I'm just east of Wausau. Ariel Vacuum and Sewing 624 N 3rd ave, Wausau, WI 715-842-1696 has been there has long has I can remember and I moved to Wausau in 1976. I bought B92 "Sunguard" bonded polyester and B69 bonded nylon thread and needles for my Singer there last spring when I bought my machine. He had a Consew 226r that he doing some repair on the safety clutch. So I know he must know something about these compound walking foot machines. Like I said, I bought my Singer last year (got it for a good price) from a guy in Merrill that told me his Dad got it from the Weinbrenner shoe factory. He didn't have a needle or thread and just plugged it in and ran the machine for me. I bought new thread and needle and began sewing with it. My prior sewing experience is with regular home owner sewing machines. I've had this problem with the machine since I started using it and at first I thought it was me doing something wrong. Now after doing small projects with it for almost a year and still having the problem I'd like to have the machine looked at and tuned up. I'm 99% sure it isn't me. I've read a bunch of posts and played around with it enough that I think it is something with the machine. The machine doesn't do it all the time. I'd say about 50% of the time.
