Motor Number.2

To continue with the first issue of the Brother, a second image of the motor is in order. When the Brother first arrived it was seemingly a simple set up, the first thing that needed to be done was to install a 220V outlet, which would hopefully be enough to power the feed, automatic presser foot lift, and automatic thread trimmer. Unfortunately, this was not the case at all. It took about 3 weeks to finally commit to installing the 220V outlet, which during that time a lot of simple lessons were learned.

The first thing to come to attention was that the machine head did not have an automatic thread trimmer, much time was wasted learning this. The second thing to be revealed was that – considering it is only a straight feed machine – there is no back tack, or bar tack mode, and of course no zig-zag stitch. All of this is fairly uneventful but it brought up a larger question; Why did the Brother DB2-B791-015 head have such an outstanding motor if it would only be able to take advantage of the automatic presser foot lift?

Here is a request which was sent to the Brother;

>>”So how about a close up of your parts drawer. I want to see your foot pedal mod as well!”<<

Here is a “close up” of the drawer, this picture was taken with no modifications done in terms of mediating what may or may not have been in the drawer. It IS the drawer. As for a picture of the “foot pedal mod” which is assumed to be the modifications – and customizations – which were done to the foot pedal assembly after the old motor was replaced, that imagery will have to come at a later date. Here is a rough list of what is living inside the drawer now: Various Presser feet, extra bobbins, extra bobbin case, lighter, loop, high-grade sheers, stubby flat head screw driver (for changing out the presser feet), various threads, fabric pins, a tailors measuring tape. DPx5 needles, rubber bumpers used to shim the head of the machine to sit flatly upon the oil pan, 9/16″ hex wrench for leveling the table, a double sided T style flat head screwdriver (for taking the needle plate [throat plate] on and off), etc.
