Cutting wheel installation

How do you attach the cutting wheel to a bit. I assume I need to use the pointed threaded bit but I can't get the wheel to thread on the bit. The bit appears to big for the wheel.

    The instructions were quite vague with regards to installing a cut-off wheel. If I am understanding correctly, the threaded-point arbor is not the correct one for the cut-off wheels (?) and I am to use an arbor that has a removal screw on it ???

Do not use the threaded bit. You need a mandrel that has a tiny screw on the top. Take the screw out and thread it onto the cutting wheel and then screw it back on. My book says its mandrel #401.

Left needle not sewing

Assuming this is a serger/overlocker...

Check to be sure the left needle is installed all the way in the holder. Sometimes debris (threads, lint, etc) accumulate and prevent the needle from seating properly. Use the needle holder tool to hold the needle up while tightening the screw.

Cut all the threads between the thread tree and tension disks. Set all the tension controls to zero. RAISE the presser foot and pull out all the cut threads (always pull them Down through the machine, never Up).

Now, with the presser foot still RAISED, rethread each thread in the Order specified in the manual. Give each thread a little tug when pulling it through the tension disk. Make sure each thread is threaded through every guide as instructed. (Usually the upper looper is threaded first, then the lower looper--if this is your sequence, be sure to DRAPE the lower looper thread over the upper looper in its last step.) Then thread the needles. Pull all the thread tails under the presser foot and toward the back of the machine.

Now, lower the presser foot. Set all the tension controls to the midway point and test.

Fix a mess - the thread wound under the bobbin spindle?

so take of the thread and cut it off the needle and remove as much thread as you can see. pull through anything from the spool. take off the tray in front of the foot, there is a door right under the foot where the bobbin goes, open the door under the foot is a silver dome looking thing with a flat lever on the front, pull on this lever a little and it unlocks the bobbin holder, this whole dome piece will slide out and the bobbin is in it there is probably a bunch of thread around there, cut it out and pull out with tweezers , careful there is a very sharp hook that rotates and catches the thread, it Will cut you. you might have to yank and cut a little while you pull . once you have the bobbin out yur at the spindle. Crank the wheel on the outside top on the right trying to rotate the sewing machine, it should move a little and by finding a thread in there you can pull it out . you can turn hard enough to make it tear the thread you wont break the machine.
Note: to release the sewing machine motor from the mechanism, you rotate the little wheel in the larger wheel, make sure this is engaged all the way, at a halfway point it acts like a brake.this mechanism is usually used when rewinding the bobbin, so the machine stops turning.

All of a sudden , as soon as i finish sewing a piece of fabric the thread will break. i can continue to sew as the main machine is still threaded.

There may be a bit of thread stuck in the bobbin or somewhere under the machine. Turn the machine sideways and look with a flashlight. Then turn the wheel a couple times and look again...Good Luck...xo

My bobbin seems to be incorrectly, after a struggle -now the needle keeps losing its thread, so I'm sowing with no top thread!!! What am I doing!!'

Assuming your bobbin is threaded correctly. Try to pull your top thread thru the needle a bit longer & suggest you turn your hand wheel towards you till the needle just poked thru the fabric, then only you start sewing.

Artista 180 - I keep getting error message to check upper thread - happens almost every stich - changed thread, changed fabric, changed needle - error keeps happening...any ideas?

There are a number of possible reasons for this, but, assuming the thread hasn't actually broken (!), it may well be that the upper thread sensor flag has come off the check spring - this is something I see fairly regularly and is frequently the result of people pulling the upper thread 'backwards' out of the machine a bit too quickly, rather than cutting it off at the spool and drawing it through the machine in the correct direction. It's a bit fiddly and very difficult to explain how to check this, without taking all the covers off. However .... if you take the head cover off (single screw) and look carefully at the bottom of the metal takeup lever cover you will see a large slotted screw with a spring wound around it - this is the check spring. The end of the check spring pokes-out behind the takeup lever cover and the thread goes through a loop in its end when you thread the machine up. Thread the machine up as far as the takeup lever, take hold of both ends of the thread and gently raise it - you should see the check spring move upwards. Now, look very carefully at the part of the spring between the big coil around the screw and the loop where the thread passes-through ... there should be a black plastic part attached from the other side of the takeup mechanism (you cant get at this without taking the front cover off !). If it's not attached, you can very very carefully wiggle the spring and sensor flag back so that the spring sits in the slotted part of the sensor flag (either that or take it to your Bernina service agent !). If the sensor appears to be attached, it could also be the optical sensor which is attached to the front cover just above the reverse switch - sometimes this gets full of fluff or I have seen a couple with manufacturing faults where the sensor flag gets caught in the optical sensor circuit board ... whatever the case, this is really a job for the service agent.
Good Luck

I want to use flap disc's on my grinder with out the threaded portion attached. What do I have to do to install them on the grinder.

Need to remove club from steering wheel

Drill the keyhole and stick a slide hammer (dent removal tool) with a threaded bit. Once threaded bit is secured in the hole you just drilled, pull the slide hammer action (like pulling a dent out) so the key mechanism can come off and release the lock hold on the serrated teeth on the rod of the club.

If that's just too much to be able to happen, another solution could be found in Home Depot. Purchase a Dremel high speed tool with a cutting disc for metal. Cut through the rod and you're home free.

White serger

You did not say it jammed from thread or just stopped working.

If it is thread, then you will need to carefully use embroidery scissors with a sharp point or a razor blade to cut at the lump of threads and carefully pull them out with your tweezers till you clear the mess. Use your vacuum to get all bits out of there, being careful and not hitting the loopers. You can knock them out of alignment with thread jams and such.

If it just stopped and you cannot turn the wheel, then it needs a trip to the repair shop, either your dealer or to a sew and vac repair where they know how to service sergers.

How do you attach cutting wheel to the bit?

You need a # 402 bit. This comes with a screw on top that detaches and goes through the hole in the cutting wheel (very small hole). Then just re-attach it to the bit and you're in business. Depending on the particular cut-off wheel you're using, the wheel can be extremely fragile. Even though it will cut steel, it is brittle. ALWAYS wear safety glasses when using a cut-off wheel particularly, they will inevitably shatter and go flying!
Probably best to go to a local hobby store, buy a few bits for $10, and pick the owners brain about the tool.
