I talked with billy, and he's coming to fix it again on Friday at 5.  He
said that probably it broke because too much fabric was fed into it, and
I said I didn't think you were doing any such thing but I would ask
about it.  When the looper broke, was the serged fabric in the feed dogs
at the time particularly bulky?  he said that seams in denim (6-8 layers
of denim) is too much.  I plan to get more detail on his ideas of the
machine's limitations on friday.  We didn't discuss payment at all yet.
