  1. Hello All, I have my grandfathers Singer 7-11 sewing machine that he used for leather working. The machine is in excellent condition with no known issues. It was last used regularly around 8 years ago and been stored inside since then. Please let me know what questions you have and I'll do my best to answer them. $1200 USD - Cincinnati, Ohio Pictures below. Thanks, Chris.
  2. Looking for a complete tension assembly for a 145w205. New if possible, and in the U.S. thanks in advance.
  3. As mentioned in another section of the forum, I acquired this 45Ks.V83 last week from FB marketplace. Made in 1916 with three generations in one family, I was so damn excited to find a machine preserved in almost working order. Was also fascinated as the seller shared their family story. I had been looking for a cylinder arm to assist with my work for over eight months. Being an avid Singer fan for over 30 years had me scrambling to make to 1100km trip to pick up this beastie. The renovation went well. Before I had picked up the machine I had some vague dreams of mounting it back on a treadle stand. Two things brought this to an end. 1) the weighted flywheel on the original stands is very rare here in oz. Found some stands but alas not the 2 or 3-geared wheel. 2) when I got the machine the motor and gearing setup was endearing for its history and age. The cast iron stand was also an Australian-manufactured frame. Some questions I hope to share and explore with the talented brains trust here = 1) Can anyone shed light on this version?? 45Ks.V83? The 'V83' is not listed in any archive I can find from Singer at the time (serial no. lists it from the Clydebank Factory. 1916. One of 1500 45k. Quite a big batch. Gearing up for war manufacturing????) 2) Any light on the 's'. Had assumed it was 'Saddler' but only as I had seen it in the factory inventories occasionally. As Stewey mentioned this is unlikely as most of these would enter the saddlery trade regardless. Agree that it could mean 'special' but am wondering is others might have insight. 3) the rectangle work plate has also been hard to find in manuals and catalogues from the time. Stewey also mentioned he had these on his. Is it possible that these were for the Australian market or do others have these plates?? Oval is listed in special order lists from the period. Anyhoo... Adding images of the reno for those interested in the Singer 45K and the next person who might be looking for anything on these wonderful leather stitchers. . Big thanks for this site and the effort everyone has put in to support the community and subject. All the best. More progress pics And the last
  4. Hello all, I've been looking for an industrial zigzag passively for a while and came across a nice Singer 107W5 recently. This seems to be a less common variant of the 107 based on limited posts here and elsewhere. Canvas, straps, upholstery and marine are the majority of my fiddlings. In the manual I noted the following: "Drop feed; positive reciprocating feed slide under presser foot and above the work. Translation please? It seems to be a top side walking foot sort of thing that is sync'd with the feed dogs -- I'd guess. I'd assume better multi-layer feeding is the big advantage -- which sounds great - but are there downsides to this setup? does it help/hurt over lumpy bumpy thick seams, etc? How much clearance can I get under the foot? Is it a no brainer to setup/maintain? Parts issues or complexities? Does it restrict me in some way I'm not thinking about? Only other question might be if the stated 1/4" max zigzag width of the 107W5 is the "standard" amongst lower end industrial zigzag crowd and not worth looking for bigger? Often see 20U's out there as well. I'm not in a big rush and can keep looking but it's a good deal. Does anyone have perspective or experience with the 107W5 and its upper feed that you could share?
  5. Can anyone tell me which model Singer this is? What would be a fair as is price?
  6. Hey guys. I'm so excited that I finally have my Singer 211U567B in hand. I bought it off craigslist and had it shipped for $350. Came with what's in the picture below. I also purchased a new Singer Industrial Table off Ebay for $150. I'm lucky that here in Boise, we have a gentleman who is amazing at servicing these machines. Before he comes over to tune mine up, I need to get it all set up. I have a Reliable Sewquiet 5000 mounted to the table. I've ordered a thread stand, new needle plate and screws, new right slide plate, belt, oil, bobbins and rubber machine rests and hinges. The last piece I'm missing is the oil drip pan. I have found it impossible to find a reproduction or used one online. I am a metal fabricator by hobby and have the ability to bend and weld sheet metal. I was just hoping to get some thoughts on what you've done if you've made your own. would also love to see some pictures. will upload a pic of my complete setup once I get all the parts in. Thanks in advance for your advice!
