I agree with salvage but tell guys your using old stuff or recycled material in their seat and let me know the reaction you get. I have tried this before ha ha
@John Miller , Aside from wheels this may be one of the biggest challenges even for a seasoned trimmer. I admire you for wanting to challenge this.
@Adam12 , has to be a material problem don't you think like that slick nylon. The guy was cruising along well until this that is great advice!
Clearly a tension issue and may related to that fabric itself. Try a strip of vinyl binding and see if it does the same thing also reverse it put vinyl on place of the black webbing and see what happens. Dont mess with the machine just yet.
@souperdoo , you are right! It is probably in that carpet the legs came with attached orange shag carpet :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: .

@Superdoo, the machine was serviced long ago at a place that still stands and I had my machine serviced there last year. It is almost like brand new. I am not sure what I will do with this thing though but love that motor on it. I would sew with that as equally as my servo. I really just need to fin...
@superdoo, he did get a super machine may not know it yet but will figure it out. I really have more work than work for this machine if I get it operable.
