  1. Glenn did you ever sell the parts you had?
  2. Yea I want to do that but it will take me a bit to get the ball rolling. but I will be selling parts for sure at some point this year.
  3. I can see smaller shops not wanting to do these parts as they are low volume and multiple set ups on each part if you don't have a 5 axis machine. Do you still have the drawings of these parts? If you can scan them that might shorten my design time.
  4. That is my plan. Working out how to get it done as effective as I can. Have to do my real day job first so I can live indoors.
  5. Mine was all gummed up and was lifting very erratic. I lubed it up each day that I fiddled with the machine and once it sunk in it stopped lifting all together. The set screw on the left side that controls the clamp pressure was not touching the block at all. I snugged that up and now it lifts around 1/8 inch above the material.
  6. Well I got the video of the new wireing and belt loaded up to you tube. I will try to do some more videos this week if I get time. new power and belt no head on base
  7. And that is where this came from. The man who had it before me was in the service for 25 years. He bought as surplus before he retired. I don't think he ever finished getting it set up and running.
  8. Matt I will try to do one this week. Might have to post it to YouTube. So I can link it here
  9. Agreed. I feel kind of lucky to be the owner of a piece of history.
  10. I lived in Shelburne until i moved to the last free state in new England. New Hampshire. Started messing with leather just before I moved. Now two years later picking it back up. This forum is great place to learn.
  11. I had only ever seen pictures. They don't really do it justice
  12. Yea i can see that. While I wanted to go whole hog and buy cobra, cowboy or a techsew with all the bells and accessories the budget was not going to get me there for a while. I got the 97-10 for way less then half of a new machine and have one spent 200 more to get it up and running. New modern Belts on both the motor to fly wheel and from the clutch up to the head. I made a new clutch disk out of some 11-12 weight leather i had left over and it works perfect. I can get very good control of the speed and with some planning I can slow to a stop right where i need to. And now that I have it up and running I can see myself making lots of parts for it. I am a machinist / CNC programmer and can make about anything. I have a design in my head to be able to use the 794 needles with out lowering the needle bar.
