Threaded View
Greetings ... I have an old SEW-MOR that usually works great ... however, I
changed thread recently to a heavy weight. The bobin tension is "firm" but
not tight.  I loosened it but it was too loose so I tightened it again to
the original tension. I increased the the upper thread tension and that
helped a bit but it's still not perfect.

Any thoughts?

thanks! wendy

Wendy,

Have you considered changing your bobbin tension?

This is new to me, but I have heard it can help
