BREAKING-IN & DIRECTION OF ROTATION
To assure durability and trouble-free operation, it is imperative that for the first
several weeks of operation the maximum speed is held to no more than 2000
RPM in order to allow the parts to become properly broken in.
In operation the handwheel of the machine always turns toward the operator.
To avoid tangled threads and jamming of the sewing hook, do not turn handwheel
otherwise.
SPEED
Maximum operating speed after a break-in period is 2400 stitches per minute
depending, of course, on the type of material being sewn, its thickness and that of
the seams being crossed.

REMOVING AND INSERTING THE BOBBIN
1.Lift the needle bar to its highest point, place the feed dog at this side in its travel
turning the machine pulley, and open the slide plate (A, Fig.2)
2.Pass left hand under table into opening on drip pan . With left thumb and index
finger, open the hinged latch ( C,Fig.4). And pull bobbin case and bobbin from
rotary hook. While the latch is held open, the bobbin will be retained in the bobbin
case. Release of the latch and turning of the open side of the bobbin case down
ward will cause the bobbin to drop out.
3.Hold the bobbin between the thumb and the forefinger of your right hand and pull
out a length of about 5cm of thread . Holding the bobbin case in your left hand
turn the open side up and place the threaded bobbin into it. (Fig.9)
4.With the right hand guide the thread into the slot in the edge of the bobbin case.
Then pull the thread to the left, under the tension spring (0,Fig.9) and into the
delivery eye . In order to keep the bobbin from dropping out of the case when it is
turned with the open side down , always keep the hinged latch (C,Fig.4) at the front
of the bobbin case open.
5.Take the threaded bobbin case by the latch (C,Fig.4) and place it on the center stud
of the bobbin case holder. Release latch and press bobbin case on to center stud until
the latch catches the undercut thereon with a click that can be heard. Permit about
5cm of bobbin thread to hand down freely. Be sure to push the slide plate to the
right before starting to sew.

THREADING THE MACHINE (Fig. 10)
1.Raise the needle bar to its highest point and lead the thread from the thread stand
the following order:
From the thread stand lead the thread from back to front through the lower guide
hole in pin® on top of the machine arm, then again from right to left through the
upper guide hole in this pin. Pass thread in weaving fashion through the three holes
in guide®, and from right to left over and between the tension discs®. Now pull
thread downward and from right to left beneath and around thread controller®,
continue to pull thread upward against the pressure of the wire spring into the fork
®, in the thread controller. Guide upward through the point of controller discs®,
and thread guide®, and from right to left through the eye in take-up lever®, down
through thread guide®, again and then through®®® and from left to right through
the eye of th needle ®.
2.After the above threading , hold the end of thread with your left hand, and turn the
machine pulley with your right hand so that bobbin thread may be picked up by
needle thread. And put their ends of thread back through under the presser foot for

REGULATING THE THREAD TENSIONS
For ordinary stitching, the tension of the upper and the lower threads should be equal
so as to lock both threads in the center of the material.
If the tension on either thread is stronger than on the other, imperfect stitching will be the
result. If the tension on the upper thread is greater than that on the lower thread, it will
lie straight along the upper surface of the material.
Tight tension of needle thread
If the tension on the lower thread is greater than that on the upper thread , the lower
thread will lie straight along the underside of the material.
Loose tension of needle thread
l.Tension of the Upper (Needle) thread:
Before adjusting the tension of the upper (needle) thread , be certain that the presser
foot is let down and not in lifted position.
To adjust tension, turn serrated nut (A,Fig. 10)on tension device to the right to increase
tension and to the left if you desire to decrease it.
l.Tension of the Lower (Bobbin) thread:(Fig.9)
The lower (bobbin) thread tension is controlled by the larger screw "A" (Fig. 9) near
the end of the spring at the outside of the bobbin case.
Turning this screw to the right (clockwise) will increase the thread tension, while
turning it to the left (counter-clockwise) will decrease it.
ADJUSTMENT OF THE PRESSURE ON THE MATERIAL (Fig.3)
The pressure of the presser feet is adjusted by the screw (D,Fig.3) with screw driver.
To increase the pressure, turn the screw to the right and to left if you desire to
decrease it.
Adjusting the stitch length (Fig. 12)
While pressing the stopper © ,tum the stitch length dial ®
to the left and right to align the stitch length number with
the reference line on the stopper ®.
* The larger the number, the longer the stitch length will
be .
* When turning the stitch length dial 0 from a larger set
ting to a smaller setting, it will be easier to turn the dial
if the reverse stitching lever(D is pushed to the halfwaydown position.
Fig. 12
From the library of: Superior Sewing Machine & Supply LLC
ADJUSTING THE LIFT OF THE ALTERNATING PRESSER FEET (Fig. 13)
The thickness of the material sewn should control the height of the lift of the altern
ating presser feet.The lift should bejust enough for clearance of the material.
1.With normal adjustment both feed liftto equal height:
To alter lift, loosen the wing nut® and move the link and stud assembly along.the
slot-move up to raise the feeding presser foot and push down to lower this foot.
Tighten wing nut upon completion of adjustment.
However, some materials may require unequal height of lift.
2.When altering the lift of the lifting presser foot (A,Fig.7) unequally against that of
the vibrating presser foot(B,Fig.7)or vice versa,see the instructions
"ADJUSTING THE HEIGHT OF THE PRESSER FEET".

