Tacsew t111 needle bar

I have been having weird issues with stitch quality and tension for awhile, and the source of the problem finally reared it's ugly head. The needle bar set screw vibrated loose, causing the needle bar to creep up, until it loosened enough to be obvious. I have adjusted it to the best of my ability, and it seems to be ok, does anybody know the specs for adjusting the needle bar? My manual is not real clear. Thank you in advance, JCar

Sorry, I didn't see this thread until today.

With the needle installed and fully seated as far up into the needle bar as possible, at the very bottom of the needle bar's stroke the hook needs to be centered in the scarf (cut out area) on the right side of the needle. The eye of the needle is just under the scarf.

The picture isn't that great, but you can see the thread coming out of the eye of the needle as the point of the hook approaches the scarf above the eye.

Thank You, DanTwoLakes, Funny thing is.....I was kind of surprised when you did not answer earlier !! I don't mean any disrespect with that comment, I know most of us that use this board have really become reliant on your knowledge, and IT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thank You again, looks like I am close, but I need to adjust a bit more. JCAR

You're welcome. I'd like to add that this is the same for every industrial sewing machine, not just yours.
