look at this again. The issue I bigger than I thought. I removed the feet and the needle hits the race case. I adjusted the race case so the needle doesn't hit it, but now the needle hits the needle foot. Man. I would love to know what they did! more reading and research is called for. Matthew
  5. capturing a short video has raised multiple issues: the needle is be misaligned by the foot and also the hole. Tomorrow I will revert to the original binding feet and needle plate. https://youtu.be/Z4nBmquW2xg
  6. RA, Will do. I also found the an adjustment manual for a Pfaff 335.
  7. An employee recently acquired a good second hand, working a Golden Wheel CS 335BH, a binding cylinder Pfaff 335 copy. the binding attatchment has been replaced with a non binding kit. the shuttle timing has an issue, as the needle goes down into the shuttle race but jams preventing a full rotation of the mechanism. I have checked the shuttle and bobbin, there is nothing out of place. I haven't found a methodoly to verify the timing mechanism. Can anyone assit? I will grap a small video of the machine showing the issue today when I retrun to our shop.
  8. Finally got some parts in. The shuttle body #20757 would appear to be impossible to source. One I sourced from a local supplier sent #12393. I have since ordered a new Hook # 12444 and a complete Shuttle Race #24415. ( all these fit on a 31k15) When I attempted to remove the original drive hook I noticed two bumps on it as if there was a pin going through the hook and shaft. a picture is attached. the parts manual show holes in the approx. position. Before I start whacking and thought it would be better to ask "Would this be a pin I need to tap out? " Thanx. Matthew
  9. I realised I hadn't wrapped this up with a final post. I had two cutter styles made course for thick leather and soles and fine for sole overlay. Initially the majority of our work was sole overlays so I installed the fine cutter. I haven't needed to try the course cutter yet, as the fine cutter goes so well.
  10. This machine just popped up near by. Can anyone help me identify the model?
  11. Well I'm impressed with the machine. After running a bit, oil ozzed out from the head and made a suitable mess. But I found when running at full speed ( yes, I rewired the motor and switch to make somewhat compliant) I found the machine would stall. Initially I thought the needle plate was binding on the feed dogs, but us became clear the bobbin case was not as free as it should be. A good rubbing with scotch bright, removed a reasonable amount of surface rust and grime Now it runs freely again. New replacement bobbin cases #20756 are on order as is new feed dogs and needle plate. When I place some material under the lowered presser foot, the material feeds through nicely. I am still waiting for needle to be delivered. That is when I try it out properly. So far this machine has cost me $AU 90. I am happy the purchase.
  12. A singer 31k20 popped up locally with the advert saying "the needle wouldn't pick up the bobbin thread". Upon inspection, the mechanism was smooth, the bobbin shuttle a little rusty and the needle in the machine was a really fine domestic D shank. I determined it was worth the super low asking price, so it is now in my garage. The machine came with many domestic spares including what looks like a fancy foot to convert a straight stitcher to a ZikZag Most of these will go to a friend that does domestic machines. first task is to source correct needles and replace the dreaded rubber main wire flex. Cheers Matthew
  13. We determined we need a walking foot machine for making and repairing leather bag. I was amazed when the 111W112 popup up just 20km away. But that wasn't to be. A Singer 411U967 is also available, but I am struggling to find information about the machine. It would appear to take the same range of presser feet as the 111W. Can any one help with additional information?
  14. I my search for a wlking foot sewing machine I have noticed the Following terms: Walking foot, Compound feed Compound walking foot For Example Singer operational manual describes the 111W112 as an "compound feed and alternating pressers" My local shop describes the 411U as a medium- heavy duty Compound feed The same shop describes the Singer 132k6 as a heavy duty Walking foot. Are these all the same thing?
