Practice ... certainly ... but I'll never know what "slipping the clutch" is all about.

I have a servo motor!

I got a bit cocky yesterday, and tried to sew together my sewing machine cover. Well, I did realize that I had to readjust my tensions when I threaded up the machine with the thread I was going to use. What I didn't realize was that it was going to take all flippin afternoon to finally get things dialed in right! I had my top thread getting tangled in the bobbin and things like that. Needless to say, by the time I got everything adjusted, it was time for dinner, and I didn't get the cover made. Remember - I'm flying blind here. I've never done anything like this before. Anyway, now it's all set and ready to make the cover - next weekend.

That wing nut adjustment worked a treat! It is a lot easier to control now, but I am going to go look for a smaller pulley so I don't screw up my clutch - thanks for that info Dan!

Pardon me, Sir - this is the non-gloating section...

LOL! Forgive me.


Adjusting the thread tensions was one of my first "lessons" too, Mark. And, like they tell you in the Auto Interiors books, one of the first things we need to learn is to adjust the thread tensions every time we use different materials.
