  1. Thanks to this board and contributors. Long story, short version. I spent way too long trying to fix my machine thread jam. Spent quite a bit of time reading this forum today. Cant say which post or which person but they mentioned that "the little screw on the shuttle hook assembly can come loose over time". Well, TA DA! That was it...the screw had loosened just enough to be just a hair above the surface. Which in turn snagged the thread and jammed the machine. I won't admit publicly how much time I spent trying to figure this out... Thanks to this forum and contributors! David (Pic taken after the screw was tightened back down)

  3. Was having a bit of trouble sewing wallets on my 3200 so I made a quick table to aid in keeping items level while I stitch. Need to make the throat a bit deeper on the table but it works as is quite well.
  4. I posted these pics on a different thread but thought I'd post this here to help anyone else trying to figure out how to attach a binder attachment to these machines. I first started with a 1/4" thick plate then really proceeded to mark where the holes need to be drilled. The plus side to this machine on the cylinder arm is that it has those two holes where the guide roller goes. The most difficult part was probably just tapping the holes with the proper sized threads and not breaking the tool off in the hole. This is a 1" binder attachment from Sailrite.
  5. The time is coming soon that I am either adding an electric machine to use in addition to my Tippmann Boss, or getting a larger machine to replace it. What I'm looking at is the CB3200 and using that for belts, knife sheaths, some of my holsters and using the Boss for my thicker holsters. Or possibly getting the CB4500 and selling the Boss. I have sewn 5 layers of 9/10oz with my Boss in the past. The only downside was I had to mark my stitch locations and lift the presser foot and move my work to get the stitch length I wanted. Will the 4500 handle that thickness without manually moving the work for 5 to 6 stitches per inch? Will the CB4500 sew thinner material like the 3200? I have used my boss to sew a few lead shot filled suede pouches to use for weights and it did just fine after I adjusted the tension lower. The 4500 package is $1000 more than the 3200 without any extras. I'm guessing I could figure another $300 to $400 for presser feet and edge guide if I choose the 3200? What would the Boss be worth being just over a year old if I decide to sell it? If I go with the 4500, I see no need to keep it, and I am pretty certain whatever I could get out of it would offset the price difference between the two machines I am interested in. Thank in advance.
  6. All, I'd really appreciate some quick, constructive feedback on normal operation of the Cowboy 3200 (and other Cowboy machines I'd imagine would be applicable) It's a long story, but suffice to say I just received my machine, and instantly had issues with it which required repair. The vendor walked me through the repair and gave me the option to return the unit for a refund if I didn't feel comfortable doing it myself. I was able to complete the repairs, but having the machine partially apart, and knowing some strange ways I thought my machine was working gave me additional concerns. I raised these to the vendor and was told they didn't have time to reply to my 4 paragraph question and to just return whole unit for refund, no exchange offered. I think he was tired of the inquisition and wanted to be done with me I'm trying to determine if what I think are issues are completely normal, or if I purchased a dud and should get an exchange, or if I should expect issues and not expect customer support trying to retain its customers so should look for a different brand (which I doubt because I've read almost entirely positive reviews of the Cowboy system) 1) How difficult do you find it to rotate the drive wheel by hand? It's possible for me to drive mine by hand but it is difficult. I've seen videos online and it typically seems like people don't have much trouble with it. The repair that I had to do induced a side-load in the drive shaft which I'm wondering if it's normal or not. If it's not, this could cause excessive early wear on the internal components and I'd probably want to return it. I ran a small line of stitching on a 1/2" stack of leather and the machine seemed to have no issue with it, so I'm not sure if this is truly an problem or not 2) how difficult do you find it to engage or disengage the presser foot lever? Mine is quite difficult and sometimes even jams completely. I cycled about 100 times to try to wear-in the linkages and it helped a bit but still has some difficulties. Also I usually have to "slam down" the lever to get the foot to come down completely. If I gently release the lever, the foot will often hang up about half way through its stroke 3) is the right side foot pedal just to hold up the press foot, not completely lock it in its up position? Due to the difficulties mentioned in item #2, my pedal is almost useless. 4) I purchased the "beltmaker's" package and the guide used to gauge the stitch along an edge sits about 1/8"+ above the throat plate. This means that leather roughly 8oz or less would slip under the guide and make the accessory useless. I'm wondering if the design is bad, or if mine is bent, or if I'm missing something entirely Any feedback to help me decide whether to return the machine for a new one, buy a different brand, or be happy with what I have right now would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
