I've got a Bernina Activa 145, which I mainly use for bike luggage and outdoor gear. That means a fair bit of bar tacking webbing straps etc. If I keep exactly the same pressure on the pedal, and press the reverse stitch button, the machine runs slower, release the button and it runs faster again. A nice easy speed for working forwards translates to minimum speed in reverse. I can speed it up again by pressing the pedal more firmly, so it's not just that it runs at minimum speed in reverse. If I'm doing a lot I do synchronise foot pressure and reverse mode but this takes a bit of getting used to each session
Is this slow-motion reverse inherent to all machines? A feature of mine? Changeable?
