I have a Singer 31-15. Had it sewing beautifully with #92 thread. Switched to #69 & the bobbin thread is looping BADLY. I noticed that after a couple of stitches, the thread is jumping out of the tension discs. I've tried adjusting the tension on the discs, thread still jumps out. It seems as if it needs more tension before the discs to keep it between the discs. I appreciate any suggestions you experienced folk have, however, I'm not a sewing machine repair person, or by any standard an expert, so simple answers will be the most helpful. I'm not up on the technical terminology. Thanks!
Icertainlywas posted a topic in Leather Sewing MachinesAttached is a document with Notes on Timing a Consew 229 post base industrial sewing machine, including details about what goes wrong when the thread piles up above the needle, or when there's looping below the fabric that can't be solved by ordinary tension adjustments. It's my version of notes about what is not already in the manual for the machine, and what a novice might want to know when venturing into this job. This is written for an absolute beginner, in what I hope will be viewed as very simple language. If any person has this machine and cannot locate the manual, try sending me a note at radavich at moscow.com, and I'll try to locate my source or will copy and mail to you.
