Question about Consew 206RB
Hello Linda, The information I have on the Consew 206RB-5 is that it is a walking foot machine that has a needle system 135X17 also known as DPX17. Needles in that class range in size from 80/12 (narrowest) to 180/24 (widest) However, They do make larger sizes up to 200/25 in a leather point. Keep in mind, the smaller the needle size, the smaller the needle eye is. I make truck tarps out of 18 ounce heavy vinyl. I use a 140/22 size needle with a 138 size thread. As to what you are sewing, I think a midrange size such as 120/19 or 125/25 will do for you. It also depends on the size of thread you use. Good luck, I hope this helps you.

If you have not already done so, take about 2 arm lengths of thread off your spool to make sure you have not hit a bad spot in the thread. Inspect your needle plate where the needle passes through it and make sure there are no bad nick's or mars on it. If there are use a peice of emery paper to sand them out. Also run a pecice of lighter material through your top tensions discs to make sure no debris has gotten caught in them. Hope this helps you out?
