Question about Vacuums
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.

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).