TIMING THE NEEDLE WITH FEED DOG
It is important that the timing relationship between the needle on its downward
stroke and the feed dog movement is maintained at all times. When the scarf of the
needle on the downward stroke reaches the top surface of the feed dog, the feed dog
movement must start.
When adjustment is required , use the following procedure to change the position of
the cam {(D,Fig.17):
I.Open cover plate {®,Fig. 17)and loosen two screws ((2),Fig. 17).
2.Normally put the arrow mark of the cam ((D, Fig.17) on the V ditch ((D, Fig.l7)
of arm shaft ((D,Fig. 17).
3.As fine adjustment,turn the machine pulley to place the needle at 1mm up from its
lowest point and pushing the stitch length regulating lever ( 0, Fig. 12) up and
down, turn the cam ( 0, Fig. 17) and set this at the point both the needle and the
feeder rest.

From the library of: Superior Sewing Machine & Supply LLC
ADJUSTING THE HEIGHT OF THE NEEDLE BAR(Fig. 18)
When the needle bar is at its highest point, normally the measurement between
the surface of the needle plate and the upper end of the needle eye is 22.3mm.
(Fig. 18)
You can also adjust this at its lowest point.In this case,
normally the measurement between the surface of the
needle plate and the upper end of the needle eye is
11mm.
To adjust this, loosen the screw (J,Fig.4)and raise or
lower the needle bar as may be required. Then, tighten
the screw upon completion of adjustment.
NOTE: These measurements are
approximate standard,accordingly, following final adjustments
22.3mm
"TIMING
BETWEEN
THE
HOOK AND THE NEEDLE "
pjg13
are recommended.
TIMING BETWEEN THE HOOK AND THE NEEDLE (Fig. 19)
After setting the needle bar height, set stitch length to minimum, turn the machine
pulley toward you until the needle bar reaches its lowest point.
Continue turning and allow the needle bar to rise about 2mm while on its upward
stroke.With needle bar in this position, the point of the sewing hook should be at the
center of the needle,and normally , the measurement between the hook point and the
upper end of the needle eye should be 2.4mm, further the clearance between the hook
point and the needle hollow should be about 0.05 to 0.1mm.
l.If the sewing hook should not be timed correctly, loosen the three set screw
(K, Fig.5). Turn the hook shaft to align the hook point with the center of the needle.
Re-tighten the three set screws and re-check the timing of the sewing hook.
2.To adjust the clearance between the hook point and the needle hollow, loos
en the two screws(©,Fig.
20) and move the hook to
the right or to the left as
may require. Please note
2.4mm
one of the two screws is

ADJUSTMENT OF BOBBIN CASE OPENER
(THREAD RELEASE FINGER)
The bobbin case opener facilitates the passage of the needle thread loop by slig
htly nudging the bobbin case holder creating a slight rotating movement of same.
This movement at that very instant opens a clearance gap between the notch on
the bobbin case holder and the tab of the hook retainer permitting the needle th
read loop to be drawn easily through the gap.
I) Clearance between the opener and projection of hook (Fig. 20 and 21):
1. Loosen the screw (©, Fig. 20)
2. Adjust the clearance between projection of hook (0, Fig. 21) and the opener
((D, Fig. 21) by means of movement of thread releasing shaft bushing (0,
Fig. 20) to the right or to the left as may be required. The standard cleara
nce between the two parts is 0.8mm as shown Fig. 21.
3. Tighten the screw (®, Fig. 20) securely.
II) Position of the opener cam:
Place the one of screws (0, Fig. 20) which is indicated by "S"on V ditch of the
hook shaft.
III) Adjustment of operation: ( Fig. 20 and 22)
1.Turn the machine pulley until the opener (®, Fig. 22) presses the projection of
hook (d), Fig. 22 ) extremely on its travel.
2. Press the opener to the projection of hook and make the right side clearance
between the notch on the bobbin case
holder and the
tab of the
hook retainer

