We'll learn when and when and how to apply grease to the gears and motor. We'll learn about stitch formation and how to troubleshoot stitching problems. We'll learn to disassemble and reassemble the tension unit to clean and remove corrosion and burrs. We'll learn how to clean the bobbin assembly, remove stuck threads and clear and prevent machine lock-ups. Also how to remove rough spots and deep scratches from the points critical for stitch formation. As time allows we'll learn how to adjust timing and fix other common problems.
