  1. Yeah.............. I started there - but this is a more mature crowd (LOL) Thank you very much............. Stephen
  2. Singer 180W201 1953-54 I have some research to do........ Not much out there. Was offered 'First Refusal' Original owner, fully functional. Only thing I have found is a Parts Manual. Not even listed on Ismacs. It does appear that one major difference compared to the 51W is that the 180W is belt drive vs the 51W direct drive. Having a difficult time associating a dollar value.
  3. Thank you............ I will start with #69 and go from there - seems like a safe path. Stephen
  4. Soooo....... If I understand you correctly. The same old 69 thread, Bonded nylon or Poly(?) (I mostly use 92) and the DCx27 in 16 or 18 will do the trick? Is 69 the typical safe MAX thread? Thank you Wiz - Stephen
  5. Greetings...................... Hoping you are still around. Today I am picking up a MO-6716S FF6-50H. My primary purpose will be mostly sewing Sunbrella marine canvas. Just curious if you have dialed in yours any further. Looking specifically for what Needles (Size and Point) and thread size you have selected. Thank you, Stephen
  6. I am still having a problem finding good reference pictures to be able to answer your question. Arrrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhh..............................................
  7. Acquired the following 4 pieces of equipment - right place, right time, good network of friends and informants............ Landis 5 in 1 Landis 3 in 1 Landis Model 30 (not sure) Splitter and the Champion Model 11 Splitter. Cannot seem to find much on the Model 11 - just mainly the Model 10. The picture shows it with the knife removed. Appears to be complete with no visible damage. I am seriously considering doing a tear down deep clean, etc. Anytime the words Champion and Splitter are in the same sentence all I seem to get are Log Splitters. Does anyone have any documentation hidden away somewhere?? My biggest concern, other than trial and error, is setting the knife properly after I get it sharpened. Not looking to do any painting...... It's got very nice patina. Will most likely be selling this one after I look more closely at the Landis 30. Also probably keep the Landis 3 in 1 and sell off the 5 in 1. Thank you for your time - truly appreciated. Stephen
  8. Greetings...................... I have no history on this piece. Was given to me by a co-worker that came from his parents estate. Google search comes back with nothing, nanda, zero.......... Would love to learn more about it. I would love to do my best to restore (rejuvenate) this piece and hang it in the shop. At first glance it appears to be mold (maybe). The leather is rather soft and supple. I am not going to attempt anything until the masses have had a chance to chime in. Thank you, Stephen
  9. Looks very familiar. I have a 'Family' servo and a speed reducer. This is also somewhat new to me and still trying to figure out all the adjustment points. Stephen
  10. Thank you!!!!! Conversion today was successful. Only Issue I am working around now is Forward and Reverse stitch lengths using the stops. Had to slide the small bracket up on the stitch length selector to limit forward and balance it with reverse. No big deal. Did everything you mentioned and watched a Uwe video for a 441. Good time for an in-depth cleaning. Added the Speed Reduction today, big difference. Used some JB Weld to fill in the grooves on the Throat Plate and Feed Dog (extra set) to minimize markings, something I had been fighting with on some of the harness work. This machine came out of the LL Bean R&D Lab. Never used for production. All in all it has been a very good day. Thank you, Stephen
