Another Imperial question
- Thanks to all who have helped me out. I now have the tension unit
attach to the machine and it seems to be working correctly. I also
got a suprise this morning when I found that my husband had added a
piece of electrical cord to the pedal. So my machine is now up and
Now for my new questions.
1. The stitch length seems to vary with how fast I sew. The faster I
go the shorter the stitch. If I can keep to a medium speed the stitch
seems to be fine. I am hoping to use this machine to sew seams that
are 5 feet long and rolled hems that are up to 5 yards long, so I
would really like to sew much faster than that. Is there something
that should be cleaned or oiled in the stitch length control?
2. The tension isn't right yet and I think the problem is with the
bobbin tension. It is set so tight that the thread will hardly even
pull through the opening. I had dusted it out and before I start
adjustin to much I am wondering if there is a basic settion of the
screw that I should know about.
Again I say thanks
