Question about Singer 5050 Mechanical Sewing Machine
When I am sewing, the bobbin part of the thread is all tangled and loose on the garmet. I am sewing tee-shirt material.
Similar issue, except my problem is that the thread is balled up and loose, and I can pull out the bobbin thread that is supposed to be sewn in like it's not in time with the machine thread

Check your tension disks, with your presser foot up, and the tension dial on zero. Sometimes a piece of cotton breaks off between the tension disks and then prevents the disks to work properly. Also make sure when you thread the machine, the thread does go through the disks and over the take up lever. After you threaded the machine, before putting the thread through the eye of the needle, lower the presser foot and while pulling on the thread with your left hand, increase the tension with your right hand. Do it slowly and you should feel in difference in tension. If this is the case, your machine should work fine. Also use a ball-point needle on t shirt material. Good luck!
