Sounds like a bubbly good time cleaning it up....careful that he doesn't slip out of the saddle.
Once I can get the use of both hands, I'll give that a try. Last year I had to soak the bobbin winder from my 127 in fluid film to get it moving... it was rusted together. I don't think this one will be as difficult. I'm still not sure what to do about that hard tire.
I'm planning on giving it a try tomorrow. With the hand therapy today I didn't get to it. But I feel like I might be able to get back to my former self now that I can start getting the movement back in my hand. I'll be sure to let you know how the cleanup goes. Thanks, Glen.
Wishing a Happy Hanukkah to those that celebrate! May your home be bright with happiness.
Hi, Is there a post here about adjusting the timing on an oscillating bobbin machine...It's a vintage Bamberger deluxe zig zag and has internal cams for some other stitches....I would like to try doing it myself If possible...
I doubt that you will find a manual or any repair info on this particular machine. It is similar to a lot of other badged Japanese machines. Timing is a tricky thing to do yourself too, if it is indeed off. Most machines are not out of time. Especially one that robust. If you are set on doing it yourself, you should learn as much about timing as you can on a machine similar to yours. Most are similar but if you learn a lot about similar machines they should apply to your machine too. What you are looking for is the hook to pass the needle JUST as the needle starts to retract upwards. I hope this helps.
Thanks, Chris. I may have to find one. [
