Irregular stitch length on heavy materials

I have a Juki DL 8700.
When sewing orthotic (double) leather straps which in part includes foam in between leather, bogs done stitch creating very unsightly work, I set stitch length to 4.5 but when sewing over irregular thickness (foam pad) feed dogs tear up leather and shorten stitch length to appox 05 - ugly! Only happens on 2 layers the leather and foam part of the strap.

Thank you
Sharon (sewer)

SOURCE: skip stitch

The three most obvious causes (other than that of the machine possibly being slightly out of time) are:

1) Too small of a needle size - increase the size.

2) A needle that has a flaw / defect - change the needle.

3) Needle not inserted correctly, either not pushed all the way up into the needle bar, or not installed facing the correct place. On this machine, the small "scarf" in the needle (an indent just above the eye) shouldface the right side of the machine.

SLIGHTLY unscrew the large screw in the center of the stitch length knob, turn the knob to the right several clicks and retighten the screw. DON'T take it completely out, or you will make more work for your self.

Irregular stitches


If you mean irregular length it may be the arm that holds the feed teeth ha sworked loose slightly to see if this is it the faster you go on a max stitch length the shorter it gets. If this is the case tilt the machine head back and see were the arm is fixed at the rear sholud be 2 screws that go on to a long arm running the length of the machine and make sure these are tight. This should help.

Problems when sewing over heavy jean hems


Are you using the correct type of needle? have a word with your needle supplier and explain the problem. Different threads and different thickness material need different top and bottom tension adjustments.
Can I suggest sew one thickness material at a time with tension adjustments for that thickness. Then change the tensions and do a batch of thicker material.
