  1. SOLD ! That worked well ! Thanks.
  2. Hi folks, I have the following for sale. https://www.ebay.com/itm/265347237582 Drop a line if interested, thanks.
  3. With no further info provided, I'm not quite comfortable changing that slide setting, so I set the fwd length a bit longer than the rev length. Doing good for now but will maybe experiment with it later when these awnings/canopies are done. Thanks.
  4. Hey Constabulary, do you have a more complete manual for this 211G166 machine ? My manual only has basic adjustments and makes no mention of the setting in the previous post. Thanks if you will help.
  5. I found this to be true and adjusted as best I can. I now have 5.5 TPI precisely in both directions, thanks. Now according to the attached illustration, would lengthening the radius adjustment at the circled t-slot bearing increase the stitch length in both fwd and rev ? If so, would any other adjustments be necessary to maintain timing of the related components / mechanisms ? At a glance, it looks like this would increase the MAX stroke of the feed dog. Just wondering, Thanks again.
  6. Here is an interesting old Singer machine. For all to enjoy. I've never seen this model before, Cheers https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/233862075251190/?ref=search&referral_code=marketplace_search&referral_story_type=post
  7. IIRC, the reversing length is identical, or very nearly so to the fwd. length. Will verify when I get back to the shop on Thursday. Can this machine be modified to stitch 4 per inch ? (fairly easily) Thanks !
  8. Hi folks. My 211G166 has been working flawlessly. The service manual says max stitch length is 5 per inch but the longest stitch I can get is 7 > 7-1/2 per inch. How do I go about getting it to 5, and is it possible to tweak it to an even longer stitch ? I'll be doing some larger canvas parts and need to get the longest stitch possible to minimize puckering over the long runs. Thanks,
  9. Nice machine ! Those (Gast ? ) air motors tend to be a bit of an air hog, can be rough on a small compressor. BTW, what is that coupe in the background ? Cheers,
  10. Thanks for posting that ! Very interesting indeed. I LOVE the mechanics demonstrated from so long ago. They likely used sticks, pins and "trial and error" to design with, more so than math and computers. Amazing ! Thanks again,
  11. This is one I made that worked beautifully in a 2" fork. When precisely fitted, there is no backlash so it runs silently and quite fast ... as in a sewing machine. Lube is critical as well as the heat treatment of the mating surfaces.
  12. That is known as a Reuleaux Triangle. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reuleaux_triangle I made some of these with a CNC mill while experimenting. Cheers.
  13. I have a Singer 7-33 that I am parting out .... or selling "as is, missing parts". Might be able to take out what you are wanting. Most reasonable offers likely accepted. Cheers
