The BeA 71/16-421 stapler is what I recommend. Its costs $197 here in the states on amazon. https://amzn.to/2CVi4r6 $400 for a stapler sounds quite extreme. Where is that price coming from? @BigRig @Revv Up What staple gun are you using there in Canada? I bought a Fasco F1B a few years ago, it’s be...
I’ve had problems with large spools of Sungaurd where the spools are wound to tight and just causes too much friction giving me all kinds of grief. The only cure I have found is to wind it on bobbins and use them to feed the top thread.
Only thing I can think of it shorten the feet posts by the same amount, I’d buy a cheap set to experiment with.
I have found the best servo motors to buy have a digital controller that allows you to adjust speed and needle position. Mine can be cranked up to the highest speed yet still crawl one stitch at a time when needed. Don’t know if you can add one to your motor but if you can they are well worth it. ht...
At the risk of sounding like a skipping record.... learn how to check your hook timing. A good cleaning and oiling always helps and if you have been sewing through glue or tape a lot check for sticky residue on the needle/ hook assembly. It doesn’t take much to get the timing off if your pounding th...
I had a similar problem the other day, figured out I used mismatched feet and the heights were different causing feed problems, put the proper pairs in and problem solved.
I also have a Juki 1541, my bets are
1) the timing is off
2) hook too far from needle
3) your thread is wound too tight on the spool and requires too much effort to unspool.
For straight line projects I will use Tyvec paper (house wrap) it’s thin, cheap and resists flexing and stretching. For curved shapes I use boat top clear, the nice part is you can see through.
A longer throw for the rod from the treadle to the clutch and or a different pulley will help but...... servo motors are relatively cheap, easy to install and just work awesome. You won’t be sorry.
I’d try increasing the foot tension and see if that helps.
