    Does anyone have this machine? I would like to know if I can adjust the pressure on the pressure foot. Can't find a knob or anything in the manual.

    Don't know about that particular model. I have the 68, the only speed control on it is on the front of the machine.

    It is a great machine, mine is designated for my daughter. We have 3 sons and 1 daughter so no problem there.

    I think that most machines that allow adjustment of presser foot pressure have it as a knob at the top left of the machine, basically above the rod that raises and lowers the presser foot. If you have this kind of knob, it is usually a screw type which I assume follows the "righty tighty" rule. I have seen this kind of thing on older machines I have fixed up for a local non-profit. Still think it's really strange that my expensive Bernina 1230 does not have an adjustment for presser foot pressure!

    No knob on the top or side. I am wondering if it needs to be opened up. My needle was a little off center the last time I had it serviced and they just opened it up and reset it. Will ask next time I go to the shop.
