  1. I pick up this old Pfaff and would really like to time it. I can’t access the front of the cylinder bed that covers the bobbin area. Any advice on how to access this part of the bed would be greatly appreciated, and how do you find the model of the machine? Looks like a 28, but badge says different… thanks in advance!!!
  2. Hello out there! I am new to this and trying to find equipment for my shop. Where in the world do you find this stuff?? At the top of my list: Tippmann Boss, Pfaff 3-5" post machine (single needle, compound feed, walking foot sewing machine, Landis Sole Stitcher, 5 in 1, and Boot Last. Anybody help???
  3. Pfaff 141 Roller Feed 1964 with original receipt Originally bought the machine for the table for my 145, but after cleaning it up and finding the original receipt I thought it must be worth something to someone! It appears all parts are original, including the box, pan and lifter, thread stand and mount, the rollers and gear puller. It even has Pfaff needles. It is in excellent condition with what appears is little to no wear. The person I purchased it from has had it for decades said it was used to se leather patches on custom suites. Been sitting in storage for many years. Works well, no problems at all. Original receipt detailing all the parts. I have another receipt with more parts. Also has the Pfaff lamp I'll take some more pictures of. Any questions, videos let me know! Not sure what its worth, I'd really just like it to go to someone who would really appreciate it for what it is. Price is nominally $600. Hi res pictures here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/hQLU1mr6devF8b9B8 Located in Sharon Springs NY. Frequently in Albany NY, as far up as Queensbury NY on a regular basis.
  4. 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...
  5. 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
  6. Im wondering if anyone is aware of what the minimum and maximum thread sizes are for the Pfaff 145 Model H3? I saw another post on here mentioning that #207 was the highest the top could take, and #138 was the highest the bobbin could take, though Im seeing needles available for the H3 (size 134-135) on threadexchange that go up 200/25, which I believe can handle #277 thread as well. I also see needles that go as low as 65/9, which would be relative to #15 thread? Any help is appreciated as the Pfaff manual is a bit difficult for me to understand.
  7. I just ordered a Pfaff 1295 post bed but can't find information on what the best weight of nylon bonded thread is to use on this machine. Any recommendations? Thanks guys!
  8. Hey there! I am looking into purchasing a Pfaff 145 H3 from a local seller and have ran into an issue with the machine. When manually turning the wheel in either direction, we hear a squeaking noise. The machine seems to work fine and produces beautiful stitches so it is very odd. A friend of the seller who is more knowledgable about machines believes it may be an issue with a bearing, as the noise is much less obvious when sewing, and also went away a little after oiling the areas near the handwwheel. Any ideas on resolving this issue?
  9. So I got 10 unused spools of PolyArt 20 thread with a machine I bought, perfect colors for what I do, but for some reason I just can't get it to work with my Pfaff 545 - I get these weird kinks... I've tested this thread with a Durkopp 239, A Juki 562 and a Singer 111G156, and it works without problems on all of them, no problem getting great stitches. And this Pfaff 545 works perfectly with all thread I tested accept this PolyArt thread. So I tested a bunch of needle sizes, I've gone through the whole range of bottom and top tension, I played with the hook timing, I played with the needle position, I played with the bobbin case opener timing, I deburred the slot in the needle plate, it feels like I tried everything, but I just can't get good stitches with the PolyArt thread on the 545... It's driving me nuts - I just can't understand why it works in the other triple feed machines with horizontal bobbin but not with my Pfaff... And yeah, the top tension is a bit to high in the picture, but even with balanced or too low top tension, overall too low or too high tension, I still get these kinks in the thread... span widgetspan widget
  10. Upholstery Pro who was my friend recently passed and left me his two workhorse sewing machines. They are located in Stockbridge, GA and I'm trying to find them a good home. Reasonable offers will be seriously considered as they are not my cup of tea. I'd rather be fishing. This web site just seems to be the natural place to be. PFAFF 145 H4 with table and motor and a Singer 111w155 by itself need to be put back to work. Email any questions you may have and I'll look for any replies posted here.
  11. 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?
  12. 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:)
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. 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
  20. 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

  22. Could anyone confirm that this is a pfaff 1243 with roller presser ? I suppose it could be a 1244 twin needle

  24. 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:
  25. 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...
