I just got a new White Speedylock 1600 and got it threaded, and cannot figure out the tension! It looks like the left needle thread is too loose, and either the upper looper thread is too tight or the lower is too loose. ?? But i've adjusted the left needle as tight as it will go and it still looks VERY loose. I can get the loopers to match up on the edge, mostly, but all of the thread just looks too loose! Any help would be much appreciated!

I don't have that machine. I have a pfaff, but i was completely new to serging. I found that my manual was very helpful in telling me how to set stuff. Do you have a manual and have you looked up tension in it? Good luck.

You may need to adjust the cutting width. On my machine (Janome), you have to lower the knife first and there is a knob you can turn to adjust the cutting width. I guess every machine is different but perhaps your serger also has something like this?
