Hi there, First post so apologies if I do something wrong. I'll be brief to save an essay but I can provide more info if people need. MACHINE: 132k10 (Scottish made '42) NEEDLES: 23, 26 (and a smaller than 23, not sure off the top of my head) THREADS: 20s, 10s, 8s (138, 277, 346) ISSUE(S): 1. Hook is defecting needle in normal operation. Needle is installed correctly. 2. Thread catches between the bobbin case and retention arm/spring (name?). Less noticeable with thinner thread but is audible and noticeable with thicker stuff. Not sure if this is normal for tensioning but seems to create a fair bit. 3. Occasionally a large loop of top thread is created that actually loops over the outer hook body, I'm guessing this is where the big lock ups are occurring. I guess that sometimes it slips off and carries on sewing and others it's jams. The machine appears to be in time and tensioned correctly (minus some very fine tuning). It will sew, and sew a pretty stitch but then it goes wrong, randomly. It makes a hollow "clunk". Vaguely similar to noise if you rattled the bobbin case inside the hook. This happens on the upstroke at the same time the tension becomes almost solid from the upper thread. Resulting in a mess on the backside. Chop and reset, sews fine again until...repeat above. It seems to happen regardless but more frequently if I cross over stitching and/or raise the presser to foot to rotate the work (needle in the BDC position). Threading and tension is right to my knowledge but I'm open to scrutiny on that. I've tried with the single and double wrap on the main tension (as per a YouTube video). Runs better with the double. This was the short version, sorry.
Fully functional. Stitches flawlessly. Treadle replaced with clutched motor that runs fantastic. Bobbin and shuttle included. No missing parts. Has had a repair on top a long time ago. More photos available. I have owned it and been using it since around 2007 or 2008.Time to upgrade as business has improved. Seems that they go for around $1000 in less condition than this one. So, I'd like $1450 considering the condition and the motor but certainly will negotiate. Located in NW Wyoming. Reach me at email@example.com
Hi Folks, I hate to have to be writing this at the moment, but is anyone interested in purchasing a basically brand new Techsew 2700 Light to Medium Duty Cylinder Machine? I bought this through Ron up at Raphael with every intention to go full throttle into some leather/wax canvas daybags to compliment my other sewing business (ultralight sleeping bags), but I am just not finding the time, nor see it happening any time in the near future. I basically did some test stitching on scraps, hadn't even built a bag with it yet so I would consider this basically brand new. It comes with: Servo motor and optional speed reducer, swing down roller guide, flat table attachment, boxes of 100 needles (sizes: 24, 22,18) 8 spools of Techsew bonded nylon thread (4 black, 4 white, size 138, 69 of each), zipper foot and 6 extra bobbins. I have this on craigslist for $1800 at the moment. If you are willing to come and pick it up, I am willing to entertain reasonable offers. If you have any questions or need other pictures I am happy to send, just let me know.
