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.
