    Sneakers ER

    The machines in the video are Chinese and take up a lot of room so, Angelo is very good with trainers and it's something that so far hasn't taken off here. In Europe and the States it's big business at the moment using steam cleaners with some cleaning fluid, they are great at reviving and cleaning but not so good at stain removal although most of the time it's people who want their trainers reviving.
  2. We sell Guttermann thread alongside another one in many colours

    Old books

    McKay is a cover all name and people sometimes refer to DNs as McKay so can be a chain stitcher or a lock stitcher

    Problems with Gravograph

    The IS200 is quite adjustable to get it flat again

    Standard 8500

    Mount a switch and use the blue and browns from the broken contactor - not the brown loop wire

    Standard 8500

    They're magnet based and the coils will have gone. A simple try is to drown them in wd40 (nothing else as some others don't like electricity) or you have to fit modern equivalents which may have slightly different wiring. It's single phase by the look of it? You could just simplify with an on off surface mounted switch - doesn't look so good but would work

    Vintage Machinery

    The chain stitcher was made by Pedersen of Denmark and would probably have been split to get it in. Chances are it's around 70 years old - is there an age in the catalogue at all?
  8. Do they look like a left and right or both the same shape? We didn't start having lefts and rights until 1818 so that might help a little dating

    PR88 is the one we sell and people who use it find it works well its like having a pair of gloves on until you wash then apply again - it seems to be the best one looking at reviews - I think it's £11 from us plus post maybe worth shopping around

    Have you tried barrier cream at all?

    Converter for 3 phase

    Yes and yes but simple enough for you so long as motors are dual voltage.

    Converter for 3 phase

    Hi Payson, depends on the stitcher motors and the voltages they can run at, if they are dual voltage 200/400 3ph you can do this relatively cheaply around £150-£200 if not it could be expensive
  13. 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

    Crash in 'company' vehicle

    It's less than an excess would be anyway but as for who pays it depends on what your contract of employment and driving policy says

    Advice with standard 842

    I don't think it's a joke Neil, you asked : After saying about using cable ties then mentioned moving the machine so a perfectly good question. That may be why a joke doesn't make any sense
  22. But that would ruin democracy. Have another referendum that says stay by a small majority so we have another and another, where does it stop? There was a piece I read the other day, what if the referendum had voted Stay but the MPs were convinced the electorate were wrong and pushed through a leave deal, how much uproar would that cause?
  23. My constituency area also voted out but our Conservative MP Nadine Dorries has always voted the way she has been told something I didn't expect so good for her, how it should be. The problem is generally this puts you off voting.
  24. We definitely do them can't remember if they are 250 or 260 but whatever it is there's not much difference
  25. 375w is very unusual now and very hot? We sell 250w I think but a quick google of the top line of that box will find them if you really want 375w
