Sewing Machine Bernina 1080 | Bernina 1070 | Bernina 1090 | Bernina 1230

In this post, the test model is Bernina 1080 calypso, this prefix "calypso" I'm not sure what it means, I guess some special serie, it's mostly about identical models except that "calypso" has a front control plate in some way decorated in several colors. The Bernina 1080 and Bernina 1090 sewing machines are very similar, the difference is minimal. Bernina 1090 has an accessory for lifting the foot (knee lifter) and from the stitches it has an accessory as an imitation of hand sewing. The rest is more or less the same. To return to the 1080 model, it is computer-controlled ...
a machine with about 40 basic stitches, with the possibility of combining them with memorizing the program of your choice. The construction of the machine is robust, the machine is completely metal, except for the side and rear larger covers, which are plastic. The sewing is maximally simplified and it is not particularly complicated at all, in fact, it is easier to select a program than on classic machines, just a light press on the micro switch and a new program is set, the program that is in function is marked with a light (LED).

In the pictures, individual positions are marked, so let's see what they are used for:
Second picture, position P - programmer switch (basic and decorative stitches), P1 - appearance of the selected stitch, N - button for positioning the needle (left-right), Z - upper thread tensioner, M - lower thread winder, note: turning on the winder the needle - machine automatically stops working, pay attention, it may happen that the machine will not work because the winder is on, the winder motor is almost inaudible, A - reverse sewing button, C-stitch width adjustment (zigzag) , K -stitch length regulator.

Special table marked with numbers: 1 -foot, 2 -needle positioner (inside or outside the material) 3 -slow or faster machine operation, 4 -constant sewing backwards, 5 -start and end of selected programs when storing, 6 -inverted stitch appearance (mirror ), 7 -holes for buttons, 8-9 -regulator stretch and decorative stitches, 10 -memory and 11 -deleting memory.
The following figure and some positions on the side and back: Tr-
off / on lower material transport (feed dog), Pr -main switch of the machine, Os -light switch, V1 and V2 access for screws and removal of the plastic cover when maintaining the drive part gshuttle hook. The machine transfer handle has a thread guide that is used if you have large cones, simply place the thread behind the machine and thread the beginning through the guide located on the handle. The precision of making stitches and sewing is excellent, also the dosing of the speed with the pedal is without error, the electric motor is of the Bosch type, the transmission is by ...

two belts, in addition to a double belt drive, there is additional electronics that increase the maximum needle prick even at the lowest speed. The machine sews everything, of course it should be protected from excessive and unnecessary large loads.
Maintenance at Bernine 1080 comes down to cleaning and lubricating the shuttle hook and the part under the needle plate. Remove the needle plate as follows, remove the needle and presser foot, remove the shuttle and bobbin, lift the front end of the plate and push it back. Occasionally add a few drops of oil to the shuttle hook, do not overdo it unnecessarily. For internal lubrication of the machine, it is necessary to remove the complete back and side cover, it is not complicated, if necessary, we will explain it like anything else through questions and comments...
Unfortunately one of the images is permanently lost.

    Može li se bernina 1080 podmazivati kroz dio gdje je"skakavac",vidi se kroz prorez iglenjača?

  2. Znam na što mislite,naravno da može,možete na pumpicu sa uljem dodati i neki produžetak tanke cjevčice da imate bolji pristup,po nekoliko kapi sa gornje strane bit će sasvim dovoljno.
    Na trećoj slici možete skinuti i poklopac,odvidi vijke V1/V2 i podmazati pokretač grajfera a samu osovinicu grajfera sa prednje strane na mjestu centralnog priteznog vijka.
