towa tension guage

Recommended Posts

I have a TOWA gage also and here is how I found what worked.

I experimented on my LA until I had the tension right. No top thread on the bottom and no bobbin thread on the top and I liked the look of the stitches. I then removed the bobbin and measured the tension using the gage and wrote down the reading and what type thread I was using.

Repeated this for the several bobbin threads I use in addition to self wound and pre-wound. This didn't take long and I ended up with a chart indicating what the reading should be before I start.

Works great....Consistency is everything.....Good Luck.
