  1. Hello all, I am looking for some good videos on self servicing my Pfaff. I can’t get it to a service or repair shop and am having some issues especially with reverse. I am hoping for some videos like Uwe Grosse (hint hint, wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more) makes as his 563 videos are priceless to me! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated:)
  2. I have a Pfaff 335 G H3 for sale in the south of france. I love the machine but dont really use it a lot as I have a pfaff 138 and a 145 and thats enough really for what I sew. It has a 3.8kw motor with a Quick Rotan Digital which I dont get on with well. Its wired at the moment for 3 phase. Needs to go to someone that will appreciate it. Works perfect.1100€ Tel: +33607577832 or hayley.r@wanadoo.fr
  3. I have acquired one Pfaff 141 (from 1956) and one Pfaff 591 (from 1962) and both came without the needle bar thread guide. I have looked at som part diagrams/lists and according to the one for Pfaff 141/541 it seems as the part is 91-005 024-05 and the screw to use is 91-700 226-15. It seem to be the same in the spare parts list for the Pfaff 191/591. But when I google around I also ge suggestions on the part with number 91-005 024-05 which seem to be a wire type and screw 91-700 226-15. The needle bar seem to be 91-709 310-01 on both machines, but the 591 seem to have a a slightly thicker needle bar. Do both work needle bar thread guides work or should I go with the one in the parts list? I´ve attached a picture of the needle bar on the 591 if that might help. Any suggestions would be very helpful on which one to choose and what would work best.
  4. Anyone have any experience with a Pfaff 6?? Not a whole lot of info online about them, but they look like a solid little machine. Wondering if it'd be good for working with leather and canvas or if it's more a light machine? It looks pretty industrial from what I see but it's not a walking foot as far as I can tell. Curious if anyone has used one before?
  5. Great machine if you can’t afford to spend thousands on a leather sewing machine. I’m starting nursing school and won’t have the time for it and I need money. https://redding.craigslist.org/for/d/igo-pfaff-545-walking-foot-industrial/7216319921.html
  6. make / manufacturer: Pfaff model name / number: 545 Industrial sewing machine for sale PFAFF 545 with new servo motor for SALE Craigslist add has pics and details. https://redding.craigslist.org/for/d/igo-pfaff-545-walking-foot-industrial/7216319921.html I bought this in the hopes of taking my leather working game up another notch, but I just got into nursing school and won’t have the time for it. Plus I need the money for school. I researched this a ton before purchasing it. It’s a beautiful sturdy old machine made in Germany and very well built. I updated it with a servo motor by Reliable, the Sewquiet 6000sm, which costs about 190$. This motor is well reviewed and the company gets great reviews as well, if you ever have any difficulties with it. I still have the clutch motor available also, the installation is very simple. I bought the machine and table from a store in San Francisco that was going out of business. They were using it to make canvas and leather bags. 1,400$ and I’ll deliver it anywhere in southern Oregon to the Bay Area. If you want it delivered then there’s a 500$ deposit with the rest payable on delivery. Or 1,215$ and you’ve got to come pick it up yourself with someone to help move it. It’s pretty heavy. I live near Redding. You should have some familiarity with this machine, I won’t be able to show you much about it as I just got it and haven’t had time to get to know it well. Lots of YouTube videos available. I’m not trying to make money on it, I’m just trying to get back the money I’ve put into it. So no lowballing please.
  7. Hi everyone So I really hope someone can help me with info on a pfaff 335-9B H2L. I was able to purchase the machine from someone selling it on gumtree for $290 which I think is a bargain. I cleaned and oiled the machine, had to make some timing adjustments, now it's working great! I googled the model but was unable to find anything. So if anyone can provide me with some info I would greatly appreciate it!
