CLOTHING SEWING MACHINE .continued.
Feed Regulator Dial.
The stitch length is regulated by turning dial (5) at the front of the machine. When number "0" on the
dial appears uppermost, the machine does not feed. Turning the dial to the left will gradually increase
the stitch length to its maximum (1 to 5), when "5" is at the top. As the stitch length is increased it can
be noticed that the reverse feed lever (6) slowly moves in upward direction.
When shortening the stitch length, it will be found of advantage to depress lever (6) slightly as dial (5)
is being turned to the right. To do tacking for the purpose of locking the ends of seams, rapidly depress
and release lever (6) as the needle approaches the edge of the material.
Reverse Feed Lever.
The reverse lever reverses the direction of feed. For reverse sewing, push and hold the feed lever all
the way down. When released, a spring returns the lever to its normal forward stitching position.
