As a newby in this i see a lot on different forums and such of where can i get the books and # material, with very very few book selling options. Now i will pay much more attention. Its Possible the companies making after market items like the old 60s auto pieces.
Thanks and Good Day

Im glad you others feel the same about quality, thats why i listen a bit, thanks
Ive seen and been hearing "oh so great "stuff about birch plywood as the top line.
Well it is use to be a cabinet only grade available as i remember " old school " still is. Just marketing uses its cabinet quality reputation and has abused it as far as im concerend, bummer.
but nowadays it seems i see much better c/d roofing plywood and i can trust it to have some type of glue maybe not elmer himself but relatively close.
Good Day

Congratulations on the machine purchase, and Welcome to the site.
I am looking also at different new issues with machines and fabricating stuff, i wonder if the rear foot is turned slightly from parallel or if the feed dog has more / burr on top of a side making more pull on a side.  Just throwing this out someone can surley hit it shortly
Good Day

I might need to re adjust, at this time after looking again the check spring has thread tension to bottom or say bdc then release's and not untill 1/4" form tdc or top starts to tension again.

Thanks, i set it around the 9:00 as a manual pic shows. it looks loose on a down position some but i realy dont know what it would produce.
I wanted to ask here and i will look again.
Yes on the lift, i repinned and installed it so thanks i will try that.
I re adjusted the new bobbin winder for a full amount of 92 ultra i first purchased it was not quite full, with this i am seeing a change down thru a small marine cover. the test pieces looked to be 12' i sewed at refill. wow a larger one could be handy versus i think the g on the 212 i have.

Quick question Please, I need to loc the start and finish of a seam with this machine i have at present, it has no reverse. Do i sew 1/2 inch and cut n trim and return to start ? whats best

Another question on the check spring, is it suppose to constantly have a tension on thread.

I have sewed the first 12' of my life on a machine, i dont think anyone needs to worry. 
Good day to ya

bobbin sorry didnt mean to hijack the post, just wanted to give the company a thumbs up. I had talked to Bob Kovar on other things about materials and the top gun and odyssey was brought up so i gave them a call and was sent some product pages, and they mentioned some vendors. good luck with whatever you choose, im sure it will be good for the customer.
thanks all

Looking at the factory site of Marlen i see they have an interesting fabric / properties page and fabric finder page that is comparing the choices they offer, kinda neat i was going back and forth so i just printed them, Im sure they will continue to impress. I would just get quantities in an amount for future jobs i suppose, the normal planning you all do.  I realy want to ask others for there experiance on some materials like having fabrics look the same but different water or breathability on top and sides, Is this used much.?
I can do the charts but first hand knowledge, (experiance) is different.
Thanks to this place and supporters.
Good day

Mike
I do have a question for ya, Just want to say from a pro "listener" here thanks for all your guys and gals input on the site here.
Sounds like you stay pretty busy, Rock On.  The ole shop walk can be as good as a coffee or smoke when i did, but now coffee and walk or probably no walk as it has to be reheated.

? whats the norm for stitch per inch on your trailering or mooring covers.
Thanks

The drain could be purchased at an auto parts probably easier,  if i might suggest only because i have had more problems with the little wings finger just turning freely in past situations from draining these tanks for 35 plus years in garages and mobile vehicles. I have found though if a heavy duty " street " 90 fitting can be taped and installed in the tank a 2 buck 1/4" ball valve can be used. I realy found these work super, especialy if the handle has some clearance. My input basicly is stop by ace hardware with the old piece, good luck take tommorow off and let ace do the work.
Good Day

Paul  I read on Pfaff America's site they are or part of the company is "under one roof" with Durkopp Adler and this might be in Kaiserslautern Germany. I thought from looking at other stuff you all brought up i seen something about main tooling and parts in Czech Rep. for the company possibly, dont hold me to that though.
Good Day
