  1. Completed the machine today. Will bring it to a friend next week. He is a sewing machine mechanic with 55 years of experience. We will fine tune it together
  2. Thank you Castle I have another skiving machine arriving from Poland on Tuesday. Cheers
  3. Today, I spend several hours grinding - to fit the new arm to the Fortuna 3S skiving machine. To be able to use the arm, I had to fit a 2 mm metal plate between the arm and the machine. For that reason I had to enlarge the hole to make the shaft going through the arm rund freely.
  4. Good morning Falseyellow How did you adjust the position? The arm has alignment pins or? Cheers DanishMan
  5. Starting to put the machine together today. As mentioned earlier, I had taken the huge 3S arm off the machine. The plan is to fit an arm from a older Fortuna machine, that I bought last year. The 3S arm was attached to the machine with four big bolts, whereas the normal arm is fitted with three bolts. For that reason, I had to drill three new holes. One of the holes went through the structure holding the knife shaft. I had to make a wedge with a hole through it. For that I used metal from the big 3S arm. To make the bolt fit, I also used a piece of of metal from an old skiving machine handle. The transport wheel shaft goes through the arm. I had to make this hole slightly bigger by using a dreamed tool. Tomorrow, I will keep putting the machine together.
  6. Hi Cumberland Considering the amount of time going into this, it is not worth the money - compared to having a job. But right now, I am not working due to corona, so it fills out my day. Besides, very few people in Denmark know anything about skiving machines, so maybe within time I can build knowledge, that could turn into a small business. Kind regards Danishman
  7. Hi Jimi I will just have to let the paint harden for a few weeks. Then I will start assembling the machine again. I had to fit a 2 mm metal plate between the arm the machine. I also had to drill new holes, as the arm is attached with three bolts, whereas the 3S arm had four bolts - but I think, it will work out. Cheers Søren
  8. I paid 1000 dkr - which is about 150 USD. Cheers
  9. Hi Jonas I grew up in Aalborg, but now live close to Copenhagen. Cheers
  10. Thank you Folker. It makes sense. Cheers DanishMan
  11. The needle is 0.5 - 1 mm off (it's a machine of a friend of mine) I will ask her to change needle before trouble shooting further. Is it possible to move the needle bar frame sideways? I have not found any guidance on that in manuals for Durkopp, Singer 111, Consew 225. Kind regards Danishman
  12. Dear Friends Could anyone here help me with adjusting the needle bar frame - in order to center the needle in the feed dog? Kind regards DanishMan
  13. Hi Jonas The Thyregod color is very nice, but in fact the original colour is even darker. I see that you are Danish. Where do you live? Cheers Søren
  14. Arm fitted today. Two mm metalplate fitted between arm and side of the machine.
