    Speed reducer

    A barely used techsew speed reducer 3:1 in like new condition 50$ plus 15$ shipping..U.S.
  2. Hello all, I've been having this problem with my TechSew 2700 Sewing machine and i pretty much tried everything and maybe now i can get some input from the great leather people here. So, I've had this sewing machine for a while and it's always going out of whack and i'm constantly troubleshooting problems.This time once i start stitching everything will be going fine and when i'm about 10 stitches in the bobbin case starts to make this struggle noise and the tension on my stitches gets to tight, or to loose then it will go back to stitching fine again. I've tried changing the needle, tweaking the hook timing, adjusting the upper, lower and bobbin tension, threading the machine over, re-winding the bobbin and even reset the motor on the machine. Has anyone had this problem? Any suggestions? Thank Yall!
  3. 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.

  5. MAINTENANCE AND TIPS FOR THE COBRA CLASS 3, 4, & KING COBRA, PRO 2000, ARTISAN TORO 3000, 3200,4000, Cowboy 3500, 4500, TECHSEW 5100, SEW PRO 44L, KINGMAX, MASTER LOCK, JUKI 441. AND OTHER 441 STYLE MACHINES Thread 1) Make sure that the thread you are using is not dry, old, or damaged by the elements. Keep thread in a plastic bag to help protect it. Make sure that the thread does not untwist, if so, then the bonding agents have evaporated or weren't very good to begin with. Threading 2l Make sure that your machine is threaded correctly. Breaking thread, skipping, fraying the thread, and tension problems will occur if your machine is threaded incorrectly. Take up lever 3) The take up lever has 2 functions: to give the thread enough slack so the hook can carry the thread around the bobbin case, and, after the hook releases the thread, allows the thread to pull up into the leather. Check spring 4) The check spring maintains tension on the thread as the take up lever returns to the top position. Needles 5) The needle must be installed correctly. Make sure that the long groove is on the left, and the scarf is on the right. Needles are tempered, so after usage, they lose their temper and become weak. A weak needle will bend or break easier after losing its temper. When the needle breaks, it could cause damage to the presser foot, needle plate, feed dog, or shuttle hook, so make sure that you change your needle every 12 hours of actual sewing. Also, make sure that you use the correct size needle for the thread and thickness of leather that you are using. lf you are using too big of a needle, then at times, the thread will travel up and down inside the hole that the needle punched resembling a tension problem. lt is all relative. The heavier the leather, the heavier the needle and thread. The lighter the leather, the lighter the needle and thread. Tensions 6) The thickness of the leather that you are sewing will dictate the amount of tension that you will need. You should loosen the tensions for lighter leather. Your tensions work in conjunction with each other, so you should loosen or tighten both tensions when adjusting them. You should never loosen or tighten more than 1 full turn at a time. lf you run into a problem with your tension and you are not sure which way to turn or you just can't seem to get your tension back where they were, then it is time to recalibrate them. This is a simple task. To re-calibrate your tensions, remove both knurled tension nuts completely, then put them both back on the machine until they just come in contact with the tension spring and stop. Sew a test piece. You will probably find that the stitch is toose, but this is what we want. You are now able to adjust your tension by tightening them both 1 turn at a time untilthe stitch pulls up. You may also experience bobbin tension problems. lf you have tightened the bobbin tension as far as you can, and stillthere is not enough tension (the bobbin thread is visible on top of the leather), you may have to clean out under the bobbin case spring. After hundreds of yards of thread pass under the bobbin case spring, microscopic fibers of thread, along with leather dust and other debris, start to collect under the bobbin case spring causing the spring to spread and give false tension. lf this is the case, then you will have to remove the spring, clean out the debris, and may have to bend the spring to put more pressure on the thread which will give you more tension and allow you to be able to adjust your bobbin tension as well. You may have to purchase a new bobbin case spring if re-shaping your existing spring does not work. Shuttle Hook 7) lt is very important that your shuttle hook is in excellent condition. lf your hook has burrs, or scratches, then you must buffthem offto make your hook smooth again so the thread will pass over the hook with ease. lf your thread is fraying, then a burr is most likely the problem. The thread will pass over the burr and then get caught, causing a couple of the strands to break. You should run your finger nail over the top, sides, under, and at the point of the hook when feeling for burrs. The shuttle hook travels in the race assembly. You should clean out the race assembly frequently. The race assembly must be clean, smooth, and oiled to assure the best sewing results. Needle Deflector 8) The needle deflector is located in the shuttle hook area. lt actually deflects the needle to protect the point of the hook. The needle will brush against the deflector moving the needle slightly to the left of the point of the hook. lt also keeps the needle straight, assuring that the loop made by the thread is consistent. Presser Feet Timing 9) Both Presser Feet should rise to the same height as they alternate walking. The procedure to assure that your presser feet are walking correctly is to turn the hand wheel towards you until the point of the needle is even with the plate or feed dog. At this time both presser feet should be down. The needle, and both presser feet should meet at the plate or feed dog at the same time. lf this is not the case, then loosen the adjusting screw and make the adjustment. The adjusting screw is located on the far right side on the back of the machine. lt is an Allen Head screw. Presser Feet Height 10)The presser feet height is determined by what you are sewing. For the most part, the height is set at medium to high. This will allow most applications to feed (whether thick or thin) without getting caught on the feet and impeding the motion of the feed system. lf you are manufacturing one item, like belts, where the thickness is constant, then you would set the height to accommodate the belts thickness. This adjustment is in the back of the machine, and is sometimes referred to as the "banana slide" adjustment. Hook Timing 11)To set the timing for the hook, first remove the needle plate and in some cases, the feed dog. This will allow you maximum vision. Set the stitch length to zero. Put a new needle in the machine. Raise the presser feet to the up position. Turn the hand wheel towards you untilthe needle is in the lowest position. Continue to turn the hand wheel untilthe needle comes up 3/16" , this measurement is critical. At this time, the point of the hook should be even with the needle and approximately 1/8" above the eye of the needle, and in the scarf of the needle as well. To adjust the shuttle hook, remove the round cover plate on the front of the machine located in the lower right hand side. After removing the cover plate, look inside the machine and you will find the black Allen Head bolt that holds the hook driving shaft. You may have to turn the hand wheel to get a better view of this bolt. Loosen the bolt and you will be able to physically turn the shuttle hook while it is in the machine. Turn the shuttle hook to the correct setting, 1/8" above the eye and then tighten the bolt. This may take more than one try. Tip: A quick way to check if your machine is out of time is to lower the needle. Just above the screw that holds the needle in place, is a hole that you can look into and see the top of the needle. Loosen the screw, then drop the needle until it covers half of the hole and try sewing. lf the machine sews properly, then you will have to advance the shuttle hook about 1/32" .lf it still does not work, the lower the needle again, until the top of the needle is even with the bottom of the hole, and then try again. lf this corrects the problem then you will have to advance the shuttle hook about 1/16". lf your machine still does not sew properly, then retime your machine based on the instructions above. These adjustments may vary depending on the machine. These instructions offered in this tutorial may not be absolute, because there are other factors that could come into play, but are a good starting point.

