I also accept your pfaff 130-6,130-50010 or pfaff 30 for restoration. I restore them personally after talking with you about your particular type of sewing and any special changes or additions you may want. You MUST Email a photo of the machines underside and all other 4 sides BEFORE Sending it in. This is for your protection as well as mine. I will put one of my specially machined handwheels on it as well as include a handcrank if you like. !It will look like and perform as a different machine WHEN you get it back.The base cost is $400.00 + You must pay shipping to and from my location and it must be Packed VERY WELL. From the west coast it is around $100.00 both ways but if from Texas or further east it may be half as much . you may be able to come up with your own PACKING MATERIALS But do not skimp as the machine will come damaged. Also insure it for at least $800.00 and ship it USPS parcel post ground which is cheapest and they do a great job for me.
There is not alot I can do about large deep chips down to the metal but (I WILL FILL, PAINT AND RUST PROOF THEM). DEEP scratches,Crazing and missing decals or (broken internal timing belts which are a rare occurance cannot be repaired with reasonable cost).
These machines have had every screw and adjustment turned and are terribly out of adjustment Most of the time.
THERE ARE a few PARTS I CHARGE FOR if you need them. I also have many feet and accessories for sale.
bobbin cases 23.99
New chrome face pates $100.00 (They are no longer made but I might be able to get you one,if you really need it. Will repair broken bottom cast iron feet.even if the foot is missing. $50.00 THIS TAKES TWO DAYS.
If there is no motor on the machine I will put one on FOR $90.00 -$110.00(1.5 amp NEW)VERY Strong and NOT Made in China like the Alphasew's are
IF THE HOOK IS MISSING IS IT $100.00(less than most other commercial hooks , TRY TO FIND THE OLD HOOK AS THEY ARE STRONGER.
:::::::::::::::::PACKING YOUR MACHINE :::::::::::::::::::
If I purchase a pfaff from you in a case ( YOU MUST DO EXACTLY AS I SAY ) THE WHOLE BED has to be wrapped to the case bottom with duct tape over plastic wrap. NOT JUST ONE PIECE OF TAPE AND NOT CLEAR SHIPPING TAPE .IT WILL ARRIVED DAMAGED AS WELL AS THE CASE BROKED.I've been doing this for 11 years and people still send damaged machines. It makes me really mad to see these beauties that have survived 50 - 60 years become damaged because they think they know better than me or they rush.( DON'T DO IT. )
Wrap the foot control in thick soft material so it doesn't scratch the machine unless you would like a new electronic foot control ($49.99 with block)They don't get hot and provide awesome slow speed control. The old controls are a fire hazard. IF YOU WOULD LIKE A NEW FOOT CONTROL PLEASE DO NOT SEND THE OLD ONE. If you do not have a case,FIRST WRAP THE MACHINE IN BUBBLE WRAP (BEING CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE THE LITTLE TENSION SPRING ON THE TENSION KNOB. PUT 3 OR MORE inches of HARD styrofoam under the machine and 2 inches of HARD styrofoam around all sides. If you have a case See Photo's below. Wrap saran wrap around the machine bed and case bottom them wrap over thiis TIGHTLY with DUCT Tape . Wrap themachine with bubble wrap and put the case top on ,If Plastic case-Leave latches un latched. Wrap case with saran wrap and tightly tape withh Duct tape as in the photos. Put this in a tightly fitting box.Put this box into a larger box with 3 inches of styrofoam peanuts under it and 2 inches of styrofoam peanuts around all other sides. Write DO NOT DROP in big letters on the top of the box as well as THIS SIDE UP. Also all machines MUST be double boxed. use Styrofoam peanuts . Bubble wrap the machine before you put the case top on. Also if it is a plastic case Please tape it on each end vertically them open the latches before wrapping and taping it horizontally bottom and top , this give room for the case top to shift just a little so the plastic tabs on the ends will not break. ( Wood cases can be left with the latches closed. )
the best size for the inner box is 20" x 15" x 10"
the best size for the outer box is 24" x 18" x 14" These may have to be special ordered from ebay or some where else . It will save money on shipping
Shown below are 3 BEFORE photo's and 2 AFTER photo's
================== BEFORE ================
That is not crinkle on the machine. It is 50 year old dried oil and god knows what. There is nothing that can be done about paint crinkle and Missing decals short of repainting and that is too time consuming. I may do it in the future but not as of this time.These machines are sometimes so stiff they turn hard and many times the zigzagknob is frozen solid.
THESE MACHINES ARE GETTIMG PROGRESSIVEY HARDER TO FIND. AND IF YOU HAVE ONE WITH THE ZEUSMACHINES NAME PLATE ON THE UNDER SIDE YOU WILL HAVE A RARE MACHINE AS I DO Not KNOW HOW MUCH LONGER I CAN DO THIS. SEE NAMEPLATE BELOW.
I SPEND MANY HOURS.WEEKS ON THESE AND THEY Do NOT GO OUT TILL THEY ARE TO MY APPROVAL.THIS IS HOW I KEEP MY QUALITY HIGH. I AM THE ONLY ONE I know of WHO RESTORES THEM TO THIS LEVEL. I COULD CUT CORNERS OR HIRE FLUNKIES BUT THE QUALITY WOULD GO DOWN AND I WOULD BE LIKE THE SELLERS ON EBAY WHO TRY TO COPY ME and CUT Corners , Most just shine them up and never even look into them.
DISCLAMER :AFTER I NOTIFY YOU THAT YOUR MACHINE IS READY TO SHIP YOU HAVE 14 DAYS TO PAY THE REMAINING BALANCE. Otherwise the machine will be sold (Prepaid amount nonrefundable)as I have no room for them. This also applies to specially ordered Machines.
HALF or all must Be paid up front (NON REFUNDABLE) as I have had MANY JUST DISSAPEAR AFTER WORKING ON THEIR MACHINE FOR AS MUCH AS 3 WEEKS.Most pay more than half up front. THESE ARE AWESOME MACHINES AND I have fallen in love with them. After all I am part German. ;)
