Ginmom4 posted a topic in Troubleshooting & TipsHi all! I just purchased a used ultimate II machine last week. So far it has been great, except every once in a while the thread will start to break or shred, and the stitches will skip. It is not every time just every once in a while. Does it sound like a timing issue? I have checked for burrs, cleaned and oiled everything and changed the needle. Tension seems to be just right The top thread and bottom thread have no loops peeking through. I have done the drop test with the bobbin, and then set the upper tension after that. I am using a cotton thread, maybe I need to hydrate the spool? I have a brand new needle in place. I am fairly new to the long arm quilting world, and would really appreciate the advice. Thanks, Ginger
