  1. Hi, I am looking for a company that makes dies for press machines... I have a press with a motor on it, with a big fly wheel, and would like to get some custom dies made for it. Any suggestions? Even better if in the Boston / New England area. Thank you!

    Mystery machine....

    So, I have a machine I picked up years ago... and am only now getting around to working on. I was hoping people here could help me figure out who made it, and more importantly, where I can get some dies made for it, so I can start to use it!! The die pictured is the die that was in it when I got it. I do not know if it was specific to the machine, or just something that the previous owner made work. Any help would be appreciated!!

    Singer 29-4 Patcher for sale

    Hi, I posted about this and another machine a few days ago, but it was pointed out to me that my post was not very clear, and having the machine in the title will help. The other machine is a Singer 51W54, which I will also write up in more detail, in its own post, probably tomorrow. The Singer 29-4 has not been used in at least 15 years, but stored in my workshop... so .. temperature controlled, normal humidity etc... I picked it up for a particular project, that never happened, so i really do not have any experience using it. I have not completely dug it out of the corner that it is in, to do any test stitching... when I do.. the price might go up I am located in the greater Boston area. Please feel free to contact me here, and if you woudl like a phone call back, just send me a PM. Dantan

    Two used Sewing machines for sale

    Hi Webicons, I am going to put them up on craigslist today I think.... ... any thoughts on a fair price? I am not trying to make a killing or anything... to be honest, I need the floor space more then I need the cash. D
  9. Long story short, I have two older singer sewing machines that i need to find a new home for. I am going to post here what they are, and i am hoping you all can help me figure out a fair price for them, and who knows.. maybe a buyer? Singer 29-4 Patch sewing machine. In Dusty condition... I had it tuned up I think 16 years ago... only used it a few times for a project that was discontinued. It has sat unused for close to 15 years, but I have reason to think it is not functional. I am thinking $300 to $500 ?? is that appropriate? The other machine is a Singer 51 W 54 Post machine. This machine was tuned up in the fall, and is the machine that I used for the last 20+ year. It has been a work horse for me, stitching pretty heavy strap leather , until I got a flat bed PFAFF a couple of months ago. This is the machine that I am really not sure what to ask for it, because I am not seeing very many of them out there for sale. so I am thinking $200 to $400 ??? Both machines are located in the Boston MA area. The 51W54 is set up, and easily testable.. the 29-4 needs to be dug out. Thank you for any advice!! Dantan
