  1. I have just purchased a Juki DU-1181-N industrial sewing machine from Meissner Sewing in Sacramento. I have replaced the servo motor that it came with and replaced it with another that I already had. I am offering it for sale for $100 plus freight. Brand new. FSM-550 Servo Motor, POW 550W, 110V. RPM 0-3300 See all three photos here:

    Sewing Table - Custom Setup

    Long story, but here's the quasi short version ... Always been a hobby craftsman, wood work, welding and metal fabrication, electrical, plumbing, ranch construction, tractors, and a little sewing on the side ... etc. etc. I grew weary with a cheap Brother machine after repair and tuned ups, moved onto Janome HD1000. Happy with it, except for anything heavy (thread and/or fabric). So I purchased a Juki LU-563 with a new servo, bobbin winder, foot pedal, knee lifter, thread stand, led lighting, and various storage add-ons. Using scrap steel (1x3 schedule 40 structural tube) I had in my shop, I've fabricated a really stout table frame. I'm refinishing a 300 lb sold wood door as the table top (approximately 3' x 7'). I plan to end up with a pretty large and yet semi mobile (frame has casters) industrial sewing set up. I'm at the stage now to start assembling the technical stuff and I have a few questions you MIGHT be able to help with. CUT OUT - Does anyone know where I could find a cutout pattern for the table top? Ideally something specific to Juki 563, but if not then even something generic would be a great starting point. VIBRATION - My set up will end up weighing 400+ lbs and should be very stable, but I still have concerns about shake/rattle/vibration. I plan to set up the table on top of a 1/2" dense rubber floor (commercial gym flooring) and I am also using cut pieces of the same rubber mat between the wood table top and the steel framing, again to reduce vibration transfer. Any thoughts, is this overkill as usual? V-BELT LENGTH - What the heck is the standard/typical length V-belt most commonly used for a servo-juki set up like this? I figured there would be a couple of standard sizes, but found there are seemingly infinite variations! TOP FINISH - Table top finished with HD "heavy traffic" gloss urethane? Any thoughts on how this will serve the sewing purpose? My thought is the gloss will make moving fabric around much easier and a prefer the natural wood look over anything painted, especially when the wood looks great already! 110 OR 220 WIRING - new servo is 110 wired, but I know with my table saw I had it rewired to 220v and it has been more reliable and significantly more powerful. Anyone had a new/modern servo set up for 220v? HEAD LOCATION - I was planning to mount the machine toward the lower right hand corner of this larger table top, leaving more space on the left for fabric maneuvering but thinking about it last night, I started thinking that right in the middle might give me even more flexibility. What am I missing here? Apologies for asking so many questions all at once, my top question right now is really the cutout pattern (#1) but the others are semi-dangerous ideas bouncing around in my head! LOL PS ... I will post some pictures of the table, motor and head when I get a chance. That might help your understanding too.
  3. I'm in need of a 'slow' sewingmachine for precision and control stitching and found a good deal now. The advertiser send me this photo of the motor; it's a clutch motor, he called it a 'leather motor' since it goes at about 1425 r.p.m. I have no experience with motors/electronics and could use some advice regarding this offer, or deciding to upgrade to a servo. I made the agreement that I can either buy the machine without the motor (and order a servo elsewhere) or buy it with, but it will have an impact on my budget. Will this motor be slow enough for my needs? I would like it to go stitch by stitch at times, I'm not at all interested in 'fast' options. Also I prefer the machine to be quiet, which I know a clutch is not. What is the aprox. value of this clutch motor (without machine)? Thanks !
  4. Hi everyone new here and just became a proud owner of a consew 206! i quickly found out that it vibrates my entire apartment though, which isn’t great for neighbors. Im wondering if there are any servo motors with speed variability in the $100 range that would serve me well. Is that cheap not worth doing, are they fine, is $200 night-and-day. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
  5. I've got a few different servo motors from the cheaper end of what's commonly available. However, as impressive as most of them may be, and as perfectly fine for garment machines as I'm sure they are, they all seem to be lacking something or several things, for my purposes. Mostly these are a limited pedal speed range and/or an excessive starting speed. I understand that these are pretty much par for the course with cheap servo motors. I've gone down the speed reducing pulley route before and the results are impressive. However I want to be able to use a needle positioner/synchroniser and would prefer to not have the bulk under the table. It doesn't help that I am in the UK so a lot of options are simply not options (we use 230ish volts @ 50Hz mains). The Ho Hsing G60 servo has been recommended by several posters on here as having good low-speed performance. At £200ish including tax and shipping it's nearly double what the cheapest servos cost and the synchoniser is extra so I'm a little hesitant about pressing the trigger until I'm fairly convinced it's the right option. Specifically I'm looking to power my Seiko LCW-8 (very similar to the Consew 226) and want to be able to run it from under 100SPM to over 1000SPM without adjusting any settings (a wide pedal range with lots of discrete steps along the slope). (Another thing other than price I'm not too keen on with the G60 is that it's a 2-button interface. I find them tricky to navigate, and would it really kill the manufacturers to put on a speed knob and a few toggle switches for commonly changed settings? I'd love a nice robust 3-way toggle for the synchroniser, and maybe a "safety" that disables the motor for making adjustments around the needle without fear of putting a Schmetz #160 through my finger without having to turn the power off? But I digress...) Am I asking too much for a bottom-end servo motor? Is there a better option, hopefully for fewer beer tokens? I really don't think I could stretch to an Efka... Should I just give in and build my own PLC-controlled direct-drive stepper setup?
  6. hey folks, I have looked at most of the treads on servo motors, most thread are a few years old. Just wondering what people are currently recommending for servo motors. I am looking for good torque at lower speeds for thicker leather. I will be sewing layers 1/2 thick, but will also need to sew thinner leather. Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated. thanks
  7. Hello, everyone! I recently bought myself a Pfaff 345 cylinder bed industrial sewing machine. I would like to swap the fast 3F clutch motor with a more controllable servo motor. I live in Europe (Slovenia) and as far as I know I can't get my hands on a Family sew or Hightex motor here. My options are 750W Jack servo motors and Zoje servo motors (although not much is written about them on the internet), maybe 550W Sailrite Workhorse or any other good quality motor brand I am not familiar with. I would appreciate any advice on which servo motor to buy. My budget is in 200-300€ range. I mostly do leather bags, purses, belts, wallets from veg-tan (not more than 6mm/0.3 in thick) and crome-tanned leather. Kind regards, Gregor
  8. Hello, I need a sewing machine and I would prefer to buy a vintage industrial (or near-industrial) model over the Sailrite LSZ, which is the obvious option for a new machine. I'll be doing mostly marine canvas, upholstery and sail repair, not as much with leather but you guys seem to be the experts on this class of machine... and I will no doubt be doing some leather work as well. I need it to have a zig zag stitch. It does not need to be portable. Quiet operation, good control and simplicity/longevity are the things I value most. I would plan to replace any clutch motor with a servo motor like the Consew CSW100. I think the Consew 99 or 199 or the Pfaff 138 could fit the bill. I'm sure there are a number of other models that I should consider as well. What other vintage models and brands should I be on the lookout for? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Jack

