    Help with a Juki 562

    I'm so looking forward to finding the "easy" solution.... Yes, the hook assembly rests on the top of the thrust washer with or without the "opening lever crank" installed. I flipped the washer and "shimmed" the saddle, seems like plenty of clearance now. Just need to get my calipers back from a friend. I'm going to try and time the machine and see how it does. Thanks for the input!! Agreed, I have not been a member long, but am so very grateful for the answers and ideas that have come forth thus far! Thanks!

    Help with a Juki 562

    Ok! Purchased a few items, keeping me right close to my budget. Ordered a new hook assembly, slid it in and not to my surprise makes contact with the right slide plate. Still scratching my head on this one. I think tonight i'll try out dave's suggestion and place the shim (4+ stamped on it) on the other side and re-time and see how we look. Thanks everyone for your suggestions, I'll keep tabs if anyone has any other interesting ideas! Thanks!!!!

    Thanks for the suggestions Dave! The bobbin shaft assembly without the #5 lever link seats in the same position as with the link installed. I was thinking about shimming the bottom too! However, i'm not sure how that will change the gear mesh interface. I have a new bobbin case arriving today. Hopefully that will be it! Thanks!

    Here is the area of question. To me, albeit not a machine mechanic, but good with cars and other motors etc. these brass bushings seem to be in the right place. It'd be difficult to think how these would be out of place. I attached a few photos.

    Oh the craigslist woahs'... Can anyone take and post some photos for me? details of the bobbin assembly!? I'd be eternally grateful and send you a copy of my favorite book!!? Does anyone know how a brass bushing could be moved without a drift? I'll check the bushings tonight, do you know if these seat flush into the casting? Thanks, thats what i was gathering as well. The hook assembly that came with the machine is missing the tension spring and one screw, instead of trying to the whole thing (+$125 ) i just bought a new bobbin basket. Thanks for the attention and ya'll's help, i appreciate it!!

    Help with a Juki 562

    Well i got called off work, so i should have ample time today! Ive removed the hook assembly, cleaned everything again, and it's still sitting quite high in the case and contacting the plate. The hook is from a singer 111 which i can assume at this point should be interchangeable with the 562 part number 240556. Is there a chance that this is the wrong hook? I feel like i'm grasping at straws here. The bobbin case reads: 233764 which i can also deduct is from a 111. Again these parts "should-be" interchangeable, right? Thanks again for the help!

    Help with a Juki 562

    Yesterday i spent some time attempting to adjust just this. There seems to be a small amount of vertical play in the worm gear. but no room for adjustment when the set screws were tightened. I thought about removing the thrust washer to see if that would give me more clearance, but ran out of allocated "tinker time" OK! Well thats good to know!! Hopefully i didn't waste $13 i spent for the oem plate....Was there a link or page associated with this post? Quick google search was quite vague pulled up the page i needed!! I'll give it another go today afterwork! Thanks for hanging in there with me!!

    Help with a Juki 562

    I just tried that! The right slide does have relief under, and i can force the plate on but still catches on the bobbin lock? Anyhoo, I should be receiving a Juki plate on thursday, so maybe that was the issue? Thanks for the response!!! Also, i noticed in your signature you have a 563, any chance you could take photos of a similar angle?

    Help with a Juki 562

    I purchased a Juki from a someone who had told me it was in running condition for a very reasonable price.. I got the machine timed, or at least have some practice doing it. Thanks to UWE! and Dyer!! However, i am having some difficulty with the right slide plate. The plate provided looks aftermarket, and catches on the bobbin case when sliding over. I have attached some photos but the perspective is challenging. The slide plate contacts the part of bobbin case that holds the bobbin in. Do you think this is a slide plate issue, or a bobbin case issue? Also, from watching a lot of other youtube videos it seems that the bobbin case sits very high. Thanks in advance!
