New to serging and confused on one major concept.. I will try to be concise. I have a 4 thread serger. I do not understand what to do with threads that I won’t be using in a stitch. Example: My guide states for a two-thread overedge, 3.5mm :: Settings chart states the following: use right needle: Left needle thread tension is greyed out and completely blank:, Right needle thread tension states 0.5,: Upper Looper thread tension is also greyed out and completely blank Lower Looper thread states 6.0 Last column choices in chart title are either Upper looper or Converter, for this particular two thread overedge it states Converter. So I understand to remove left needle, set right needle thread tension to 0.5 and set lower looper thread to 6.0. I am also aware that these may not be exact and may need slight adjustments. What I don’t understand is what to do with left needle thread. Do I completely remove that thread? Do I leave the thread on and/or just set tension to 0? Do I do both, either? Same with the upper looper thread?
And last exactly what do they mean by looper or converter.?. What does this term refer to in general? . I also do not have any automatic buttons or slides to determine the upper looper or converter setting, as I have read elsewhere. I have spent hours trying to get these answers. Any help would be appreciated.
