SOURCE: cannot locate my manual at moment and need to know

typically you need to increase the upper tension to 7-8 for very heavy duty materials, I like to start with the machine at like 4 and increase till it is just perfect. Good luck with your project.

SOURCE: Is the Riccar 9800 heavy duty enough to sewing a bimini top for sailboat?

I would suggest you go to the link below, called sailrite, they have a online
chat, ask them what sewing machine they would suggest for the fabric
& plastic you want to use, I've been sewing for over 30 years & it's better
to get a sewing machine that will do what you want the first time, rather
than get a sewing machine that says it can but can't deliver.

Can this sewing machine handle sewing a canvas sail for a boat?


Which machine? If it is a domestic sewing machine, you will most likely ruin it sewing heavy canvas. (Don't be confused if the maker says it's "heavy duty." Heavy duty domestics are no different than other domestics--it's just a fancy name to make you think it's heavy duty.) A real heavy-duty machine would be an industrial machine.

Is there a dressmaker sewing machine with the model no. 777?


In the 1960's, Riccar made a heavy duty 777 sewing machine. Riccar made machines into the 1970's. The headquarters appears to have been in Chicago before it moved offshore. Value of the machine? Maybe $100 if it worked. Parts might be found or salvaged from machines used for parts. However, here is a Riccar shop in South Carolina:

I would be doubtful regarding offers of a manual for sale for this online unless at minimum it was attached to a brick and mortar store in business (and even then might query the local Better Business Bureau).

Is pfaff hobbymatic a heavy duty machine?


The term "heavy duty" sewing machine is thrown about loosely lately. There are new machines (including Pfaff, Singer, etc) for sale advertised as "heavy duty," but I would be hesitant to stitch denim jean hems on them. The Pfaff 807, which appears to be an older mechanical, is probably more "heavy duty" than some newer machines on the market. However, "heavy duty" does not mean that you can sew big canvas sailcloth or heavy upholstery projects. A domestic machine (which the Pfaff 807 is) is really meant for general domestic sewing. If you want to sew "heavy duty" fabric, then look to an industrial machine. Remember that frequent sewing of heavy fabric takes a toll on a domestic machine, ie the motor, needlebar, other working parts, thus hastening the demise of your machine and the more frequent need for service & repair.

How do I thread up a Riccar Reliant 57 sewing machine? I have just been given one and their is no manual. I will purchase one but need to use the machine now. Thanks.


HI
Try finding a threading diagram in a manual for another riccar machine here.
http://www.riccar.com/help/manuals/
I couldn't see a manual here for the Riccar Reliant 57 but there are ones for the RL570 etc.
Most machines by the same brand thread in the same way.
Hope this helps!

Heavy material feed dog


To the very best of my knowledge (and I've been full time as a manager / owner in my family sewing machine sales / service business for almost 30 years (with many more part-time before that), I know of no "heavy material" feed dog that has been available for the Pfaff 130. Please keep in mind that the 130, while pretty heavy duty (especially compared to many of today's machines), was never manufactured or intended to be heavy duty in the sense of sewing heavy items such as uphaolstery fabrics (canvas, nagahide, etc.). It was produced with the intent of being a reliable household (non-commercial / industrial) machine with the purpose of sewing light-to-moderate heavy metrails. What exactaly are you trying to sew that leads you to the request of using "heavy material" feed dogs or that you feel Pfaff produced / manufactured such an item?

Best regards,

Dave
