Question about Juki DDL-8700
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.

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.
