The Tacsew T500 industrial sewing machine is the only portable blindstitch machine we have made in Taiwan where quality standards are high. All other copies of the Tacsew T500 are manufactured in China under other labels, such as Artisan, Consew, Supreme, Rex, Ricoma and Yamata. Tacsew now has their own Chinese blindstitch as the Blindstitcher BLST-1.
Re: Single Thread Portable or Power Stand BlindStitch Hemming Machines:
When I pull the stitching out, several stitches unravel along with it. Is there a way to tack the stitches to prevent unraveling?
Jenna, there are several ways of securing a blind hem stitch at the end of a seam. The easiest way is to sew over and beyond the end of a seam, especially if hemming a tubular item like pants. When you sew over previous stitching it helps to lock the stitches in.
Before you remove fabric from the end of the machine feeder, turn the hand wheel clockwise to swing the needle all the way to the left position in the needle channel which will help secure the thread and stitch in place. Then quickly pull or jerk the fabric hem from behind the feeder which will break the thread and tie off the chain stitch so that it will not continue to unravel. It takes some practice because you may have to use the knee lever or hand wheel to position or release the fabric if it is not already at the end of the feeder.
You can also turn the hand wheel counterclockwise at the end of the seam (like reverse stitching but no formation) just to hide the end stitches, or you can manually weave the unraveled thread back into the chainstitch with a seaming needle.

The Tacsew T500 seems to be the closest in comparison to the TBH Bilind Hemmer I ordered, but it's portable, like many of the machines listed: U.S.Stitch Line SL78-2, Chandler CM101, Singer 7SS, Tacsew T718-SS-2, which one do you recommend? Martha.

Tacony Babylock discontinued the BL101, BH600 The Blindhemmer is that it cost to much to make for just a 10 pound machine that would only handle lighter weight fabrics. The Tacony Tacsew T500 is the best portable blindstitch machine because it is made in the original factory in Taiwan, and not in China where all the other clones are made. It suitable for all apparel fabrics from light to medium. We do not recommend blindstitch machines for heavy weight fabrics or thread.

Help!
I am breaking a lot of needles and the tension is getting too tight on its own while stitching and causing the thread to break. I am learning the machine for two weeks. Is it so sensitive too wools, cottons, and fleece that this would make such a major difference in the stitching - breaking needles, breaking thread? Kay

It may not be tension that is causing the problem with your portable blindstitch. If you have broken needles it has probably left some needle burrs in the thread and needle path that need polishing off with fine emory cloth (crocus) before sewing again.

Start with a new LWx6T needle without thread or fabric. Watch the needle as you turn the hand wheel. If there is needle deflection, reduce the penetration dial until there is no needle movement. If there is needle deflection caused by burrs, they must be polished off. Check the looper tip and two arms for any needle burrs and polish off. If there is needle deflection caused by the needle track lifting the needle, lower the track very slightly with the screws on the side of the black metal bracket above the needle.

Finally, Back off on the tension dial and retighten while you are sewing with a light strong thread and light to medium weight fabric, until you get the correct tension without loops. If tension is too tight it will push the thread up so it is not all the way down between the tension discs where it belongs. JMD

I can't understand how to finish off at the end. It
always unravels. I have read the manual and it seems simple but I
apparently just "don't get it." Any help would be appreciated. Sincerely,
Kim C
Kim, at the end of the blindhem seam, position the needle all the way to the
left, then use the knee lift to remove the fabric and jerk on the fabric at
the same time. That will tie off the tread and break the thread at the
needle without bending the needle. You can weave the thread tail back into
the stitches or cut it off. Before the above procedure, you could also turn the handwheel
counterclockwise for a few stitches, then come back to the end of the seam
and repeat the first procedure above. Let me know what works for you.
Thanks. John Douthat, owner and tech

Coming through the tension discs...does the thread lay on top or come up underneath the discs? OVER THE TOP, BUT UNDER THE BAR PIN IN BACK OF THE TENSION DISCS (TO KEEP THE THREAD FROM COMING OUT OF THE TENSION DISCS). John.
Thank you John. I didn't get the under the bar part before.
I was able to hem my new blouse without a hitch. I love this little machine!Barbara

I am very happy with all. Shipping was faster than expected! Thank you!

Melanie, Texas
Very timely service and product arrived in perfect condition. I have already used it several times and I am quite pleased.

Irene, Florida
I just received your Tac-Sew industrial blind hemmer. It is a wonderful addition to my sewing equipment and just a pleasure to use. I hesitated for the first few days, finishing Christmas gifts and getting ready for the big day. I set it up, having read the booklet, and within a few minutes did my test sew. Wow, I was thrilled to see the hem. The machine is so quiet and just wonderful to work with. I used the machine to hem two dresses I had made for my niece and granddaughter.... my sister and daughter both loved the hemmed edge. I also did receive my additional 50 needles and am very pleased with your service. Thank you. Happy New Year!

David, Bermuda
You have excellent dedicated staff it was a pleasure to buy from you.

Kathy, Illinois
As I have never used a blind hemmer before I found the manual lacking in details of how to use the machinee proplerly. I know it takes practice, which I am now starting to do.

Kathleen O., Exton, PA
Best price and quick shipment. I am delighted

Caryn Purdy, South Lyon MI
You are the best. Many quality products hard to find elsewhere. Best price w/ free shipping on most products. Love, Love, Love the Tacsew blind hemmer purchased a couple of years ago. Have guided many sewing friends to your site for sewing needs. Especially love your explanation of what products can be expected to do. That blind hemmer alone has saved literally over a thousand dollars in alteration expenses for my kids high school band program. Thank you.

Darrell O, Aurora ILL
Re:Product quality. This is really based on getting what you pay for. I appreciate the willingness of your customer service rep in specifying which manufacturer offers the best quality. Although I found the same T-500 at the same price in a number of places, I bought from the one who was the most forthright.

Caryn, South Lyon, MI

I searched literally for days online and in sewing machine stores. Your site came up in every online search. You had the best selection and the best pricing - especially including the needles - which are not universally available -in the package along with free shipping. It arrived when promised in perfect condition - packaged very well. I am now using it furiously hemming 160+ pairs of pants for the high school marching band. Thank you!!!

Robert,

My wife just recieved her Tacsew T500 today by UPS, so far she tested it and said it worked great. You customer service was very helpful on the phone when I required about the Tacsew T500. Alex your Technician was very experienced in his field & want to Thank him for advising us on our right choice of blindstitch hemmer sewing machine to buy for my wifes needs. We are very pleased with your service so far & will purchase again from allbrands.com. Thanks again, keep up the good work.

Lyle and Heidi Johnson,

December 12, 2000 I wanted to thank you for the very professional way you handled our order. It is nice that someone selling over the Internet provides this kind of personal service. We received our TacSew 500 in 3 days and it is fantastic. We had a little trepidation when we ordered because it is a major purchase for us. Heidi's little sewing room consists of 2 sergers, 2 Bernina sewing machines and an old Domestic we picked up at a garage sale for tacking and straight line stitching. This machine has saved, already, a great deal of time because it does a beautiful job hemming. Still have to learn to run it for sheers but made tiebacks and they look good. Thank you for your quick service and for the needles you put in at the last minute that I had forgotten to order.

Anita Hein, Canada

October, 1999 I bought a Tacsew Blind hemmer from AllBrands in October, 1999. I was leary of using the credit card on the Internet so I called the 800 number. It was simple fast (yay Melanie) and I am very happy with my purchase. I should also mention I am Canadian and even with the exchange and shipping, I still saved over $800! I'm now interested in a babylock serger... Thanks!
