Consew 226 Speed

Is there any way possible to reduce the speed of a 226? I know you can feather the motor in and out, but I dont want to do that all the time. Has anyone ever changed the lower pulley or upper pully to reduce the RPM's at the head?
I know it is designed to go at at incredible pace, but just learning and getting into the trade, its sometimes frustrating that it "runs away" with such ease.

Thanks
Richard

I recently have had the very same problem. I went to Ace Hardware and bought a pulley about the size of the drive shaft and put that on the motor. This reduced the speed nicely. Also, another thing that helped quite a bit is loosening the belt. I had it tight at first but when I loosened it, it is much easier to control the take off speed. Use your hand to slow the wheel as you start.

How do you slow down the consew 206rb


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 just bought a Yamata GC8500 Industrial Sewing Machine. I asembled it an test drove it and it is to fast. I can't feather the tread to slow it down. Is there any other was of reducing the speed? I am not...


I had the same problem and I found a smaller pulley for the motor. It slowed it down considerably. I found the pulley at a heavy equipment parts shop. You'll have to do some serchung but people will point you in the right direction.

I recently moved and can't find the belt to my Consew 226. Having problems finding a replacement. Can you help!


Go to www.consew.com and download the parts list for the 224 Consew. It's the same as the 226 for parts. Or, go to www.diamondneedle.com. They have nearly every part you're likely to need. I got bobbin case screws, a hook, some metal reusable bobbins, and some needles, all at very reasonable prices.

Can not start at a slow speed with foot pedal need to now how to adjust start speed


THE FOOT PEDLE IS NOTHING BUT A REASTAT. A REASTAT IS A WIRE WRAPPED AROUND A CONDUCTOR THE WINDINGS START OUT FAR APART AND GET CLOSER TOGETHER THE FARTHER YOU PUSH THE PEDLE DOWN . THE FAR APART WIRES ARE THE SLOW SPEED THE CLOSER ONES ARE FASTER SPEED
THESE WIRES WILL WEAR OUT OVER TIME OR CORRODE OVER TIME AND CAUSE THIS PROBLEM. TRY SOME ELECTRICAL CONTACT CLEANER AND SPRAY THE FOOT PEDLE INSIDE ANY WHERE YOU CAN AND LET DRY. MOST CONTACT CLEANERS ARE NONE CONDUCTIVE AND DRY IN MINUTES

Looking at a used consew 226 and found a new 226 didnt know if there was much of a difference between the older and the new they look identical. and what year did consew first come out


Go to www.consew.com. Either send an email or call them. They're very responsive to questions.
I have a 226R-1, my second one. Both of mine were built in Japan and are/were at least 2- - 30 years old. I think current models are made in China. Serial numbers are under the bed on the front side of the bed.
