Is there a makers name on the machine anywhere? have a really good look underneath, behind the motor(if it's an external motor), if you can easily take any of the covers off have a look inside. All we need is one word then I can point you in the right direction.

How can I slow down my Toyota sewing machine?


Welcome to the wonderful world of industrial type machines. It sounds like your machine has a clutch motor... which is designed for full on production work. Look on the motor itself for a speed setting switch it might be marked something like 1425 - 1750. or H or L. That's it... you get to sew fast or faster.

Now... If you want to sew more like a home machine. Buy a smart servo motor from Cobra Steve (google his name) Tell him Sylvia sent you and that you want one with the needle position-er if possible. Be sure to tell him the application and what you are sewing. He modifies his smart servos so they can run just like a home machine. (no one else does this)

I don't know the costs of just servo motors but I'm sure Steve will give you a fair deal.

I need to know how to change the pressure between the foot and the sewing plate. I have no problem doing regular sewing but when I try to do several layers (such as quilting) the pressure is too much and...


The rotary control on the left-hand end of the sewing arm controls the foot pressure. You shouldn't normally need to vary this, except when quilting thick materials. The control is normally set with the 'bar' in the middle of the knob straight up-and-down, but you can reduce the pressure by turning it - the markings on the head cover correspond to increasing and decreasing the foot pressure.

Oiling my Janome Gem Gold


Janome Gem are self lubricating. Silicon is embedded in the gears and releases as it runs. If the machine is put away and not run every so often it will lock up. The hand wheel may have thread caught up around it. The Gems aren't assembled to be dissembled except to change the light bulb.
