    It's good to see you back.

    I think they are on to something, put an add in HSM, sell a bunch, buy more tools.

    Okay shop aprons,

    I'll take two in Angus and one in Holstein

    Seriously a good shop apron is hard to find.And we just happen to know of a publication that sells advertising to folks selling things to machinists and blacksmiths

    Too bad you weren't here a couple weeks ago.I saw a nice old Clicker press heading down the road towards the scrapyard

    Toker, I mean Torker, it is nice to see you have landed on your feet after your Divorce. I am currently just starting the process.

    Around here, welding leathers in large sizes, (3xlt and up) are very hard to find. It might be something to think about.

    They sell the motor I installed.
    It's a no brainer as it uses the exact same mount as any clutch motor.
    The new motor is completely programmable from 200 to 1800(I think) rpm.
    Far far better for any intricate work and still plenty of torque.
    Whole upgrade cost me $200 Cnd.
    I think they sell the motors for about $150 USD????

    Thanks Torker,

    I think that will tame my machine. Thanks for the tip.

    That's very impressive Torker. Almost wish I owned a horse.


    I can see blacksmiths and welders needing quality leather protection.

    Dang! That's some nice equipment! Me, I just use glue and rivets.

    I third this thought, though I'm an ocean away. But since I aim to cast iron eventually, and the person on the other end of the pouring bucket will be a daughter, I'll want a second apron to suit one of the fairer gender, too.

    Nice to see you back.

    Funny...I have an old shop apron I made 25 or 30 years ago...has a dang handy metal strap on it for clipping a tape measure to.
    Never thought of selling them....hmmmm

    Torker,

    Thanks for sharing the pics. and such. Nice work.

    I am interested in the servo motor upgrade.

    I have a Consew 118? that runs 3,600 stitches per minute at full speed. Kind of scary till I got used to it.

    The lady I bought it from had bought it to sew teddy bears. When I asked her why she was selling it, she told me it "scares the crap out of me".

    Care to shart any info. on the servo conversion?

    Brian

    Very nice work Russ, thanks for posting, now hang out here again.

    Dang!! Some guys get all the luck measuring up young ladies to fit their chaps,,,i,m presuming this would be a lengthy procedure, with a number of call backs for fitting and of course adjustments?
