SEWING IN REVERSE
When you wish to sew backward to tie the threads at the beginning or the end of a seam,
press the R button (15, Fig. 1) in as far as it will go. The machine will sew backward as
long as the button is held down.
ADJUSTING THE TENSIONS
Always adjust the upper tension with the presser foot down, as the
tension is released when it is raised. To increase tension on the
upper thread, turn dial (Fig. 14) to the right, or clockwise. To de
crease, turn to the left. The higher the number on the dial, the
the machine is threaded properly.
When necessary to change the bobbin tension, turn small screw
(Fig. 15) on side of the bobbin case clockwise to tighten, counter
clockwise to loosen.
