    the highness of the needle eye, measure homemade, seems about 15 mm. with maximum highness of needlebar.

    there is the fabric under the foot, two light flannel. 1mm? 0,7? however she sews, perhaps the squeak too is lighter.

    notice that, it seems to me, when you go upper down , the upper thread is not brought ut, without any fabric under the

    foot. in fact the booklet doesn'nt talk about bribging up the upper thread before sewing.

    i go for re-seeing the video. a presto

    Here is the completed shot with a small length of chain added to help keep it from getting lost.

    Yes, the guide goes into the presser foot to set the needle height.

    Thanks, I used rubber cement to glue the paper down, a Jewelers Saw and blade to cut it out, and a diamond file to smooth the edges. that's it.

    I also got the replacement brass slides cut out. I will see if I can get them sliver plated tonight. These will probable not be my final "operating set" because the cuts were a bit off and there is a small gap. But i will use them to troubleshoot the process and work out the issues, THEN make a final set.

    I am actually working on a process to reliably make VS2 Fiddlebase and 127/128/27/28 slide plates. I can make the rectangular plates all day, including W&W plates, and the outer curve of the fiddlebase is easy, it is the "must match the circular needle plate cutout" that i can only currently do one at a time by hand. I am working on getting the correct punches to do the large 1/4 bite.

    I make plates for fun. I sent to folks for free and if they want to do a Paypal to reimburse that's fine, but not required.

    This is not a commercial site, so if you want anything like that you should PM me for my Email and handle it off board.
