I'm Always In Trouble

Check all the linkage from the pedal up to the motor. I always adjust the pedal with the motor arm in the full stop position.
Also make sure the actuating rod coming off the pedal is straight and vertical and not at an angle.
If you are still having problems give Bobby a call.

I have 4 servo motors on 4 separate machines and all 4 seem to have to have the speed dials adjusted at different positions.
None of them operate in an identical fashion.

Hi Miket,

Did you buy this machine from a factory setting? Some of those machines are set up for wide open all the time.  The first and only time I used a servo was working for a guy in south Florida. That machine was fast and great for sewing long runs of welt but forget about sewing a cushion with it. He had other machines I used to do more detailed work.

There has to be a way to slow that thing down. Different pullys maybe?

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

Put a 50mm pulley on it and it has helped.
I think with some more practice it may be manageable and if not I will upgrade to a better quality servo.

I recently bought an old Adler 67-GK373 and faced the same speed issue (Consew 550 servomotor). What I ended up doing is adding about 12" of aluminum tubing to the throttle lever on the motor, and reducing the motor sheave size from 3.15" down to 2.25" and it helped. Some of the folks on the leather forums apparently use jackshaft arrangements to slow down their machines a lot (and give more punch for leather).
