  1. 2 packs of 10 new neeldes size 7 for Junker & ruh SD28. Sold my machine so needles a no longer needed. If i can help anyone out with these let me know. not a trader, fair price
  2. Hey there, for sale are two completely cleaned singer leather sewing machines. Both have been taken apart and have been cleaned and put together again. Internal parts also cleaned like new. Both have the original base, cast iron for the 29K and a huge cast iron frame with oak top for the 45K. Also a lot of extra parts available. Don't need the jackpot, just would like the money i have put in back. So 450,- for both machines and ik would be good to go. Location: the neatherlands please PM for details or pictures

  4. hi mokerson, Thank you for your opinion! it is valued. But since you can tell me blanchard might be lacking, can you also point some out that would be good indeed? thank you!!
  5. hi, I was wondering if there are any connaisseurs here that might be able to tell me where to buy good quality leatherworking tools of european manufacuring? I know about vergez blanchard and doldokki. I was looking in to Barry king, seems realy nice to me but import duties will be off the scale and i do not wish to pay twice. I don't mind paying for quality though. Are there any european tool makers i am missing? I also have seen palosanto but again, to far and import difficulties. If anyone could help me out with tips or tool makers, please let me know. If there has been a topic about european tools makers i have missed it, please tell me where to find it and i'll go there. Thank you all in advance, regards, niles
  6. i will leave the body in tact, but the shaft was bent, so i had to take it out and i need to order a new one.....
  7. Okay, i will be smart about it and not separate them! i thought it would be easy after removing the bolts but i guess not.
  8. hello, Me and my questions again. I have taken apart a 29K71 and was able to get the 4 bolts out the keep the body on the foot (or i thought so...) But i also see 2 pins with i can not reach because they are supposed to come out by hitting them from the top (which is through the topside and down under where the shaft would be..... which is way too long to reach. Also i was wondering if there is any soldering? or are these two pen the last thing holding it together? If anyone has any experience with this, or could tell me from that experience to just leave it...? thank you!!! regards, Niles
  9. nice! i already did but great to get confirmation. it is my first 45k so learning by doing is the motto here. I have several other parts i do not know how to used though. (2 different bobbins, several attachment plate for next to the foot..... and i am missing the presser roller? are they still available somewhere?
  10. hi guys, another question. If you looks at the picture you see a small hook from the (82525) thread controlling lever spring. It looks to me like it is supposed to hooks over the (82551) thread controlling lever? when i took the machine apart it was not hooked over but i am pretty sure it is ment to. And if so, do i need to wind it up or just hook it on 'like is'...? thanks!