  6. I have a Techsew 5100 se and I need to adjust the height of the presser foot but I have no clue on how to do this, watched the dvd read the manual and neither mention how this is done. Any help is appreciated. I'm trying to lower it all the way down.

    Sewing Machine Help!

    Hey There! I am needing a little bit of help on a few machines I am running in my shop. They are both brand new machines and I have not really gotten them to run properly since receiving them. We predominantly hand stitch but are using machines more and more. I purchased an Atlas AT-318 & a TechSew TS-3850. I am having generally the same issues with both machines. I'll start with the Atlas. I got the Atlas running great but the minute I switch from 2 layers of 2-3oz leather to 3 layers of 2-3oz leather we are finding that our thread frays, skipped stitches and a general low quality of seams. I have adjusted the tension, switched needles, adjusted thread thickness and it will still always fray. I have had issues with the timing on this machine and it seems like Atlas has fallen off the face of the earth when I have reached out to them. The TechSew has never run properly. When I received this machine it was running.... barely. I switched the thread to the same size and color of the sample thread that it came with. From there it went downhill. The machine keeps throwing it out of time. I was on the phone with their customer support for a few hours and the technician said it was super rare for these to come in the condition it was in when it was sent to me. Every single time I retime this machine and run a stitch it throws it back out of time. I have sent them videos of threading the machine as they suggested with no response at all. I really would like to get these up and running. Seems like a waste of money for them to be sitting in my shop collecting dust. I am turning to all of you guys since I can get the support needed from the manufacturer. Thanks so much!

