Question about White Sewing Speedylock 1600 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I have a 4 thread speedylock and all of a sudden the threads are no longer looping together. My machine is threaded correctly and I have tried adjusting the tension. What else should I do? FYI repair man said it would cost $150.00 for him to look at it and fix...........
To thread the overlock you start with the inner most looper first, then the outer looper, then the inner most vertical needle and then the outer. This is the order: | | | | #4 #3 #1 #2 You have to ensure that the lower looper (the furthest one out) has the thread going over the slightly higher looper, the first one you did. If you do this you will be making a stitch. To make the loops fall close to the material is simply a case of altering the tensions on all the needles - I have to do this with my wifes machine. Once I have the tensions for her machine I'll be able to pass them on to you although every machine is different it may give you a starting point. I will try and perform this task this weekend - I'll be online next week and perhaps we can chat and I can send you our tension levels. I hope this helps.. my wife sews and I re-thread - she won't go near the inside of the machine and I won't try to sew :) BXL830
