  1. Thanks everyone who commented. It was a lot of fun learning about feed eccentric and safety clutches. Well worth the nothing I paid for it.
  2. Whatever it takes to better than the rest, and whatever I do is.
  3. I’ll have to look. I use two different types. The needles that came with it were ball point so I swapped needles. No doing anything to the machines I use 23 in the 16 and 17 system for my 29k. The others fit my Union Special 61300 and I’ll have to look. Crazy thing, neither will work in the other, but the both work in the patcher. Go finger.
  4. No complaints, makes nothing but money, and people look better. Only used for 207. My TAKING 29k is maxed at 138, but it’s brown. Doesn’t matter what rig is chosen, it matters who’s driving. Whatever the operator is using it for is still gonna look like the last thing made by that operator. 15000$ machine, or a goodwill freebee. You still gotta add skill.
  5. There’s one that gives me the blues now and again, but I get over it. My grandpa worked there in the 40’s and 50’s. If he hadn’t started loosing his mind I’d take him in so he could speak to the manager… Ha! Wanting to know why they won’t honor my free ………… coupon from 44…. I really have some . A lot, back to 33. Man I got lost on this one. Blues, I know my local Big T store has piles of full hides in all kinds of blues in what looks pebble grain. Looks like your pic.
  6. Urine has used in the tanning of leather since the very very start. It was actually used for the heavy metals being pissed out in human urine. I still get sides that smell like piss, although piss is not used anymore, supposedly. Use as usual. Carry on.

    Keep each bobbin with the correct machine. Other than that don’t put exacto knives in your back pocket. Hope for the best. Live on the edge. I have no idea where anything is.
  8. Thanks fellas, and I totally agree with everything said. I’d love to spend a year or so playing with one, maybe someday, but not this day!
  9. I’ve been looking at the Durkopp Adler 969. From what I’ve found online it looks to be a very capable machine. I’m positive it’s built with the same quality that is Adler, my question is, or my fear is, all the ‘Lectric functions that I’ve spent a lifetime doing manually. Push button tension? Push button everything. Is it worth almost 10 grand in the long run? Anybody had one since they came around in 2013? Opinions? Thanks.

    There is a method to this madness. I don’t know what it is, but I know where it’s at. Maybe. Thanks man!

    Used up some scraps for a sheath. I like it. Kinda wanna keep it.
  12. I picked up this 145w204 at a once in a lifetime deal. Supposed to be a great rig for upholstery. 7/8 lift compound walker. Sparkly clean inside and out. It had never been cleaned. I might sell, prefer trade
  13. That’s pretty slick Man. I dig it.
  14. Man. Thanks a lot. You laid that out perfectly. I see exactly what your saying. I appreciate it. Now if I could find parts.
