  1. Looking for some help please. I have bought an old Singer 29K171 and is busy taking it apart and cleaning it. Replacing parts and bringing it back to life. But I have hit a snag. How do I remove the pin which holds the shuttle driving cam gear. All parts of the machine is badly funked up. Wd40 has helped and all other pins slipped out. But this one is stuck and I am not sure if it is meant to release to one side only.
  2. I find it amazing how things come in waves. I am still getting my 45k in order when an opportunity to buy a 29K58 showed up at what I thought was an irresistible price. So here it is. It runs very smoothly and came with a stack of leather point needles.
  3. Hello I'm looking for a Supplier of needles for use in a Claes 30 Long Arm Patcher. Needle system: 88DU x 1 need them in just about all sizes but the smaller sizes are the ones I use the most of. Silverd
  4. For various complicated reasons we are ceasing to do boot work and so we will be selling our Singer 29K60 machine. This is a long arm treadle model with the "splittable" arm ( there are similar machine out there with a one-piece arm which are virtually impossible to service). It has been drilled to accept a motor at some stage but we have used it as a treadle machine for the last 12 years or so. We are open to reasonable offers or would swap for a Singer 46K49 / Allbrook & Hashfield / Techsew 402 or similar. Posting here before posting anywhere else. This is a very nice, working machine. The table hardware is included but will need a new top making as it is for a short arm machine. By all means contact us for further information.
  5. I noticed that the patcher sewing machines got a special movement of the needle bar compared to most other sewing machines. This is a video of the Chinese patcher sewing in some transparent fabric. Make note of the screw that fasten the needle in top of the picture: https://youtu.be/LOliY3NHg_A The needle height is controlled by a cam in the flywheel of the machine, and the hook position is controlled by another cam in the flywheel. The needle penetrates the fabric and goes to minimum height and a bit up again to form the loop of the upper thread for the hook to catch. Then the needle is hold down at same position a long time, while the hook moves forward and pulls down the thread. Then after this hook movement have finished the needle is lifted up. For normal sewing machines, the needle position is controlled by an eccentric on the main shaft and a connecting rod to the needle bar. Then the needle eye is lifted through the fabric and further up, while the hook pulls down the upper thread. This way causes a peak in thread tension near the hook, because the friction on the needle thread is high when the needle eye passes the fabric. This video explains this problem from 0:50 to 2:20 in the video: https://youtu.be/80WASgbKIX4 It is not only the Chinese Patcher, that moves the needle this way. The Singer 29, Adler 30-1 and some older sewing machines like the Singer 28 got a similar movement of the needle. I am sure, that in this way it is easier for the hook to pull down the thread, because the friction to the thread in the grove of the needle is limited. And therefore I guess that it may be possible to sew with smaller needles than normal with these patchers. Goto 10:50 in this video to see a similar movement for a Singer 29-4: https://youtu.be/aQLre-l5RkU Perhaps more leather sewing machines are made with this special needle bar movement, but I have not noticed that. Have you? I guess that you got some other disadvantages with this kind of cam controlled needle movement, and therefore most other machines are not made this way. I think one problem can be vibration at higher sewing speeds.
  6. Listing for a 96 year old retired leatherworker and saddlemaker in Northern California. The ferdco has a ton of accessories I’ve included one page of the original invoice. The sewing machines are low hour and well maintained as for prices let me know about prices I don’t want my friend to get ripped off or taken advantage of, or maybe his prices are too high, any advice is appreciated. I'm sure any of these machines would come with any of their accessories like rivets, thread, needles, and anything else he has for them, He's been selling everything in his shop.

  7. Hi, I am new to the forum and have been reading around. Lots of great info here! I have recently inherited a Singer Patcher 29k71 that used to belong to my grand father who used to be a cobbler. He had lots of those, unfortunately, he ended up selling most of the old machines but fortunate for me, this one survived and was passed down to me. I was able to get it completely restored and repaired but i still cant get it to sew properly. I know the problem but i dont know how i can fix it. Problem is that it is timed properly but it constantly gets jammed because the thread ends up under the shuttle carrier. as such, i ordered a replacement shuttle carrier (not an original part) and installed it but i still have the same problem. I was able to get it to sew a few times but it ends up jamming in the end. What i noticed is that the bearing between the shuttle carrier and the driving pinion seems to stick up a little too much. As such the shuttle carrier is too high? Other thing i was thinking is that the hole on the shuttle carrier where you put the set screw is too low and when fastened on the driving pinion and there is too much play. Or the driving pinion is worn down and there is too much play. Either way, before i buy anything else, i could really use some help. Thanks! Andre
  8. I' considering the purchaseof a claes or singer 29k type Patcher to help me sew handbags. Have a singer 201k M2 and a techsew 5100 already. One place I read suggested that Patchers can't or don't sew straight very well and leave presser foot marks. Can anyone comment re this? Don
  9. Wanted to buy: Adler 30-5 or 30-7 long arm patching machine.....with or without treadle stand. Doesn't have to be pretty, but does need to function correctly. Thanks
  10. A well tuned and maintained inexpensive Chinese patcher is my best friend. I own and use an Adler 67gk373, a Tippmann Boss, the chinese patcher from Bantam Saddle and Tack, a Stewart awl, and Mckay jerk needles as well as two-needle saddle stitch stuff. I recently found that I can use universal home machine needles as well as 15x2s. You dont have to use hard to find needles. No experimenting required. Last job was done with 69 poly and schmetz 110/18 needles puchased at walmart. Also DP 5s and PFX134LR.