    Servo motor

    I am new to the site and have been enjoying reading and researching. You folks are so knowledgeable and talented! I recently purchased a great industrial which has all the features I wanted..except the speed demon clutch motor. Does anyone have a recommendation as to where to order a good Servo from in Canada? And what are you all doing with the old swapped out clutch motors...does anyone want them anymore? Looking forward to your comments
  10. Does anyone know a source for a small motor pulley that will fit a Rex 550w Servo? I recently installed Rex servos on a Consew 226 and a Consew 206RB-1, and the new motors came with 3" pulleys. As expected, they ran a little faster than I wanted so I went shopping for some smaller motor pulleys. Techsew sent me a 45mm O.D. pulley that they said would fit, but it had a 3/4" shaft. My Rex servos have a 5/8" shaft size. All of the 1-1/2" to 1-3/4" pulleys I can find have 3/4" bores. I did find 1-3/4" x 5/8" standard Chicago Pulleys at the hardware store, but they needed to have the set screw "knuckles" ground off before they would fit against the motor. These actually work pretty well, but it would be nice to have a source for a direct bolt-on part. Also, the Chicago pulley is a tad too wide for a 3/8" V belt. Another idea that came to mind is adding a bushing to make a 3/4" bore pulley fit the 5/8" shaft. Then you would have to cut a slot in the bushing to allow the woodruff key be inserted (or perhaps use a set screw instead). Any easy answers out there? I would love to find a 38mm O.D. pulley that fit a 5/8" shaft. Thanks so much.
  11. Hi all, I have a consew 226R and I'm ready to put a servo motor on it for more control. My problem is that most of the recommended motors on leather forums, like the Reliable motors (which seem reasonable for well under $200au), are all for sale overseas or on ebay. Whilst some of them look like they have the voltage option for Australia, which is 220v, I can't tell if they would then have an Australian plug. The motors that are for sale from Australian vendors all look extremely expensive to me by comparison, around $400au. I'd really appreciate any info from fellow Aussie leather workers who have been down this path. And from anyone else too of course, if you have seen this type of question before. Regards, Carrie.

