Re-doing -

The re-do - 
It feels like I'm back at square one - again - 
The tension is STILL wonky - 
On my Imperial Bargello
The YELLOW pokies don't look that bad -  
But the BLACK bobbin thread is STILL just sitting there - 
I've tightened the top tension in a couple of "full" turns - 

And a few "quarter" turns of the dial -

And STILL have tension problems - 
I didn't have much time to play with it  today - 
So I'll play with it more tomorrow - 
And start over AGAIN - 
Set the bobbin tension with the "drop test" - 
See what the TOWA gauge reads - 
Then adjust the top tension - 
Ignoring the number on the dial - 
I have a preconceived notion of what that number should be - 
And that's probably part of my problem - 
It doesn't really matter WHAT the number is - 
If the tension is good - 
And if the top tension gets too tight - 
I'll loosen the bobbin tension a little - 
And start over - again -
Or maybe it's time to change the needle - again - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Oh my, that would frustrate me to no end. I hope you get the tension sorted out.

Oh boy. You sound way calmer than I would be, but I suppose you can edit out the frustration. Make sure everything is threaded properly. Seems like a no brainier there, but always good to check the easy stuff first!

I hate tension issues. On my new machine, I have not mastered it yet. It is good in spurts.
