[Sewing] Juki straight stitch problem

This is actually a new one to me. At some point recently the throat  
plate on this machine got bent such that the bit with the needle hole  
was 2-3 mm lower than the surface. It was also pitted badly as with  
many hits with a heavy needle. This caused uneven stitching and  
frequent broken threads. Meredith was able to return it almost flat  
with a vise but we could do nothing about the pits.

Cynthia will be buying a new throat plate sometime today but needs to  
take the old one as a model, so for a time the machine will be  
unusable. Installation is just a couple screws so if Apparel City has  
the part in stock it should be available again tonight.
