Default Concentric squares

On the quilt I am repairing, I am making "prototype squares," and what I
mean is that I am working out the best/fastest way to replace the
squares I am replacing.

I have a presser foot that is for sewing parallel lines. In theory,
this sounds real good for making the "concentric squares" that I talked
about.

This foot is held together by 3 screws, 1 that holds it to the holds it
to the needle bar with the other 2 for the adjustment of the width
between the row of stitches that is already made and the one that is
currently being sewn (this is the closest I can find to what I have:
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/zip...ank-55411.aspx,
but on the one I have, there is also a holder for a bar that can be run
along the existing stitching that can be adjusted from ~2 to ~4 inches,
I think).

The problem is that the screw that adjusts the width comes loose very
easily, and when that happens the needle hits the solid part of the
presser foot and breaks, I think I broke 2 needles before I figured out
what was going on, and decided to do it the "old fashioned" way, with a
ruler to figure out where the parallel lines go.

Hi Brian,

Have you tried swapping the screws around?
Are there are feet that have screws you could try from?

Feeble comments I now, but worth a try.

Cheers,
Di
