  3. Hi. This is my first post so let me start with a brief bio. I'm 64 and plunging into a long time interest in upholstery work as a hobby. I started by buying a machine before I had learned enough to know exactly what I wanted as perhaps many do. That has led me to more googling and landing here. :-) I bought a Singer 211A157AA Needle Feed machine thinking it would perfect for my intentions. I have used it successfully making a piped cushion for a window seat and replacing the fabric on two Sling type lounge chairs. But I found the needle feed to be less than satisfactory when it comes to holding the material when feeding. I stumbled onto a Consew 226 that needed some TLC but I was able to get it relatively cheap at $200. After some cleaning, adjusting, and oiling I put it my power stand and it sews just great. With the Consew was included a very old looking stand with a motor and separate clutch. It actually works but I haven't given any attention to it yet. I would like to ask you guys if it has any value and is it worth the elbow grease? I can't find a single reference to this type of clutch for sewing. Any info would be appreciated. Regards, TerryF
  4. I'm in need of a 'slow' sewingmachine for precision and control stitching and found a good deal now. The advertiser send me this photo of the motor; it's a clutch motor, he called it a 'leather motor' since it goes at about 1425 r.p.m. I have no experience with motors/electronics and could use some advice regarding this offer, or deciding to upgrade to a servo. I made the agreement that I can either buy the machine without the motor (and order a servo elsewhere) or buy it with, but it will have an impact on my budget. Will this motor be slow enough for my needs? I would like it to go stitch by stitch at times, I'm not at all interested in 'fast' options. Also I prefer the machine to be quiet, which I know a clutch is not. What is the aprox. value of this clutch motor (without machine)? Thanks !
  5. From the album: Dogwood Grove Goods

    Tolled leather ladies clutch
  6. My second iteration for this bag, this time bought by somebody on etsy, the first was a gift for a friend. 2mm italian veg tan for body, 4 mm for strap. Turquoise dye from Fiebings for bodyand Angelus paints for the wave.
  7. Made another variant for my cherry blossom wallet, this one is nicer I think. The stitching is at 3 mm spacing and the closure is a bit more delicate.
  8. Hi there I made a simple leather clutch. I used an Italian vegetable tanned leather and a small stud-closure for a metal part Thickness is 2.3t (6oz) Making film & pattern >>> https://youtu.be/UK2BXHcM5JM Many thanks!
  9. I scored an old walking foot Singer 16-188 for next to nothing and it works fine, but I believe clutch needs some correcting. At first it would shake whole table every time you engaged and would not grab at first and then at full speed. It improved a LOT after I cleaned the clutch plate and pad and made sure they were actually parallel. I still think the pad may need to be replaced, though. But can't find the right size and thinking of just making one. So I have several questions: 1) The current pad is leather, but I see all the replacement ones are cork. Do I have to stick with leather? Is one better then the other? 2) The current pad is leather and is soaked with oil. Is that just accumulated over time from drips or is it actually supposed to be oiled? 3) To make my own is there any reason I can just use any think vegitan or oiled leather? (is one preferred to the other?) If I use cork, can I just use thin cork pad I buy at local hardware store? is it special?

    Juki LU 563

    Can you help with a problem I have with a Juki LU 563? The clutch does not re-engage the main shaft after resetting the clutch ( I cannot sew). I have tried pressing the right button while turning the belt drive wheel, in the opposite direction ( away from the sewer) according to the instruction manual. The wheel seems to be locked when pressing the button and does not correct the problem. In addition the the stitch length mechanism disengages the clutch each time I try to change the stitch length. Thank you in advance.
  11. Sneaking in another project for myself before honoring my promise to hubby to make him another watch band for his Apple Watch (I think he’s getting a little spoiled, but it’s how I justify the leather stash ). This one will be the same design as the last clutch prototype, done this time in a mink-colored Nile croc. From memory, the croc hide was about 32cms wide, grade I/II, in a Millenium (matte) finish. Will be lining with some incredible olive HAAS calf (thanks @nstarleather!), with hardware from Ohio Bag Supply. Stitched in Lin Cable 532, with KS 3.00mm irons. First step was that terrifying moment where you have to make the first cut . Luckily all went well, and I managed to get all the pieces out and still have nearly the full tail left.

