  1. Gregg, Thanks for your reply!!! I had gone through the whole adjustment process when I first acquired this machine going through the 206rb-5 manual. I was getting some major thread issues and ready to pull my hair out. So, I did the entire process again using the Seiko manual and completed it today. There were a few other differences from manual to manual so I went strictly by the Seiko manual. I tested both fabric and soft leather; so far so good. I am hoping for a great day tomorrow with no further "Help" posts to leatherworker.net, at least for now. Thanks again, Heidi
  2. I bought a Consew 206rb-3 several months ago and am finally trying to get it up and running. I purchased a Servo Motor from Toledo Industrial Sewing Machines and swapped the old motor and that went great. I am now attempting to adjust everything as I am getting skipped stitches, no stitches and uneven stitches. I do not and cannot find a manual for it but do have the Seiko STH-8BLD-3 manual. Step 8-3 Adjusting feed dog position shows two distances 32.1 and 31.5, which is correct? I have attached the page. Thanks, Heidi
  3. Thanks, Gary! I sent an email to Bob at Toledo and look forward to hearing from him. Heidi
  4. I just acquired a Consew 206RB-3 in near mint condition for $250.00 and am beside myself excited! I have not used a walking foot machine prior to this and am wondering about any and all things related to it. I am thinking a Servo motor might be the way for me to go but don't know what model or where to purchase? I am planning on sewing heavier fabrics and leather. I have been reading everything I can get my hands on most of which has been online. I do have operators manuals for ever Consew 206RB except the 3, (my model of course). I have gone over the entire machine and everything seems to be working as it should. I'm not certain but it looks like the oil wicks on the top of the machine may have gotten shredded, (I've included some photos). I have been searching online for replacement oil wicks and haven't found any. Does anyone have a source for those? Also are there supposed to be any wicks in or around the needle bar area? Is there anyone out there that lives in the Lexington, Kentucky or Ohio that may have sources for supplies like thread, needles and etc., or even online sources that can help someone like myself new to this kind of machine? Any help or advice greatly appreciated. Thanks, Heidi ,
