I have an update on the Bernina 530-2 I posted about earlier...it's working!! Wahoo. It had a seriously locked up screw in the Cam/lever area. The sewing machine guy I went to see got it movingand adjusted in a relatively quick amount of time. As many have said on this forum...the older Bernina's have an awesome stitch. Every stitch on this 54 year old machine is just perfect.
Joe, you mention a Wizard. Well, I had one in my car that I got back from my other machine service guy who told me it was unfixable. I admit it isn't so smart to pay much to have service guys tell you it can't be fixed but anyway I decided to have this other service man look at the Wizard. He did and he told me what was needed. I left it with him and he called a day later with an update..it now works and the zig zag is functioning BUT..he says I'll need to have some music on my iPod to drown out a clunk noise that he says he doesn't think he can fix. I haven't heard the clunk yet but I believe him if he says it's loud. I think I'll sew on my Bernina 530 that purrs like a kitten and wait a while before I rescue more vintage problems. I hope you are having a sunny day and sewing something fun.
