@John Miller , Aside from wheels this may be one of the biggest challenges even for a seasoned trimmer. I admire you for wanting to challenge this.

@souperdoo , that is a less than $10.00 fix for the 31 part. I cannot believe that. Thank you

Clearly a tension issue and may related to that fabric itself. Try a strip of vinyl binding and see if it does the same thing also reverse it put vinyl on place of the black webbing and see what happens. Dont mess with the machine just yet.

@souperdoo , you are right! It is probably in that carpet the legs came with attached orange shag carpet :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: . I really am interested in the repair of machines so will start with the 31 just to get sewing as I have a big textile job I need to get through and need the extra machine....

@souperdoo , the thread they had was a Tx 69 and tx 92. There was a thread stand with this machine and I have a feeling due to the spools of cotton thread there may have been another machine in the house? The more I look at this machine it has no wear on it at all and is almost brand new.

@WesleyBurt , I think you are going to have to You Tube for videos on that topic. I hope they are a really good friend because not only are you investing over 08 hours of time at a minimum you could be looking at a couple of redos on that wheel.

@souperdoo ,

This is amazing and extremely helpful. I took pictures of the needles that may have been used. The foot was inside a container with the long needles so maybe those are what they used.

@Superdoo, the machine was serviced long ago at a place that still stands and I had my machine serviced there last year. It is almost like brand new. I am not sure what I will do with this thing though but love that motor on it. I would sew with that as equally as my servo. I really just need to fin...

@superdoo, he did get a super machine may not know it yet but will figure it out. I really have more work than work for this machine if I get it operable. You will notice I am missing the piece to hold the needle and unsure of that lever on the body. It cannot be reverse? I will assume it stitches j...
