Question about Sewing Machines
Saw in one of your posts that you seem to have some New Home service manuals. Would you be able to tell me what the timing tolerances are? I've found this pic online:
From your post it seems like 23b is probably the same (.05mm), I'm wondering if 23a is the same too (1.2mm) as mine is about 5mm or so.
Not sure who this was addressed to, just came across it today.
What model machine do you have ?
Timing is fairly straightforward.......if a top loader, then:
Remove the bobbin case, & set to widest zigzag.
When the needle rises to where the tip point is level with the top of the white plastic inner of the hook race, the hook point must align with the right side of the needle (as it rises).......the zigzag will be in the left position of it's swing (so the hook is travelling it's greatest distance)
The .05mm is the distance apart (Hook & Needle) so it seems you are OK on that score.
Depending on which model, there are several options for the hook timing....usually 2 hex nuts on the bottom shaft, to liberate the bottom shaft from the connection with the drive belt/crank so you may then adjust the hook position to the above mentioned position, re-tighten...... et voila !
Here is the same thing for a Jem Gold direct from the manual:
If this is sufficient, great, if not, let me know the model it will usually start with "V" on the compliance plate........a photo could also be helpful as we only have Janome in Australia, so shall need to translate the model across (same company makes them both, and Kenmore !)
If you want any more help with this, just post back here, or, drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au
