  1. I have a singer 153W102 cylinder machine I can't get the top thread to pull up the bottom thread tight no matter how loose I make the bobbin thread I have made the tension on the top thread tight till it breaks when pulling. Still can't get it to work properly. It seems to me the take up arm is out of time but I can't find an adjustment for it. Seems to be a fixed item? Can I buy a book that describes the adjustments> I have a ;manual that covers 153W100 and 101 and 154W100 but not the 153W102. I don't see any instructions to cover this problem other than the thread adjustments I'm using a 130/21 (dpx17 135x17) needle and bonded T-135 16oz sol-poly thread. I have tried needles up to # 23 and 24 with the same result problem.

  3. I have the same problem with a cylinder Singer 153W Installed a new tensioner completely. Even when I run the tension so tight it's just short of breaking the thread. I thought perhaps the thread lifting arm was out of time. as far as I can tell it's not adjustable? My thought is that the foot is out of time , but is moves well keeping the needle centered. Any Ideas would be helpful. I don't mean to hijack this thread , perhaps I should start a new one? I'm new here. Frankpkny
