Special Setup
I have a HD3000 that I bought to use primarily on very heavy fabrics. such as cordura or heavy webbing as is used for dog collars or horse halters. Can this machine be set up to sew with a very heavy thread? I think this would require adjusting the bobbin case tension as well as the top thread tension. I have another machine that I use for garment weight fabrics and I could also purchase another bobbin case so that switching between thread sizes would be less time consuming.

Thanks in advance for any input.

    I have used nomex thread on a free standing spool with my HD 3000. I had to use a jean needle to sew heavy webbing. I had to play with the settings and I used a walking foot. All worked fine. Content is edited
