  1. Nice piece of work there and beautiful execution. Well done!
  2. Looking to change my display name to be inline with new company name. How can I go about doing this?
  3. Thanks, I thought I posted there originally so I appreciate you moving the thread
  4. Hey all. Let me preface this by saying that this is my first walking foot sewing machine and I just picked it up. I know only what I have read here and been able to glean through the few videos online of this model. That said, I am fairly mechanically inclined and am looking to tinker with this a bit myself to see if I can get it working. My issue is that the presser foot is not walking. It is also not moving all the way down to the work surface (which I assume is not right). I am able to lift the foot with both the lever and knee. Also, there is a lot of slop in the lever on the back of the machine which again I assume is because the presser foot is not traveling all the way down to the work surface. I am looking for a manual for this machine if anyone has a link to one to help with diagnosis but given the wealth of knowledge here, I was hoping that someone could point me in a direction to start. Here is a quick video to help with gaining an understanding of what is going on.
  5. Gotcha, and thank you. The lack of info on this machine is really astounding. I guess I will give it a pass. Thanks again!
  6. Hey all, I stumbled across this in my search for an inexpensive machine to start sewing with however I cannot find any specs on it at all...it is like the machine doesn't exist. I am looking for a machine that will be able to do belts, bags, wallets...would anyone have information on this machine to let me know if it will work for me? Thanks!
  7. I appreciate the response. There is no money in the repair, it is a simple return to functionality fix. I really cannot believe that no one makes something like this, I would think it would be a fairly common request.
  8. Hey all. I have looked everywhere and cannot believe that I am the only one to ask for such a thing so I must be failing at google. I am looking for a 1"/25mm center bar buckle which screws on....meaning I am replacing a broken buckle but do not have access to the keeper rivets so I want one that screws in just like a watch buckle but in a center-bar configuration. Make sense? Does anyone have any leads on this? Thanks!
  9. sent PM yesterday about the irons, no response yet =)