    Servo Recommendations

    Hi guys- i need some recommendations on a servo motor for my DA 269-373. I have an Enduro Pro 5000rpm on my Consew 206rb, along with a speed reducer. It's a 110v motor, and I'd really like to do something similar on my other machine as well. However, I'm having trouble locating another motor like the one I currently have, so I'm wondering if anyone would recommend others. Or at least which ones to stay away from. I see several models with brakes (as far as I know) floating around eBay for around $100-130, but I'm not sure what to make of them. I also see several that look smaller and have a digital control on the control box that is separate from the motor itself (Iike the Consew CSM1000). Any help on this would be appreciated. Thanks!
  13. Hi there, I have a flatbed heavy-duty Sailrite LSZ-1 that I've been playing with and I've found the speed very difficult to control solely by the foot pedal. Looking at videos on youtube, I learned that Servo motors can be bought to retrofit old sewing machines, I wonder if I can do the same with the Sailrite LSZ-1. How would I go about this to figure out if it is possible? The motor on this LSZ-1 is attached to the sewing machine. Another idea I read somewhere is to add a voltage regulator kinda thing that can more precisely control the speed compared to using a foot idea how to do this though please help...thank you all!
  14. I'm selling my Cobra NP-4 skiver with servo motor, including table with wheels for $1,000 or best offer. I would keep it but unfortunately, I need to make room in my already-too-small apartment for the upcoming arrival of our first son. I've only used the skiver 3 or 4 times, for a total of less than 1-2 hours, so it's practically new and pretty quiet. I have the original box it came in as well. Pickup only in San Francisco.
  15. Hello Everyone! My father surprised me with giving me his old Consew 230. He makes boots for a living and used this machine for sewing leather. Primarily for the welts and piping and he figured it would be good for my endeavors to sew lightweight leather purses and organizers as it can sew the thickness I need and up to 138 thread. Oh, how I wanted a 206RB, but the 230 does now hold sentimental value.... So Dad came over and we set it up....with a clutch motor and the thing is in bad shape because it just about goes into warp speed stitching and the foot pedal is a hot mess! I release my foot and it just keeps a going....and eventually slows on it own. Ummmmm, this isn't really good for me! Plus, when we fired the ol' girl up, it sounded like I started up a starship :-). So loud!!!! Ok, I have been sewing for 30 years - fabric, that is...and I am used to my home machine. I have total control of how slow or fast I sew....and the pedal is very responsive! I am gonna be honest, I need a machine that runs SLOW - so I can keep up with it for right now...Maybe one day I can sew fast but certainly not now!!! I see stuff about controller, needle position/sync, servo motors and reducers. Best I can reckon, I would LOVE a servo motor and may well need a reducer to sew at a turtle pace, but what is this controller and needle position/sync? And of all of these things, what products would you recommend and from whom? BTW, I live in Florida. Thank you soo much! MG And come to think of it, such a sad thing that a 78 year old man could handle this Consew 230 going faster than the speed of light, but his kid daughter is having some serious issues with it!!! :-)

    Servo Motor

    New in the box. I'm not interested in going through ALL this stuff I got or trying to sell it, but I will let this go before i move. I bought this over a year ago, but never took it out of the box. $100 + actual shipping (or pick it up, just as good)

    Juki LU-563

    A few months ago, I purchased a used Juki LU-563 from a reputable sewing machine seller in Atlanta, GA. The sewing machine, Consew analog servo motor, and table are all in great working order. There are plenty of online resources that helped me learn the machine and get started. After getting the hang of it (this is my first sewing machine experience ever), I'm not sure that it's the right fit for the products I'm currently making. Maybe another time. In the meantime, I need to recoup the expense and recover some floor space. I'm asking $1,000 for the head, table and servo motor. I'll update the post with some more pics next time I'm at the shop. Please let me know if you have any questions. I would prefer to sell the head/motor/table together, but that's negotiable. I would also prefer not to ship. I do frequently drive from Atlanta to Greensboro, so I could do a meetup/delivery within a reasonable radius of those two cities and that route. Thanks! Bill
  18. I'm a newbie to Industrial sewing machines and need to slow the brute down. I have just fitted a Jack JK 563A Motor to my Brother LS2 B837 and even at the slowest speed it is running to quickly. Is it possible to fit a smaller pulley to the motor and what is the size of the shaft? Any advice would be most welcome. Cheers Richard
  19. My Adler 205-374 is almost repaired and ready for primetime, but as a novice to sewing machines I cannot control the clutch motor to obtain a slow rate of stitching. I am going to buy a servo and reducer pulley to slow this Beast down, but can only afford to get one at a time. So, new servo with no reducer pulley, or use the existing clutch motor with a reducer pulley? Eventually I will purchase both, but right now I can only spring for one or the other. What are your observations?
  20. I managed to get a new Pfaff 335 straight from the factory, with a servo motor, couldn't be happier, sews like a beast. But there's two issues. First one is my lack of experience. The manual says I shouldn't be using a needle larger than 69 (or 100 metric) but I doubt it's anything more than a recommendation since the machine can sew through 1cm of vegtan easy. I tried the 69 polyester thread but when I sew 10oz leather straps and belts it's just too thin to look nice. So I took a look at some guides and saw that for that particular oz. (3-4mm) I should use thread size 138-277. Is it safe to use on my machine? Or in other words, would you use any needle you can properly mount or just follow the manual and stick to 69? Saw the same Pfaff 335 in Hermes video and they used at least 2x thicker thread on their watch strap... Anyway, more important issue, my servo. I always read the manual so I'm certain I've used it correctly. Problem is, when I choose the program that should be the slowest one the machine runs like crazy. So I thought maybe it's not the motor, maybe the pedal is too sensitive when it comes to switching between the 'programmed' and 'full speed' modes (press lightly for the former, press all the way for latter). So I always end up sewing by pressing and lifting my foot completely, which is obviously annoying and wrong. Is there a guide for adjusting the pedal sensitivity or something else that might help?
  21. I have a Cobra Class 18 with a speed reducer and Brushless Digital Servo Motor on it. I have sewn on it for a year, now and feel that I am ready to speed up the motor but cannot remember the sequence to program the motor to run faster. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks in advance. READ MY ANSWER IN THE POST BELOW. HOW TO PROGRAM THE SPEED ON THE DIGITAL SERVO MOTOR.

