  1. How much are you asking for it?
  2. Looking at the Juki 341 and the equivalent Atlas version. Compound feed for various thicknesses of leather. I don't do holsters or anything that thick, but I do like this machine as something that can go from smaller goods up heavier leathers.
  3. I've been looking around for a walking-foot machine and I've noticed that I could get a new Atlas Levy clone for about the same price as an older (but supposedly well-maintained) Juki of the same model. Some background on my uses: Hobbyist who doesn't do high volume at all. Will be used exclusively with leather. Not in a rush to buy. Currently own a Cobra post-bed machine that I'm happy with. Which option would you guys usually recommend? I don't have any experience with Atlas Levy, but my Cobra seems to be working well for my needs. Thanks!
  4. I ran across these and I think they've got the right idea, but unfortunately that's an oscillating flat blade instead of a standard bell. Would be cool if someone made the same thing but with a bell instead.
  5. This might be a really stupid (or naive) question, but why are bell skivers so large and expensive? As I'm sure you can tell, I don't yet own one (don't have the space for another table), but from everything I've seen they don't seem to be much more than a bell knife, a feeder, and a guide. Even with the sharpening stone, it seems like the same thing could be accomplished in a much smaller package using a modern drill motor, smaller guide arm, etc. Have any companies tried to redesign them with a more modern approach? Am I missing some key element? Thanks for any insights!
  6. What's your location?
  7. Definitely would have scooped this if I were closer. Been looking for a 1341-based machine at a good price.
  8. Thanks for the input. Sounds more complex than I'd assumed.
  9. Hey everyone, I'm well aware that ordering dropship machinery from AliExpress can be a pretty sketchy ordeal, but I'm curious if anyone has any experience with getting an 801 bell skiver from there? I know sewing machines can be incredibly complex and finicky, with tons of precise parts, but bell skiving machines seem to be a more simple in their design, and thus have me curious. I'm just a hobbyist and don't do a ton of work, so it wouldn't be pushed to its limits. Would this possibly be an okay purchase or would I just be buying myself a headache? I should also mention that at my current budget my options aren't a cheap skiver or a more expensive, reputable skiver -- my options are a cheap skiver or no skiver. Thanks

    What is the lift height on this machine when in walking foot setup?
  11. Hi, I have a Cobra 8810, which is a post bed machine with a driven roller foot, and I believe it's a clone of the Pfaff 491. The one I have came with both a roller foot and a feed wheel that are perfectly smooth. I'm hoping to replace them with a roller and feed that have texture for grip, but I can't seem to figure out how to remove the roller foot from the drive. I looked at the manual and wasn't able to find anything, either. The problem is that I'm replacing the entire driving mechanism (because the new roller is actually a larger diameter), but after taking off the one screw that holds it in place, the drive shaft remains connected. I don't want to start applying force without knowing what I'm doing. Not sure how I ended up with a smooth roller and feed as every other video I've seen has the machine with a textured roller and feed, but here I am, hoping someone here might have some experience. Thanks.
  12. Not the OP, but for heavy bags you might be better off with something with a straight needle. This has a curved needle to get in on shoe edges. You should check out the Tippmann Boss
  13. Hi, I was wondering if the Landis 12 G is still available, and if so is it in working condition? I'm in the LA area. Thanks.
