  1. Yes its always good as you say to remove the bobbin case, and clean it out. That bobbin case holder; it has the finger on it. This may need reset from the bottom side with its screw. In some situations a different one can be obtained. One has to remember these holder/finger surfaces require care, and spacing. Some aftermarket special parts may have a bit different /finger. This could be discussed, I'm not familiar with aftermarket or custom Is there an engineers manual at your location, handy. An ops manual is also a benefit but some items are better illustrated in these others, including a parts book. Good day Floyd
  2. I can try to help out a bit, so first tip maybe an option you could happily consider. Off-topic link removed On another note, its always a good discussion on brands and service facilities. It maybe an option near by for sale, as its usually a great place to search pretty heavily from my opinion. Have a good day Floyd
  3. They all could! do some sewing for you, but in reality they all need an additional pulley reduction setup. To properly work projects your considering at a better speed. They don't give these accessory items away at all! I believe they all have a small bobbin setup, but thats fine. A size 92 thread can be used in your projects, and Im sure thats smaller than your using now. Something to research in hand can help there imho. It looks like your viewing a dealer of sorts in the ad, so that may have options. I like to think having reverse is for me, a non negotiable requirement. Good day Floyd
  4. Good tip, thanks! Its been on my mind so many times to get a few tools as this. Yes people I have used the usual clamps n boards or aluminum i have, ( gettr done ). But these styles with actual clamping have been on a short list for awhile. Good day Floyd
  5. Nice! A great opportunity it looks like, also the 15 series listed is a bit much, but I understand it has its benefits. Thanks for the tip
  6. Where are you located, and whats the typical projects being made. It’s always a benefit when employees can and want to carry a bit more at times to help out. I do have plenty reservations on working like that with little reward. I have very strong feelings toward that with both sides, and never hesitated to voice my opinion, respectfully in a proper setting. I hope ya find the parts you need, its been said before the dealers in the banners can obtain parts, or if you ask in post such needs. Im sure some can forward you to a parts supply. Good day Floyd
  7. Sometimes I wonder! The movement issue has been discussed before here, but I cannot recall a specific post. I would do some searching and consider adjustment procedures, it was not manufactured like that so plan for down time. Have a good day Floyd
  8. Welcome to the machinery page, its always good to hear theres an interest. With that the general price you mentioned in your post is a great figure to consider a good used industrial of 20-30 years. Honestly keep your eye on the possible sales in your area. Also if you have your location listed in your profile others can help now or in some future concern of yours. Lets consider machine brands, as they may have different models of a same type. For instance a walking foot style, so its doing some questions and homework to establish particulars, that best benefit your needs within price. Good day Floyd
  9. I think, from my view I would advance the hook a bit. Possibly a little higher in the scarf. Its difficult to arm chair your problem, but adding to that, the inconsistency of the issue can throw another contributing issue in the mix. So I have to say its a guess, although another few photos showing the hook timing itself can be a benefit. It may be a burrr on the feed dog bottom side or where a loop is designed to form. Good day Floyd
  10. I seen the cylinder arm in the cs ads down there along with a juki 1541(standard). And as I thought you had scoped it out a bit already. Im not sure on parts availability on mercury brands, I could be mistaken but recall some mention of this particular. So consider this a bit, if others can expand on that. Good day there Floyd
  11. Starwind0: So were back to original post, yes a classic hijack, but I am sorry. I didn't hold my hand up and say hey, it might be a good thing to make a separate post. I am as many partly responsible. So moving forward in any case. Its likely the moderators can move many previous post to another separate post once corrective, new post is made. Floyd
  12. As Wizcrafts mentioned the needle systems! This was as I recall another new terminology that took me a bit to catch on. Needles and sizes, well they are still a total separate issue, especially all the designers from afar coming up with their own particular. To move ahead, id like to mention I use that square thread guide in helping prevent thread “ many times “ slacking some? how and looping over my tension spring knob. Don't ask me how but i have the same trip with any of my thread sizes of all types. But its posted up here for any tips or answers, it also many times loops my take up lever guard. In any case machine models can be different in same models from factory, as in some tension lever springs etc.. In a good Friday close I would loosen the top tension as it looks as though the bottom bobbin thread knots are sitting atop screamin give me some cover! I kinda like the main thread post threaded that way myself; bottom first then around back and forward through top. But more importantly I think is being consistent in whatever choice, as patterns are beneficial. Have a good weekend Floyd ps: some old tarp material is sure cheaper for test runs initially.
  13. I am glad for the positive outcome, and proud of your actions. It is sad to say but a fact, the amount of products being pushed out of factories for the initial good purpose. Has proven consistent with all this product manipulation. The difference among some people and locations with regards to product quality and honor is seriously lacking, and has been unless a high degree of outside supervision is stringently consistent. Floyd
  14. Thats a very nice setup. It’s also interesting how these changes are taking place, especially toward the weight of materials used or not necessarily! Being a requirement to use, compared to the past. Where some motors we have like the venerable clutch type and such were dependent in their own strength to carry itself. Thanks for posting Floyd
  15. Maybe posting a photo can help. I will say the top tension knob is highly unlikely to need much tension. With either style of tension plate offered. I mean they do make thin tension wire springs, but don't think its a standard issue, rather the opposite. Its interesting and a bummer to hear that the tensioner doesn't release. Or did not until your repair. I would call and get a few factory parts in short order. Sure cannot hurt a thing. With all the excitement it sounds like your on a good path. Good day to ya Floyd
