Ordinary drop feeds are not suited for sewing leather,ideally a needle feed or machine with a walking foot mechanism is best suited.if you are stuck with this machine only,there are a couple of things which may help.on some of the juki ddls there is an adjusting screw and locknut on top and in the middle of the arm of the machine .turn needle by hand wheel to bdc and loosen this screw and turn clockwise slowley! this will raise the presser foot very slightly,so when the feed dog is at tdc it can improve the feeding . spear point needles are reccommended also. one other idea,but you need a qualified mechanic to do this is to alter the feed timimg slightly on the eccentric on the top shaft.as the needle is entering the fabric,slow the timing down so the needle enters the leather just as the material starts to move. hope this helps! cheers kev w 07725903110

make sure to use a leather needle
needle must be inserted correctly,,the falt side of the needle must face the shaft
the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft

raise the needle bar to the highest point,,then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle
push the needle all the way up to the stop, or as far as it will go,then tighten the needle clamp screw

also make sure the needle & thread will work togeather
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

also clean under the needle plate where the feed dogs are
also bobbin area

Juki Sewing machine DDL-555. After 4-5 hours use feed not moving


Sounds like as the machine builds up friction from extended use, some vital part is lacking lubrication and is seizing up. A good service person will remove ALL of the covers and thoroughly air clean and oil every moving part. Sometimes these dry points are hard to find and patience is required.

You can get a sewing machine oiler with a long applicator and put a drop of oil on anything that moves, but over oiling can be messy.
