You need to call the person from whom you purchased the machine. They will be more than willing to help you with the problem. They will be familiar with the machine and will have a "checklist" of things for you to check that will lead them to the solution for you.
When I read your post I the first thing I thought was that you didn't seat the bobbin case properly. It's easy to do, esp. when you're used to using a topload machine. Then I wondered how the machine was so fouled up by stitching through #10 zip. chain... I do it all the time with my 1541 and it never bats an eye... and I came back to the bobbin case scenario.
I don't know what to tell you, Jan. except get on the blower to the outfit that sold you the machine. No way the work you were doing should create so much hassle so soon. JMO.

you should be able to just loosen the feed dog plate and lift it up, reposition the cage and screw the
feed dog plate down again.

What you want is something like 1000D Cordura. It's rot resistant and lighter but much stronger and more durable than canvas.
I usually get my Cordura (aside from MultiCam) from Rockywoods but that Rochford Supply place seems to have better prices. I'll give them a shot the next time I need some more. Thanks for posting it, Chris.
I buy some of my Cordura from Rochfords too. Where do you get the MultiCam from? Is there a better deal or is it hard to find?

As far as the Adler long arm goes, I plan to keep it around. It in in the shop getting a tuneup. I just purchased this from Gregg at Keystone.
It has a needle positioner to make the long arm a little easier to use.

Since you're buying local, I assume that you're test driving it first.
I have always been leery of that phrase "Sewn off".
I'm always getting brochures from out-of-state places that use that phrase. Just because they can fold a piece of fabric 2 or 3 times, and sew the crap out of it, that really doesn't tell me anything. I want be able to sew an entire cushion, and see how the corners come out.
