Singer 95-1 sewing machine

I see I may have posted in the wrong category. I have a Singer 95-1 sewing machine, (industrial) The timing belt has broken and I am currently searching for the part or someone to make it. We may try to make ourselves. The leather belt is tricky. We can't find the join and wonder if it may have been shaved on each end and then glued together somehow. Does anyone have any other ideas? If we figure it out we will let everyone know on our end. Terrytergould@gmail.com

Hello there, loosen your top thread tension,if it looping on top of the material the tension is way too tight, you will also find changing the thread size to smaller thread, the top tension will also reduce,depending on application a good size thread to use is 25 grade,bobbin tension should have just a slight amount of drag as the top thread and bottom work against each other when sewing.

When you say 'Vintage'-- how old are we talking about?

Please describe the belt...

Is this an old Pedal (or platform that you rock your feet, to make the drive pulley go around)
Is it a 'pedal' powered machine?-- one with a round leather belt?

If it is the latter--
Is that belt all dried out?-- or is it still supple and still providing a good surface to grip the grooves of the 2 pulleys?

Tell us more-- maybe we can help.

SOURCE: How to install leather belt

The belt is a round leather belt and is joined by a wire staple. It passes over the pulley on the hand wheel, down through the slot in the table and a slotted plate goes into the table slot with the belt in the plate slot. The belt is than placed against the big pulley, turn the pulley and a lip on the pulley will pick up the belt and feed it into the groove of the pulley - that's it! (If the belt is too long, cut it to the correct length, pierce a new hole in it and feed the staple into the hole).

What can you do to stop squeaking when I'm winding bobbin


Spray wherever the squeak is coming from with a dry silicone lubricant called 'Jigaloo' or WD40 Dry Silicone Lubricant. It is also great for sliding windows.

What year is my singer sewing machine? AH251729? how do I purchase parts for it, like the zig zag attachment?


The Singer vintage machine site indicates that the AH251729 was made in 1947 in Elizabeth, NJ. For details see http://www.singermachines.co.uk/faq/tell-sewing-machine-age-from-two-letter-serial-number/ .

Look on the front of your sewing machine and locate the model number of the machine. Go to http://www.singerco.com/support/replacement-parts-chart and locate your model number. (Use the drop down menu and locate the group. Press Go and then find the pdf with the correct model parts list.) You can look up the exact part number and order them from the Singer Service Center online.

Alternatively, you may be able to find them at any Singer Authorized retailer. Just look at your machine and determine the type of shank that connects foot to the machine. (High Shank and Slant are common Singer foot designs on older machines.) Get a zigzag foot for Singer machines with that design. (If they don't have that, you can probably get a current foot and an adapter. We got an overedge foot and the high slant foot adapter for my Singer sewing machine (purchased in 1969) in the 1980s.)

I hope this helps.

I have a vintage manual singer sewing machine and would like to view a manual


Do you have a model number on the Singer machine? Many Singer sewing machine manuals are available here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Enter the model number and click search. For example, the manual for the Singer 27 (made in ~1911) and 28 is here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/268_27_28.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have a Singer 478 sewing machine and need to replace the top gear on the verticle shaft. Is there a repair manual for doing this. There was not category expert on this so please direct to the correct...


This is an easy fix. a lot disassembly required, you will need to gain access through the belt side to the singer cover plate,four clips hold it on from the back side. Once that is off, two screw hold small access plate which is under the letters Sin, remove plate, rotate shaft to access screw through opening which holds Vertical Top Shaft Gear, Singer # 155819 in place. Remove bottom cover, locate belt pulleys (2), remove cam tensioner, with a hex wrench remove pulleys, this makes it easier to remove lower belt. with a long thin, blade screwdriver, loosen screw on gear (through small access cover), slide shaft downward Rand R gear, reverse process, done. Be sure you document removal, take pictures, mark references with marking pen.This makes reassembly easy. I just replaced mine, I am handy but not an expert, hope this helps you...

Hi
Try the Singer website. http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html
Just type in 9015, do not include the letter T and click on search.
A list appears on the next page and a free download is available.
I'm not sure what your machine looks like as you have posted this in vacuums!
I hope it's the right manual for your machine.

Singer simaco 95-1 timing belt


I can't seem to get this thing posted. I have the same problem and have started contacting leather craftsmen to see if someone can fabricate the belt. We can't find the join and wonder if each end was shaved down and then overlayed and glued somehow to keep it all the same thickness. Let me know if you come up with anything.  Terry tergould@gmail.com
