  1. Hello everyone I have a problem that I can’t fix. I am making dog collars for a bunch of friends. They are about 1 inch wide on the ends. Then I go to stitch the end I need to make a 90 degree turn. When I do this either the stitch skips or it makes a big loop underneath like the tension is off. If some one could shoot a video or explain to me how to make a 90 degree stitch in a Landis 3 that would be great. Thanks.
  2. Thank you. I’ll give him a call and let you know how it goes.
  3. CowboyBob, Perfect that makes sense. I appreciate you taking the time to explain this to me. It helps me learn more about this machine and maybe one day I can pass the information on. That is why I love these forums.
  4. MikeRock, Do you have any contact information for him?
  5. Hello everyone, I have a Landis #3 sewing machine that I have been using for a few months now. I am I’m the market for some parts. The main part I’m looking for is a presser foot. The one I currently have only has one fork. I would like to get one with both forks or even a spare that I could try brazing a piece on. I just don’t want to ruin the one that I have. Also would be interested in just about any other parts. I have googled this and hit many different websites but, so far you all have helped me way more than a simple google search. Thanks in advance.
  6. CowboyBob, That’s a great point about the splashing and getting on my leather I did not think about this. Could you explain further why grease would be a bad? I just see a lot of metal on metal contact on the under gears and moving parts where I would think grease would be good and last longer; rather than the oil running off. This is just my ignorant thought and am in no way saying you are wrong. I am just trying to learn as much as I can and would love a further explanation. I love this machine and want it to last me forever so what ever is best for the machine I will do. Thanks.
  7. Ole south, Thanks for the input. I’ll get some grease on the ol machine today. I’m in Utah so the humidity is not a worry for me here luckily.
  8. Hello, I am new to this forum and have a Landis #3. I just got my stitch skipping problem fixed thanks to this forum and now I’m looking for input on what you all use to lubricate these old machines. I have seen what looks like grease on some parts and just regular sewing oil in some other parts. Thank you in advance.
  9. Sbrownn, thanks for your input. I cycled the thing a million times and finally understood what you were talking about (no fault of your own I was looking in the wrong spot) I got the bobbin in line the best I could by adjusting the screws on the side and it has worked in making two dog collars without missing a stitch. So I think we are on our way to getting this thing figured out. Thank you again.
  10. Hello, I have been using information from this forum for a while now but this is my first post. I have a Landis #3 that is new to me. I use it to make cart harnesses for horses. I have been using it for a few weeks now and it is skipping stitches every once in a while. I have found the problem that the thread does not go around the bobbin but passes on the side. I tried adjusting some of the timing but haven't dared adjust the needle timing. I can send some photos when I get home, but had a few minutes so thought I would hop on here to see if I could get some help. Thank you for your input.
