    What is your exact problem? Does the upper tension change on it s own? Turning the dial makes no difference? When you lift the pressor foot are the tension

I really enjoy thread painting with these old machines as opposed to the "new plastic wonders". They just fly. Used one at a quilt retreat and the plastic snobs almost had cardiac arrest. It didn't vibrate all over the table, I was able to piece much faster and the small pressure foot helped me make a more precise 1/4 in seam. I like the lever system much better than holding in a plastic button. Would like to find a basic pink one some day....
