Introduction: TIPS FOR SEWING BIKE INNER TUBE (SEWING MACHINE)

Picture of TIPS FOR SEWING BIKE INNER TUBE (SEWING MACHINE)



here is some important tips to sew inner tube with sewing machine, is just something I learned from do it :

1.put thread tension on higher number (on my sewing machine is 9);
2. put some vegetable oil (a thin thin layer) on the upper (and only on the upper) part of the inner tube you are going to sew to allowed a better running;
3.never pass to many time in the same spot with the needle or it will reap off, use simple stitch, or zigzag, never triple stitch.

Great tips! What sewing machine do you use?

Just a regular one. I just pay really attention not to pull the inner tube in any direction, but just let it move by the machine, so the needle don't break.
