Question about Consew 226R-1
How do you adjust the stitch length on a Consew 226 R-1?
If it is like the other industrial machines I've used, here is the general principle:
On the machine there is a button with no label. Hold button while turning the handwheel toward you. When you feel the button depressl you can adjust the length. Hold the button in the machine and crank the hand wheel back to decrease the length of ths titch and foward to increase it. I usually put a notch on the fly wheel for my standard length with some nailpolish. Release the button and sew to test the length.

There are two buttons on the bed of the machine, and there's a swiveling metal plate at the top right of the machine,next to the hand wheel. Slide the plate open and observe that there are numbers etched on the round metal wheel under the plate. they go from 5 to about 22. That's stitches per inch.
One of the buttons on the bed is closest to the needle bar. You press that button down and hold it while turning the hand wheel. It will click and stop. Look at the etched number on the wheel under the plate. That's what the current stitch setting is. To change, keep pressing on the button and turn the wheel backwards, away from the machine, or clockwise, until you get the setting you want. Let go of the button and turn the wheel. The hold the button and watch to see where the wheel "clicks" again. It should be where you set it. I keep my machine set at about 6 per inch for most jobs. Works for me. Hope this helps.

Consew 226 will not change stitching length when lock button is pressed. ie, the wheel will not turn. In the past, this adjustment has worked correctly. The machine has been idle for several years. Thanks, Joel
