I finally got the soba pilot put together i hit 133 hz but when I put the needle and rubberband it died down to 105 hz and sounds weird I tried tuning it with the needle and I can't get it up no more than 109 hz any help tips I'll appreciate it thanks

Hey dude. Here is what I think. The pilot frame is long allowing you for a long stroke, witch slows things down. Thinks that you can do is close out that big gap. Your machine will be faster but have a shorter stroke. I hope that helps. I have a Soba pilot liner, I love it my runs around 98, 50% at 6.5 loaded.

Hey dude. Yes my a bar is set up very close to the spring shelf, what I was talking about was the gap between the a bar and front coil. The smaller the gap the less distance the a bar has to travel = the faster your machine will run :)
Yes I can pull nice single pass lines with 9t just fine. Turn your contact screw down a turn, and slow your hand monument down a little its not a high speed machine.
As far as numbers go, I always look at the machine shit when its loaded, it changes depending on needle size.

Yeah dude, it all matters, length, bend, angle. Play around with it and see for yourself. I love tuning my machines, its relaxing. I think the angle of my front spring is less then 15 and more then 10.
