  1. here is what mine looks like its a consew 225 would it be the two little screws nearest to the bobbin kinda in the middle of the picture shown here when I pull on the threads the top thread seems a whole lot tighter then bottom should they feel like they have he same tension when pulling back to the left tried tighten the top thread a half a turn now it seems its so tight its pulling my needle to the left and causing the needle to jam up
  2. yes sir I have read it or at least I read that manual. There are so many screws in there I wasn't sure what they were talking about and near the center of the spring if your looking at the picture of the bobbin on pg 3 I see no spring but I will try to adjusting that little screw that holds the piece of steel that the thread goes thru. thanks for your help txag
  3. thank you both txag and piedmont im about 99% sure that I have it threaded right thanks to youtube :-) the problem im having is that if I do have a bobbin tension problem I cant find where to adjust it at. in the manual it says by the screw near the center spring at the outside of the bobbin case can anyone help me out with this?
