Question about Singer Sewing Machines
My serger is no longer cutting through fabric properly, especially light-weight or knit - it just sort of pulls. I had the blade adjusted about 15 years ago - lowered slightly, if I recall correctly. Do I need to replace the blade or can I adjust it once again? If I need to replace it is this something I can do myself? It is a Singer Ultralock purchased in 1989.
You blade definitely needs replacing. It is something that you could probably do yourself if you paid very close attention to the position of the current blade before removing it and get the new blade lined up exactly the same way. That is the best place to start. Then very carefully turn the hand wheel by hand while the machine is unthreaded. You could even place a piece of fabric under the foot and see if the knife is going to cut the fabric. If all is well and there is no grinding or hitting, you should be good to go.
