    Thread tension and twisting

    This is the Thread Stand I was using with a domestic machine when I was having problems, rather then make a new stand to give me more height I brought a industrial Machine and set it up at it's stand at the maximum height I could. I don't think it would be to hard to make a higher top bit if you used heavier rod, then I did.

    Thread tension and twisting

    Some time back when I was have problems winding bobbins, I found this gem from gottaknow, "For example, if the height of the cone is 8", the first loop the thread passes through should be 20" from the base where the cone sits. " And I leave all my machines setup this way and have no problems to speak of.
  3. I think it looks like my Adler 105-6, which is drop feed only.

    Bobbin holder case

    Brian, looks like you have designed them to be stacked, better then chucked in a small box like mine.

    You can buy a Thread Stand for the larger spools from eBay or I found it easy to make a separate stand for the larger spools
  8. Your machine appears similar to my 31K47 and it should have a gap like you have. I do not know the size of the gap, but the bloke who used my machine told me he made it bigger so he could turn corners easier with out losing tension. Stuart.

    Beware of "semi-industrial" sewing machines

    I think these must be the "RARE" machines I see listed on there?
