Gear box grease

Recommended Posts

Carol:  I don't think so.  As I understand it, the only purpose the grease serves is to dampen the noise the gears make, so there is no maintanence need for it.  When it needs to be done?  Since it's only for noise control, it follows that you'd repack when the machine gets loud from the gear noise.  This is what I know, maybe someone else knows a bit more about it than me, and will have some additional information for you.  Jim

I had to re-pack my gear box when I could no longer hear the stereo while quilting.  Amy sent me the directions and the grease, and all was well.  It's not a "fun" job, but surely makes a difference.

I just flipped the machine upside down while still on the roller - I had to loosen the carriage from the table rails though, but much easier than removing the whole machine?!

How the heck did you do this?  I just can't visualize this.

I have repacked mine while still on the frame, without flipping it upside down.
