I am using a satin stitch to applique. The tension
You need to tighten the tension on the bobbin thread as it is too loose and is being pulled through by the tension on the top which is probably correct. First check that the bobbin is in correct. I know it's frustrating but even after 40 yr it's where I start if it's all in right then tighten the screw on the bobbin case a little at a time till you get it to the right tension. The thread coming out of the bobbin case should take a pull for thread to come out if you hold the thread and turn loose of the bobbin case and the thread unwinds like a yo-yo it's to loose. The bobbin should stay in the case wile you test it this way.

Bobbin thread bunching up.
Thread the machine with the presser foot up and see if this will remedy the problem.
If not, refer to the manual to be sure the threading and bobbin are set up as they should be.
If the bobbin thread and top thread continue to not link together, it could be the timing needs to be adjusted.
In this case, take the machine to a Brother dealer for service along with a sample of the stitching.

What size needles fit a Rex 26-188 walking foot machine?
16x63 needle system, unless it's been retimed for something else. Suggest you might want to find the dull, bent up or otherwise still intact needle and show it to your industrial supplier or repair person, so they can check for you.
Needle system tells you about the length and timing distance of the needle: see, e.g.: http://designer-entrepreneurs.com/blog/illustrations/Singer_Needle.pdf Size tells you about the diameter of the needle: here's a suite of home sewing machine needles, all of the same needle system, but one of the photos shows a comparison of sizes:
