Sewing Machine Repair for the Home Sewer
Sewing Machine Repair for the Home
Do it yourself sewing machine repair! Sound like a far fetched idea? Not so, according to Reuben O. Doyle, a sewing machine repairman of 25 years and author of "Sewing Machine Repair For The Home Sewer". "In over 75% of the repair jobs I get, the home sewer/crafter could easily have handled the job if only they'd known what to look for. In about 25% of the repair jobs I go out on, the problem is such a minor one that anyone with a checklist of what to look for could fix it in seconds, but I have to charge them the same service fee as on any repair job. Of course any broken sewing machine parts need to be taken to an authorized service repairman for repair or replacement, but those types of service calls are by far the minority!" "Sewing Machine Repair for the Home Sewer" is a book that is long overdue for anyone who owns a sewing machine. Written in step by step instructional style, it takes the machine owner through problem/solution scenarios allowing them to fix problems that can cause a lot of frustration for those who sew. Whether you have an older model machine, or one of the new computer models, this book will help keep your general repair costs to a minimum. The home sewer can now just look up the problem in this handy guide book and follow the instructions on how to fix i...

Complete Guide To Treadle Sewing Machines
Complete Guide To Treadle Sewing
As a sewing machine repair person for over twenty five years, I've seen almost every problem that can happen with your home sewing machine.I've seen people so frustrated with their new found treadle sewing machine that they were ready to set it aside for looks only, just because they couldn't figure out how to use or operate it. Normally the old treadles no longer have instruction books with them, therefore it's up to the owner to try to figure things out. Even a basic thing like putting on a new belt is an impossible task when you don't know where to begin and what steps to take to get it in the right position and secured properly.If you stop and think about it, the treadle machine is the machine all sewing machines of today were modeled after. The electric motor was added to take the place of the foot power of the treadle machines. The shuttle was changed from the bullet style to the present style of a small round flat shuttle directly under the feed dog and needle bar.I've had many requests to try to locate an instruction manual for treadle sewing machines, to no avail. After years of request after request for information on treadle sewing machines, I was finally talked into writing a book of general instruction for the treadle machine. Keep in mind that there are many d...
