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?
