Looking at many industrial sewing parts I can see they are all made from the same casting with minor differences in machined surfaces. For example, feed dogs may have the holes drilled in a slightly different location or the feeding surfaces may be wider or shorter for different tasks/machines. I bought a Consew 146RB and there are some tasks it just doesn't handle well. Rather than machining complete parts for it out of billet, does anyone have a source for raw castings? I'd love to just machine a few feed dogs, feet and maybe laser cut some plates to match so I can just sew up 100 of the parts I need and then reconfigure the machine to do something different.

najram2007 posted a topic in Leather Sewing MachinesHi Guys Ive been looking at a few used machines lately and wondering if the needle plate, feed dog and cylinder cover plate for the pfaff 335, Seiko LSC and the consew 277 are interchangeable? Thanks. Marjan
Sometimes when I'm sewing through several layers of waxed canvas, a few stitches in from the starting edge, the trailing work edge will hang up at the rear of the needle plate's nfeed dog slot. All forward movement of the material stops and stitches pile up. If I can get the material to move just a little bit more, the trailing edge gets past the rear of the slot and doesn't catch there any more. Is this caused by too much presser foot pressure? Picture attached.