  7. I have a Singer 66-18 with the Simanco BA motor. I know it is not a heavy leather machine but want to use it for lightweight garment leather. The motor runs at high speed BUT has no power. Without the belt, I can easily stop the motor with my fingers. On the machine, the motor can barely run, even without thread or material under the presser foot. I can hand turn the balance wheel easily and I have cleaned and oiled the machine. The motor works better when the belt is tensioned too loose. I have replaced the drive belt. I don’t feel like the problem is the machine but don’t know what to try next. Thanks in advance! Ken
  8. I bought a machine over here in Australia for my better half. I figured these machines are built well and parts are available, so just took the plunge. The timing belt had broken and the previous owners had sourced a new one they were supplying with the machine. The machine was looked over by a mechanic late last year so figured it was a safe buy. I removed the arm bushing (banged it up pretty bad removing it) and installed the new timing belt. I timed it with the take up lever and the arrows and then timed the hook, so she is capable of creating a stitch but there are a few things not right. The presser foot doesn't lift as part of the mechanism just sort of sits on the leather with constant pressure and the feed is out of time. I get the feeling a few things have been moved by the previous owner and trying to figure it all out leaves me feeling a few things are missing. From my studying, mostly from looking at the Consew 226 exploded parts list and the Singer 211 drawings and cross referencing with the 111G156 parts list, I think I am missing at least: 240500 - Tension release slide 240142 - Tension release slide spring 240185 - Vibrating presser bar extension 240188 - Vibrating presser bar spring 350299C - Vibrating presser bar thumb screw (pressure regulating) 200996C - Lifting bell crank cap screw Could the experts here and those with the same machine have a look over these photos and advise if these are required and any other missing parts I may not have picked up. Thanks Clive
  9. Hello, We just came across 2 Singer sewing machines in storage. One is a double stitch not sure about the model number. The only numbers i could find was W 704753. The other is model 29-4. They both have heavy duty motors. We got them up and running and would like to sell them but not sure on what the going price is. Can anyone help with how much they are worth.
  10. This machine just popped up near by. Can anyone help me identify the model?
  11. Picked this up for super cheap. It’s set up for double needle. I know you can convert a single needle to double, I’m assuming it can be reversed. Anyone ever done this? Thanks
  12. I have no idea where else to ask this, but I have found more information about the singer 42-5 here, than anywhere else. I am starting a saddle and blanket repair business, and have the opportunity to buy a singer 42-5. After reading other forums, I think i will do quite well for the blanket repair, but I have no idea what it is worth. All the parts are there, and it was in good working condition 1.5 years ago before it's owner passed away. The owner used it for blankets, saddle pads, and canvas work on a regular basis. It has been in storage since. I know that without actually looking at it, no one can give an exact value, but a ballpark range would be great. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer!
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. Hello We have the option to buy a Singer 91k5 glove machine, it seems all in good order but has anyone out there recently purchased one and could give us an idea of prices. Also, if there are specific things to look out for. We have a large collection of industrial machines and are familiar with buying and restoring other models but this is our first venture into a post-bed "type" machine. Thanks in advance for any info.
  16. I am looking at a Singer 807 straight stitch zig zag sewing machine, it seems to be a forerunner of the 20U, and its practically identical to the Bernina 217, I am wondering if anyone knows of this Singer machine and your opinion? I cant find anything about a Singer 807 on google apart from a few photos, more articles are more infromative about the Bernina 217, which seems to take a DPX1 needle, and has a backward facing roatary hook, and a stepped zigzag control on the front (there is not cam arrangement on the back of this machine) would just like your opinion of this machine, thanks amateursewing
  17. 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.
  18. Hi There, I'm new to the forum, although i'm a long time lurker as this seems to be the best place to get opinions on anything leather. I'm in the market for a walking foot or roller foot sewing machine and found a local kijiji listing for one of each. The first is a singer cylinder arm machine with what appears to be a landis badge (second picture), and the second is a post bed roller foot sewing machine with a supreme badge and a separate landis badge (i think) - this looks like a Landis TK51(third picture), but i'm really not that experienced with sewing machines and was wondering your opinion. Can anyone help identify these? Can you give me any info about quality? They are selling for $600 each and i really have no context about sewing machine pricing. Regis
  19. I'm pretty new to sewing. I have a consew 206RB in very good shape. The main purpose for me getting into the field is for shoe making. Before anybody goes there, I am aware that a post roller foot is the best machine for such work, but I didn't have post bed money. I bought a good machine that I could afford. I also plan to venture to other things which will require a flat bed. Anyways, the foot marks my leather. I have already read the manual and loosened the screw at the very top to relieve some pressure, which did help. But I was told that there is a screw to loosen for the outer foot and inner foot, and since I'm a rookie I really don't know which one I loosened. It's the inner or "walking foot" that leaves marks, they can easily be rubbed out of suede, but not leather. Anybody have some suggestions?? Even on tools that can rub marks out? Also, if you're interested in this machine shoot me a pm. If I can't figure out how to get this to stop marking my leather I MAY be looking to sell it to buy a machine that can. Located in Ohio. Thanks!!
