  1. Can someone point me to where I can find detailed instructions on putting a needlepoint work on a belt and finishing it into a belt. Not having any luck googling it. I am getting several request for this work and would like to study up on it first . Thanks
  2. I have a one ton press that I use to punch holes in my belts. I use wood spacers for each size belt to ensure the holes are centered. I have three old Stimpson rivet,snap presses that I picked up off of eBay. Solid cast iron wonderful press. I have each set up for a particular rivet or snap task. I made or modified the tooling for each. I also have a old 5-10 ton not sure which arbor press that I may set up for small cricket press.
  3. I knew from the get go I had no interest in hand sewing. Did all of that that I wanted years ago when I was in reenacting. Bought a CB3200 first. Now have a Adler 69 and a Adler 30-7.

    Finally found a Adler 30-7

    Ok good advice. Nothing is on it right now. It was always used as a foot or hand crank. Does it hurt anything to dissable the brake on a servo motor? I have one on my Adler 69 and hate the brake. I was a little Leary of the patchers for what others said about them not being good stickers.. This thing actually lays down a pretty good stitch line.

    Well I finally went and bought the Adler 30-7. Glad I made the trip. This machine has not seen a lot of use. In the same family since new with just occasional use. A big shout and thank you to Glenn for taking the time to answer my questions help get a couple things adjusted on it. Next in line is putting a sero motor on it. I will post some pics after finish gettting it set up.,
