Spiral save issues can be frustrating, but effective troubleshooting can often solve the problems. Here is a step-by-step guide:

Uneven bobbin insertion

If you notice that the bobbin is inserted unevenly, check the bobbin insertion path for foreign objects or obstructions. Clean the area and ensure the spool insert is positioned correctly.

Bobbin Jam

If the bobbin is not properly aligned with the cut holes, bobbin binding may occur. Adjust the reel settings on your machine to ensure a clear path for the spool.

Uneven crimping

If the coil ends are crimping unevenly, check the crimping tool for wear or damage. Replace the crimping tool if necessary and ensure the coil is properly centered before crimping.
