self_tempering @ 10:35 pm:

As mentioned, I have set up the new machine and have been trying to get the thread to catch again.  I've managed to get the stitching to be fairly regular, but the top thread keeps snapping on me after maybe a dozen stitches.  I've traces the path of the thread and nothing seems to be catching/snagging it, as that tends to be the problem.  So I am wondering if the timing of the mechanisms can somehow affect this, as I have been adjusting the catch mechanism and the depth of the needle shaft [I doubt those are the actual terms, as the machine came with no manual, but I hope I am articulating my point].
...sometimes I wonder if a course in sewing machine repair might be worth while....

oh, and hello :)
