  1. Bob,

    I think I spoke too soon! When I went to use the machine tonight the reverse will not make any stitches, but at least now the needle does not hit. Is there another adjustment I can make?

    Put it on a long stitch & check to see if it hits in the front or back,if not you can loosen the screw in pic#1 & adjust it there,If the feed dog is hitting then you'll need to loosen the 2-screws in pic#2 that are underneath.

    HTH

  2. Thanks Bob!

    You are the man!

    I made the adjustment under the machine as you said first then I fine tuned things with the screw on the top of the machine.

    Works just fine now, Thanks Again!

  3. Hi Everyone

    I just bought a New feed dog and needle plate for my Tacsew T111-155 . It is larger than the one I had on it and after I installed it,

    It sews fine however when I press the reverse lever it brakes the needle. Upon investigation, when the lever is pressed the needle moved backward and strikes the feed dog and brakes.

    Any ideas how to adjust this correctly?

    Thanks In advance!


  4. Hi guy.

    I have a few questions for you that may or may not help. Are you grasping the threads as you start to sew? Have you increased pressure on the presser foot? Is your needle in good shape and not dull, bent or otherwise damaged?

    These are all things suggested by a domestic sewing machine company... but the prinicples are the same for commercial machines. Good luck.

    Thanks for the advice! I got things working now. It seems the needle bar did get pushed up after all!


  5. I have a new to me Tacsew T111-155 that is acting up on me.

    The manual is a joke so there is no help there so I am hoping

    someone else here has had the same issues before.

    When I start to sew thicker material I get skipped stitches.

    When I slow way down it is better but still a few skipped here and there.

    I can sew fast in reverse with no issues. I can also sew thin nylon with no issues.

    Any Idea what I need to do to fix this problem?

    Thanks Everyone!


  6. Strangest thing, Now I have a new problem that I am unfamiliar with. I keep breaking about 1/8" of the tip of my needles.

    I cant figure out what is wrong. I am sewing with the same needles and material and the same way as with my 111-155 but the consew just keeps breaking tips now.

    Any Ideas how to fix this?


  7. Hi Bob,

    Thanks for the photo. No mine did not look like that. It was tripped. I manually "clicked" it into place but something is still binding in there. Just turning it by hand it was tripped again.

    I reset it and visually I can see no debris or broken/bent parts. It will run only if I manually tun the hand wheel as I press the foot pedal. When I turn things by hand you feel it bind at a point then turn freely again.

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks in advance


  8. Hi Bob,

    I tried it but I don't think it was the clutch. It never tripped. I got it worked up with oi to go forward and backward intermittently. I think there is somthing wrong with the case that holds the bobbin. How can I take it out to clean it?

    It also will not let me pull the thread up to begin sewing.

    Any other ideas?


  9. Hello,

    I Got a new to me older consew 226 this weekend. I oiled it up and tested it out on several layers of nylon, got the stitch length adjusted where I wanted it.

    Then today I started sewing on my first project with it and the feed dog stopped working. I turn the wheel by hand and nothing. I also noticed the stitch length regulator no longer works.

    Any Idea what might be wrong or how to fix it?

    Thanks in Advance.
