I need replacement "bobbin winder complete" for the one I broke on my Thompson Mini-Walker PW 201. Does anyone know of a source for it? Also I need a manual for this machine.

If you are unable to replace the bobbin winder for your machine, you might check the local fabric stores for a stand-alone bobbin winder. Last time I checked, they cost around $20-25. They are nice to have because it saves wear and tear on your machine.

Bobbin winder belt melted

Mine stopped working too. Gave up and wound bobbins by hand for a while until I broke down and took the machine apart -- an ordeal to figure out. I found that a pliable ring on the winder was completely disintegrated (gummy plastic-like stuff). An online search found this -- a bobbin "tire" which I THINK is the part I need: Hope this helps. --Also cleaned all the lint out when I had the machine opened up. They don't make it EASY!

Where can I buy an electrical supply and foot control for a Thompson Mini Walking foot Model PW 201

Almost any dealer will sell a replacement part for the sailrite. Its a standard type controller, the cost is 40-80 depending on the quality of the controller and cord. Take the machine in the shop and try to be sure its a correct fit. Sailrite has a mail service as well.

I have a Thompson PW 201 machine . It will not sew through more than one piece of material. I have been using this machine to sew through four pieces of vinyl and never had any problems. Now if iI try...

it sounds like to me that the timing is off, check to see how close the needle is to hitting the bobbin when it comes down through the table. that metalic clunk is probably the needle hitting the bobbin holder, OR the bobbin.. check for a bent needle also..
