    Hello, this is my first post.

    The number two skiving machine, that I am working on is a clone of yours - 99% identical. Really interesting, that one can still find new parts for this machine in China and India. I prefer original parts, but they can be very hard to find or ridiculously expensive. What sewing machines have you been working on? I have seven PFAFF machines at the moment - the latest one being a PFAFF 353. Kind regards Søren

    Hi RockyAussie Everything is missing. But my plan is to fit a vacuum cleaner. I will post photos later. Kind regards Søren

    Hello, this is my first post.

    Regarding motor RPM, I recently bought a Fortuna table. The motor says 1400 rpm, and it has a fairly big pulley wheel. It the skiving machine goes too fast, it will not discard the scrap. I am restoring two skiving machines at the moment. I am going to fit two motors. A constant speed motor for the knife and a servo motor for the feed wheel. Kind regards Søren

    Hi Jimi In Denmark it would probably be around 200 Euros to have a bucket made. I will just wait and see - The machine does not need vacuum to run. Cheers Soren

    fortuna scrap bucket

    Dear Friends Four days ago I bought an old table for a skiving machine. The table was in a sorry state, but I am going to paint it. Originally the table was set up for vacuum, but this had been removed at some point. I would like to restore the vacuum - possible via a vacuum cleaner - but I need the bucket. Would anyone here have a scrap bucket from a Fortuna skiving machine. I am interested in buying. Kind regards Danishman PS - The picture shows the bucket on my wife's machine

    Hello, this is my first post.

    By the way. I have been using the user manual from a Sunstar Skiving Machine, which is a Fortuna clone (and still in production). http://www.sunstarmexico.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Manual-KM-76_MME.pdf

    Hello, this is my first post.

    Hi Sainte Sorry for my late response. The mechanism on your machine - to engage the grinding wheel - is different from the skiving machines, that I have had. So I am unable to help you. Kind regards Danishman

    Pfaff 145 - H2 - 6/01-BLN

    Hi Upholstery I have had five 145 machine, and on all of them, the feed dog has not had the dropping movement. The same thing on three 335, one 545 and one 345, that I have had. On non walking foot machines like the 331, 143, 543 etc, the feed dog drops. Brgds Danishman

    Hi Look Thank you. The restoration has come to a standstill for the moment. I am short of two vital parts. Will wait until I find these - might take two days; or two years. Brgds Danishman
