2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Tension control! You know, in sewing, not in the brain. on: April 20, 2008 07:08:42 AM
Hi!
I'm hoping one of you pro-sewers can help out an amateur.

I inherited a Kenmore model 1941 sewing machine from a studiomate. Seems in decent condition and I mostly understood the extremely vague threading instructions in the manual.

But the sewing is super tight and seems to get kind of stuck in the top tension control disks and the upper thread sometimes breaks. Upon inspection it's unclear where the thread is supposed to actually go through. And maybe that's because the spring guy is in the wrong spot? because maybe two of the
disks should be tucked together when they are currently separated by the spring loop? Don't know.

Here are pictures below. I know it's hard to diagnose from photos but wondered if there were any obviously misplaced bits... Or if you think this looks right:







Any ideas?
Thanks!!!
