STITCH LENGTH CONTROL
The stitch length control controls the forward feeding of
the fabric in ordinary sewing.
At 0, the fabric does not feed at all. With the control
around the red mark for buttonhole, the shortest stitch
is available. At 5 is the longest — about 6 stitches per
inch on ordinary fabrics - but the control may be set at
any desired spot between 0 and 5 for a variety of length,
except when ^tretch stitching ( triple back-and-forth
stitching), the cóntro! should be always at 5. Turn
the control to the left to lengthen and to the right to
shorten the stitch.
The stitch length number you choose is indicated by the
pointer above the control.
The stitch length in stretch stitching (triple back-and-
forth stitching)can not be altered by the control, but it is
fixed about 3/64 inch of trouble-free stretch stitch
length on most kinds of fabrics with the stretch stitch
control iV'S'' and the stitch length control at "5”.
REVERSE PUSH BUTTON
When you wish to sew backward to tie the threads at the beginning or end of a seam
in ordinary sewing, press the Reverse Push Button as far as it will go, so that your
machine sews in reverse at approximately the same stitch length as forward stitch
length. The machine will sew backward as long as the button is held in.
