  1. Hello, I got a bunch of these spring clips, but they dont have a rivet hole. Can I use them for sheaths? I cant figure out how to secure them in leather properly. Thanks
  2. Hi, I had quite a few problems getting some suppliers for my CB4500. Local shoemakeing stores were of little help and alot of UK and USA companies only wanted to ship in bulk quantities. Just wanted to share where I finally got the needles and thread. (Had to re-learn abit of german for that). Needles: -https://nadel24.de/ (794LR in packs of 10). Most other companies had a minimum pack of 50 or 100 Thread: - https://www.amann.com/company/location-contacts/ They have their SERAFIL thread which comes in size 8 (346). I contacted my local supplier in my country. Machine: -http://www.sieck.de/ most of us know about this. Hope this helps someone.
  3. Hey thanks for the reply. Yeah, most of my knowledge was gained by browsing some comparison topics around here so it has alot of holes in it. I do remember someone saying its good to replace the needle plate and feed dog on the 370 with smooth ones (Kh 205m was the part i believe). And the price seems for for a machine like that.
  4. Hey, i found a dealer who has both these machines in stock. I asked him to show me some proof of sewing (before i make the drive and test it) and to give me a price. it was 2850€ for 374 and 3500€ for 370. Now as far as I understand the only difference is that 374 has smooth feed dogs? Which one would you choose? The 370 is more expensive, but i think this might be because its newer (based on pictures). The 374 might be more suited for leatherwork due to smooth feed dogs. I'm attaching both photos. Thanks
  5. I realised im an idiot and this is ok. Juat never noticed it beforw and it seemed weird. Another question is why does my thread bunch in the beginning and end? I think the extra thread on top is getting caught?
  6. Hello there, i have a pfaff 335 and have encountered some issues. The hook grabs the top thread and drags it all around the bobbin casing and then makes a stitch. I made some progress on it, but hoping fore some help Im using a size 100 needle with 92 thread, top and bottom. Adding some pictures below Thanks in advance
  7. Hey, there. Yeah, I basically made the same order from Rickert and Patina and asked politely if they can ship asap. And they did, so heres to hoping it gets here soon. If anyone else searches for leather suplies in central europe, here's what i use (besides local) https://www.rickert-werkzeug.de/ https://www.patin-a.de/ http://www.lederhaus.de/ And for leather: https://buyleatheronline.com/en/ All reccomended.
  8. Hello, I'm in dire need of some navy blue or royal blue fiebings oil dye. I can't get it in Slovenia, and shipping will take too long. Does anyone know of any physical store that sells it, southern austria or northern italy? Also if anyone living near Slovenia has it and doesnt need it ASAP I'm willing to buy it off you at 2 times the price of the full bottle (even if its half empty). Cheers
  9. Thank you very much! Considering I already own a perfectly good pfaff 335, this doesnt seem a reasonable choice. Cheers
  10. Hey there. A coworker moved inti a new house that was owned by an old shoemaker. He found this old singer 29k33 there. What are these machines used for? Is it good for leather and if so what thickness range? Is it a good find? I was thinking of buying it of him, but would want to know if its even worth it. Cheers
  11. Thank you both, i'm gonna look into inverted carving, seems like i'll get the best results. Also, yeah, I've been thinking of making some of the stamps on my own (like the middle squares) from bolts i have.
  12. Hi there, this might be a dumb question , but how do you widen a line you carved? Im trying to carve embroidery patterns like pic related. I tried to widen them with my stylus but they're stil too thin and it looks bad. Or is it best to do a double line, but that might get messy. Cheers
  13. Thanks for everything. I decided to just wing it and I made a pattern myself and made a hat from some cheap fur i had, to get a feel of how it sits. One thing, alot of sites mention a "blanket stitch" for sewing. I just saddle stitched it with a 1mm waxed thread and it looks nice. So is saddle stitching ok, or can it rip? Im sorry for all the questions, but fox furs here arent really cheap and i dont want to ruin them. Cheers
  14. Thanks! I also found out that in America oca its also called a "coonskin cap" and that brings many more results. Cheers
  15. Hi there, anyone know where I can get an online version of patterns like these? I want to buy it, but i'm not keen on paying 30€ for shipping (and the wait time). Also my search engine here seems to be broken abit (searching "hat" returns nothing"), so I appreciate all the help. Cheers