    Servo Motor Advice

    Hi Everyone So I purchased a Typical DC 20665 heavy duty machine yesterday. The machine really performs great and it is stitching perfectly. The only thing I need some help on is in regards to the motor. At the dealer they had the machine setup with a clutch motor (model: DOL12L, 1/2 HP 4P) which works well. I do actually want to servo motor for the control and energy saving as electricity in South Africa is quite expensive. They then installed a servo motor which I am not sure of the brand but on the label it said 300W - 700W if I remember correctly. With the servo motor the machine would start the first stitch through the really thick layers of leather, so they had to hand crank the first stitch. Due to this they recommended I keep the clutch motor. I unfortunately did not have the time or the patience to stand there and have a long conversation about the whole motor issue so I decided to go the the clutch motor. Now I am thinking that maybe they could have fitted a more powerful servo motor, but I have no idea what the difference is between all the servo motors. Obviously I can call them tomorrow and ask to change the motor for a servo, but what do I actually ask for? Is there a wattage rating or something that I need to look out for? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Machine specs: EUROPE: CHINA:

    Trouble With Nick-O Servo Motor

    I'm having trouble adjusting the speed on my servo motor I got with my Juki-Lu563. It's a Nick-O Sew model #NKS-4000. [imgur]( I can't find a manual for this and Nick-O customer service doesn't seem to have much knowledge of the issue. When I turn it on, the display just reads zeros and then the exterior diodes (idk what they're called) create a rotating circle going clockwise. The servo works, but I can't adjust the speed. pushing the arrows does nothing. When I got the servo, it didn't have a fuse, so I had to replace it, but other than that it seems fine. I would appreciate any help! Thanks,
  24. My 441 clone has an old Ho-Hsing HVP-58 motor on it that I pulled off of another machine. It's got plenty of power, needle positioning, and what seemed like a useful range of adjustments to pickup speed etc. The problem with it is that its low speed setting is still 200spm, which is a bit too fast for me. "No problem!" thinks me, "I'll just put a smaller pulley on it". No such luck. I replaced the 100mm pulley with a 50mm pulley, got a new belt to go between the motor and speed reducer, and tried it out. It runs at exactly the same SPM. The problem is that it's too clever for me. It's not getting its rotational speed from the motor, it's getting it from the NPS unit on the shaft on the machine. In addition to the usual needle-up and down position sense wheels, it also has a speed sensor wheel so the net effect of putting the smaller pulley on is that the machine runs at exactly the same speed but the motor is whirring away much faster. *sigh*. Time to save up for a dumber motor.
  25. I have an old Singer 31k15 Machine that was handed down to me from my grandmother. The machine is is good condition and still sews very well. However the clutch motor in it moves way to fast for detailed leather sewing. I'd like to pick up a servo motor for it, but I can't seem to find any solid info on which I should pick up. I've looked at the Techsew 550 motors, but am not sure how well they'll mate up to the machine I have. Anyone have any recommended motors they've used on the 31k15's, including where to get them. What modifications did you have to make to install it? I'm using fairly thick leathers so I'll need something with decent power, and I'd prefer something that can run very slowly with high tq. Any input would be appreciated! Josh
