    Although this is a goodyear the principle is the same for setting the needle - notice how close the looper is to the hook that holds the thread back then where it wraps around the needle - As for the gap there is no right or wrong but I find they work better when you bring the awl to about 1mm away from the needle at it's closest

    Ebay sometimes staggers

    Not if they've broken something that needs welding, it's all cast that won't be cheap and they are pretty poor o/s stitchers when in good condition
  10. More and more there are machines advertised on ebay that you just look and think that someone is going to be mugged if they buy that, sometimes there are some real bargains on there but this listing just blows my mind. This is an outsole stitcher that was obsolete from 1945 on. They say it has some damage and some welding will fix it. And they want £1700????? I think they must have meant £1.70 and got carried away. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shoe-Repair-Machine-Outsole-Stitcher-Pederson-Goodyear-Collect-from-Coventry/254095994926?hash=item3b294d302e:g:FI8AAOSwJ3RcErw-:rk:14:pf:0

    Thanks for finding this, it's strange the things you find out when someone passes on have known him for a long time as well as his family business and would never have known this. RIP Horace

    Staple gun playing up

    Steel City doing that's ok although doesn't do a great deal other than lube the driver it won't get past the seals to get inside the gun. Worth spraying some wd40 into the hose and plugging back in once in a while

    Staple gun playing up

    WD40 will clean better and not leave quite as much residue, the plastic inside the gun doesn't take to kindly to too much oil, GT85 is great for lubricating metal. Agree WD40 is useless for stitchers etc but air guns it is better plus whatever you put in a gun will come out as well through the vent

    Staple gun playing up

    Could be seals but first thing to do is unplug the gun from the fitting then spray a load of wd40 down the hose plug back in and keep firing to see if it clears. A common problem is the plastic sleeve the driver sits in so only real hope is wd40
