    Shout Out to Toledo Sewing and part needed

    Update Ron at A1 helped with a few more parts. He has the patience of Jobe!! This is for a museum donation but I'll use it a little to make sure it's safe and reliable (and have fun doing it)! The name plate has been remove and my question is: By measuring the distance between the hole centres would someone on here know weather it was tagged as a SEIKO or CONSEW? No shadow from the nameplate for a hint .Most SEIKO tags were rectangular and CONSEW more oval It's either a SEIKO LSW- 8BL or CONSEW 255 RB Once I figure it out, I'll see if someone has a tag on a parts machine they would part with. YinTx I could make you a bushing but a local guy would save you the postage and you could take it back if it was too tight. The new oil impregnated bronze bushings are awesome! I'd recommend popping the old one out, make notes on how loose it is and take to a local millwright. They might even have one in stock. Enjoying the cold by sewing inside!!

    Thanks I've seen these folks on line but wanted to stay on this side of "the pond" if possible and hopefully deal with a member here on Leatherworker.net.

    Thanks Glen. I was told by the gentleman on the phone at Toledo the part was not available. If I had a pic or a sample I could duplicate one. I have a lathe, forge, belt grinder and lots of experience fixing and making parts. Just not on sewing machines
  7. Hello all My first post as a new member from Canada! I picked up an old Seiko walking foot machine with the nameplate and decals missing . Looks like an old Consew 255 or Seiko LSW from the 60s) The hook assembly was a little sloppy so I ordered a replacement from Toledo Sewing on Friday. The fella on the phone said he's have it in the mail Monday morning. I told him I learned of his business from here at Leatherworker.net. so a shout out to you folks as well! I still need a Feed Driving Eccentric pin PN 10634. Does anyone have or know where I could find one? I use to be a gunsmith so working with small, moving, interconnected parts comes easy to me. Had I seen one before I could turn one on my lathe but I have never seen one before. Any help would be appreciated The body casting is marked SEIKO STW8808147 and the SN is SW8808147 Sammy from Ontario Canada!!
