Product Description

FOR UPPER THREAD



Tajima's pencil style tension gauge for setting proper top thread tensions.

The Tajima top thread pencil style tension gauge has a hook on one side with a slide guide that is used to set top thread tension on commercial embroidery machines. The slide needle works with a spring to indicate if you need to tighten or loosen top thread tension.

Specifications:

  • Tajima top thread tension gauge
  • Spring driven analog window
  • 5.5” long

For use with:

  • Embroidery thread on commercial embroidery machines

How to use:
To check your top thread tension, have your embroidery thread correctly threaded through your machine’s running path including through the needle and presser foot. Wrap the end of the embroidery thread around the hook end on the gauge so that it catches without slipping. Slowly and steadily pull the gauge back toward yourself. Note the common number seen on the gauge’s needle. 

Top thread tensions may vary up or down by as much as 5 to 10 gf.
