When writing emails, I often ended it with "thank you in advance". Even more, I used to have it in my signature for a certain time (mea culpa).
However, recently I've been told that it is not appropriate or even rude.
I checked on the Web and found some links (1), (2) that confirm this point.
There's also a discussion at ELU on this matter.
Instead of "thank you in advance", they usually suggest something like "I appreciate any help that you can provide" or "I will be grateful if you can..."
OTOH, in my native language there are two distinct types of appreciation: appreciation "after" is merely like English "thank you", but appreciation "before" can be translated something like "let the divine providence be with you" or "...give you power (to do what I'm asking)", or, simply speaking (not very accurate, though), "bless you (to do what I'm asking)".
I'm trying to combine both things, i.e. avoid using "thank you in advance" and preserve the meaning of above. Is it possible?

  1. "Thank you ... "
  2. "Thank you for any help you can offer ... "
  3. "Gratefully, [your name] ... "
  4. "Thanks for considering this ... "
  5. "In any case, thanks for your help ... "
  6. "Many thanks ... "
  7. "Let me know if this isn't feasible by [date], and I'll see what I can do ... "
  8. "I hope this is possible ... "
  9. "Really appreciate your time here ... "
  10. "In the meantime, thanks for your time ... "
  11. "Thank you for doing X ... "
  12. "Looking forward to [discussing the results, talking about what you find, learning more about X] ... "
  13. "I'd be grateful if you could finish X by [date] ... "
  14. "You're the best ... "
  15. "Thanks again ... "
  16. "Thank you for your understanding ... "
  17. "I appreciate your extra time here ... "
  18. "I know your time is valuable and I appreciate your attention ... "
  19. "Let me know if I can help ... "

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Whether you're writing to a colleague or direct report, use these "thanks in advance" alternatives to thank them for their consideration.
1. "Thank you ... " For a simple, gracious close that won't offend anyone, sign off with "Thank you."
2. "Thank you for any help you can offer ... " Show appreciation for your recipient's time and energy with this ending. It translates to "Even if you can't help, I appreciate your effort."
3. "Gratefully, [your name] ... " Use this alternative when your ask is slightly out-of-the-ordinary: You're giving the person less time than ideal, increasing the scope of your original request, or pulling them into a project they're not a part of.
4. "Thanks for considering this ... " With this sign-off, you say, "Hey, it means something you're even thinking of doing this." Revealing a little humility can help you win the other person to your cause.
5. "In any case, thanks for your help ... " After you've made your request, end with this tactful line. You're essentially telling the other person, "Whether you agree or not, I value your consideration."
6. "Many thanks ... " This variation on the classic "thank you" is a bit more formal, making it feel more authentic.
Below is a sample email using one of these alternatives. It clearly states the request, and thanks the recipient for their consideration.
Hi Tim,
We're holding a holiday fundraiser for the children's hospital on December 5th. Our team will be managing the bake sale and I still need volunteers to cover a few more shifts at the bake sale table.
If you're available on December 5th from 5:30 PM to 600 PM or 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM, your help would be much appreciated. I've attached the sign-up form below where you can pick your shift.
Thank you for any help you can offer.
-- Peter

Thank you in advance for your help.

These "thank you in advance" alternatives can be used when you're requesting help or previously requested assistance from the recipient.
7. "Let me know if this isn't feasible by [date], and I'll see what I can do ... " I'd recommend saving this sign-off for a direct report. It's clear your recipient can't really say no to whatever you've asked -- at most, you'll let them negotiate the deadline. And you're suggesting even that option isn't ideal.
Why is this better than "Thanks in advance"? Because it's straightforward and direct, while "thanks in advance" feels inauthentic and/or passive-aggressive.
8. "I hope this is possible ... " #8 is an alternative to #7, but for someone who's your peer or superior. It's softer and leaves more room for pushback.
9. "Really appreciate your time here ... " Are you telling, not asking? When the other person doesn't have a choice in the matter, you want to avoid closes that make them sound like they can opt out. This close is a polite but firm way to say "You have to do this" that won't annoy them.
10. "In the meantime, thanks for your time ... " Let your recipient know you recognize their attention.
11. "Thank you for doing X ... " Explicitly acknowledge the help they're providing, whether that's "thanks for meeting with me," "thanks for reviewing this proposal," "thanks for introducing me to so-and-so," or "thanks for answering these questions."
12. "Looking forward to [discussing the results, talking about what you find, learning more about X] ... " When you're asking someone to do some work on your behalf, this close comes in handy. You're showing your interest in the project -- validating that it's worth their effort.
13. "I'd be grateful if you could finish X by [date] ... " Tactfully give the person a timeline with this sign-off.
14. "You're the best ... " When you're emailing a close colleague who's doing you a favor, use this heartfelt closing line. (Just make sure you save it for special occasions, or you'll seem fake.)
15. "Thanks again ... " Did you already thank your recipient once? No harm in reiterating the sentiment.
16. "Thank you for your understanding ... " Sometimes, it's necessary to appeal to your recipient's compassionate side. Maybe you're asking for something you know they're not thrilled about -- or giving them the heads up you can't follow through on their request.
They'll have a harder time denying you after you've expressly said thanks for their patience.
17. "I appreciate your extra time here ... " Don't we all just want to be appreciated? Sometimes, all it takes to move someone to action is to let them know you notice them and their efforts and to thank them for spending their time on you.
18. "I know your time is valuable and I appreciate your attention ... " Again, letting your prospect know you realize they're carving out time especially for you is always appreciated. They don't have to help you out, and it's a good idea to recognize that.
19. "Let me know if I can help ... " Is there something you could do to make this ask easier for your prospect? Try to take these actions proactively, and always let them know you're happy to step in and shoulder some of the work.
Here's an example email using a "thanks in advance" alternative.

