    Help choosing a servo motor for a ferdco pro 2000

    Ended up going with the one from leathermachineco/cobra 5 year warranty, sponsor here, has other parts for my ferdco (needed more bobbins), and the tech and sales folk I talked with were really helpful. Helps that they are also in state so shipping should be pretty quick. Helps that @Cobra Steve has so many good things said here about everything from that company.

    Help choosing a servo motor for a ferdco pro 2000

    yeah I'm leaning toward the brushless right now, helps I can go pick one up at artisan since I'm in the bay area, the other option would be the one from leather machine co but the artisan is 750 watt

    Help choosing a servo motor for a ferdco pro 2000

    That's what I was thinking originally too, but my table has a sheet metal body and it would be a pain to turn that on and off without the remote switch away from the motor itself, with a normal table this would be great...

    Help choosing a servo motor for a ferdco pro 2000

    @dikman thanks so much for the help that's kind of what I figured, any opinion/advice on brushed vs brushless?
  7. I just recently purchased a ferdco pro 2000 (juki 441 clone) it's 19 years old and very low hours came with a clutch motor. I'm thinking I'd really like the upgrade to a servo motor. I'm trying to decide brushed or brushless, experience with RC vehicles makes me lean toward brushless but maybe the torque needs point toward the brushed... The machine already has a speed reducer though it is a greased shaft, and not on ball bearings (a future upgrade if needed). Motors I'm considering. Leather Machine Co. $145 plus shipping https://www.leathermachineco.com/product/brushless-digital-d-c-servo-motor/ Techsew 550 $119 http://www.techsew.com/techsew-550-servo-motor.html Toledo industrial machines fs 550s (family sew) $135 shipped https://www.tolindsewmach.com/motors.html Reliable sewquiet $169 shipped (amazon) https://reliablecorporation.com/products/sewquiet-6000sm-servomotor Artisan acf-625 $195 I can pick this one up at their shop.http://www.artisansew.com/motors.html The other thing I can't figure out if I would want or need is a needle positioner/synchronizer some of these have the option some don't and it varies the price a lot. Maybe there are other great options I missed, don't have the money for the EFKA but please share thoughts and experience. I've been reading the forums and gleaning information but wondered what the consensus is on these things. Thanks

    Dixon pricking irons

    Dixon pricking irons made in England. I don’t know how old they are I purchased from a shop going out of business (owner is 96) they are not made any more they are stamped England and the spi number sets of 4 5 6 and 7 spi they are hand made I just found I prefer Japanese style irons. Shoot me an email hidegear1 (at) gmail.com would like to sell all at once but might be willing to sell in spi sets
