Hi all, I have a 'similar' machine to the LSZ1 that sews beautifully in forward but when it comes to reverse, the bottom and more so the top tension become loose. I have increased bobbin and top tensions but still in reverse they seem to stay loose. I also adjusted the feed cam a little to increase tension range but this has not solved the problem. The underside stitches look a little skewed in reverse. I have been using v92 thread and a size 20 needle and trying to adjust to two layers of sunbrella. Cap spring looks perfect and timing looks pretty good as well. I am running out of solutions to try and any thoughts would be appreciated. Kindest regards, Bruce.
