Machine Maintenance

“But they said it was maintenance free!”

What does that statement really mean in today’s world of electronic and computerized machines? I can tell you all about it.

This class will review common service standards for old mechanical machines like your grandmother had, as well as routine up-keep for today’s state-of-the-art computerized machines.

Learn the service procedures which you, as the user can perform, and what is best left to the professionals.

You will also learn the different shuttle/hook systems, and how to tell if any of the many critical sequences on your machine are “out of time”.

Whether you don’t know a screw driver from a hammer, or you want to perform your own maintenance, this is a class that any sewer will benefit from.

Students are encouraged to bring their own machine for reference.
