Can you convert an Adler 67 to a large bobbin Adler 167 ?

Recommended Posts

Anybody done an Adler conversion from 67 to 167? Is just a bobbin case, hook and cap all that is needed? Thank you.

Increasing the diameter of the bobbin case will require a matching longer take-up lever and all that it entails. The hook saddle or its housing may need to be milled out for more clearance. Similar discussions are currently under way about other machines. I have a modified Singer walking foot machine that now uses double capacity Juki U bobbins and a lot of parts and work went into the conversion (done by the dealer).