  8. I have a chance to pickup one of these Pfaff 335 machines locally for $800 for one. Are these any good for leather/canvas work? I currently have a Juki DNU-241HS flatbed, and I am also in the market for a heavy duty 441 clone or similar. Will this machine be a good middle duty machine? I mainly do small wallet/accessories and will be expanding into bags/satchels more once i get a 441 type machine. Anyone have any experience with either of these, where they can recommend one or the other? PFAFF 335-901-1935-002/005 Pfaff 335-G-H3
  9. So I finally spent some time trying to understand industrial sewing machine needle sizes and systems. As a reference I’d spent some time going through the information shared on the needles and threads sticky post linked here from 2011: Here has been the main thread for this machine: I bought this machine used (obviously) but the few needles that came with it are nearly unmarked and are about 1.52” long. So I wanted to share with you what I’m doing to find out what size these last few existing needles are that I have that go in my Pfaff 335 clone (it’s a Necchi 840-100 rotating bindery cylinder arm machine). I’d actually purchased a full set of 135 x16 (common needles for walking foot machines for use on the leather, in place of the 135X 17 needles). These are about 1.7” long. These needles were too long. I actually had to adjust the Needle bar very high to allow these larger needles to work. As I adjusted this, the Needle bar eventually touched the top of the machine Case and I realized this wasn’t going to work. I couldn’t find needles that matched the 134 needle system that the Necchi manual described. Eventually I found some! Here are the next set of needles I’m trying: “10 Groz-Beckert Gebedur 134 135X5 DPX5 Titanium Sewing Needles SINGER PFAFF JUKI” https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0759VHZVP/ let me know what you’ve used on this machine or similar. BONUS: if you’ve read this far and you’d like an assortment of 50 various Organ needles for 135x16tri in sizes 16, 18, 20, 21, 23 (I’ve only used two or so) …you can have them! heres a pic of those: dm me your address and I’ll get them shipped! Best first offer or free! Luke
  10. So, after owning my '76 Pfaff 335 H3 for a couple of years (very light use) the former owners oiling job is finally starting to wear of and I might have to start oiling it again. The guy I bought it from was an 80-ish year old sewing machine repairman turned textile manufacturer that was closing up shop and getting rid of all his machines. He slathered the whole machine in this deep yellow sticky oil, that it to this day leaks of after standing a while (I have to keep a piece of cloth under the presser foot to soak up the oil in between uses). So, now I'm researching what oil I need, and this is turning into quite the rabbit hole This here thread seems to recommend a ISO VG 15 oil https://sewing.patternreview.com/SewingDiscussions/topic/103874 which to me seem a bit thin (I'm a mechanical engineer so ISO VG oils are quite familiar). In the same thread they link to this oil http://www.gulfstarlubricants.com/sewing-machine-oil/ which is even thinner (ISO VG 10). The consensus on here on the other hand seems to be for ISO VG 22, which Mobile also sells https://www.mobil.com/english-cn/industrial/pds/apxxmobil-velocite-sm-series Pfaff's manuals aren't that helpful, as they only recommend Pfaff sewing machine oil No. 280-1-120 122, which I've not managed to find out what it is. The newer manuals for the 335 spec "Only use oil with a viscosity of 22.0 mm^2/s at 40 C and a density of 0,865 g/cm^2. Pfaff recommends Pfaff sewing machine oil, part no. 280-1-120 144", which to me sounds like ISO VG 22 if I remember the specs for ISO VG oils correctly. Personally, I'd have use for a ISO VG 22 oil elsewhere in the shop, but I thought I'd get your guys opinion on the matter first. On a side note, my mother is threatening to outsource the oiling of her home Bernina machine and Bernina Serger machine to me, any recommendations of oil for those as well?
  11. HI. I am searching for a Needle bar frame Rocker for my Pfaff 335. I suppose that one from a pfaff 145 would fit also. It is an older Machine (grey Yellowisch) --- I Would be glad if someone has one lying around somewhere :-))) Thx for your helb
  12. Could anyone confirm that this is a pfaff 1243 with roller presser ? I suppose it could be a 1244 twin needle
  13. Hi All, I have a Pfaff 335-H3-6/10-BS cylinder arm walking foot big bobbin sewing machine. The machine is in perfect sewing condition. I can sell the machine complete with table, or as head-only, which I can ship anywhere domestically. Also includes a fold back roller edge guide. Available for pickup in NY/NJ area, or I can ship the head. Let me know if you have any questions of want to discuss! I also have: Pfaff 335 H2 Pfaff 345 Pfaff 438's Adler 69-373 Pfaff 1445 Juki 5550-6 (automatic) Juki 8700-7 (automatic) and a few others.
  14. Hi, recently i bought a Pfaff 345-3H (i’m not 100% sure but it looks like a double needle version of the Pfaff 335) and it worked fine. I’ve done a few projects with it and so far no problems. I did not do anything in particular for as far as i can remember but now both bobbins are rotating and skipping stitches(i guess there is not anything broken with one because both have the same issue). I’ll try to explain what is happening but please see video link below. The loop of thread around the bobbin gets stuck between the bobbin case and the thing that keeps the bobbin from rotating (i don’t know how this part is called). The thread loop stops and gets pulled trough with a click. It looks like that is causing the skipped stitches. Sometimes the whole bobbin case gets pulled with the threat and the case makes a full turn and gets tied up. According to the video in this thread i found https://leatherworker.net/forum/topic/85248-please-help-thread-is-too-tight-when-pass-bobbin/ the bobbin case should not be rotating and the stoppy thing opens and closes in the right time to let the thread pass. I’m not very experienced with leather sewing machines but i searched a lot and could not find a solution. At this point i’m not even sure if the bobbin is supposed to be moving or not... Any ideas on what causes this and how to fix this? Forward thanks! Video of the problem:
  15. 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
  16. Hi! I plan to perform a heart transplant! (had to say that, sounded too good ;-) Well, it's the large shuttle of a Pfaff 541 which I want to put into my Pfaff 145 - and vice versa to be able to use the large bobbin of the 5XX series in the 145. To make this possible I have to move (or replace) the lhs hook driving shaft bushing of both machines. On the 145, I have to move it approx. 5mm to the right (away from shuttle) to be able to mount the larger shuttle carrier of the 541. Now, I don't know how to do that "correctly". I have already loosened the set screw from below, but I don't seem to be able to move the bushing itself and I don't want to use excessive force on the bushing, which might be the wrong approach... Does anyone know how the bushing is secured in the bedplate or how it can be (re)moved? Thanx in advance, cheers, Pete...
