so first the funny part: on friday was a day to tell the grand children about .. i was at the printers for a magazine we print - and on the way was an old shoemaker who sold some tools and leather — well .... nothing nice there, but in the corner i saw this beautiful pfaff 345 with walking feet and synchronised (!) binder ... „could you use that?“ he asked .... what a question .. after my remark that a tension spring is missing, he came up with even more binding stuff and led me into the backoffice ... „here... do you need that one also?“ — a twin !!! a second pfaff 345 h2 or h3 —/ some thread and a 2 h talk followed ... what a beautiful day!! incredible happy bodo here the sad part; on one machine the hook is broken ... is there any place where i can buy one other than for 200 euros?? and — how to ger that part of of the machine? thx in advance ... cheers bodo
Hi, I have had several requests for service manuals for old Pfaff 345 and 335 machines. So here is what I have avaiable for these machines. For the Pfaff 345 here is a download link to the partlist, subclass list and service manual, link is valid for 30 days. https://rushfiles.one/client/publiclink.aspx?id=n5JAdmYzGl For the new 335 casting machine you are supported by Pfaff industrial https://www.pfaff-industrial.com/en/support/downloads/technical/documentsearch For the old 335 you can use this general service manual for several similar contruction Pfaff classes. https://rushfiles.one/client/publiclink.aspx?id=VSZEdZXfUv The old service manuals are without pictures and many terms can be difficult to understand. However, the new 335 service manual is good illustrated and can be used as a reference in addition to the old. Just change the parameters to the correct ones from the old manuals. I hope this will help. Thanks Tor
**I realize I posted this under machinery instead of sewing machines. Would a moderator be able to post this in the correct forum please** First off thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this thread. I am a novice when it comes to leatherworking and also a novice when it comes to machines. My use case: -I am looking to make bags, tactical backpacks, rucksacks, and handbags. Possibly the small wallet from time to time. -The materials I see myself using are Cordura, canvas, and leather. My Available machine options: I'm an expat living abroad and currently located in Singapore. I don't have access to a lot of machines and I'm hoping to avoid crazy shipping costs by purchasing a machine that's already in the country. My options for machines are below. I know people recommend different machines for different materials and jobs. I'm hoping to find one that will help get me started and allow me enough flexibility to make the above items. Once I progress from there I'd be willing to get a secondary machine. From what I've read throughout the forum it's quite difficult asking a single machine to be great at everything. I just need to find an acceptable balance to get started. Of course, if I can kill two birds with one stone I'll go for it. Options I have: 1. Pfaff 345 cylinder bed 345-H3 - This machine is used. There are cracks at the base, they almost look like stress fractures or as if it fell over and landed on the cylinder. It has the German markings on it. It's well used and has a new clutch motor. Overall, I'd say the condition is not bad, but it's definitely seen some repairs and quite a bit of use. I was uncomfortable with cracks. I'm worried that repairs and spare parts would cost a fortune. Not sure what year this machine is 2. Pfaff 335 cylinder bed. -This is a brand new set, but the price is really out of my budget at this point. The only reason I'm including this is if you feel that this it right machine and I should wait and save up for it. And by new, I mean it's an unused set and it looks to have quite a lot of electronics on it. Not sure what year. 3. Mauser Spezial 1245 - Machine is used, but in good condition and comes with servo motor and some spare parts. This is not a cylinder machine. Is this going to make creating bags impossible? 4. Sailright Fabricator - Servo motor - I know this is more of a sailing, canvas, type machine but I'm putting it down because it's available. Could I do a leather bag with this; would it even be smart? Is a cylinder bed machine an absolute must for creating backpacks and handbags? I currently design my patterns in 3D. If you have any input or recommendations which machine would be best, I would really value your replies. Once again, this is primarily for bag making, Cordura, leather, and canvas. I know there are reputable dealers at the top of the page, but I'm currently trying to avoid spending the +1k for overseas shipping. Unless you feel like the best machine for my use case needs to be shipped over and the options I've posted are an absolute waste of time and money. Thank you. -Justin. PS. I'll update my profile to state that I'm located overseas (Singapore) to help with peoples replies.
