That's a very common machine, so parts are easy to find. There is a place in California that I buy all my parts from. It's called Cut Sew Service. They have a web site: www.cutsewservice.com

BTW, for some reason that web site doesn't seem to work after their normal business hours. Try it during week days, and remember they're on Pacific time.

My brother in law is still having problems with his singer 211. The tension on the top thread becomes excessive and breaks the top thread at the needle. The stitches however are loose. Any ideas on this. We replaced the top tensioner

What size thread is he using? Heavier thread, like size 138 and up, does not need to be woven through the top thread guide like in the 1st picture. It should go through it like in the 2nd picture.

He is using # 69 nylon thread. We had it working good the other day. He seems to think that the thread is binding up in the tensioner. The bobbin tension seems tight when stitching although manually pulling on it seems about like my consew which is working great.

Do the stitches on the underside look normal? The picture you posted makes it look like there is almost no bobbin tension. Look at your bobbin case. I have had the little flat black spring steel bobbin tension get bent or break before, which resulted in stitches like you are experiencing. You also may have something jammed in there that won't let the bobbin thread go under the tension spring. The machine could also be dramatically out of time. Did you change the needle lately? Make sure the scarf (the flat area just above the eye of the needle) is pointing to the right, not the left. Believe it or not, my sewing machine mechanic told me that was one of the most common mistakes people make.
