I have a 29-4 Singer, but I'm experiencing problems with it not picking up.  I wonder if anyone has any tips for fixing the issue?

 

I understand that it could be a timing issue, is that a problem that can develop with use?

 

I'm thinking it might be the thread and needle combination.  I noticed if I reduced the needle size the problem improved a bit but still dropped every third or fourth stitch.

 

I'm thinking about whether to get someone out to look at it but, haven't a clue who or at what cost!

Theres is a small grub screw in the side of the bobbin casement, you'll see a cut out and when you turn the machine the little screw comes into view in a certain position..... make sure this screw has not come lose, as this will cause that problem.

try a different thread and check the bobbin and the base where the bobbin sits are nice and clean.

give the area a little blow out with an air gun etc.
