    Threading an Adler 105-64

    We recommend going through 2-holes as some threads have a tendency to work their way out of the 1st tension if you only go through 1-hole,the slight extra tension it gives will prevent it from happening.
  2. Maybe this will help?

    Landis #3 threading

    Don't forget back when these machines were made they never knew about this new-fangled nylon twisted thread,so I think you have so much pressure @ that point it's pinching the thread too much,try a lighter spring.I've ran them with nylon & never had any trouble.

    Singer 97-10 help

    You only need that part called the thread lock for when your sewing real thick leather like 3/4" or so.You can use a 1/2 -3/4 HP motor.

    Need help Identifying this Consew machine

    I doubt if it's a Consew,the label could of just been stuck on there be someone along the line.Lookup Mitubishi DY-337,the newest & improved model with auto-lube is probably on ebay model #318 or 5318. It has the top feed feet that have teeth on them & the lower feed dog has them too & will mark & scratch leather,these are great sewing canvas.& tarps.

    128x20 is a round point ,128x22 leather point is correct needle for your machine.

    Help with Singer 236 Needles

    Most people would use the needle that is recommended,if your machine has been re-timed it's just a matter of adjusting the needlebar to use the correct needles that you have.You just take the needle plate off & turn the machine around until the point of the hook is @ the needle & the eye needs to be approx. 1/8" below the hook point.If it needs to be adjusted,open the faceplate,locate the screw on the needlebar clamp ,loosen it & raise or lower as needed.When reinstalling the needle plate be sure the small metal tab on the bobbincase is in the groove of the needle plate before you tighten the screws.

    7-34 Motor recommendation ?

    FWIW ,the one we sell runs slower due to the 2" pulley Everyone else including Consew sells them w/a 3" pulley.

    Yes,they phased these out quite a few yrs ago & do not even have any parts for them. You could sew on the road with this one Driver!

    Paint match Consew Grey?

    The some of the older Consews where black from the factory.Home Depot has a hammertone grey that'll work if you want it grey.
  16. You might try oiling the pressure bar at the bushings.

    Tension problems

    The most common cause for looping underneath is improper threading(make sure it's pulled all the way between the discs) or too loose of tension.

    Long shot...Siruba machines?

    I would spray something like WD40 on it & blow it off with air if you have an air compressor.That arm is for the upper thread to make it cover the stitch on top,it really isn't that hard to install,put it on & you'll see it needs to go in front of the needles,all the way to the left so the thread from it goes behind all the needles. Any clear sewing machine oil will work.
  22. Most 45's will only sew to 3/8",45K53 was their harness stitcher,it has feed dogs that pull the leather back & sewed to 1/2".
