Questions for those of you with one of these machines:

I'm having trouble getting the stitch length adjuster on my LAVF to give a proper range, and it would help to know what the maximum is that I should be shooting for.  It looks like it should be able to do 10 spi.  About right?  If it should be longer, I have some more experimenting to do.

And -- should it stop moving the cloth all at the full clockwise position?  Or should it be giving a very short stitch at that point.

From what I see, it looks like the stitch length range swept out by the knob is dictated in part by the thickness of the 143 year old felt washer on the inside of the casting.  I'm thinking that this setting may have drifted out of spec...  ;-)
