Question about Sewing Machines
Hello, I hope that you can help me. First of all, Please forgive me--I am totally out of my element here and don't have a clue as you will see as you read on.
I purchased a used Pfaff industrial embroidery machine--it has 2 heads and is a very large and heavy machine (took 4 muscular men to load and unload and it was difficult for them). There is capability for 7 different colors on each head. I don't know a model number (or even where to look). S.N.#94 087..
I have 2 manuals:
The first says ''Operating Instructions;Colour-Change-Cylinder;Embroidery machine; F4000/F5000''. It deals with how to enter things into the large computer keyboard.
I don't have anything that shows how to set up the machine or thread the needles etc.
The Second manual says: ''Monogram;Examples for Input for Colour-Change-Machines:Edition 1994; Fortron''.It also appears to deal with the computer keyboard and placement and alignment of the hoops etc.
The person I purchased it from never actually used it. He bought it with plans to but never got around to doing it. It was in perfect running condition when he bought it. It sat in his work shop for a couple of years and he decided he would never use it. So he can't tell me anything.
I managed to get all the cables hooked up to the main computer. When I went to plug the machine into the electrical outlet, the male end of the cord from the machine had one round probe and 2 flat probes that run horizonal rather than vertical like a normal male electric plug.
How do I know if the electric should be wired for 110 or something else? Can I just change the electrical outlet to one that matches the plug?
Also, does any one know where I can get manuals that show the proper set up of the machine, how to thread the needles and where to put the bobbins, basic schematic, etc?
I have searched internet extensively and haven't came up with anything.
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
Sorry--I know this isn't much to go on.
Thanks so much-Pam
These guys should have a manual for you. Just tell them you have a LS1 Straight Stitch.
The Thompson machine was the precursor to a whole slew of walking foot clones.
Sailrite may not acknowledge the Thompson but I have researched a few things
and the Sailrite Machines are direct descendants.
Hope this helps.