  14. I am a new business, Hank & Henrietta that makes handbags. I am looking to add a quality leather sewing machine to help me grow my business. I have experience with a "regular" sewing machine, but have never used a leather or industrial machine. I saw a machine listed on craigslist as new/ unused, but I have never heard of the brand. It is a Zhejiang Sibyer Model SB-810. Here is the link: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/sby/bfs/6051990454.html I was wanting some advice as what is your opinion on this machine? I also would like recommendations on which machine to look for preferably under $2k. I have researched quite a bit and believe I am wanting a cylinder arm machine and have looked at the following, but am open to suggestions for others. - Tech Sew 2750 - Cowboy CB341 Juki 341 I currently sew hair on hide, cowhide and softer leathers, but would want to use the machine for 2 oz. to maybe 6 or 7 oz veg tan. I make handbags and looking to start making wallets and other accessories. When recommending a machine I am looking for one with a big learning curve that is some what easy to use. I truly appreciate your advice and help. Melissa

    Techsew 810 roller foot

    Looking for a small roller foot for techsew 810... I see the singer type roller feet all over the place. Is there a conversion or do I just need to look harder? Any help is appreciated.
  16. Hi all! Im looking for a cylinder bed sewing machine in good or new condition. Even better if it has a flat bed attachment. Need it for light to medium work so I was thinking Techsew 2700 or 2800 but I'm open to other models as well. I'll be working mostly with lambskin but also some light to medium veg cowhide as well. I live near Philadelphia Thanks in advance!!!
  17. I bout the machine "like new" last March, and it still is...I used it only twice to practice stitching a belt, but then life kinda got hectic and never got around to using it again. Then, from Texas, I moved to Alabama and the machine has been stored this whole time...and yes, It is fully assembled, you can see it run and test it out before purchase. Ok, as for price....I have 3 options for you to consider... 1. $2700, my price of the machine INCLUDING my whole investment of merchandise for my attempted leather business (lol), which values at approx. $3500-$4000 at least..ALL purchased from Tandy Leather......THIS consists of NEW HUGE spools of thread*, NEW dyes and some used bottles of different color dyes, conditioner/gloss, NEW tools (multiple size punches,riveting kits, jewel setters, marker, hand carver, etc) , NEW conchos, jewels, eyelets, NEW belt buckles, LOTS of NEW UNUSED RAW leather belts, NEW belt loops AND tips, NEW packages of daubbers, 3/4" ALPHABET LETTER Leather punch set, guides, and maybe something I'm missing but whatever it is, its included! lol 2. $2500, price of the machine, spools of thread, and I will allow you to pick a few other things you might immediately need...To be discussed 3. $2250 machine only, and yes, the thread...I wouldn't want to sell you a machine without AT LEAST having that to get started *If I cannot find the thread at that moment, I WILL send it to you...Off hand, at this very moment, I can't recall where it is stored but I do have them Please consider these options and let me know how you feel, I do want to let it go, for someone else to use and benefit from so once you contact me, we can talk and see what will better accommodate each other because I have other business venture plans as well love... thank you for your time! Hope to speak with you soon!!! #GodBless

    techsew 5100 timing issues

    I've got a techsew 5100 that is eating my lunch....I know the timing is off. I have gone through all the timing procedures. I have been dealing with machines for around 8 years now and so I've already gone through all the newbie mistakes. I get the shuttle lined up at zero stitch. The Allen screw is tight. Sewing thinner leather does ok but no matter what thickness, after a period of 15-30 stitches the top thread gets frayed, then it begins skipping stitches. I have changed needles, smoothed off burrs on shuttle hook, and done just about all I can think of....is there any issue that could be up inside the drive arm,etc? For whatever reason when it begins to have problems, the shuttle timing is off, but with everything I know of being tight, am I missing something? Any advice or criticism will be greatly appreciated. I also have a cobra class 4 and have been trying to see where the difference/problem can be and pfffft...Thanks in advance and hopefully somebody else has been down this road.
  21. Hi, I have a techsew 2750 and Im looking to get some 135x16 LR to fit it in size #19, 20 , 21 . Does anyone have a source for those.. preferably in North America, Ideally in Toronto. Thanks!
  22. Hi, I am new to the forum and wondering what sewing machine to buy...Techsew 2750, Cowboy 227R, or a used Consew 227. I have never used a leather sewing machine (only my home husquvarna that I am wearing out). I make purses, bags, wallets, journals, etc... things like this. I also tool on 4-5oz leather and then (hand) sew that onto the bag. It is my understanding that any of the above machines will do what I'm needing, I'm just not sure which one to buy. It's a huge purchase and I want to get the right one. Thanks!!

    Techsew 2700 Or Techsew 2700 Pro

    I am looking into leather sewing machines - I want to get into making bags/purses/wallets - My question is what machine is the best for me to purchase? Anyone out there that can give me any advise that would be great! Thanks! Kristen
  24. The Cobra and Techsew big packages offer similar capacities and attachments other than the Techsew having the laser guide and coming with EPS. Are there any other significant differences? I know Cobra is all American made, but don't know about Techsew. I don't know if Cowboy offers an everything and the kitchen sink pkg or not, but would certainly entertain it as another American made option. Decisions decisions...
