does any of you own Elna 704 dex overlock/coverlock maschine? I’m very satisfied with overlock, but when it comes to coverlock… oh my god. I have not managed to do it right it 2 years now. I always start with fresh needles, I thread it right, I know how to adapt thread tension BUT it still skip stitches. When I do the the test stitch it works great, but when I start heming it starts skiping stitches. As far as I understood, my coverlock can’t hem nothhing more than 30 cm – then it starts messing around with me. Is this possible? I even took it to a proffessional and there it worked fine – but he was doing just test stiches, not an outfit.
Does any of you have same problems or any advice? I would really appreciate it!
Tnx in advance :)
