Question about Tacsew Sewing Machines
How to slow down the machine
Generally going to have to be addressing the drive motor, either substituting a lower speed clutch motor for the existing one, ie if you have 3000 rpm motor, then going to a 1725 rpm motor. Alternatively, selling the clutch motor and buying a servo motor instead, which should be available with a variable maximum speed control. The Sewquiet 4000 can select different speed ranges with the flick of a switch. If you already have a servo motor and it does not have a variable max speed, then switching the drive pulley on the servo motor to a smaller size should help
A more convoluted solution would be building a support under the table for a layshaft with different pulley sizes so that the motor could drive one pulley and then a smaller pulley on the shaft would drive the sewing machine. Not a bolt on solution but pretty cheap to do if you are good at fabricating.