  7. So, was going to practice with the 3200 and some scrap to try out a technique @JLSleather had mentioned keeping the walking foot impressions off your work... , i didn't even get a few practice runs in, started one and was really going slow and paying attention to where things were lining up and noticed my thread fraying after each stitch was made when the needle was pulling back up from the bottom .....just one little length a couple of inches on each stitch. So i changed the needle, didn't help, changed it again thinking maybe i got a bad one, still didn't help...double checked size #25 Organ needle 794 that came out of the pack that came with the machine. Changed thread, changed bobbins, no joy... So then I researched some, especially here via google, re-read the manual, went over the machine and checked for dust, dirt, burrs, and did a thorough cleaning and re-oiling by the manual. I couldn't find any thing that would cause this. I did find one little burr on the underside of the presser foot toe, right side middle of where the hole starts up the side on the outside. It was enough that if thread was pulled across it with light tension it would fray and break. I don't think this is in the thread path during stitching but smoothed it off jic and still same problem. I am thinking my next step should be to remove the shuttle race and bobbin case assembly to check for anything i couldn't see or reach with the small brush but not sure whether this will affect anything? The instructions in the manual make it sound easy, but this is under the "how to adjust feed dog height" part and that's not what i'm trying to do. I don't want to do anything that will cause @SolarLeatherMachines to say..."didn't i tell you not to do this"...lol. The last thing Alexander said to me was, it's all setup with #277 thread, #25 needle to sew belts, holsters, harnesses etc (as we discussed), just sew with it and don't dick with it...(not verbatim, but marines always have a way of saying things that make the bottom line stick in your brain...lol) I did a good spray of aerosol gun oil last night to let it sit and am going to wipe it down and see if anything comes of it, but wanted to post up here for advice/ideas if it doesn't. I'll get a couple pics and a video this morning of the affected area as well and post back. I mean, it's not enough fraying to break thread, and you can't see it when something is stitched. I hadn't noticed it before last night, but it is worse on the white thread than black, stitch length didn't seem to change it, forward or reverse didn't seem to matter either. Tension loose as a goose or tightened to where the know started getting close to the top didn't change it as well. First time i've tried stitching a line and cutting along the tops of the holes on the stitch line to see exactly where the knot lands so I have learned a couple things I'm tagging(not all inclusive, as a ton of folks have shared info here that has proven valuable) a few of y'all that have provided advice on others, and saved me a headache or helped me better understand how the machine makes the stitch as well, I feel like it's when the thread comes up the back side of the bobbin case and back up through the feed is where this is happening but i can't for the life of me "see" it when it's happening. If I can't figure it out today, i'll give solar-leather a call in the morning. @CowboyBob, @Uwe, @Wizcrafts
  8. So after much reading here and watching tons of videos I made a decision on buying the CB3200. I gave Bob at Toledo Industrial a call made a short 2.5 hr drive up to him. He walked me around the machine showing me the oil points how to thread the needle, wind the bobbins. I also got the left and right feet with roller guide and the inline feet and a couple bobbins of thread. Got it home and set up quickly. Now time to do some practice before I figure out what the first pice will be.
  9. I'm having trouble on some of my thicker pieces with the bottom stitches not pulling up through the material, leaving "loops" of thread on the bottom stitch. I'm sure it's a tension problem, but don't know where to make my adjustment. 99% of the time, everything looks great, until I get to the thickness limits of the machine or when I'm making a tight corner. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  10. Hi could anyone give me some tips on tidying up the bottom stitch. I can't seem to get the right tension. I have attached an image to point out my problem. Looking forward to a reply here is the image
  11. Still hammering away, trying to learn this stuff. A special thanks to Particle (Adams Leatherworks)...I encourage any one eager to learn to also go and subscribe to his premium videos...they've been a BIG help to me over the past few weeks! Anyway...here's a couple fresh ones off my bench for a few side arms I had lying around: First, an IWB in Dark Brown for a Makarov 380, with a little border stamping and a FOMI clip that has since been replaced with a 1/8" black Kydex of my own design...the doggone FOMI clip kept breaking...L&L, I guess. Then, there's an Avenger-style OWB in Saddle Tan with white thread and basket weave tooling for a classic S&W 645. Immediately obvious with this one is the fact that I've GOT to get a belt loop punch :-) All of these were sewn on my Cowboy CB3200...still learning it, obviously, but its an awesome machine at a terrific price. As always, Thanks in advance for the insight! Chris
