  1. I'm looking for a Tippman Boss or Cowboy Outlaw in the West Texas area near Midland/Odessa. Willing to drive a couple hours aswell. Please let me know if anyone has one they are looking to get rid of.
  2. Hello all, I bought a singer 119-2 cylinder bed sewing machine and it is working fine after some tlc and a new servo motor. I would like to replace the walking feet with ones that would allow me to see the needle. The one i have now the needle goes through the front foot and makes it hard to see where im sewing especially around corners. Is there a replacement foot that will fit this machine? Having a hard time finding info on this. So far all i have seen is a foot that comes on the 78-3 but it has some teeth on the bottom and i was trying to stay away from that if i can since im sewing leather. Also i have my tension really high. I works fine but just seems really tight. I had to tighten it that much to get the seam right just doesn't seem right. Im using 138 size thread. Should i replace the tension assembly? Any info would help thank you.
  3. "Cobra 4" package, some use but "like new". Includes all feet, roller edge guide installed, and flatbed "work platform" has never been out of original packaging. Have original box/formed packaging for this machine. To see list of "add ons", it's this one -- https://leathermachineco.com/product/cobra-class-4-p-premium-package/ Machine in eastern Iowa for pick up. First $2500. I don't hang out here - contact Jeff for questions, more pics, or videos of this machine running. Note if you're a belt and/or holster maker, I probably have some other items of interest to you (not included with this package).
  4. So I have a chance to buy a Toyota J34 demin sewing machine. It shows that it is capable of sewing through several layers of what looks like upholstery leather.I make holsters, sheathes, and heavy duty dog collars. I typically use 4-8 oz leather for my projects. Would this machine be up to the task? I came to you guys first, since you all are a plethora of knowledge. Thanks in advance!
  5. I am looking at buying myself an industrial cylinder bed sewing machine. I mainly do small to mid sized projects like belts, wallets, bags, etc. I have been looking into buying a Cobra class 26 until recently I found a 10 year old Adler K269 single needle walking foot for sale for around $1700 for stand and everything. I am wondering if this is a good deal, and if it a high quality machine with similar capabilities as the Cobra class 26. Any information on this would be a huge help.
  6. Hi, I found this Durkop-Adler 367 sewing machine available for pick up locally, but I don’t know anything about it. I need a sewing machine that can sew multiple layers of 4-5 oz leather. I currently use various models of Consew RB-1 to RB-5, would this model work on that? Also the asking price is $1500, is that a reasonable price for it? I can’t seem to find a lot of information online. Thank you in advance!
  7. I have a Consew 225 I’m willing to trade/part trade for the right deal. It comes with a servo motor, larger head unit pulley/smaller servo pulley for ultra slow speed. I just want something newer. I’m located in SW Washington.
  8. Just got this ferdinand machine. I've been using a Juke for the last 5 years. Got some questions. First, are these things always so loud. Sounds like a jack hammer when out gets going. Second, when I switch tho reverse it just stands still. The needle goes up and down and the foot lifts slightly but it doesn't pull backwards. Where can I get another foot Are there any accessories I should consider getting? How available are parts?
  9. Ran across a Brother LS3 C51-050B used around a $1000 bucks. I am looking for something to sew through 2-3 layers of 6/7 or 7/8 ounce vegtan - heavy duty guitar straps. As well as lighter leather weight projects such as leather totes, purses, wallets etc. Would also use for stitching around belt slots in belt slide knife sheaths, clip holders, belt slot on my slide holsters. I hand stitch my western style holsters. But I really need to add a cylinder arm to my shop in addition to my flatbeds. No budget for a Cobra. Thanks - Kent
  10. make / manufacturer: Pfaff model name / number: 545 Industrial sewing machine for sale PFAFF 545 with new servo motor for SALE Craigslist add has pics and details. https://redding.craigslist.org/for/d/igo-pfaff-545-walking-foot-industrial/7216319921.html I bought this in the hopes of taking my leather working game up another notch, but I just got into nursing school and won’t have the time for it. Plus I need the money for school. I researched this a ton before purchasing it. It’s a beautiful sturdy old machine made in Germany and very well built. I updated it with a servo motor by Reliable, the Sewquiet 6000sm, which costs about 190$. 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.
