  1. If you turn the machine by hand (slow) you can see if the stitch in reverse is longer or constabulary is right (my guess would be you are missing stitches in reverse...) regards michiel

Kind regards michiel

    Adler 167 - Timing Belt Replacement

    ther are no timing marks, but when you put the neelde and hook in the right position for timing the hook you only have to put the belt on its place

    Post bed machines

    The post of an one-needle machine is significant smaller and you can sew closer to the edge (of the post)

    Pfaff 191-5 timing

    If you cannot find an service manual i would try it with an other brand postbed sewing machine the adler 68 looks not verry different to me http://www.duerkopp-adler.com/commons/download/download-text-attachments/Vintage_Manuals_Adler/Manual_Adler_68.pdf if that doesnot work you could use the partsmanual for your machine and for the adler to find out how it is for your machine it might be a puzzle but if you print them all and do some close reading you can do it (for me this method works) http://www.duerkopp-adler.com/commons/download/download-text-attachments/Vintage_Parts_Books_Adler/68.pdf
  10. I temporary took down the setup but Thuis Will give an idea:
  11. I made a case which fit an industrial sewing machine head the same way they are used for domestic sewing machines (just a litle bit bigger most of my adlers fit in it...
  12. I have seen such an feet / device on an double needle adler 167 there is an picture of it in the adler 167 leaflett (page 5) http://www.duerkopp-adler.com/commons/download/download-text-attachments/Vintage_Leaflets_Adler/Leaflets_Adler_Class_167_part2.pdf Its a different machine but it gives an idea how this could work

    Adler 69 373 Advice :-)

    My adler 69-373 likes thread 20 (which should be about 135 i believe) bottum adn upper thread. But its seems a machine with a lot of "historie" / pre owners so maybe someone tinkered a litle bit with it
