Hi & welcome from Texas. I found a couple of sites that might help you. One is how to use the Towa bobbin tension gauge & the other is from Superior Threads that is a Towa Tension Gauge Reference Guide. The guide doesn't show Glide thread on it but maybe this will help you some.

Welcome from Ontario, Canada. I think Jamie Walen from the Quilters Apothecary has a YouTube video on bobbin tension.
