  1. 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.
  2. Hello All, I have my grandfathers Singer 7-11 sewing machine that he used for leather working. The machine is in excellent condition with no known issues. It was last used regularly around 8 years ago and been stored inside since then. Please let me know what questions you have and I'll do my best to answer them. $1200 USD - Cincinnati, Ohio Pictures below. Thanks, Chris.
  3. Hi all, I have a singer 44-81 glove machine, the one that sews and trims the leather close to the sewn edge. The Singer manual states it uses 16 x 97 Needles and I can not locate any. I’ve tried my local sources only to be told they have never heard of this size. Does anyone have a lead on needles or any assistance they could offer up. It would be much appreciated as I have this machine to make falconry gloves and I’m really looking forward to seeing what it can achieve. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hey guys. I'm so excited that I finally have my Singer 211U567B in hand. I bought it off craigslist and had it shipped for $350. Came with what's in the picture below. I also purchased a new Singer Industrial Table off Ebay for $150. I'm lucky that here in Boise, we have a gentleman who is amazing at servicing these machines. Before he comes over to tune mine up, I need to get it all set up. I have a Reliable Sewquiet 5000 mounted to the table. I've ordered a thread stand, new needle plate and screws, new right slide plate, belt, oil, bobbins and rubber machine rests and hinges. The last piece I'm missing is the oil drip pan. I have found it impossible to find a reproduction or used one online. I am a metal fabricator by hobby and have the ability to bend and weld sheet metal. I was just hoping to get some thoughts on what you've done if you've made your own. would also love to see some pictures. will upload a pic of my complete setup once I get all the parts in. Thanks in advance for your advice!
  5. hello good morning, good afternoon & evening everyone, i picked up a machine last night thinking it was a singer 29-4 based on the photos & limited info from the seller, now i'm trying to find any info possible on this sutton-landis shoe machinery sewing machine model, so i can learn to oil it, thread it, purchase more needles & bobbins. any info is greatly appreciated & thanks in advance
  6. I'm hoping this particular thread will do a couple things. Bring a better understanding of industrial machines for people that may be having trouble, educating those who are deciding to buy new or used. I do know that having a reputable dealer is worth a lot. Thanks to fellow member miaoreo for trusting me to repair her machine to a useable condition. There is a lengthy thread outlining her trials and tribulations with her newly aquired Singer 211G155. I have always been big on education and I hope to share some of what I've learned repairing machines for a living. This website is a never ending resource of information. I know my leatherwork has improved a great deal as a result. During the course of following her troubles, it was obvious to me the machine had been modified poorly and it had multiple issues. No sense beating a dead horse, so on to the issues I encountered: Top and bottom shafts were out of time. Hook timing was too far advanced. Needle bar height was off (I reset to original Singer needle and timed it using existing timing marks that you will now see. Removed original thread lubricator as bottom edge was sharp as a razor.(replaced with Singer guide) Hook compartment cover was wrong one, not enough clearance above hook (replaced with proper one) Replaced tension release pin (old one had been ground down) Replaced entire tension plate Hook was too far from needle. Needle guard was not adjusted. Tension post was bent. Tension release disk was wrong one for the machine.(replaced with proper one) Feed dog hole had been modified WAY too big (I replaced the feed dogs and throat plate to match) Replaced set screw for check spring (head was destroyed on old one) Replaced bobbin basket and tension spring. Latch opener was not adjusted correctly. Adjusted tension release correctly. There as surely some things I didn't list that I'll remember later, but you can see why a novice would have a tough time, though Mia was a real trooper! Regards, Eric
  7. Hello Everyone, First time posting here so please be understanding with terminology and what not - any help/suggestions is appreciated. I have what I believe is an early singer 16k SV - only issue is there is not a model number tag on it like most (aside from the serial number - 5603810 - 1883) - Do you agree with this or have any reason for why it could be a different model? Hopefully once this is confirmed I will be able to track down and eliminated a few of these issues: 1- When taking off the tension part from where the handwheel attached my brother broke it. I have no idea what this piece is called and have been searching high and low. It seems to have been connect by a pin to an internal spring maybe? We have not tried to remove the part stuck in the rod yet as I do not want to make a bad situation worse. I really feel even knowing the name or part number would really help. 3- I also believe that I have a jump foot and long beak shuttle - my brother and I broke the top foot and I am looking to replace this as well - any suggestions? 4- Needles, needles, needles....can anyone tell me what you would try first/what to look for? 5- Does anyone know what this little clip would be called on the slide plate? It still stays on but I would like to complete as much as possible. Again, thanks in advance and any iformation and or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
  8. Hello We have the option to buy a Singer 91k5 glove machine, it seems all in good order but has anyone out there recently purchased one and could give us an idea of prices. Also, if there are specific things to look out for. We have a large collection of industrial machines and are familiar with buying and restoring other models but this is our first venture into a post-bed "type" machine. Thanks in advance for any info.
