Whenever I try to stitch webbing, I have an issue with a loop being created, which usually wraps around the presser foot. It might run an entire run of two or three inches before it starts happening. I've tried to adjust first the upper tension, then the lower tension, then both, but it still happens. I'm using a 7x3#24 needle, and size 138 bonded polyester pre-lubed thread. I've tried two or three needles of the same size to make sure it's not a bent or burred needle. I thought before I chased my tail anymore, I'd see if there is an easy explanation for this. Jeff It doesn't always wrap around the bobbin case, either. I just found that today. I had noticed the extra thread coming up from the bobbin, but didn't know why, now I do!
Hello everyone, Pretty much a newbie question. Having read up on the various machines that are copies of the Juki , I have come to the conclusion that in many ways they are just as good as the Juki, in some ways, but “not quite there” in terms of overall finish and handling. If I understand the whole “clone thing” the original parts of the Juki are interchangeable with those same parts on the clones. My question then is this, would there be any merrit whatsoever in buying original Juki parts and putting them into say a Cowboy or Cobra to improve the performance of the machine in question, and if so, what parts would you upgrade to original parts? I am working in the assumption that the better parts made in Japan may enhance the Chinese made machines, of course, my question may be naive, so if you think that the Cobra or Cowboy could not be tweaked in order to get a more reliable performance please feel free to chime in. Thanks
