Adler 069-373 Bech Restoration

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I hope everyone is well.

I recently put out a few questions to you re. purchasing an Adler 069-373 - thanks again for your help and patience - well I went ahead and bought one and thought I would share the results with you. 

I rebuilt the table in 40mm ply (just over 1 1/2") , stained the top, re-fit the head, fit the new 1hp servo motor, added a leather belt, fit the knee lever, fit the lamp, fit the thread holder and finally the draw (not in the pics).

Still a bit of work to do - new EDL machine lamp decal and to eventually convert this beautiful machine to a binder - curtesy of KHSew. Will post about that upgrade too. I may build a wooden flat bed for it also..

I really enjoy working on these old machines, I did my Adler 105 and it looks just as good as this on it;s original heavy duty stand.

Thanks for looking, keep up the good work
