  1. Well I'll be damned the #25 worked flawlessly...thank you
  2. i am just sewing normal veg tan so basically i should use the smaller needle on the list?
  3. ok so i have a CB3200 and on the threadexchange site they say you can run 277 thread through 180/24 and 230/26 needles. what would be the advantage to running this thread through different sizes of needles? TIA, Memphis
  4. i have the same machine and want to do the same thing you described so i am wondering if you ever got it figured out
  5. $2000 - Pickup Only Alamogordo, NM (I can meet up within reason as I would have to borrow a truck cause I only have a Harley) I have upgraded to another machine and no longer need my Cobra Class 26 I bought from MLS back in March of this year. Runs perfect with all the accessories that came with it. 4-way thread stand LED light Attachable Work Platform Flip Down Roller Guide Bobbins and Needle Bobbin winder The Cobra Class 26 is a cylinder arm machine that features a compound feed walking foot. This machine will sew approximately up to a 5/8" thickness, which would be great for items such as holsters, sheaths, some tack, bags, belts, chaps, wallets, and other leather goods, it features a top loading, larger, U style bobbin for amazing thread capacity. The Class 26 is more versatile in that it comes on a pedestal stand and you can get inside a bag or garment, as well as sew something like a holster that need to drop off the end of the arm in order to remain flat, and you can sew items or straps that need to have a bit of a curve to them. Comparable to a scaled down version of the Cobra Class 4, the Cobra Class 26 is a small cylinder bed powerhouse capable of sewing materials up to 5/8" (9.5 mm). The Cobra Class 26 sewing machine features a digital D.C. servo motor, compound feed walking foot and speed reducer. Uses thread sizes 46-207.
  6. thank you for all the helpful ideas...it is appreciated
  7. OK, if i use an airbrush to apply Fiebings Pro Dye to a project, what is the best/most reliable/cost effective cleaner to run through the airbrush when i am done? TIA -- chris
  8. Thank you. The Maltese cross and the ribbon are both stamps and yes those are brass rivets Thank you to the both of you...i appreciate it
  9. So I got an order from a husband and wife, both firefighters in GA and they wanted the Leukemia Awareness Ribbon for their son. Very satisfying.
  10. thank for all your help. looking at what I got i can definitely see the needles are too small. I found these so I bought 1 of each so I can test out which works better.
  11. I am with you on this. While i usually buy my leather from actual tanneries, it is nice to be able to go into my local Tandy (90 miles away) and the girls that work there actually know their stuff. They are always very helpful and since the transition within the company, have tried to always accommodate me. They do in a pinch for the small things I need and occasionally have some pretty nice clean shoulders and double shoulders for a decent price. Plus when i run out of pro dye, they always have it in stock. I needed some pro black the other day and I ordered it on Thursday and they immediately UPS'd it to me and I got it the next day. I like that. It was awesome that they actually take pride in servicing their customers. Now, these guys might be the exception to the rule as I have had a lot of conversations with them in the store. They come from leather working backgrounds and their fathers and uncles are in the craft back in Mexico. So maybe I am just lucky to have some good ones here.
  12. ok so i found these on amazon...will they work?
  13. thank you for the info... can you recommend a brand with the specific numbers or is this acceptable? i am not that good at just knowing what all the numbers mean LOL
