You don't say if it is a clutch motor or a servo motor. They answer to your question is yes you can slow it down by either motor (usually a knob or switch) and by pulley. If you don't have a servo motor I would strongly urge you got contact Cobra Steve at leather sewing machine company (google it) Tell him you want one of the smart servo motors with needle position-er (needle up and down automatically)
His smart servo motors are also modified so they work very similar to home sewing machines... with graduated speed based on how hard you press the pedal.

But if you must and want to stick with a clutch motor... you might try this fellow's hack.

I am looking for a diagram of how to thread a Consew 206RB. The manual is very unclear to me. I have tried going over the pin on the right side of the tension disks and not going over it. Which is...

Don't know this machine but I would guess to go over it if the thread then goes down to the needle so you get a straight line down to sewing needle.

I have a Consew 206RB and it feeds backwords. How can I fix this?

I have a Consew 206RB-1 , if I had This problem I would think the stitch length setting or the downward pressure of the upper walking foot is wrong.

If you set the stitch length to less than 0 it would be in reverse and feed backward.

Hi, I just acquired a consew 206RB machine but not the manual. It starts very fast so,I'd like to know if it has a speed control. Thanks

I slowed mine down by replacing the pulley on the head with a larger pulley that I bought at the local hardware store. All of the internal parts slowed down by the same amount so after 20 years it still works fine.

I used a 6 inch pulley (about $10.00) with a 1/2 inch center hole. Finding the right size of drive belt was the hardest part of the whole operation.

There are only two screws that hold that pulley on. One of them is a set screw very near the small center hole that stops the pulley from spinning on the drive shaft.

Have a Consew 206RB-1. Seems within the span of a few hours today that whenever I'm turning while sewing any material, it will drop a stitch. When sewing in a straight line, it's perfectly fine. Can't seem...

It is probably because you need to move slower when moving the material around, as otherwise the thread beneath will just stretch over and make a new stitch. just slow down loads and should work! this probably isnt the right answer but hope i may of helped! :)

You need someone to do it because you have to get the motor and the belt in the correct place, you can't do it by instructions over the web
