Question about Sewing Machines
The standard tension setting for an overlock stitch is the midway point on the dials. This is the factory setting, however, it may be different on each machine due to use and age. Of course, those tension settings will need to change in order to achieve other stitches, ie rolled hem...
HINT: When threading, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disk to make sure the thread is seated securely. AND, be sure to always thread each thread in the order specified in the manual.
You might want to download the Serger Workbooks (below) and work through them. As you do each project, note what settings your machine requires in order to perform each stitch satisfactorily--this will save you a lot of time whenever you want to get a specific stitch.
