Hi all, I have a George that is quilting well using Omni thread top and SoFine in the bobbin. I check the oil wicks each day I use it and oil as necessary, but for the past week there's been a persistent squeak/squeal from inside the machine at far right, above where the thread stand is. (It is not the thread stand vibrating--I've already found and solved that problem a few years ago:) I checked and oiled the bobbin area, thinking that would help, but it didn't. Does anyone have advice on how to fix this? Thanks in advance for any advice. Elizabeth in Michigan
Hi Mrs A, I am a new George owner (yay!) and had a question about the needles you use. I had my machine timed to the size 12 Schmetz but the needles I got from my rep are not the SES style. I wanted to order a few sizes up and down to test with different threads and wonder if you chose the SES style for a specific reason? So far the machine is working best with poly thread but I'm finally having some success with Aurifil after reading advice on this forum. (My new mantra is "loosen that tension":) I see you're also using Aurifil--what weight are you using? Thanks for all your advice.
