the boss has just taken on an existing business and it has an old 29k71 patcher in it, the patcher has a perfect stitch, the problem is the foot doesn't lift between stitches, also when you lift the handle to raise the presser foot it won't lift unless i use my fingers to lift it up. Anyone able to tell me what could be wrong and also is it an easy enough fix? The boss is talking about buying an electric stitcher, but until he does i was going to try and sort out the old 29k, as i say it has a perfect stitch,

Try undoing the small square length adjuster and see if that cures it, they tend to bend slightly or it may have been put on the wrong way (it is shaped and can only work the correct way)

Check what Peter said first.....Failing that with the foot down slacken off the screw to the left of the picture and move the holder down slightly. You can then adjust the lift from low to high using the wing nut to the right.

it appears to be the top of the needle bar guide( i think that's what the part is) there's a cylinder that appeared loose, so i put a wee bit of super glue on it, and it allows the foot to lift, both with the handle and when i stitch, not perfect, but stitched 2 zips and some other stuff today with it

Oh Derek, Derek Derek Derek,.........I'm sure when Singer manufactured that machine they never thought superglue would be the answer to wear problems....Something is out of adjustment.

i know Gray, i just don't know what it is or how to fix it properly, and as the boss is buying a newer electric patcher, i couldn't give 2 hoots what singer's would think
