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.

SOURCE: HOW TO THREAD
Go to www.reliablecorporation.com. Under products check out the MSK555 blindhem machine. It is the same as the Rex 518. To the right of the page is a category to download the manual. It is very helpful. I have the Rex518 with the original instructional manual, but the translation into English was very poor. The MSK555 is published so you can understand the manual, and figure out how to use your machine. I too am a first time user of a blind hemming machine.

In general, there are three main causes for this...
wrong needles (Singer), low quality thread (dual duty or all purpose), incorrect threading. Be sure to thread the needle from front to back.

I wanted to turn my daughters old jeans into shorts since they still fit, but were too short. I was having the same problem, but I was able to make some progress. I switched the thread from a poly/cotton blend to 100% polyester and it was a big improvement. I still was unable to stitch through seams. I am going to try a more heavy duty polyester thread and an upholstery needle (18/110).

Remember that early Singer machines would only sew properly with number 40 or 50 mercerised thread, anything else and all sorts of things happen, top tension should be about 4 or 5
