BUTTONHOLER (MODELS 415^ AND 426)
On models 415 and 426, the stitch width control knob is
used also for buttonholing. With the control at the red
square mark (1), the machine sews forward on the 'eft
edge of buttonhole with the stitch width of about 1/1 b
inch. At the red square mark (2—4), the buttonhole end
is bartacked about 5/32 inch wide without feeding. At
the red mark (3), the right edge of buttonhole is stitched
in reverse with same about 1/16 inch width as the left
edge of buttonhole.
Therefore, simply by turning^thir control from 1 to 4 in
sequence for every step of fttittonholing, a very fine
buttonhofe of the size about 5/32 inch wide with a
center open cut space of about 2/32 inch is produced.
The stitch length control should be set at the satin stitch
position in the red mark "Bottonhole" there.
