Looking for Adler manual

We purchased an industrial sewing machine at an auction for $75.00 with a 3 phase motor. Just got a new motor off ebay and got it running, works great but skips a stitch every few inches. I am looking for a manual for cleaning & adjusting it, also got a box with additional attachments that I am not sure how to attach & use. It says Chandler on the front of the machine and the tag on the back says Adler 167-GK-373. Have been searching with no luck. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Michelle

If it's an Adler, it is a very good machine. Is this your machine?: http://johngardeco.com/Adler%20167%2...ng%20Foot.html If so, it's an Adler 167 which was made from 1955 until 1984. This series of machines is 67-167-267, the latter two are upgrades to the model 67. Here's a link for a model 67 manual: http://www.sewingmanuals.com/Sewing_...uals/Adler.htm The manual may help some, but it probably will not help you with the attachments, so your best bet is to take your machine to a professional sewing machine mechanic and have it gone over and timed. You got a terrific bargain, so this will either be money well spent, or you will find out that putting more money into the machine would be a waste of time. If you got any old thread with the machine, throw it away and buy new. Good luck.

That is our machine on the first site listed, table & machine. It is in very good shape & we hope to have many years of sewing vehicle interiors & horse tack. I have a local source for thread & now I can get needles ordered as well. The information is very much appreciated. I will check with the local service tech to see what it will cost to have it serviced in house due to the size & weight of the unit. Thanks again! Michelle

Put a new needle in it, and get the best needles you can find, like Schmetz or Groz-Beckert. (the biggest it can handle, which will probably be a 135/17 #22. The higher the number, the stiffer the needle.) Industrial machines can handle a lot, but if you're also going to sew horse tack, sew slowly while doing so. There are places you may want to sew one stitch at a time while turning the wheel by hand. I'm glad you found some help here. Good luck.

Got the exact manual, Parts List, & sales brouchure

Keystone sells that model yet, why don't you contact them at this web address:
http://www.keysew.com/Durkopp%20Adler%20267-373.htm

This is a link directly to the manual:
http://www.keysew.com/267%20Owners%20Manual.pdf

And here is the parts list:
http://www.keysew.com/267%20Parts%20List.pdf


What I've done in the past is send or take the download to Kinko's and have them print it on 70 pound paper and spiral bind it with a clear cover, recently a 23 page manual cost me $7.20. I'm sure Office Max, Staples, or Office Depot can due the same thing as well as many local companies. Good Luck.

John

Have you guys noticed that this thread is 3 months old, and there is a link to the factory manual that the original poster was looking for?

Thanks John for all the great info. I still have not gotten a manual, but I will print this one out & get it in a folder. We did get the machine adjusted and have sewn some basic seat covers for tractors here at the farm. It also sews leather beautifully for our tack repair needs.

We love to read on this forum, there is so much great info!

Thanks again
Michelle

Here is the manual for the 267. There is no manual available from Adler for the 266. They should be almost identical. ADLER 267

Take the machine to an industrial sewing machine mechanic and have it timed, the tensions set, and looked over for worn and/or broken parts. It will be the best $100 you ever spent.

There is very little in any of the manuals to tell you how to clean the machine or what the attachments are for. Those would be good questions to ask the mechanic when you take it in.