  11. I've been using my Juki 1541 W for gusset sewing, and though I've muscled through, I'd love to start working on a cylinder arm to make corners easier. What are people's favorite machines to look out for? I've been combing through facebook and other formums to find something used. It'll be my first one so I'd rather not pay for something brand new while I get adjusted. I generally use 3-4oz leather and mostly for bags, always veg tanned. Thanks! (or if anyone has tips on making gusset sewing easier on a juki, I'm all ears!)
  12. Hey, Check out the Weaver leather rotary sewing machine I saw a video on today. I wished I'd had this option when I bought my Tipman Boss. https://www.weaverleathersupply.com/catalog/item-detail/63500-01/master-tools-cub-manual/pr_59274/cp_/shop-now/machinery/sewing/machines Vikefan
  13. Like NEW less than 2 hours of use, REALLY! (this is why my wife hates it when I get bonus checks, I make spur of the moment purchases)! $1950.00 (COVID FREE!!) I will deliver within 50 miles of 92691 Zip Code, otherwise, we can negotiate it! I bought this when we were planning on moving, as the first piece of my new workshop, but our situation has changed and we are not moving, I can only use this when I clear room out of our den to make space for it, then need to pack it back away! It's a shame because it is awesome and works perfectly, can sew anything I can run through it, and more! For the time being, I will just hand stitch my small sites, and leave the large items to others. Cowboy industrial sewing machines (by Toledo Industrial) are built as tough as tanks and are capable of sewing thick leather, cloth, webbing, bioplastic, and other materials, with heavy thread. Capacity: The Cowboy CB3200 Leather Stitcher or Leather Sewing Machine, pictured here, is capable of sewing up to 1/2" of saddle leather, with up to #346 bonded nylon or polyester thread. Mechanism: It has a cylinder arm of 10.5 inches in length; ideal for sewing belts, collars, tack, holsters, book covers, all sorts of cases, chaps, chinks, guitar straps, and saddlebags. The feed is performed by a compound, triple feed walking foot, which ensures that all layers will move together. The presser feet, known as Harness Feet, are made of stainless steel. My unit also has the optional flat table to give the cylinder arm a flatbed application for sewing of larger or longer items. The CB3200 uses the same bobbins, feet, and needles as other Cowboy machines. The primary difference from those models is the removable U shaped table to convert the Cylinder Arm to a Flat Table Machine. The sewing stand/table size is 22" wide x 48" long and the top is 33" off floor. The sewing surface height is 37" from the floor. Included: My CB3200 purchase comes complete with a motor and table and narrow double toe harness presser feet. Also included are four bobbins and one pack of needles. Model: CB3200 Arm Length: 10.5" Arm Diameter: 3 9/16" Maximum Foot Lift: 5/8"" Max Sewn Thickness: 1/2" Thread Sizes: #69 - #346 Bobbins: 7/8" x 1" large capacity Max Speed: 800 rpm Max Stitch Length: 2 per inch Reverses into same holes High torque servo motor, with front panel speed control knob Ball bearing 3:1 speed reducer U shaped cut-out table, on casters Adjustable Pedestal stand upgrade $100.00 Removable flatbed conversion table attachment: $95 Magnetic mount, LED flex lamp My Actual Machine
  14. Please help ID this machine. Front flywheel like a Frobana ...but too much difference???? Swiss made. does anyone have a manual? The curved needle is really a hook to pull the bottom thread to the top where it engages the upper billhook and shuttle/bobbin holder. Bottom thread is held in 2 "fingers" which present the bottom thread to the needle/hook. how do I adjust the needle to catch the bottom thread ....now it just misses.

    Tippmann Boss

    Everybody knows what this is, so I'll just give you what you don't know. Bought March 2019,. Well cared for and used then til now. Comes with 10 needles, 6 bobbins, double toe and 2 centre foot presser feet and 1/4 lb of 277 thread. It's like new and works well. Reason for selling is because I've upgraded. 1400CAD which is about 1050USD. I'm in Nova Scotia, but I'll ship for free within Canada or the US.
  16. I came across this today on YouTube, and thought some might enjoy it.
  17. Good day. I need your help and advice on choosing a sewing machine for sewing leather. I have experience with sewing textiles, but as far as working with leather is concerned, I'm just a rookie. I want to start sewing car seats and upholstery. Unfortunately, I have no familiars, who would be engaged in sewing such products. I'm sure it should be a flatbed machine. But I have doubts about what kind of the feed mechanism to choose - top & bottom or compound feed. I have heard and read different opinions on this matter. What are the features of the choice? My purchase budget - around $ 1200. Brands represented in my country - Juki, Typical, Durkopp-Adler, Golden Wheel, Hightex, Zoje. One seller also advised me model Typical GC 20606-1. Do you think this will be a good choice? I don't want to be wrong, because I won't have another try. Thank you in advance.