  9. I recently bought a Singer 16-188. It was very dirty and I have replaced some parts, but it was a steal at $25.00. I am an experienced seamstress, so threading a machine isn't new to me, however, I am not sure I have this correct. I have searched and searched the internet for a diagram of how to thread this machine and I am still empty handed. When I try to sew with the machine after I have it threaded (at least my guess at threading), it won't stitch. It is connecting around the bobbin, so I don't really know what the issue is. If anyone has a diagram of how to properly thread this machine or has any idea of why it isn't stitching, I would really appreciate the input. Thank you!
  10. For various complicated reasons we are ceasing to do boot work and so we will be selling our Singer 29K60 machine. This is a long arm treadle model with the "splittable" arm ( there are similar machine out there with a one-piece arm which are virtually impossible to service). It has been drilled to accept a motor at some stage but we have used it as a treadle machine for the last 12 years or so. We are open to reasonable offers or would swap for a Singer 46K49 / Allbrook & Hashfield / Techsew 402 or similar. Posting here before posting anywhere else. This is a very nice, working machine. The table hardware is included but will need a new top making as it is for a short arm machine. By all means contact us for further information.
  11. Hello, I have recently picked up a 29k71 (electric but using the hand crank) and I got it sewing cloth, finally. Although when im sewing anything over 1-2 oz veg tanned leather it does not move the leather with the foot. With a little push of the material it feeds kinda alright but if I stop applying pressure its back to not pushing enough and thats not the way its suppose to be so I would like to know whats wrong and get it fixed. I understand that these machines are old (I think mines from '64) and parts wear. Any help would be much appreciated. take care all! happy sewing!
  12. Hi there mates, I was wondering if there is anyone who can help answer my question? I am offered a Singer 96K46 in good working order, is is suitable for leather work and worth anything? thank you very much! regards niles
  13. Have been experimenting w/ various needle bars/gears/racks, etc across several Patch machine manufacturers. Ex. An Adler 30-1 needle bar is $500+ but the Singer 29K71 needle bar is $50 and is a slightly different length. Ex. The Taking TK2971 is a decent Taiwanese machine but not as durable as Adler/Singer so we hybridize it w/ 29K71 parts. Making less expensive or better quality parts work is a necessity. W/O adjustable needle bar height, the only alternatives are to 'adjust' the 29x3 needles using the clamp or to hopefully determine and procure the correct length needles which is where I ran into the issue I need help with. Nowhere on the web, and I'm good w/ this stuff, can I find a reference chart that will tell me the lengths of commercial needles. Ordered some 332LG 120/19 suitable for Adler 30-5 and 30-7 but they were too long and didn't have enough shank to grind off the necessary amount. What I think I'm looking for (to make Singer 29K71 needle bar work in Taking TK2971) is a 50mm overall length needle. Scarf and thread hole issues aside, I'll start w/ length and go from there. I probably should have just called Glenn but I thought I'd ask everybody. Thanks! Once we get past this issue then it's on to solving the Adler 30-1 $400+ and impossible to find shuttle carrier.
