  1. I think I got it!!! I adjusted the hook position, and re adjusted the hook latch. Better but still skipping. Upped the needle size. Still skipped, watched the functions very closely... I had put on a new foot it seemed to contact you the needle. Put on the old center foot VOLA! full 8” runs 20+ times without a hitch may widen the hole on new center foot or it may be too tall, all I know is it’s working great now w/ old center foot and new outer foot Thanks for all y’all help, and I hope this helps someone else too
  2. I cross referenced the spacing with the consew and Juki manual. That is definitely something I have not checked, and that seems like it very easy adjustment. The machine is running great and smooth. It’s just that In about a 10-15 inch run it will skip 1 to 2 stitches. Additionally it’s good information to know that if you change the needle significantly, you need to change the hook position. When I bought the machine it had a very large needle in it probably 20+ I downsize the needle to between 16 and 18 and that could’ve easily thrown that off. I also think that my needle guard washer is not properly Adjusted. I will definitely post results so as to help anyone else
  3. I have manuals; PDFs from internet. Don’t have the rig marks on the needle bar, but from what I’ve adjusted it seems correct. Your link is not working. i think the hook needle spacing sounds like a good place to check. Changed needle size so seems reasonable thanks and I’ll post results
