OK, a couple days ago I bragged that my little blue clone was a keeper. Well I've run into a couple problems.
The first is the presser foot shaft spring is too soft. With the adjuster all the way down it's just barely adequate. That I can fix with a stronger spring.
The second is that it will not feed straight. It's not just a little off, it's off enough that I have to fight to keep the fabric from turning in an arch. I can't back tack because it actually changes the angle of the fabric making a different stitch line.
At first I thought it was because the presser foot was out of alignment with the feed dogs. So I aligned them. That has worked before with other machines, but not this time.
I tried several extra presser feet to see if that might make a difference, it didn't.
So, what I need is a few questions answered.
Is there a "how to" source for adjusting the feed dogs on clones?
When you look at the feed dogs from the side, should they be horizontal, or parallel to the needle plate?
I'll be working on this little - HA! machine as time permits. So any help or leads will be appreciated.
