Well, the overlock needle snapped off while I was using it yesterday. But
everything else still works.

He was using denim scraps from the trash and spent a minute talking to
me about the seams in the denim and how to feed them through (sometimes
the seams are too much for it, go VERY slowly and maybe pull from behind
a tiny bit).  I told him about the eyelet and he laughed.  The timing
gets knocked off whenever the machine goes through something crazy like
that.  if it wasn't that eyelet, it was lots of aggressive sewing of
bulky seams or something.  Basically the timing was totally screwed up.
 That just means that all the little moving bits aren't meeting each
other at the right points in the cycle - so they can't engage and create
the stitch.  Some of this may have been caused by attempts to fix it -
it is really tempting to fiddle with knobs and stuff when the machine's
not working right.
