Question about Brother XR-65t Mechanical Sewing Machine
The stitches my sewing machine is producing are too large on the bottom making me think the bottom tension is out ... because I have lost the manual and it is an old machine I'm not sure which way to turn the screw down the bottom to tighten - does anyone know which way to turn the screw?
Hi Quinny1420...If you are certain that it is a tension issue, first ensure that your upper threading is correctly inserted/passing through the upper tension discs, and the general upper tension starting point is between 3.5 and 5.5. Increase the upper tension to pull up loose stitching on the bottom. Last resort is to alter your bobbin tension. Clockwise to increase, and counter-clockwise to decrease. Turns should only be made in 1/5 increments between test sews.....Please update your post of your progress...good luck my friend
