If the tension on your serger is giving you headaches, it may be time to floss!
After my last post about my pain in the butt serger I did manage to get my little stitch finger glued back on and working properly - but I was still fighting with the tension on the left needle. Ugh!
After screwing with the dial for a million hours and going through a million yards of fabric just to "test" the settings, I had a total "duh!" moment. ...maybe there's thread, dust, or something caught up in there and irritating it.
(kinda like when you get a raspberry seed stuck between your back teeth, right?)
Sooo, I ran some dental floss back and forth through the tension disks,
(hey, it works on raspberry seeds...)
Voila! No more Tension Headaches!!
Seriously - check out these before and after pics and you'll see why we were constantly battling:
So, for now we are getting along. But I won't hold my breath...
