  1. Always reading people suggesting heavy duty feed dogs, I thought that applies to thin leathers. Now I that I think of it, it doesn’t make sense to use heavy / med on thin/light I guess
  2. Hi guys, Currently converting my industrial Singer 291U3 into a “light leatherwork machine” (yes, I know I need a walking foot or compound). I have it fitted with a Jack 513 servo. With a roller foot and Teflon. I just need opinions on which feed dog + plate to buy. I will be strictly sewing garment leather chrome tan.

  3. Fixed the bobbin case problem , I kept trying to pull it straight out but it just needed a bit of clockwise turning motion to free it up a bit. Fixed it right up. There was a bit of fluff and loose thread in there too. Bobbin case seems to be the most generic universal ones. I also read that I should adjust the bottom feed dog level for leatherwork ? I appreciate your help !
  4. Hi guys, Recently got gifted this machine, it’s a Singer 291U. It’s a normal flatbed with a standard presser foot with clutch motor, anybody have this machine and can vouch on its reliability? Unfortunately the bobbin case is stuck and I can’t take it out, so I’ll have to figure out that first. im interested in swapping out the clutch for a servo and having a roller foot to help it sew well with garment leather and to climb over seams. I understand that it’s not a walking foot or compound feed but regardless, I want to try make this work.. seeing as I did get it for free
  5. Thank you so much ! I appreciate your effort and knowledge! I very much rather pay the market price for a good condition one, seller is asking for 350$... he has a newer 29k58 he’s asking for 930$... I just want a machine to use immediately and not have to worry much as I’m a student with many deadlines Thank you for the guidance ! Yes I agree, the tape is a bit suspicious. And the seller wasn’t happy to disclose any real information on the condition of the machine, only that it needs some “TLC”
  6. Hi group! I am completely new to this website and leatherwork so thank you for having me! I want to purchase this 29k, however seller doesn’t have much info on it. it seems that the stitch length is rather long, bobbin winder has parts missing ... anything else that jumps out for you experienced people ? Many thanks ! IMG_5033.MP4
