I'm really zeroing in on a few top machines to have on hand for customers and friends that may need a machine.
Under pinnings are nearly the same
Its the rotary hook that I like so much about the Pfaff
I determined that the thread tension spring was worn out or there was a washer missing, either-way it needed more tension than it could provide.
I ended up simply putting another spring over the original (now there are two springs) and this increased the tension without running the knob all the way in.
The best Logo decal is completely hidden by the motor
This is a very fast machine although the max stitch length is not as great as I had thought it would be.
The ZZ only stays where you set it if it is in the Left needle pos. not sure if that is typical (I think it is)
Ultimately very disappointed with this thing; it locked up solid and took many hours to discover the problem area, I had to scrap it out, I will steer clear of these things.
I love all of my Pfaffs except this one, oh well live and learn.
