TENSION POSITION NUMBER
For many years sewing people were of the opinion that all sewing
machines had one and the same tension position numbered setting
for normal sewing on a light or medium fabric and using a number
50 mercerized cotton thread.
Actually, this is not true; whether the same style machine, the
same manufacturer - the tension numbered position varies for a
range of 2 to 6 for normal sewing.
We find that your sewing machine, fro normal sewing, will perform
best when set at #4_. For zig zag patterns, use #______.

This was found in a FW case I recently bought. I thought everyone else might enjoy.
I hope the photo shows up but if not I typed it in like it was.