  18. Well its time to expand into new disciplines. I have restored and rebuilt a 100+ year old one horse carriage except for the upholstery, dashboard and trunk. Just ordered a couple of 3 oz hides and now need a machine to sew with. As far as I know there are no industrial machine dealers around here in Idaho so I need a machine that would easily serviced if needed possibly by a residential machine technician (if that is even an issue). Anyway I have pretty much decided to buy new unless something pops up regionally. As to what else I plan to do with it, I never know. But I do have lots of ideas. Belts, sheaths, boat cover repairs, furniture cushions, wallets, ect. I would hold the line at holsters and heavy leather as initially the type of machine necessary would not be ideal for my current project based on discussions in this forum. From reading forums I would probably like an 18" arm Servo Motor Gear reduction Looking for brand and model recommendations. In addition what additional supplies and attachments should I be purchase for/with the machine (feet, needles, thread size)? No specific budget but I guess I will be spending 1 - 2 k.
  19. Hi guys, Ill keep this short. Does anyone know how to remove this belt shroud on this machine.? I need to change the belt but cant figure out how the shroud/guard comes off. Im referring to the top guard directly around the wheel. Thnx Does the wheel have to be removed.?
  20. Hello Everyone, First time posting here so please be understanding with terminology and what not - any help/suggestions is appreciated. I have what I believe is an early singer 16k SV - only issue is there is not a model number tag on it like most (aside from the serial number - 5603810 - 1883) - Do you agree with this or have any reason for why it could be a different model? Hopefully once this is confirmed I will be able to track down and eliminated a few of these issues: 1- When taking off the tension part from where the handwheel attached my brother broke it. I have no idea what this piece is called and have been searching high and low. It seems to have been connect by a pin to an internal spring maybe? We have not tried to remove the part stuck in the rod yet as I do not want to make a bad situation worse. I really feel even knowing the name or part number would really help. 3- I also believe that I have a jump foot and long beak shuttle - my brother and I broke the top foot and I am looking to replace this as well - any suggestions? 4- Needles, needles, needles....can anyone tell me what you would try first/what to look for? 5- Does anyone know what this little clip would be called on the slide plate? It still stays on but I would like to complete as much as possible. Again, thanks in advance and any iformation and or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
  21. I'm a hobbyist who makes reproductions of film, game, and television costumes for attending conventions and entering competitions. I have been sewing for 6 years now and have had a pretty good success rate and am comfortable sewing fabric but want to expand the range of skills I have. The next costume I have my eye on making contains a lot of leather and I know I will need the appropriate sewing machine to get it done properly and work with more leather in the future. I do have machines some sites advertise as being 'appropriate' for leather such as my singer 4423 and my all-metal Bernina 1008S but | really doubt their capabilities on thicker fabric and the number of broken needles that would involve. From what I have read I know I need to be looking at a walking foot machine with a compound feed and a servo motor, for garment sewing I want a flatbed, my issue comes from my student's budget of around £600 (I am from the UK) which I know is not a lot and I am looking at 2nd hand machines. As I am making garments my leather shouldn't be too thick, I have attached an image of the first project I wish to embark on as an example, however, I do need to occasionally work on things such as holsters and belts so I guess a machine with an ability to sew a wider range of fabric would be better. Although I know each machine has a range that it is suitable for so may not be able to do everything I want, I am fine hand-stitching small pieces like bags, belts and holsters if the machine I got couldn't handle it (as I am on my current project: Dolores from Westworld). I have a friend who used to work at a leather store and now runs her own small leather goods business, and the grandmother of my boyfriend who worked making leather goods all her life as people to turn to for advice on choosing leather for my projects as I don't have much insight myself as I'm still learning, I'm sorry I can't offer more information. These are some machines I have spotted on a quick ebay search that I may be able to afford, but I can't really risk buying something that I won't be able to use as I am a student and I'm not going to be able to get more money any time soon, especially with no competitions running currently with the pandemic as I use my prize money to finance my hobby.
