Cool. Thanks for the update. If you had it set on 12 you really did have a lot more speed at your disposal. Sounds good. Looking forward to getting my pulley. I also have been playing with mine. Almost finished a cover for the machine. Installed welt around it just for grins. There is an area where I have not sewn tight enough to the welt and the threads show. I will be able to go back over it and tighten it up but was disappointed that I was going to have to "fix" it. I am using some cheap really heavy material to play with. The 1/4 inch welt foot is probably a little small for the assembly process since this material is so thick. Post us a picture when you finish.
