General Discussion / table ?
October 23, 2011, 02:28:13 pm
I have had a great week for me!!!! I have tracked down a trimmer who i worked with years back. after talking with him. I approached him with a idea. let me learn from him for no labor fee. he agreed. now I can learn more about sewing and also I get to work on older classic cars. this is two areas that will further my goal of learning this trade. also will learn about convertible tops. also I was having problems with understanding how to thread, load bobbins correctly and stitch width adjustment. that's no longer a problem. he uses a LU-563 also. I'm so upbeat and feel my life is going in the right direction.after explaining to him that I have a servo on my table. he stated that learning on a clutch motor is crucial. the reason. what if at a later time. I go to work in a shop that uses clutch motors. what would i do ? my solution is to purchase a table without motor. I then could attach my clutch motor to stand and have both setups. I love my servo, thanks a million Greg. but at a later time need to get familiar with using a clutch motor. my question is in purchasing stand minus clutch motor. how to determine right table for my LU-563. I searched ebay and not sure which table accepts my machine. I figured someone here has that answer. thanks for your time and have a great day.
Has anyone used this product ? my wife claims it was best lube for embroidery machines. didn't know if it was okay for sewing machines. here's some info on product.
LB5 Spray Lubricant
Embroidery Machine Lubricant 300 ml / 10 oz
Comes with extension tube to facilitate lubrication in difficult  to reach places.

LB5 embroidery machine lubricant spray was developed specifically for embroidery machines. Features include a measured amount of spray lubricant per each nozzle depression, preventing over oiling and saturated garments. LB5 provides over 3,600 applications per can. Does not drip or run, LB5 stays where you spray it. Great for use on Embrodiery Machine Rotary Hooks, Needle Bar Driver and Bearings, Needle Bar, and Connecting Rod and Head trimming Parts. just wanted some feedback .
General Discussion / hot wire foam cutters
October 01, 2011, 05:08:31 pm
Does anyone have any experience with using hot wire foam cutters? my wife's father designed a hot wire cutter for foam insulation. he made alot of money off his design. it made it possible to use thinner layers for industrial buildings. I figure use his experience and maybe design a portable unit for auto and boat foam repair and replacement. also this gives the two of us some common ground to relate to each other.                                                                 David
