preference of thread?
Im not having much luck now with the thicker thread. I was using v128 thread and an 18 leather needle on my household dressmaker and i almost finished a whole seat besides where it became four or more layers. The thread is "dabond" polyester i found on ebay...it worked well so i bought some v92 but it unravels very easily. Im having trouble with both threads in the Singer 211. (unraveling and getting hung up just above the needle eye; im making sure i hold the start of the thread to the "one o' clock" direction when i start.
