341  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Speed Tufting Kit- Ronco on: December 28, 2005 03:14:23 AM
Hi Craftsters, this forum was the only one I could think of that fitted what I was asking, but if I have misplaced it feel free to point it out.  Undecided

I was at an op-shop today and found a speed tufting tool by Ronco still in its box (and for AU$4), but after bringing it home ready to use I can't seem to understand what they are saying in the instructions. I set it all up, and using the wool that comes included attempt to push it though to create the loop. Pushing through is fine, and but I can't seem to extend the looper to its full length while it is on the other side of the fabric. When I pull the looper back and pull the needle out I bring the loop back with me. All I am left with is a great big hole in the Hessian. I am following the instructions and diagrams included, but I must be doing something completely wrong.

At first I thought it may have been my tension, but even after trying to increase it using embroidery frames and the like it doesn't leave the loop behind, though the tension  is still a little loose.

I don't suppose any one who had one of these things in the 1970's, or who has had experience with them, or tufters,  could perhaps tell me where I am going wrong? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, Zeeblebee
