The Stitch Length Regulator
On older machines the stitch length is regulated by turning the large screw on the pillar of the machine. For the longest possible stitch, turn the screw all the way in, as shown above...
... and for a smaller stitch, turn the screw out. Test the stitch length before you thread the machine by stitching on a piece of paper. You will see how far apart the perforations are and can set the stitch length without using up material and thread.
