Zig-Zag Timing
« on: May 30, 2018, 01:57:06 PM »
Anyone have a general rule of thumb for "benchmarks" on timing a zig zag machine?  Have someone with an industrial zig zag that asked for some help, have never had to mess with timing both straight and zig zag timing before.  What timing "points" or "benchmarks" should you time it to?

Follow up:  tinkered with it for a while.  Got it sewing reasonably well at no zigzag, have to increase the tension quite a bit as you increase the size of the zigzag.  Only throws a fit when >10mm zigzag, which they say they will probably never use.  So it seems to be okay for now.  Still would like to know any tips that people have for zigzag machines.