ADJUSTING THE HEIGHT OF THE PRESSER FEET
1. Adjustment by the presser bar lifter:
Loosen the screw(0, Fig. 23) sufficiently, raise the presser bar lifter and loosen
the set screw (®, Fig. 23) .Move the lifting presser foot (A, Fig. 7) up or down
as may be required so as to get the correct height and tighten the screws.
2. Adjusting the lift of alternating presser feet:
If the height of the lifting presser foot changes, the momentums of the lifting
and vibrating presser foot vary, thus the height of the vibrating presser foot
must be adjusted.
To adjust this, lower the presser bar lifter, holding the vibrating presser foot (B,
Fig. 7) and loosen the hexagon screw (
Fig. 23 ) and move the presser foot
up or down as may be required. After setting the position, tighten the screw.
TIMING OF THE VIBRATING PRESSER FOOT
This is the normal timing when turn the machine pulley toward you, after loweri
ng the presser bar lifter, the vibrating presser foot should reach the feeder earlier
than the needle eye comes to, and when the needle raises , the vibrating presser
foot should leave the feeder after the needle eye has left the feeder.
This is due to the reason that the vibrating presser foot must tightly hold the go
ods while the needle is passing the goods for avoiding irregular stitches.
To adjust this, set the lift of the alternating presser feet to equal, loosen the two
screws (@, Fig. 23) and adjust the rotating position of the cam ((D, Fig. 23) faster
or slower as may be desired, and tighten the screws.

ADJUSTMENT OF THE CLEARANCE BETWEEN FEED FORKED
CONNECTION AND FEED FORK COLLAR
Incorrect clearance between the fork (0, Fig. 17) of feed forked connection and
feed fork collar ((D, Fig. 17) will bring irregular stitch length or overheating, etc.
To ajust this, open the cover plate (®, Fig. 17).
1.To increase the clearance, loosen the screw (®, Fig. 17) and turn the screw (®,
Fig. 17) to the left or counter-clockwise.
2. To decrease the clearance, loosen the screw (®, Fig. 17) and turn the screw (®,
Fig. 17) to the right or clockwise.
This adjustment should be done with turning the machine pulley toward you to
get correct clearance.
Upon completion of adjustment, tighten the screw which is loosened to touch the
feed fork.

ADJUSTING THE THREAD CONTROLLER SPRING
Normally, the thread controller spring ( 0, Fig. 24) should hold slack of the upper
thread until the needle reaches to the goods, and it should pause while raising of
the needle and passing of the upper thread through the bobbin case.
I) For more controller action on the thread:
Loosen the stop screw (©, Fig. 24), move the stop (0, Fig. 24) to the right
(For less action, move it to the left). Tighten the screw.
II) To adjust the tension of the spring:
Loosen the serrated nut (0, Fig. 24) and the screw (®, Fig. 24).
Tum the tension stud (®, Fig. 24) slightly to the left to strengthen the tension
(to lighten the tension, tum to the right) with a screw driver. Tighten the screw
and nut upon completion of adjustment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION ON OILING FOR MODEL 206RB-1
For simplified lubrication the upper arm of the machine is fitted with a centraliz
ed lubricating system . Same is located beneath the ann top cover plate . Swing
open this plate (Fig.l) and a felt-filled reservoir "R" will become visible. Before
operating a new machine or one which has been standing idle for a prolonged pe
riod of time, soak these felt pads with oil until it will be noticed that they have
become fully saturated and do not accept any additional quantities . After that the
only attention required is a shot of oil into the holes in the arm top cover, when
ever the machine is oiled as part of the daily routine.
An oil reservoir for lubrication the rotary sewing hook is provided at the unders
ide of the machine bed. (Fig. n) Unscrew the filler plug and fill the reservoir with
oil until it reaches the red "Full" line. Replace the filler plug and tighten it. The
flow of oil to the hook can be regulated by means of the control valve "V" . To
increase oil flow, loosen the lock nut and turn screw counter-clockwise two or th
ree turns. To reduce oil flow, loosen lock nut and tighten screw clockwise compl
etely and back it off about 3 turns. To stop oil flow, if so required,just tighten
screw. Be sure to tighten lock nut without changing setting of screw.
