  1. Thank you SO much. I was actually doing the exact opposite of this and it’s the one thing I never thought to vary. I just sewed a perfect star. Operator error - unsurprising :).
  2. I have been happily sewing on my CB500 for several months now until I needed to tackle a new application; sewing a 5 point star pattern. Every 'external' pivot drops the stitch. 'internal' pivots are never dropped. I've spent many, many hours now trying every conceivable tension adjustment/thread/needle combination I can, to no avail. Can someone please explain to me what it is about the difference between the 'internal' and 'external' pivots causing this? Maybe if I understand this I can resolve it. See pic for clarification.
  3. This looks like it could solve my problem with my cb4500. I’m so impressed! How can I get hold of a set - I’m in the UK?
  4. Great, thanks. I made the adjustments as directed and it all looks much better! I think the back foot needs to come down a bit now though? video . If so, I can do that following your YouTube video. I am very grateful for your help.
  5. Thanks for the reply Wiz. I want to make sure I have understood your description and instructions, before I start loosening things. I have assumed left is as I look at the head from the front. Please see photo.
  6. I am trying to install in-line presser foot set onto my CB4500. I installed the needle foot and the back presser foot okay. The back presser foot position was fine, but I needed to lower the needle foot a little. I loosened the nut to adjust the needle foot. While making this adjustment I heard a clunk, I think the back presser foot dropped a little, and it no longer walks (goes up and down). I am very much a novice so if you think you can help, please pitch your answer accordingly :). I attach a video. I took the face plate off for the video; I assume it’s something in there that needs attention. if the video isn’t accessible, I’m attaching a photo that may help. TIA.
