Because of the difficulties of feeding such a hard and dense material through the machine, the number of stitches per inch should be set at a minimum 7-8. (3 .2 metric).
The seam allowance for this type of material should be 2.5mm.
Because of the density/hardness of this Nylon component we would recommend the use of the Schmetz Serv 7, Groz-Beckert San 5 type needles or Schmetz SDI triangular point in size 120-130 for 40 thread. These have reinforced blades, which will reduce the possibility of needle deflection and breakage during stitching.
Standard needle (slight possibility of needle or component breakage) - Larger needles may cause problems.
We overrun no less than five stitches, the stitches that overlap must go into the original holes. Tying of thread is optional.
