Question about Juki DDL-8700
I use a Juki DDL-8700 for hemming jeans. When I get to the inseam where the material is super thick, the needle often breaks, bends or the thread breaks. What should I do so this doesn't happen?
Needle too small u need size 21 needle. screw down the presser foot tension too. if u can't fix it use hand wheel and go thru heavy part by hand.

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.
