  1. Would love to see your work. Welcome aboard
  2. Don’t give up on it. They are really good machines. I have and use two of them. One set up with 135 and one with 69.
  3. Are you glueing two pieces up letting it dry them soaking in water to wet form mold???
  4. Wow Shows everyone’s sniffer is different. I find that tragacanth and neatsfoot oil has very little odor. Sorry for you having such issues. Must me rough having that condition.
  5. I received the Consew 18 today by fedex. I will have to say I am surprised how great the condition is. Apparently it has been used very very little. I have not found any wear at all. I am going to set it up with a servo motor. Should I set it up with a speed reducer. I am planning on setting it up with small needle and thread for sewing billfolds. Also can someone explain why the machine I set up with dual feed adjustment. One for the bottom feed and one for the top feed. Why would you want these to ever be different. Am I missing something or is this just a way to adjust both feeds to be in sync?? I have heard parts can be sorta hard to fine for this machine. Is there anywhere you can find them in case I ever needed something.
  6. Thanks for the information. I am anxiously waiting on it to arrive. Just got it to play with and maybe do really light stuff with small needle and thread. Will it handle 92 thread
  7. I have heard this but not sure.
  8. Thanks for the info and the link
  9. Anyone familiar with the Consew 18 sewing machine. Any info it’s capabilities you could share on it would be appreciated. Thanks
  10. Does anyone know where to get heavy duty hook plates for mechanics belts. Need something heavier than what Springfield sells. They are just stamped out of sheet metal. Or do you have any good ideals on how to make one. I have made a couple but always looking for something better
  11. Good deal. I personally prefer the wooden forms over the other way. Just me I guess. It’s an almost forgotten way.
