  1. Make sense, have to see what numbers foots I have. Thanks, Jacob
  2. Here are a few of the accessories that came with the Landis. What are the roller guides used for? The pressure foots have numbers on them is there a guide for when to use the different foots. It also came with several needles label #3. Hope to get some time next week to run some more test.
  3. BigSiouxSaddlery I have two Landis 1 my neighbor was throwing one out and I grabbed it from the trash. It was not moving at all when I got it but after a lot of oil and cleaning it runs great but has some tension problems. The serial number on that one is 4578. The Landis on the stand I just got has a serial number of 2576 The wax pot has no makers mark on it or numbers so not sure if its original.
  4. RemingtonSteel the stitch on the back being angled made me think something was wrong with the machine. Thank you for the explanation The needle I'm using is a LR
  5. Thank you for all the information I’m out of town will check serial numbers and needles. When I get back, came with a bunch of needles and feet. thanks Jacob
  6. RemingtonSteel Thank you for the explanation of the two different stitches. I will have to get two different color threads just to see how they are coming together. Thanks, Jacob
  7. Bob, Thank you, will try your suggestions.
  8. Pick up a Landis 1 (Lock Stitch Wax Thread Machine) this weekend at a good price. Came with stand and accessories. But no foot peddles or links for foot peddles. Here is a test I did with a piece of 8-9 oz leather using 277 nylon bound thread and a new #200 Schmetz needle. The front looks good to me but the back I'm not sure about is the Landis a saddle stitch style machine? Or do I need to adjust something? Have a manual but don't have any examples of stitching. FYI I know nothing about leather working. Hope to use the Landis to make knife and ax sheaths.
