We like pictures. You will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button,

I would be interested to know why you got a "token error." I know that it says that the size that is accepted is 5MB, however, from my understanding that people who have tried larger than 2MB, can't. What kind of computer are you on? I have opened png files in "Paint" and it has an option to "Save As" in jpg format. I know that is what I use to post pictures on QB.

I found https://store.woodlandquiltworks.com...drives-pulleys that has a few drive pulleys.
I also found https://sewwhatman.wordpress.com/201...-drive-wheels/ that made his own, albeit not for the Turissa.

Janey you wonderful creature. That first link is great for some of us who resurrect oddballs.

Default Turissa Ultramatic Friction Drive Tires

I realize now that the lower one is an internal tire for the bobbin winder. The motor has two bolts that release it and it's easily removed.

My problem is I can't find anywhere to get an old service manual. I wonder if I should try to sell it for parts? I have the cams that go with it.
You are right, you drop the bobbin in the case [which opens by pushing a button and it drops down. You then lay the bobbin case in and shut it. I've never seen another machine other than pictures but it was an excellent machine, heavy-duty and could take on any job. For some reason, I thought it was made by Elna? All I can find is the Turissa name.

Have you decided what to do with your Turissa machine? I am interested in it or in it's accessories. Please let me know what your plans are for it. Mick
