Question about Vacuums
Hi I'm using an Empisal 270D dress maker. I was busy sewing a onesie when suddenly my stitches started skipping badly or loosely. I've tried re-threading, playing around with the tension, and when I've changed something I test it on a piece of off cut material and then it seems fine but after a few stitches it acts up again. What can I do to fix this problem?
Sounds like your tension is vibrating off to a least tension position, When the machine does this again check your tension button. Hope this is the solution?

I haven't been able to locate a manual for this machine at first look. The only Empisal manual I did find was called "Expandamatic" at this site http://sewingonline.co.uk/empisal.html there is an image of the model. Or you could try www.2instructions.com or www.manualfox.com and see if they have something available to buy.
However, http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/bb/sewingmachines.htm this website gives lots of general information on sewing machines, how to use, basic threading up in a general way and other tips and tricks.
In general terms most sewing machines will have the following controls:
stitch length selector/dial - to choose length of stitch, usually goes from zero to 4, normal straight stitch would be 2.5.
Stitch width selector - early models only did straight and zigzag, so by adjusting this knob you would set how wide the zig zag stitch is. If your machine does other stitch combinations, then you would use this to set the width for those too. Again, probably ranges from zero (straight stitch would be zero) up to 4.
A tension dial setting to adjust the tension on the top thread, usually set to 5, but would range from zero to 10.
If your machine does anything more than straight and zigzag, then it would have some other dial or stitch selector or even a cam that you insert to get these other stitches.
I hope this helps you get started with your machine.

Hi. Start by taking everything back off. There should be the knob, a spring, two matching discs and one disc that is smaller than the other two. The two matching discs should go on first and should mirror one another with the flaring edges both facing out from where the discs touch. Then goes the smaller disc, then the spring with the larger end on the discs. Screw on the knob with the numbers facing out, all the way down till it stops and that should be the maximum setting. Back it off all the way to where the tension is indicated as 3 for your starting point. By the way, do all of that with the foot lowered. Raising the foot should separate the tension discs, which makes it possible to pull your work piece out from under the sewing area without breaking the thread.
