Hi Jimi

I will just have to let the paint harden for a few weeks.

Then I will start assembling the machine again. I had to fit a 2 mm metal plate between the arm the machine.

I also had to drill new holes, as the arm is attached with three bolts, whereas the 3S arm had four bolts - but I think, it will work out.

Cheers

Søren

Hi Cumberland

Considering the amount of time going into this, it is not worth the money - compared to having a job.

But right now, I am not working due to corona, so it fills out my day.

Besides, very few people in Denmark know anything about skiving machines, so maybe within time I can

build knowledge, that could turn into a small business.

Kind regards

Danishman

Starting to put the machine together today.

As mentioned earlier, I had taken the huge 3S arm off the machine. The plan is to fit an arm from a older Fortuna machine, that I bought last year.

The 3S arm was attached to the machine with four big bolts, whereas the normal arm is fitted with three bolts. For that reason, I had to drill three new holes.

One of the holes went through the structure holding the knife shaft. I had to make a wedge with a hole through it. For that I used metal from the big 3S arm. To make the bolt fit, I also used a piece of of metal from an old skiving machine handle.

The transport wheel shaft goes through the arm. I had to make this hole slightly bigger by using a dreamed tool.

Tomorrow, I will keep putting the machine together.

I recently adjusted the position of the presser foot of a Fortuna sm50. The original position of the presser foot was to the left, which caused the feeding wheel to sink and the feeding was not smooth. Because of the structure limitation, it only moves 1~2mm to the right, which will not affect the use.

Good morning Falseyellow

How did you adjust the position? The arm has alignment pins or?

Today, I spend several hours grinding - to fit the new arm to the Fortuna 3S skiving machine.

To be able to use the arm, I had to fit a 2 mm metal plate between the arm and the machine. For that reason

I had to enlarge the hole to make the shaft going through the arm rund freely.

Completed the machine today.

Will bring it to a friend next week. He is a sewing machine mechanic with 55 years of experience.

We will fine tune it together
