I am still on the learning curve with my Juki MO655. I am using the 3 thread overlock as my main stitch right now. I cannot find that balanced tension combination on the upper and lower loopers to produce a good stitch Has anyone else had this problem with the 655.

I have an MO-654DE and I find that when testing on a new fabric, it's better to start with the two loopers set a bit low (3 or so on my machine) and work up from there. If you've been experimenting, you know that small adjustments between the numbers can really make a difference and settings do vary with fabrics.

Is there a type of fabric that you find particularly difficult?