    Slowing Down a clutch drive

    I did 3 things to slow ny old clutch motor 1. Installed a 1 1/2” pulley on motor 2. Lengthened the engagement bar by 12” 3. Made a New 6” Hand pulley for the machine from hard maple This increases the gear ratio and maximum speed is now 1/2 of what it was If you have a lathe this is very easy to do I’ve made several for friends and they all love em’
  13. New project in the works. Have a croc skin I want to make into a purse, but figured the smart thing to do is to make a prototype first out of some rather less expensive pebbled calf, lined with dark chocolate HAAS calf leather (thanks @nstarleather!). I’m heavily inspired by an, ahem, certain luxury goods brand, with hardware from Ohio Bag Supply (through hardware elf). Stitching irons are KS 3.0mm, thread is 532 light brown Lin Cable, and trying out the Renia Aquilim glue for the first time. Bag width is approx. 24cm. Will post more photos as I progress.

    Purse lining question

    So, staring a prototype for a small clutch (eventually going to do in croc). Pic below shows outer and lining. I’ve glued the lining completely to the two side gussets, but I’m curious if the lining gets fully glued to the main body, or just close to the edges where it’ll be stitched? Also, how do you account for the turn when the main body is folded; do you simply make the lining shorter than the outer, if you’re not completely gluing the two together? Thanks!
  17. I haven't made anything in a while and never real post much so here as a small leather clutch I made over the holidays. Still learning everyday and getting better at stitching going to be buying a industrial machine soon. I love the hand stitching for the strength and look but it's just so time consuming.
  18. Made a small bag for the weekend it was a nice little project
  19. Italian 2 mm and 1 mm leather used, Tan color and diluted chestnut higlighter (I think) for the lighter one. Cutest thing I've ever accomplished.

  21. My Consew 206RB-2 with clutch motor seems to have too much play in the clutch before engaging. I'd like to shorten the movement required to engage the clutch, and I'm pretty sure that is something that is possible. I'm just not sure how to do it. I seem to remember reading something about just adjusting a bolt on the motor, and I even see a bolt below & to the left of the pulley that seems like a likely candidate. I'm just not sure though, and I don't want to mess something up if I'm wrong. Hopefully someone here could give me some help with this?

  23. So I have a friend visiting and I need to figure out something I can make quickly that is still nice that she'll like. I come up with the idea of a small clutch or coin purse in the shape of a cat's face. I look around on the internet a bit for ideas and am not really seeing anything, so I do a few sketches and land on this one. Actually the sketch wound up being a frankenstein-like cat purse, but it seemed that everything was fighting me so I went simpler. For one thing, I couldn't find any rivets that were short enough for only one layer of leather. I'm not thrilled about the giant snap in the middle of the forehead, especially without the small rivets along the top to distract from it, but at least it's dark so it's not too noticeable from a distance. The lacing was another thing that gave me fits. I had gotten some of it completed when the lacing snapped, it was simply too old and had become brittle. I had already poked slits all around the edge though, so what can I do but lace? So I grab one of my longer pieces of Horween, a straight edge ruler, and a rotary cutter and try to make a consistent piece of lace and am moderately successful. It's much too thick to pull through the lacing slots though, and I'm not confident of my ability to skive the entire thing down. So I punch holes where the slits are and get lacing. You know something about thicker lace? It takes up more material. I was THREE HOLES SHORT. In retrospect, I probably could have pounded the lace to flatten it out more and add length before I started lacing, but hindsight and all that. So I cut a little more lace and splice it in. I think it turned out alright despite myself. Oh, and I probably should have used contrasting thread for the mouth, but I was really crunched for time at that point so shallow taps with the lacing nail and I called it acceptable.
  24. Here are a few things I have created recently. There is a Hair on Laptop/messengers bag, with zippered front panel that allows access to internal pockets mounted to the front inner wall, and storage for briefs and papers built into the zippered front panel, the lid also has a hidden panel with glove snaps for additional storage of briefs and papers, there is an internal pocket for a laptop (17" laptops fit awesome in this) and a rear storage pocket for books, or notebooks, with a final pocket on the rear wall to allow additional papers or briefs to be stored. LOTS AND LOTS of room in this bag. The hair on cow hide is in purple and black, and the sides are made of laminated pieces of veg tanned that have been dyed to match the colors of the hair on hide. I laced the sides with premium calfskin lace and did it in an Australian double loop stitch. The pencil bag is made out of the selvage of the hair on hide, and is a wide mouth design. The clutch is likewise made out of the selvage from the same hide and pairs very nicely.