  20. I can't get my pictures to load. I will gladly send pictures by phone. I have a Singer 17-23 with a servo motor and speed reduction pulley system ($400.00) and a Seiko STW-8 consew clone with a servo motor and an oversized drive pulley ($500). I would consider delivery to the right location. These machines are located in the Grand Rapids Michigan metro area. 616-204-3257
  21. I have a singer 99k sewing machine operated by hand. It is about 100 years old. It doesn't have the box but it is in good condition. So, I just want to know how much will it worth.
  22. Hello All, My name is Blu, Im just discovering this site, but Im already learning a lot from everything on here. I have my own sewing operation in San Francisco, focusing on Denim and Leather things, and I just have acquired an bunch of new machines, all Singers, and am needing help finding some of their user manuals. The main user manuals im after are for the Singer 133K18, and the Reece 101 Bulldog just got this beast into the shop and would really benefit from having a manual for this guy. Also any background history of its functions and uses would greatly be appreciated. Again, looking for the Manual for - Reece101Bulldog The rest of the machines are: Singer —111WSV14 - 111W100 - 246-5 -153W101 If anyone has the user manuals for any of these guys, thatd be very helpful. Also any history or knowledge you have of them as well. A few of them are still in prime condition, but a few have definitely seen better days. I want to bring them all into better condition then when I got them. What are the proper ways to clean these old cast iron singer machines? I plan on cleaning off the rust and everything properly, and adding new black paint to it as well. Any suggestions? Thanks, Blu
  23. I am looking for information on the Singer 46K38 from 1948. All I could find is the below link that states it is for "turned slipper work" up to 1000 stitches per minute, but the brochure looks to be from a 3rd party, not Singer. ISMAC does not even list the 46K38. I am looking to primarily use it for making light fur and leather gloves, but it would be a bonus if it could be used to make medium or heavy weight work gloves as well. Any input is welcome, as I am new to this type of work/hobby. The good news is that it works and is complete with a table, light, 400V motor (German 2 phase) and is only an hour drive from me. The bad news is I don't have 400V in my work area and will have to get a new motor if the current motor is not 230/400V compatible. Thanks in advance. http://www.industrialsewmachine.com/46k38.htm
  24. Hi there, First post so apologies if I do something wrong. I'll be brief to save an essay but I can provide more info if people need. MACHINE: 132k10 (Scottish made '42) NEEDLES: 23, 26 (and a smaller than 23, not sure off the top of my head) THREADS: 20s, 10s, 8s (138, 277, 346) ISSUE(S): 1. Hook is defecting needle in normal operation. Needle is installed correctly. 2. Thread catches between the bobbin case and retention arm/spring (name?). Less noticeable with thinner thread but is audible and noticeable with thicker stuff. Not sure if this is normal for tensioning but seems to create a fair bit. 3. Occasionally a large loop of top thread is created that actually loops over the outer hook body, I'm guessing this is where the big lock ups are occurring. I guess that sometimes it slips off and carries on sewing and others it's jams. The machine appears to be in time and tensioned correctly (minus some very fine tuning). It will sew, and sew a pretty stitch but then it goes wrong, randomly. It makes a hollow "clunk". Vaguely similar to noise if you rattled the bobbin case inside the hook. This happens on the upstroke at the same time the tension becomes almost solid from the upper thread. Resulting in a mess on the backside. Chop and reset, sews fine again until...repeat above. It seems to happen regardless but more frequently if I cross over stitching and/or raise the presser to foot to rotate the work (needle in the BDC position). Threading and tension is right to my knowledge but I'm open to scrutiny on that. I've tried with the single and double wrap on the main tension (as per a YouTube video). Runs better with the double. This was the short version, sorry.
