  1. Hello Wiz Hello Wiz (dont know your first name) My first name is Marc . I like your participation to the forum. You got a lot of experience their. Really appreciate it. About the Singer patcher stitch length problem, i have the same issue on my 29K171. You wrote bronze build up. Is it possible please to see a picture of which part you've done it? Thanks
  2. Hello I am almost New to this forum . This reply is late but in case that you dont know, those 220 volts motors work on 110 volts. I got 5 of them on my actual machines. I like them alot. Their is a feature that this motor have that others dont have. When i kneel the pedal the motor turn the machine until the needle gets up (out of the sewn thing) I had 1 on a Juki lu 563 that i sold with it. Fabulous motors. If you need more power Just connect it on 220Volts but for the juki lu 563, 110v does the job.
  3. On my Singer 144 W, the bobbins are jumbo bobbins and they are expensive.( horizontal hook, top load) When i sold my Juki lu 563, i tried the bobbins that have smaller diameter and width then the 144W and they work perfectly without any issues with an under bobbin spring The most important thing is that they have the same diameter center hole and the spring under it. https://www.cafr.ebay.ca/itm/10-bobbin-tension-spring-for-Brother-LT2-B835-5-148601-001-/142759961730?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0

  5. Hello Leanne12. I found this https://m.fr.aliexpress.com/item/33003870310.html?gatewayAdapt=gloPc2fraMsite
  6. Great job! I didn't know that their was sewing machines for left handed... It needs a minimum of sewing machine knowledge their. I Wonder.... Are you a left handed handy man? I have worked 20 years ago for an Upholster in Quebec City that is left handed. He as to use sewing machines that are all made for right handed People. He was amazing to see sewing. I can't image my self as a right handed man with a sewing machine on the left side....
  7. Oh! So your a handy man. Art and picture framing. Artisan is both : art + handy work. It's good to focus on something else than business.... It keeps the mind healthy. I bought this used 3 months old Choice 441 China made. I paid $2400 from Ontario. A God's blessing because it sells here in Mtl for $4000. I sold the table that was way out to large for my shop and made a height ajustable table for it. I made a slot at the other end of the pressure bar to be able to install Singer feet on it. This machine sews more thick than my Singer 144Wsv35 (long arm) All this to tell you that this machine is a must have to sew thick with a cylinder arm sewing machine. And yes i bought the narrow feed dog and needle plate for it from the store that Brian (Rocky Aussie) worked on the design . Have'nt had time yet to install the kit on the machine. But i can give you a review on it if you would like when installed. But may be your talking about something else? Sometimes i need to sew very thick during my Upholstery projects. I sewed an 1-1/2" antique front seat edge piece full of packed hard hay (paille ou fouin) i have removed a part that releases the top thread tension. It did pushed the machine to the extreme limit hoping not to brake it.....
  8. Bonjour Mtl biker. Merci du compliment Yes i do Upholstery for living. I saw the hand bags that you did. Very good work. But tell me please, what do you do for living?
  9. Thanks. Yes it as been quite an expérience. I spended many hours on that machine but i dont regret a minute of it. Almost a terapy. I would like to keep that one until i pass away.... 1 I forget all of my problems when working on those machines. I lovvvvve sewing machines. I have 9 different machines in my small shop. I do Upholstery for living. I would like also to sew heavy leather if God permits. That's why i bought a Juki tsc 441 clone.
  10. I have contact the China choice company and they told me that it is not ajustable. So i dont know about other juki 441 clones but mine is made like that. So i have to do with it.
  11. Hello out there. I am proud to show that i was able to add a reverse on my Singer post bed machine. I love this machine because it as a post bed walking foot. It can sew at 3 stitches an inch and can sew up between 7/16 " and 1/2" with 207 nylon thread maximum. With the reverse added and the lift up table it became the most versatile machine that i have. Flat bed and post bed and can sew very close to the edge (1/4" from the left side) If it can help someone that doesnt have much space i will be glad that it goes around . If you need any help please feel free to comment or ask questions https://youtu.be/oGpobJ3w_-Q
  12. Hello Gavino Their is a Duerkopp Adler 69-373 Service Instructions Manual Direct link: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/461563/Duerkopp-Adler-Duerkopp-Adler-69-373-Service-Instructions-Manual.html Page 19 hook setting (timing) And here is a very well made video as usuall from Uwe about a Adler flat bed sewing machine(horizontal hook) . I know yours is a cylinder bed (vertical hook) but Just to learn the principles of timing a hook to needle Also this man Mtrc crane (YouTube name). He does maintenance on a Consew 206 flat bed that as a vertical hook. Just look at the first 20 seconds and jump to 45:24 for the timing needle to the hook. Hope it Will give you self-confidence for fixing your machine in futur needs. Wrong copy This one :
  13. Got it. Precious information. Appreciate it. Thanks
  14. Thanks Bob. I will try that. I thought of that one when i got facing the back of the machine but i was Wondering if it could be the next one(attachment)
  15. Do you mean the inside Shaft? From the access plate at the back close from the handwheel?
  16. Do you know how to adjust my machine so the feed dog and the middle foot (walking foot) will meet at the top of the throat plate?
  17. Do you know how to adjust my machine so the feed dog and the middle foot (walking foot) will meet at the top of the throat plate?
  18. I know getting adler parts is a voyage(travel) .... I bought parts for my Adler 068-4272 double needles walking foot. I search for a couple weeks on the net and locally. I kept looking on the net and found Kwokhing . I needed 12mm between the 2 needles. I wasnt able to remove the 5/16 " needle clamp so i mesured the diameter of the needle bar and found a pfaff needle bar + clamp from Kwokhing at half price of Ebay.ca . I Also bought feet and feed dog that i had to grind down. They have parts that are made of hardened stainless Steel. The diameter and the lenght is important so if you look at different type of Singer original or clones and look for the part # on Ebay, evernice and CHPSMS give the mesurements on one of their multiple pages But if you thinking on drilling your parts to fit one, you better go to an expert (machinist) to get it precise. If your presser bar is a full metal bar and not a tube at the other end you could cut a slot as i did on the 441.
  19. Thanks. I now understand that their are different ways to set up the entering of the needle. Do you know how to adjust my machine so the feed dog and the middle foot (walking foot) will meet at the top of the throat plate?
  20. But their is still a problem because on my 441 the feed dog meets the walking foot over the throat plate. I meant higher than the throat plate
  21. Thanks Wiz I didn't know about the reverse sync. On those monster machines. I have a 144W sv 27 with reverse that works as the Upholstery walking foot sewing machine. Walking foot even on throat plate sync with feed dog and the needle comes after. Same on my other machines.
  22. On all walking foot sewing machine that i had and the ones that i now during my 32 years of sewing (unless they invented a different machine that i dont know) the walking foot meets the feed dog at the top surface level of the needle plate Also before the needle that meets them later in the cycle. So when the walking foot gets to the feed dog, it lifts the presser foot. Mine is out of that adjustment. The needle enters the walking foot at the same time as the walking foot touches the feed dog that as pass the top surface of the needle plate.
  23. Sorry Cowboy Bob. I didn't want to interfer your sales. I Just wanted to help. Wont do it again
  24. Longer hole in the middle foot (walking foot)
