I refinished this cabinet and as long as I had the machine out, I decided to clean it and oil it. Then I tried stitching with it; skipped stitches. I could not get it to sew without skipping stitches. I tried a new needle, a new bobbin and even a new bobbin case and a new hook. It just would not stitch on the zig. And it skipped stitches on the ss as well. Betsy told me it was a timing problem. But I could not figure out how to loosen the hook. So today we had a date to work on timing this machine. When I got to her house and got set to demonstrate the lousy stitches, Betsy reached over and pushed down on the presser foot pressure regulator. Bingo. That will be fifty bucks, ma'am.
So I was planning to sell this machine. Now I love it. See? It's a sickness, it really is.
