Are my comments getting through?  I thought I would see them, but nothing so want to make sure I am doing the right thing before responding again.

I purchased the machine at Miami Industrial while in Florida a couple of weeks ago.  They showed me that it stitched, and I had the opportunity to stitch it also.  They packed it up and I brought it home with me to California.  I went to Orange County Industrial and they installed it onto the table.  I bought the nylon for the needle and lower looper, it is .008.  I purchased the floss from Enmart.  It stitches the merrow edge, but I notice the lower looper thread is loose under the patch, and it also seems to be rough on the outer edge.  I believe I have the tensions incorrect, but was also wondering if I have too thick of nylon thread.  Where could I find more instructions?  Thank you for any help.

Thanks Charlie! The machine is incredible - I am purchasing a few more as we grow!

fabulous to see you interact and preserve the heritage - very cool.

we now have 7 vintage commercial machines and our demand is increasing - would be great to have our little cottage business bloom! good bye day job?!!?


Thanks again,

David Davies replied to James Reed's discussion Which Older Machine can i use to do Patch edges.
"James,   Find Al Williams in one of the other discussions.  He's doing patches with a machine converted into doing edges.  I think it was an M3DW but I don't want to swear to it. Dave"

Converting into a MG-3U

Anybody know what modifications need to be made to a different MG machine to make it into a MG-3U?I need the functionality of the MG-3U but those can't be found on the used market.  I know other MGs have been converted into MG-3Us I just don't know what is required.Thanks,DaveSee More
