I bought a Singer 404, at the flea market yesterday. I gave 5.00 for it plus the cabinet it was in. It was missing the power cord. I used the one for my 401a, it sews like a dream. The only thing the lever that raised the two pins that holds the needle plate won't go over to the left to raise the pins. Any ideas as to how I can make this work?
I hope it just needs oiling. I had to replace the bobbin winder tire, and the thread holder pin for the bobbin is missing.
