LOL! Looks like a Trimmer's Club is developing here this week! I'm looking forward to learning with you, Bro'! Join in with us! Dusty just got his machine and is waiting to get it back from a tune up ... I just got mine and am waiting for the right size belt to put on so I can rev 'er up! But in the meantime, I've mounted the machine on the table, and just finished modifying my treadle (foot control) and adjusting the servo motor to give me more control. I'll be posting exactly what I did on my site in a couple of days -- my site is about to become a Tacsew T111-155 tutorial site.


The electronic servo motor is something new in the trade (so I gather) ... they say it gives you more control than the standard clutch motor and from what I've seen tonight, playing with it and my treadle, I believe it's true; I can gently nudge the treadle and watch the pulley turn as slow as a turtle on valium.

You can link to those two books at my site - here:
