HI, I recently purchased a really old Auto Soler shoe finisher. I want to say it is a Tone Master model from 1966. I fixed some things that were wrong with it but now that I am going to run it, I am not sure about what voltage it needs. The plug is a regular 110 plug but the guy who sold it to me said that he thought maybe it was supposed to be 220. Does anyone know anything about these machines or how I could deduce from a plate on a motor what it is supposed to be? They all seem to say 115/230. There is a motor for the sander, a motor for the vacuum and a motor for the brushes. All can be switched on separately. The motor for the brushes seems to have its own power cord. The other two are tied into one power cord, that is thick, but still 110.
mangorunner posted a topic in Shoe Repairs - Sponsored by Cherry Blossom shoe careThese women's Bandolino stacked loafers have been nice shoes and the leather uppers are still in really good shape. However, the top-piece/top-lift of both heels came off on the same day this past week. Please see attached photos. Can these be repaired? Is it something I could do myself? I'm not a cobbler or shoe-repair person but I'm reasonably proficient at do-it-yourself-type stuff. How would these be repaired? I'm thinking that a stick-on or glue-on replacement wouldn't work very well. Are there replacement top-pieces that are a tap-in style with prongs inserted into those four holes in each heel? If so, where can I get them? The heels measure 1 5/8 inches x 1 5/8 inches (or 4 cm x 4 cm). If I should use a tap-in type replacement, do I just need to clean/ream out the four existing holes and then tap on the new top-pieces? Maybe apply a little glue to each prong? Thank you very much in advance for the help. It is greatly appreciated!
