I ask this same question of a man trying to sell me an old Pfaff that was made without reverse. He told me I only need reverse to knot the thread at the end of a seam. All I had to do was hold the fabric a little tighter than the presser foot does and the needle would stay in the same spot and the thread would pass through itself as many times as you think you need.
I have not tried it yet but if you just let the needle sew past the end of the fabric a half inch or so you should get a line of knots
The end of the seem you are making will always be covered by the next piece of fabric your adding to what ever your making.
Or a trimming of some kind, or as in upholstery held in place with staples and then always covered.

Your not going to leave a raw edge any where ! right?

How do I tilt my machine back to access the oil pan? The knee lifter bar is in the way and hit when I try to tilt my machine.

I don't know if you were the person that I was just writing to or not. I didn't think about the knee lift. I generally sew on a Juki DDL-5800 and we don't have the knee lift problem. I have an older walking foot with the knee lift. You might try what works with that one. Grab the front of the knee lift, push it towards the back and at the same time pull it up and left. There is a metal peg at the back of the shaft that will release and let you pull the knee lift out so that you can push the machine back. If that doesn't work, see if you can contact me and I can call someone else to find out.

I have used consew bls-600 industrial sewing I purchased recently. The stitch length 0-4 dial was not working and was very tight. I tried to open it. Now the reverse handle is also not working and t

Shorten your stitch in reverse the machine can't do a stitch that long in reverse. Also google your make and model machine and the word Manual so you can properly learn to use the machine safely.

Juki ddl 555 knee lifter is not lifting the foot. How can I fix it?

I imagine that it is the mechanical knee lift that you actually lift with your knee? Sometimes the screw that holds the knee lift rod comes loose a little and starts to slide in the holder. Sit on the floor where you can see the underneath of your table and use a wrench or vise grip to loosen the bracket that holds your knee lift bar with the pad on it. Move the bar to the left and retighten the screw and I think you will be ok. Sometimes if there is too much oil in your pan or you have moved the machine and some of the oil spilled out, a little oil gets out of the pan onto the bar and makes it start to slip. If that doesn't work we'll try something else.

Just got a new Consew 206 but can't figure out how to install the knee lift onto the head. Can you help me? thank you.

First make sure your oil pan is installed. Sitting at the machine the opening should be to the right. Turn the table upside down. Then move the rod with the two brackets over the opening in the oil pan. The opening should be just below a part with a roller bearing on it. When the knee pad is moved the rod on the shaft comes in contact with the roller bearing and lifts the lever for the walking foot. The front bracket should be about 1 inch from the front of the table and the long rod centered roughly in the left third of the opening in the oil pan. Use a magic marker to mark the holes for the brackets then pre drill your holes. Test moving the rod because if it is too tight in the brackets it won't move when you move the knee pad. I used the part with the curved rod to make contact with the roller bearing. The part for the pad goes in front. Since there were no instructions and Consew was no help I figured it out by trial and error. Hope this helps.

You need someone to do it because you have to get the motor and the belt in the correct place, you can't do it by instructions over the web

Tension discs/ shredding needle thread

Your knee pad raises the presser foot and in turn releases the disc tension. The mechanism for this is in the front of the machine. If you can remove a nose piece this will be a lot easier to see,
There is a pin that pushes the tension discs open and quite often this has been removed or adjusted so a to not release tension when the presser foot is raised {more likely if this was a production machine} If someone took the tension control apart to accomplish this that my guess as to question 2.
The best part about Consew is the parts are common and the whole tension assembly isn't expensive. You can find service manuals on their website (see link)