I feel the price is a great deal when I have checked others that are for sale. Just want to get out what I bought it for. My email is Mibracedude@gmail.com Price is $1,500.00
  12. Hi! Been lurking on this forum for a while and recently been looking into leather patchers for my amature shoemaking. I should start of with saying that I have no prior experience using sewing machines nor servicing them. I've been looking for something to sew shoe uppers with (usually about two layers of 1.5-2.5 oz calf leather leather), and if possible soles as well (8-10 oz leather, although I can keep doing these by hand if needed). Been looking into singer 29k models and it seems pretty good for what I want to do. It seems relatively easy to use as there seems to be alot of replacement parts available and alot of information to find online. The hand crank is a very good feature aswell, especially since I don't have alot of space in my apartement and don't need the threadle. One of the machines I found is this model recently, seems a bit more modern than most 29k's that I have found so far. Any idea which model and if its a good machine for a beginner? Its around 350 euros. I also found this other machine that seems to be from around the 1880's, might be called "Patent elastique" by Husqvarna or J. A. Nilson. Only 150 euros, but I can't really find alot of information about it. Thanks in advance, looking forward to be a part of this community. -Rainy
  13. I regrettably popped out the entire bobbin ensemble. I put it back in as best as I could remember it and was able to sew away for a while. Now, the upper thread keeps getting caught in and under the bobbin. I must have put the three bobbin parts back in incorrectly. Everything else is unchanged and looks okay. What is the name for the piece I am holding in the picture? The one I wish I never took out of the machine.. Can you tell me the correct orientation of this piece, and thus the bobbin basket, while the needle is at its highest position? The needle reaches its highest position on my machine when the handcrank is at exactly 12:00. Where should the crescent on the piece in the picture be at this point? If you could provide a photograph, that would be extremely helpful!

  15. I've acquired a 29K-30 Patcher. Works okay but I found a flat worn on the cam follower roller mounted at the end of the needle bar lever. Ordered and received a new roller and pivot assembly from Pilgrim (p/n 1801) but the drive shaft is so worbled up at the end I can't pull/hammer the cam/pulley off. I can pull it back enough to free the roller but don't see how to pull the pivot. The original roller appears to be peened or swedged onto the pivot shaft so I can't just replace the roller. Any advice? I'm taking a couple wheel pullers to the shop today to remove the pulley but there's no place I can see to clamp onto the worn part.
  16. Greetings all... I have a great condition singer 29k71 for sale. Everything other than the leather treadle belt is there --- bobbins, bobbin case, threading wire, manual etc... As you can see by the pictures it is in really lovely shape indeed. $675.00 or best offer. I am in Seattle area by the way:)
  17. Hey all! This is my first post here, after searching for similar threads and coming up relatively empty. I just started out as a hobbyist shoemaker/wanna-be cordwainer a few months ago, and as such I eventually had to get an appropriate leather sewing machine, after using a Singer 99K for my first pair of boots and finding it troublesome to not be able to sew three-dimensional shapes. I recently acquired a Singer 29K72 for a measly $200, and it is in remarkable condition. The previous owner seems to have taken good care of it and oiled/cleaned it regularly. Nevertheless I also did so as soon as I’d brought it home and it operates smoothly. It will gladly make stitches as long as 4 mm, although I operate with a much higher SPI for shoemaking. However, I have run into a couple of small issues and was wondering if any of you have any suggestions as to how to rectify them. 1) The leading edge of the shuttle carrier is worn down a little bit. I have purchased a new shuttle carrier (and driving pinion) from College Sewing to replace it. The problem is the tiny set screw that holds the driving pinion and shuttle carrier in place: it just will not come loose. I have tried a variety of different flathead drivers, but none of them give me enough momentum to get the screw lose without stripping the very fragile slot in the screw head; since it is so small. It is also already slightly stripped from the previous owner fidgeting with it. I have applied oil directly to the screw, but it will not budge. Suggestions? 2) The user manual says the leading edge of the shuttle carrier should travel 1/3 of the way across the slot where the needle reaches its deepest point at each oscillation of the carrier. I have made this adjustment to the eccentric stud, but it seems to not want to stay adjusted to that point. After sewing for a few minutes, the shuttle carrier starts coming short of the slot for about 5 mm. The machine will still stitch, but gets prone to skipping stitches. Then I’ll have to adjust the eccentric stud again, but it will soon revert back to an incorrect position. Does anyone know why this is and how I can remedy it? When I first adjusted the eccentric stud, it was stuck, but some oil to the adjustment screw loosened it up and made it possible to adjust. Is it possible I have damaged something when adjusting it the first time, perhaps? There is some very minor slack to the shuttle carrier, but not so much that it would move that far on its own without the eccentric stud being adjusted. 3) The needle clamp position adjustment is stuck also. Loosening the screw does nothing. I have oiled it, but it won’t budge. This is the smallest issue so far since the needle is still centered nicely above the needle plate hole, but I’m dreading the day I have to actually adjust it and won’t be able to. The two first issues combined leads to the machine skipping stitches every 10-15 stitches or so, which is very annoying. When it skips one stitch, it will also skip the next…and the next, so I have to stop what I am doing, lift the presser foot and move the material back to where it first skipped a stitch before I can continue sewing. Mind you, I am making shoes where a lot of the stitching is decorative and therefore needs to be impeccable, which is difficult when you have to remove the material and move it around a lot.
  18. For those who've seen the movie by Adam Sandler, in which he portrays a Jewish cobbler in modern day New York City, I'm wondering if anyone recognizes the old, old treadle used throughout the film?
