Sewing Machine Treddle Adjustment
I'm really surprised at the small amount of travel my treddle has.
First, I noticed this on the instructional DVD that came with my Tacsew: When the tech set up the treddle, it only traveled up and down about 1 inch and that surprised me. But after installing my servo motor yesterday and attaching the pitman arm, and seeing how the treddle only moves 1 inch (up/down), I thought, "This doesn't give you much to play with!"
Naturally, I know nothing at this point and maybe I'll see that this is all you need ... but I'm thinking of extending the arm from the motor and making it 8 inches longer. Then, after mounting the pitman arm on the left side of my treddle, I'd have more like 2 inches of movement, giving me a more gentle and more controlled approach.
What do you guys think about this?
