I was wondering about the hemstitcher mentioned as a special attachment. It turns out that it actually is a hemstitch fork. I found some other manuals that show some of the special attachments. In http://manuals.husqvarnaviking.com/VSM/Husqvarna%20Viking/HVManual.nsf/1fd5659e6f37141041256697003e64c0/879d8a5797071018852575ed00757f3c/$FILE/Viking%205710%20.PDF on page 54 it shows the hemstitcher and the number has the same number in the middle with added numbers, before and after. Another manual http://www.mengeonline.net/Naehmasch..._manual%20.pdf also shows some of the "special attachments"

This site https://edsmum.wordpress.com/2010/11...-hemstitching/ talks about the hemstitcher fork and has had better results than I have had with hemstitcher fork LOL.

Default Shank info

I think they recommend you not to disassemble the bobbin case completely on your own, if I remember correctly it requires special tools to get it back in place correctly; so clean and lubricate around the parts best you can. I think the top of the free arm comes off with a few screws. I can't remember about twin needles, but I think both model 19 and 21 takes them. I know the later models with much the same rotary bobbin case do.

The only tedious thing I remember with this model can be the reverse button. It's a combo push-turn botton, and if it's frozen it needs repetitive applications of oil in the back, oil, push, turn, oil, push, turn, test sew, ... In the worst of case it can take a few days with special attention and a good oil to get the parts shifting smoothly. It's not difficult and long as you are aware of it, only a bit time consuming. If it's stuck in reverse, lubrication and freeing up parts are the solution.

The motor is strong and fast, especially compared to many modern machines. The motor belt is easy to sort out, if you are lucky, the machine has the two gear pulley. DIY service isn't as easy as with the old straight stitchers, but there are expert help to be found on the web and they usually clean up fine


Can you tell me if the the 19e is a low shank.
Thank you for your time.
