She has recently been oiled, cleaned, and needle changed due to the fact that the
tension nob fell off (It took doing all of that, an awesome unofficial mechanic, an ancient sewing guru, and myself just to figure out it was loose in the first place
). So all of that was fixed and she worked for a while but now ( a poppet head and three limbs later) no matter how I adjust the tension it's either extremely loose or it gets all knotty but only sometimes and no one knows why.
I think she was cursed by some vengeful hippie spirit since mum bought it around that time in a yard sale and my sewing guru never has problems with it but I figured I'd ask the wonderful people here first. A rather long explanation just to ask about sometimes wonky tension but I'm feeling a bit ticked.
THANK YOU so much I'm hoping I just have to re-thread it. If not Pink Floyd here I come.
