    Feed Dog Tracks on Techsew 2750

    Thanks for the suggestion, kgg. No, I didn’t even give it a thought. I’ll give that a shot.

    Feed Dog Tracks on Techsew 2750

    Thanks for the response, Floyd. I had expected this would be an issue others have had to deal with frequently and wondered if it was just something I was doing incorrectly. I will check to see if there are other dog options available with less aggressive teeth. Presumably, there is a point where the less aggressive approach would result in less predictable feed rate. Thanks, again, for the quick feedback.
  3. (I’m both a new leatherworker and a new sewing machine user so be careful not to underestimate my ignorance of either!) I purchased a Techsew 2750 before Christmas and have had a lot of fun creating a few handbags and smaller items with thinner leather. My problem, at this point, is that I want to sew thicker leather - for example, sewing two 1/8” thick pieces of veg-tanned leather - where both sides of the leather will be visible. When I do, the stitching seems satisfactory on both sides. However, the feed dog leaves fairly aggressive marks on the underside. And the presser foot leaves slight tracking on the upper side. I assume I can reduce the presser foot marks by reducing the presser foot pressure. But I haven’t figured out a way to reduce the dog feed impressions on the other side. Is this possible? Or do I need to learn to live with it?
