    Odd question and I apologize in advance, you wouldn’t happen to be from the Piedmont of N.C. would you? Your vernacular is very similar to folks around that area.

    Is there a standard bobbin for these? Just got mine and I would like to preload a bunch of bobbins.

    Another way you can back stitch is just by flipping your walking foot. So if you have a big item that you can’t swing around backwards, you can just flip that walking foot and it will walk backwards; It will walk in any direction.

  9. Cristo on August 6, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    I can see the needle are 110/18 and the thread are heavy duty but how do I know if the thread will fit in the needle ? What the size of the thread you are using ?



  10. Dolkar Sherpa on August 6, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Hey! I bought this recently but needle keeps breaking do you have any idea how why?



  11. francois COQUET on August 6, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Where do you find your sort of angled needle with an orange handle ? I checked your Amazon store bu din’t food it



  12. Jeff Allen on August 6, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Your tension is off a bit. Try to get the lock stitch to be in the center of the 2 different layers.



  13. epic snks on August 6, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Nice,just ordered me one of these,i might add an Magnetic Led light with Motiondetection, goes on only when you use it.



  14. crognasty on August 6, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    What weight of thread do you use with this machine? I purchased one and can’t figure out how to get it to stitch, all my thread gets snapped



  15. Michael on August 6, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    Nice.



  16. Cody Cannon on August 6, 2021 at 10:05 pm

  17. nantes loire on August 6, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    perfect.



  18. Zachary Callahan on August 6, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    You mentioned an American company with these machines. I would rather purchase from them if you happened to have their contact info.

    Hi , I am having a certain problem that I cannot fix at all.
    When I go to sew my stitching is not tight at all , and can basically just be pulled out. I believe that the bobbin isn’t pulling in the upper thread at all , where by the upper thread is just sitting at the top and can slide out of the material very easily. I have tried adjusting the tension in the bobbin but nothing works , please help!!!



  20. Jim Jenkins on August 6, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    Where did you get the machine.Also bantam saddle tack sells them and has parts



  21. Jeff Holt on August 6, 2021 at 10:14 pm

  22. C Luek on August 6, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Glasses also serve as protection when a needle breaks



  23. Eric Vladimir on August 6, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Where is your amazon link?



  24. Eric Mark on August 6, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Where the best place to by one



  25. Fractal Workshop on August 6, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    For a back stitch, do what you did when turning corners. Plant the needle all the way down (wheel at 6 oclock) before turning, otherwise you can skip a stitch.



  26. Buster Brown on August 6, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    What needle and thread are you using, and where do you find them?
    Thanks for a great video.



  27. Kristine Thomas on August 6, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    I just got one of these and your video has help immensely…also mine was came with out the threader…thanks for the great idea about the wire…



  28. Salvador Martinez on August 6, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    So did not give a name or website for the guy who is making the kits for this machine? Can you share it thanks.



  29. David Wense on August 6, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    What size thread and needle did you use in this video ?

    Hi, that’s a lovely simple machine, thanks for showing. The benefit of a long arm and small baseplate is that you can get to the middle of a big piece of canvas etc to sew a patch but it’s also harder to control straight lines than a regular sewing machine. Can I suggest maybe adding a small smooth block on the base plate next to the foot as a guide for edge sewing so your piece can run up against it. It needs to be lower than the thickness of your piece and it could be held with a clamp.
    Also, have you thought about making a simple treadle so you can use both hands? Maybe something like a pole lathe treadle with a bungee to a point above. The flywheel’s so big, I reckon if the cord from the handle down to the treadle board was offset to the side the flywheel would carry on past the bottom and be pulled up past tdc by the bungee.
    PS. I think for backstitch you rotate the whole sewing head clockwise with a thumb lever at the bottom.

    Can you make a vid on how to start and finish a stitch, I’m having a nightmare with mine and plenty of orders to deal with, also what needles do you use as I’ve snapped two of mine?



  32. Jim Jitsu on August 6, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    My thread keeps breaking someone help!



  33. Jackie Sanders on August 6, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    For 8 to 9 oz veg taN LEATHER NEEDS THREAD SIZE 277 BUT THIS MACHINE WONT HANDLE 277 THREAD. ANY SUGGESTIONS , I’M TOLD THAT 138 SIZE IS THE BIGGEST THREAD YOU CAN USE. I WILL ORDER SOME MORE BOBBIN SHUTTLES AND THE ONE WITH THE GEAR ON THE BOTTOM AND WORK ON THEM WITH FINE EMERY CLOTH TO INCREASE THE TOLLERANCE TO BE ABLE TO USE 277 THREAD.



  34. FOGHORNNC on August 6, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    impressed with the consistency of the stitch. I might have to get one of these..



  35. Marcus Mullings on August 6, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    How do i adjust the thread tensions? can you point out the time in the video if mentioned?



  36. Antonio Hernandez on August 6, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Nice stich what kind of thread you are using and size
