The tension applied to the bobbin thread has been reduced and the needle thread path has been thoroughly renovated to achieve highly consistent feed of the needle thread. Puckering, stitch skipping, thread breakage and isolated idling loops can be therefore prevented, enabling the machine to produce beautifully finished seams with consistency.
After the gauge has been replaced, the machine can be adapted to the newly installed gauge only by adjusting the clearance provided between the blade point of the hook and the needle. In this case, it is not necessary to change the hook timing in accordance with the gauge. As a result, the length of time required to replace the gauge is dramatically reduced.
