    Cowboy 4500 / Cobra Class 4 Questions

    We don't use the post because it adds too much tension to the top thread. We haven't used it in 8 years. It works fine without it. We make sure that when we thread the machine, we go through the first thread guide then through the tension discs and back to the thread guide, this will insure that the thread will not jump out of the tension. This is how we do it but other methods would be fine also.

    Cobra Class 26 machine

    Hello everyone. After 9 surgeries in the last 16 months, I'm back. Sorry it took so long. The COBRA Class 26 is a very smooth and a user friendly machine. It is the most versatile machine in it's class. Wiz posted most of the specs. Call us for more info if you would like.

    Cobra Class 4 Skiver Help Needed

    Hello. Please call us, we can help you.
  6. Hello LTL. Keep the 111W155 for upholstery/leather and sell the 66 or the 500A since they are similar machines. They are both home machines.

    Are Cobra Sewing Machines Any Good

    Hello HBARK. Please go to our website. You will see all of our products.
  9. You can get all of the major parts for the Juki 563. The 145, 211, and the 67GK are great machines though.

    Another Speed Reducer Question

    We use a ball bearing driven speed reducer on all of our equipment along with a full brushless digital servo motor, meaning that there is NO mechanical brake that will wear out and need to replace. With our system, when you take your foot off of the pedal the current stops and so does the motor. I have never liked servo motors with the mechanical brake because it costs extra money to replace and repair. We try to keep it as simple as possible for the customer.

    So Many Choices For A Beginner

    I agree with Colt. Get the maximum from the start. Contact all of the advertisers on this site and gather up all of the info so you can make an educated decision.

    Something Wrong, What Do You Think?

    Alex, I agree with Glenn. It seems that the top tension is the problem. Try tightening the top tension a half turn at a time and test.

    Can You Identify This Singer?

    Gregg, but the 400W was one of the smoothest running machines around, at the time because of the rotary take up and the ball bearing hand wheel.
