Question about Tacsew T500
I'm not sure how familiar you are with the mechanics of the machine but I will try to explain.
1. The feeddog may have moved out of place. This is the part that has the teeth on it that feeds the material through. Turn your handwheel until the teeth are as low as they will go. Hit your knee press and look underneath and see if the full tooth is showing. If the full tooth is not showing the machine will not feed properly. I've worked on hundreds of US blindstitch machines, but only one Tacsew. There should be two screws that will allow you to adjust the feeddog. Be sure to check it by turning the handwheel. Also look to see if it clears front to back as well.
2. The other problem could be the stitch adjustment cam came loose. On other blindstitch machines it is located at the main shaft under the left cover. If you follow your looper drive shaft to the back where it meets the main shaft there should be a cam (it looks like a ring or thick spacer from your vantage point). On it should be numbers with a mark to show how many stitches per inch. On this cam there should be two screws. Loosen these to adjust to desired stitch length.
