    That spreadsheet is terrific!  Thank you!  Did you make it?  Thanks for sharing.

    I do have the machine back in working order now and it's been a learning experience.  Next time will be much easier.


    Yes, I did make the spreadsheet and added it to my three ring binder with various other 206RB manuals. I find the spreadsheet an easy and quick resource in finding specific adjustments. I'm glad you find it useful. Feel free to share with others also.

  2. The hook assembly will not be able to go back in unless either the needle is up, or there is no needle installed.

    Check out these two videos for setting up your Consew 206. These two videos are pretty long, but the go into great detail on how to set the timing and general maintenance of your machine. The first few seconds of each video will give you time stamps for the various topics. Here's a spreadsheet that you can print out for easy reference for the videos.

    The synchronizers work fine with speed reducers.  I have them on two machines.  Since the speed reducer is ahead of the synchronizer mounted on the handwheel and it works off of position it doesn't even know if there is a speed reducer.

    From what I can tell, there are different ways to keep track of the needle position. One would be to only use a sensor that would keep a constant and absolute position of the needle, another way would be for the sensor to only to keep track of the needle every 360 or 180 degrees of rotation and compare that to where the motor position is.  The position sensor that I purchased only provides a position pulse every 180 degrees. Just my thought on why some systems would work and some do not.

  4. I recently installed a New Tech 750w brushless motor on my Consew 206RB-1 with a speed reducer. After getting the needle position synchronizer installed, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get it to recognize when the needle is up or down. Does anyone have experience with this equipment? When I have the positioner turned on, there is no consistency as to where the needle stops, making it hard to figure out what is going on.
