  1. I’m refurbishing the table top that came with a 206RB-1. It is a Singer top with Singer knee lift. Trying to figure theplacement of the knee lift. I have the roller lever from a 206 RB-5 on the machine. Using the assembly drawing (lower) from a SEIKO STH-8BLD-3, the shaft center line is 210 mm. Also found a drawing (top) for a 206RB-1, center line is 182 mm. What placement should I use? Can anyone get a measurement from their machine? Thanks. .

  3. Gymnast, Thanks for that info. Never realized about the relationship of needle size to diameter. I thought it had more to do with the hole size that thread goes through. I guess it’s a combination of both.
  4. Pierick, I am having the same problems with doing all the adjustments on a 206RB-1. Machine was sitting so long, had to do some removal of parts to clean it. And yes the RB-5 doesn’t have all the same components, making it difficult to service it correctly. Thanks for solving one of the things I needed to make an adjustment to. Found this info, First link from Keystone Sewing is for a SEIKO version of a RB-5. Good info. https://www.szwalnicze.com/cat_consew/consew_204_206_208.pdf https://www.supsew.com/download/Consew/Consew 206RB Operating Instructions.pdf
  5. Here’s what happens when the thread goes around the pin! This is what’s on the 206RB-1 I just bought. Don’t know how long it takes, but it will wear.
  6. Consew 206RB-1 I just acquired has a worn tensioner pin from routing the thread around it.
  7. Thanks! Plan was to get both , but don’t have room for it.
  8. Was talking to a coworker about my Consew 226 I just got, he tells me about a neighbor that has two industrial machine for sale. Price was $100 for both. I go and check them out, a Singer 211G166 and a Consew 206RB-1. Well I couldn’t leave without taking one! So I got the Consew. Machine looks decent but needs some work. The seller said last time it was used was about ten years ago. Going to go through it, normal clean up, lube and adjusting. My question is, what lube to put in the bevel gears?
  9. Finally got the machined cleaning finished today. Need to get it all oiled now!
  10. Thanks Wizcrafts & CowboyBob for explaining that.
  11. What is the difference in thread size for the standard hook #33-B1830-563-0A0 and the heavy thread hook #42-B1830-563-BA0 that is used in the LU-563?
  12. Thanks for that CowboyBob, Cleaning the machine will be this weeks project. Yes, I do have a Pontiac. It’s a 64 Lemans, that is a GTO clone.
