Juki 1341 Places to Oil

Recommended Posts

This is my first post on the forum.  I have tried to read all the rules, and I have searched the topic "Juki 1341 oiling points."  If I have been looking in the right places on this site, I do not think I have located what I need.  So I need help, please.  I just purchased a new SEWPRO 1341 cylinder arm machine. It is a clone of the Juki 1341. Neither the manual that came with my machine, nor the Juki 1341 manual that my dealer emailed to me have good information about ***where*** to oil the machine. There are some spots (holes) on the machine that have red paint on them, and I assume these are key places to drop oil. However, the manual for my previous cylinder arm machine (an Artisan 335 B BT) indicated several more places than shown by red marked holes that should be oiled. I have several vintage Singer domestic machines and know all the places that should be oiled or greased, and I can get at those places without difficulty because I have original manuals and adjuster's guides for them. I'm a little afraid to take off any covers to look at or get to the interior of this new SEWPRO 1341 machine. If I mess something up, it's a 3 1/2 hour drive to my dealer for any repair. The manual I have for my new SEWPRO 1341 and the Juki 1341 manual are not much help. Can anyone here provide pictures - - perhaps with arrows pointing to places - - that should be oiled on my SEWPRO 1341?  If it isn't already obvious from my post, I should tell you that I am pretty new to using an industrial machine and have only made a few handbags and backpacks with leather.  I want to take good care of this machine because it's probably the only heavy duty machine I'll ever have.  I'm a female sewer, slightly past retirement age, in north central, Pennsylvania, and my sewing training came from my mother who taught home economics for 34 years.

@softpaws2, Were you able to download the manual I posted? Did it give you the information you were looking for?

Thank you SO MUCH!!!  This Juki manual is different from the one my dealer sent to me.  The manual you posted for me is EXACTLY what I needed to locate the places that need to be oiled.  I have downloaded the manual for future use and reference.

I'm sorry it took so long to get back to let you know that you're a lifesaver.

softpaws2, I'm glad that manual had the information you were looking for. It is also good that you know the importance of proper lubrication with your new machine. I have a Juki 1341 that I like very much. I am still looking for a binder for this machine to bind the inside seams of bags. I'll post on here once I get it resolved.

I would like to see some of the items you sew on your machine when you get it all sorted out.