  14. Hi All, I recently purchased a well used Singer 111W155 locally. Came with an old singer table, GE motor and Singer Clutch. I transplanted it into a more modern table. It was sewing fine but seemed to be skipping stitches. So i went shopping for new parts. So far i replaced the Timing belt (Was not broken but seemed about to), Hook (The basket was loose), New Tension Disk set, new bobbins, new needles. I cleaned it and lubricated it, Timed it and it is still skipping stitches. I tried everything... new needles, different thread different material and feed speed and still no luck. It seems to work fine for a while then every once in a while, it skips a stitch, sometimes 2 or 3 then goes back to normal. This can happen consistently on test pieces with about 3 inches of stitch so its pretty bad. The machine is quite worn and the feed dogs and throat plate seems worn also. The foot is a narrow foot set and also seems to be worn. I suspect what is happening is that the hook is able to get the loop most of the time but due to the slop in the foot or dogs or throat plate, the needle deflects and its just enough to miss that loop. I keep playing with the hook adjustment to get it close to the needle scarf and it seems every time i look at it, its in a different position (Either too far or touching the needle). I thought about the worst, too much wear in the needle bar bushings or even worst a bent needle bar but im really thinking it needs new feet, a new throat plate and feed dog. Before i drive myself crazy and spend more money on parts, can anyone think of what i missed? Thank you!!!! Andre
  15. Wondering if anyone has an old damaged machine they’d be willing to sell some parts from, or could direct me towards a source for parts. I’ve circled the two parts from the manual attached. I’m specifially looking for the pulley lock nut #17 and the Segment ring #19 I do also need a connection belt but I have found these online.
  16. I came across this article today, and thought it might be of some interest here, particularly for those old iron fans. It covers how the first sewing machines came about, how Singer came to dominate the market, and some of the social changes they brought about. https://www.bbc.com/news/business-50673541 Enjoy! - Bill
  17. I see many requests for manuals for Singer Industrial Machines. Some have gone unanswered, and some are subject to long and tedious discussion with either no satisfactory answer, or an answer hidden deeply away. Of course, there are also plenty which have been answered quickly and succinctly. By doing some research and seeking out some of those hidden answers and others less hidden, I think I have found all of those that have been asked for, as well as many others. I am not an expert, and don't claim that this is an extensive list, but it is a pretty good start for those trying to find the manuals, parts lists and service manuals. The list I have attached starts with a few of the sources which are very helpful. All of the manuals listed are free, and I suspect the list owners would appreciate it if you can send them any manuals that they are missing. So before you pay for a manual, check these lists first. I hope this is a quick answer for many of your questions about manuals. I would really appreciate any additions to this list - please add links in your responses. Singer Industrial Manuals –.pdf

  19. Attention gearheads into old Singer sewing machines. I know that most of you are into old industrials, but on the off chance someone is into an old domestic as a winter project to sew bag or wallet linings, here's one: I have a 1940 Singer 15-91 (potted motor) for parts or restoration. I got it to make bags. I never made it that far. The previous owner, as it turns out, put oil where it didn't belong and didn't tell me, so when I ran it for the first time, the wires leading to the motor failed. It's my understanding that this can be fixed, but the sewing machine hospital closest to me doesn't know how to fix it, and I lost interest in playing with it, as I discovered an industrial that will do what I was aiming to do in the first place. The parts are all there. I still have the presser feet, etc. that it came with. $20 bucks to take this thing off of my hands in Chesapeake Va. It's worth it just for the pretty parts and the presser feet. If you're interested and want pictures, PM me with your email address and we'll go from there, as the picture thing here on the site doesn't want to play nicely with me today .
  20. Hi there, i have recently got got my hands on a singer class 7-5 with no information on it and Only part of the manual. I have managed to get it running and sewing but the bottom thread appears too tight in the stitches and I cannot find a tension screw on or around the bobbin casing to loosen it? Could anyone advise on this ? Machine works beautifully otherwise Thanks in advance
  21. Newbie here. I have a Singer 211g266 which I can't seem to get the stitchlength to be longer than 4-5mm. Anyone can point me in the right directions to adjust it? Have read the manual available on supsew. Adjusted the needle bar rock frame and the synchronous feeding. Hook timing seems right, timing belt is aligned. Just read about the adjustment of the eccentrics, does that alter the stitchlength.? Thanks in advance

  23. Hi, new here and new to leather working and heavy machines, minus my old singer 96k. (But been working as seamstress at menswear shop 11years so have a general knowledge of sewing) I have just bought a second hand singer 45k89 but it only came with the one foot. I am wondering if anyone can help me find more feet and possibly a bobbin winder that attaches to the machine body (not the table, if that makes any sense) I have asked a company called college sewing online but they have ignored my message and I’ve scoured eBay and I’m only finding bobbins and cases. So thought I’d ask a forum of people who know! Thanks in advance any help is much appreciated!