  17. Pfaff 545-H4-6/01 in excellent condition. $900 This is a triple feed medium weight leather sewing machine. This machine was built in Western Germany. It's capable of sewing up to size 138 threads, and through 3/8" of leather. The machine has been cleaned, adjusted and serviced. It works perfectly. maximum stitch is approximately 8mm, minimum stitch is less than 1mm. Reverse stitch matches the forward stitch. Internals are clean and oiled. Shipping across the USA is available upon request. The machine can be inspected and tested at: Solar Leather Machines 2837 Galleria Drive Arlington Tx 76011 817-422-9151
  18. Just bought this machine. It has been fairly used but sews nicely, bit loose on bobbin thread. Definitely needs deep clean and oil. Hoping that all. But I do need to switch out pressure foot. The existing one doesn’t allow it to raise high enough for me. I ordered new one on eBay. Are there any any changes I will need to make to accommodate it other than change amount of pressure on the foot? Thank you
  19. Hi all, I need help with an identification of a Pfaff 1245/1246 please. I can't tell if it is 45 or a 46 to from what I can tell it looks to be a 46 happy to be proven wrong. But it looks to have twin needle support even though its only running one set of tensions. There are no tags on this machine and even the owner a nice older lady (than me) who seems to be a very nice seamstress but couldn't speak a word of English. Who just used it for make car covers and it was time for it to move on, doesn't do this type of work any more. Anyhow it doesn't have a walking foot in place, also as far as I can tell it is missing the presser foot bar. Given I am look at doing car seats and light medium leather work this machine looked ok to get started. Do all 1245/1246 models come with the ability to support a walking foot by default? Can any one confirm the machine from the pics please. The manual is available but the manual is about both machines so this doesn't help. The owner didn't have any extra's either to go with it so I figure a 1246 typical comes with a forward gatherer from what I have read. Regards Szkil. pfaff1245.webp
  20. Okay, I’ve been on the fence about a flatboed vs a cylinder arm with table adapter. But then I see this and I’ve made up my mind.
  21. I'm shopping for my first industrial machine and came across this Pfaff. Can anyone identify the model?
  22. Please email me if you are interested. I check that more than anything. info@Loyalstricklin.com photos Here’s a video with the pfaff sewing (sped up) https://instagram.com/p/Bkh8VzJgy4r/ Nashville, TN For sale: Pfaff 335. Comes with swing down binder (cost $60) and extra slim presser feet (cost $50) and some extra needles $1900 plus shipping ($300-$350 from east coast to Texas. 450 or so to out west) Purchased new 9 months ago. I just use it to close bags. Maybe 50 hrs on it total. Techsew 2800B binding set up machine. I use this to bind the seams of all of our canvas and leather bags. Functionally the same machine as the pfaff 335. 1” tape binder included. For about $100 in parts you can convert this to a regular sewing machine just like the 335 or vice versa. Shipping costs are the same Both have servo motors. The pfaff has a space saver table. A flag table top can be bought for both as well from Uwe Grosse, so they can be 2-3 machines in one if needed. I’m upgrading to a durkopp adler if similar style, so I don’t need these machines anymore once it arrives. They sew and work as new and look brand new as well. Please DM if you’re interested or if you have any other questions. There is one person I’m waiting to hear back from on the techsew, but the pfaff has no one in line currently. Local pickup is available in Nashville, TN as well.
  23. Still works. 1/2 leather no problem. Walking foot. Servo Motor. upgraded Singer Treadle. Cost - peanuts! (God forbid if it ever needs any parts!)
  24. I am going to be near this machine tomorrow, and for 20 Euro, it is cheap. If I had to guess it is for seams on light leather and fur items like gloves, but that is just my uneducated guess. If they listed the model I would look it up myself. https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/alte-pfaff-pelz-leder-naehmaschine-mit-unterschrank/934199453-240-405 The translation is: "Old Pfaff fur / leather sewing machine with base cabinet" "Sell here an old sewing machine from Pfaff with base cabinet. She runs on the pedal when kicking. Pick up in 66539 Neunkirchen / Saar"
  25. THIS is s stitching machine! This was used in production for the backseat on tall bootlegs of heavy military and riding boots. Pay attention on the direction of the rolling foot! Not sure if on this photo you can guess the actual size of this machine, but a normal patcher would look tiny next to it...
