  1. Well, all I can find is a service manual. Anybody have or know where the user manual could be found?
  2. I just picked up this machine and am tracking down manuals and subclass info. There are two manuals I see. One for a 4180-1 and another for a 4189-5. I assume mine is the -5 but….just checking before I print Next, does any know where I can find subclass info. Further, any idea how old the machine is? thanks michael bucksbootsoregon.com
  3. Try Baltor and sons in San Fran. Huge stock and knowledge from Todd.
  4. Hello, I’m searching for a source these guards as they have slipped away from my bosses supply lines and we’re having trouble finding a new source. Any help is much appreciated. michael
  5. Yep. Depends what you need. I used both mj foley and teamworksales when i was refurbing my 145. Mj foley can get most things it takes a while. Teamworksales can get alot and are quicker.
  6. I talked to Dan and he was unsure about the feed roller. Knives are interchangeable. Sharpening stone is unique but CR has one. Dan thought most parts would not interchange. Really I’m mostly inquiring about the feed roller.
  7. I picked up a used Consew bell skiver and need a feed roller. Does anyone now if the Fortuna/Fratelli feed rollers fit a Consew. What about other parts?
  8. Thanks again. I’ll keep working on it. I cycled 15-20 times today. Should have oil in all the spaces so we’ll see in the coming days. BTW the belt on your 341 is much wider than the one on my 1341. Normal?
  9. Is it acceptable to pop it using the button and hand wheel?
  10. The safety clutch seems to functuon fine once it gets fully reset. The issue is that it only half way resets with button and hand wheel which is the condition at the start of this next clip. When the tab is fully engaged it stitches just fine. Sewed nearly an entire shoe with no issue. Any input on why it requires a screwdriver to complete the reset?
  11. Here is how inset mine up. The table I ended up with won’t really accommodate the speed reducer underneath. I tightened the belt such that as the machine tips back to the base the belt comes tight. Very much more and it would not settle onto the base. The belt has about a 1/2” deflection in the center. HTH michael
  12. Sorry, yeah, I was trying to upload the videos directly to LW and kept shrinking thinking I could get small enough to get under the size limit. When I realized i needed to utube them i forgot to put the longer version up. I appreciate the dealer advice, however, one of the perils of living in the rural western states of the USA is the lack of many services (ie. No dealer for many many miles.). So I’m often left with dealing across the many miles without the luxury of in person assistance. I will certainly contact the dealer i bought from but also am the type to try and fugure things out. I will shoot another video to show the clutch engagement or lack thereof. thanks again!
  13. I spent so time pondering and poking around the levers and discovered the mechanism is sticky. When I reset the clutch it does not go all the way into place on its own. I pushed a little on it and it popped into place. So now the question is: why? Seems it should fully engage when the clutch reset is done. Oh the joys of learning a new machine. any thoughts on the ‘sticky’ motion on this type of safety clutch? michael
  14. I bought a used 1341 and it doesn’t want to stitch consistantly. It be ok for a bit then start tripping the clutch after 2,3,4 stitches. It seems to me there is alot of play in the clutch but I’m rather new to this sort of thing so I’ll pitch it to y’all. Shot a couple short videos to show what is going on. After watching Uwe’s clutch video it looks to me the clutch is not fully engaging the slot in the shaft. As always any help is much appreciated!! michael