SOURCE: Needle hitting metal casing .. Singer Futura CE 200

It happend to me aswell , not getting the source of the problem!
Then I noticed that the bobbin casing was out of the original position, take the whole casing out and make sure that when you put it back that the small metal tension loop at the front side on the right is correct, this image you can see in your handbook, (placement of the bobbin casing)

Yep, it's out of time. Take it in for service. Ask for cleaning, lubing and re-timing. Otherwise they will just time it and if it is dirty and dry... it may just fall out of time again.

Also remember you can never turn the hand wheel backwards to the way it is intended to go... that causes this issue in some machines.

First of all, change to a new needle. Make sure you are using correct needle and have inserted it all the way into needle clamp and that you have it in correctly (flat side should be away from you). If this does not correct the problem, then hook to needle timing is off and will need to be adjusted by technician.

Needle hits bobbin casing.


Don't know if you have a manual or not. You can read the manual from the link below. I would look for the bobbin area in the manual. There should be a section showing the bobbin area for cleaning and oiling. It may as simple as removing and reassembling the bobbin case.
It could be the timing and would require a service repair technician.

Riccar Super Strech E21129 364J breaking needles


I believe the number you provided was a serial number and not a model number. When I searched for Riccar Super Stretch it came up with "model 510"

Here's the manual for that just in case it's close enough to your machine that you can get it threaded and such.
http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/510-Owners-Manual.pdf

To check the timing of any machine.

Make sure the needle is oriented the way it's supposed to be. Then open the bobbin area so you can see the shuttle hook and needle. (this may mean taking both the bobbin cover off and the throat plate where the feed dogs are)
Turn the wheel by hand until you see that the needle is at it's lowest point of travel. At this point the shuttle hook's point should just be ready to pass the needle scarf. If it is back away from it too far... it is "********"... if it has moved past the scarf it is "advanced." In either of those two positions it needs to be timed. Since I am not familiar with the inner workings of your machine I can't advise you on how to correct timing issues... but if you are a logical, observant and methodical mechanically inclined person, you might see how by really examining the machine. (it may be as simple as loosing a screw or bolt and moving the the shuttle/shuttle race) Take your time and be sure to remember where things go... take pictures if you need to.

Now...Other reasons for breaking of needles are as follows:
Incorrect needle for project. such as sewing denim with a silk or lightweight material needle.

Top tension too tight.

Incorrect threading of the upper threads.

Damaged shuttle or needle plates.

The presser foot improperly installed or wrong foot completely.

Needle positioned incorrectly for presser foot.

Good luck.

What size sewing needles and brand are right for my riccar 2600 model?


It should tell you in the owners manual.
http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/2600-Owners-Manual.pdf
Most needles are suitable for all machines. The size of the needle depends on the thickness of the material you are trying to sew. Usually the finer the material, the smaller the needle.

Needle is hitting the round , turning case that revolves around the bobbin


It sounds like your timing is off because what you're describing is exactly what happened to me last summer. I took it to a sewing machine repair shop and they repaired the problems, gave it a nice cleaning and it was like new when it came home. But it took two weeks (not a lot of repair shops around here) and that was torture as it's my only machine!!! :)

RICCAR MODEL 210B


I have a Riccar 210B sewing machine. It is about 37 years old. I have been the only owner and up to yesterday it was working fine. Today the motor seems to have quit.

Is the motor repairable? The tag on the motor says YM-40 80W 115V.

Thank you, Susan in Kailua-Kona HI
