My 145w204 had been sitting since the 70’s when I purchased it a couple weeks ago. It had no rust, but was covered in decades of warehouse storage, spiders, and varnished oil. Machine wasn’t seized, but very close to it. Mainly old oil that had turned to glue. Got it tore down and polished everything clean and smooth. Stitched like a champ. Belt came in and I swapped out the old dry rotted one. Still worked, but not for long. So I put the new belt on exactly like the manual calls for, and I’ve done it 50 more times to be sure. Long story short, everything looks perfect, hooks to needle, runs smooth and quiet, my problem, the feed dogs will not keep time with the needle. At zero feed yes, they line up, start adding stitch length and forget about. Almost seems like something is 180 degrees off. I did not disassemble anything on the eccentrics, just clean and oil. I did check for loose bolts but all was good. So that’s the the gig, my feed dogs and needles won’t time, but everything else looks good. Any advice, hints, or means to a solution would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I have a consew 118 and I am having trouble with getting it to sew. When I got it the needle bar was striking the foot so I did a rough adjustment. When I first tried to sew it worked for about six inches then it started to jam. I bought a servo motor for it to make it run more manageable. Before I install it I have been trying to readjust the needle bar height and cycle it by hand. I can't seem to get it to sew again. There doesn't appear to be any way to adjust the hook timing so I'm not sure what to do.
