Question about Tacsew T500

Open Question

I have a tacsew T175-2 blind hemmer. I need a new machine setting vice to clamp the machine to my table. I also need a knee lifter rod shaft, a lifting arm clamping screw and a lifter rod sleeve. Can you advise me about the availability of these items. My Hemmer is about 20 years old and since I do clothing alterations, it is most vital to my business. Any help you can give me will be greatly apreciated`

I purchased mine from the Tacony Corporation. They also distribute/make babylock machines. Make sure you ask for the english version. There is really not much to it. They xeroxed and sent it to me. Google for their URL.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Help!
I am breaking a lot of needles and the tension is getting too tight on its own while stitching and causing the thread to break. I am learning the machine for two weeks. Is it so sensitive too wools, cottons, and fleece that this would make such a major difference in the stitching - breaking needles, breaking thread?

(A) It may not be tension that is causing the problem with your portable blindstitch. If you have broken needles it has probably left some needle burrs in the thread and needle path that need polishing off with fine emory cloth (crocus) before sewing again.

Start with a new LWx6T needle without thread or fabric. Watch the needle as you turn the hand wheel. If there is needle deflection, reduce the penetration dial until there is no needle movement. If there is needle deflection caused by burrs, they must be polished off. Check the looper tip and two arms for any needle burrs and polish off. If there is needle deflection caused by the needle track lifting the needle, lower the track very slightly with the screws on the side of the black metal bracket above the needle.

Finally, Back off on the tension dial and retighten while you are sewing with a light strong thread and light to medium weight fabric, until you get the correct tension without loops. If tension is too tight it will push the thread up so it is not all the way down between the tension discs where it belongs.

(Q) I can't understand how to finish off at the end. It
always unravels. I have read the manual and it seems simple but I
apparently just "don't get it." Any help would be appreciated.

(A) At the end of the blindhem seam, position the needle all the way to the left, then use the knee lift to remove the fabric and jerk on the fabric at the same time. That will tie off the tread and break the thread at the
needle without bending the needle. You can weave the thread tail back into the stitches or cut it off. Before the above procedure, you could also turn the handwheel counterclockwise for a few stitches, then come back to the end of the seam and repeat the first procedure above.

I was looking for a manual for my T500 as well and stumbled across this site:

It is for the reliable brand but they are almost identical and it is better than nothing!

SOURCE: My blind hemmer is skipping stitches which then makes it possible to unravel the entire seem. What is causing this?

I would suggest changing the needle
have you ran over any pins or heavy seams?
I would suggest finding a sewing machine shop in your area that can work on
the machine. because it could be out of time,,

DOES THE TACSEW T1718 MACHINE SEW IN A ZIG ZAG


Does it have a Stitch Width control? If not, it is probably a limited stitch only. Most Tacsew machines are made for high speed industrial sewing and frequently are made to perform a limited number of stitches. It appears this is a blindstitch for hemming.

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.

I need a replacement pressure foot release lever for a Simplicity BH600 blind hemmer.


Supposedly, Simplicity is made for Tacony. I would start there to ask about parts.

Is this a presser foot lifter?

I do not recall ever seeing a pressure foot lifter.
