Question about Sewing Machines

Shuttle does not fit in treadle machine?

I have a treadle sewing machine that I do not know what type of shuttle to buy for it. The shuttles that were in the drawers seem to be too long. I cannot figure out how to put them in. I thought the shuttles were pretty much universal. - Improved premium
- badge with the words Enqrirer Cincinnati Ohio.
- a picture of a globe with "it leads the world"
- 7 1134729 under the bobbin plate
- underneath the machine pat. Oct 6, 1881 or 1891
Any information would help me. I do not know who, when, where it was made or anything else about it.

Thank you in advance for all information.

I am thinking that you have the bullet shape shuttle, if you have there are many different sizes of bobbin and the only way to find out is trial and error by buying various types if you can get them, try ebay.

Where to find Free PDF manuals for White sewing machines and Overlockers/Sergers


Hi
strange as it may seem, there are free White overlocker/serger manuals via the Singer website. The manuals include 19th century models too!

Look under Singer's "Support and Resouces" then select "Instruction manuals" , or follow this link: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals

On the Instructions Manual page you'll see it says "Find Your Manual - Step 1, Step 2 etc etc" and under that there's a search box that says "Model Number"

Into this search box just type "w"
(don't type "white", because that doesn't work)

You'll be taken to a near incomprehensible results page,
A) if you have a 20th century model, try doing a find via Ctrl-F and enter in your machine's model number.

B) if you have a 19th century machine, unfortunately the method to finding the manual you need is a case of clicking and opening the PDFs.
However may I suggest a couple that may be of use:
"W7treadle"
- this is a manual of White treadle with a "boat" style bobbin shuttle
"WRotary"
- this is a manual of White treadle with a "rotary" style bobbin shuttle

Good luck, and I hope you find what you need :)
Kind regards
Kura

MY BOBBIN CASE HAS FALLEN APART AND I'M NOT SURE HOW TO PUT THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER.


Sounds like you are describing the hook. Perhaps the owner's manual would be assistance. We don't know the make/model of your machine so are really unable to help. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to install a shuttle and bobbin case, but machines differ.

How do I load the shuttle?


If it is an older model sewing machine, there is a little flap on the bobbin shuttle. Pull out on the flap when you insert the shuttle into the machine, then let go of it. That should lock the bobbin into place.
Good luck

Bobbin shuttle doesn't move


Look in your book.

- There is a bobbin (clear plastic) it rotates.
- The bobbin fits into the bobbin case (black), it does not rotate.
- The bobbin case is nested into the shuttle which does rotate.

There is no bobbin shuttle.

I need to know how to clean and oil the machine


From the Sears Kenmore manual:
Using a small brush, remove the lint that accumulates in the shuttle area and around the feed dogs.
To Clean the Shuttle Area:
  1. This area must be kept free of dust, lint and occasional tangled thread. Raise the needle bar to its highest point and remove the bobbin case.
  2. Push levers of shuttle race aside and lift shuttle race cover and shuttle out.
  3. Clean the shuttle race with a small brush.
  4. Put a drop of oil on the center pin of the shuttle and shuttle race.

Shuttle alignment and assembly


The shuttle/race/bobbin system shouldn't really be taken apart by the average user. Unfortunately, your chances of ever getting it back together properly so the machine will sew (this is the timing of the machine) are very slim. You'll need to take it to a sewing machine technician. I would recommend an authorized Pfaff tech as they'll be sure to have the proper tools to do this correctly - won't be inexpensive but will be worth it. Most "neighborhood sewing machine repair folks" don't have experience on computer machines. Resetting timing on a computer machine isn't the same as the old mechanicals and requires some expertise.
