So, I was humming along, cleaning and reassembling a 128, almost finished completely, just had to get the bobbin winder back together, and I could test sew it, then it happened.
The body of the winder fell apart in my hand!
Now I have to decide if I want to try to JB weld the piece that broke, or find one to buy online somewhere.
The only one I've seen is pretty rough compared to this one, but I think once there's JB weld on this one, it'll trump rough. *sigh*
DH says it will look bad, because it will have a blob of JB weld. Bad but working... worth it?
Can you even JB weld cast? (I'm new to this particular avenue of repair, does it show?)
I guess what I'm wondering / concerned about is the sheer strength of the JBW. It will have to be able to take pressure from the gear side, the tire side and the bobbin side.
