    Well, I finally have a good picture of the SEWMOR 404. Got it all cleaned up and running a couple days ago.


    This is a very smooth running machine. It will need some fine tuning but that is to be expected.


    Caroline,
    I haven't heard from you yet so here is a couple pics of the busted up motor and fan:
    Motor:

    Shaft diameter where the fan rides: 8.25 mm
    Brushes: 4.9 mm x 5.65 mm

    Fan:

    [QUOTE=J Miller;4986307]Caroline,
    These cases are covered in a weird fabric or wallpaper from the factory. I'm pealing it off because when the case came apart it tore the paper up and it looks hideous.
    I'm not sure if I'm going to recover it with cloth or wall paper. But I'm going to try to match it as close as I can.
    Got any idea where I can find alligator skin pattern wall paper in brown and black? Or a fabric like that? That's what I need.

    QUOTE]

    After looking at some of my cases, I am thinking that they were covered in some kind of oil cloth. I wonder if a light naugahyde would work instead of wall paper?

    Caroline,

    My HOTHER was covered by a black material that had a fabric type quality to it. It had an alligator skin type pattern on it.
    MY SEWMOR was covered by a brown material that was a paper of some kind. It had the same alligator skin pattern as the Hother case did. The only paper I've seen that resembles it was wall paper.

    I have another case with the same pattern and I think it's paper too. But that case is in OK shape so I'm not gonna tear it apart to see.

    Once I get the wood parts cleaned, and glued back together it really doesn't matter what I cover them with. I'm just hoping to find something similar to the original.

    Although if I used a mat black material I could tell everybody it was my "tactical" sewing machine. LOLOLOL
    Or, I could do one in digital camo. That might be pretty neat.

    If I could find a light cloth with pics of sewing machines on it I'd use that on one of them. Just for the fun of it.

    Check this website. It has some cool faux leather or naugahyde.
    http://www.diyupholsterysupply.com/Allie1.html

    I do think that I saw some camo oil cloth when I was searching.
    Hmmm, I am thinking that one can buy wall covering that is heavier than regular wall paper. More searching to do on that one.

    Oooooooo, I be likin that faux leather stuff. That would be nice. My only thought would be how will it bend and contour to the curves and how to glue it one. Oh and how thick is it?
    I bookmarked the site, and as soon as I get the wood finished I'll order the free swatches they mentioned. That should answer my questions.

    Thanks for the link.
