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 are a few shots of the Needle height gauge
Here is a pic of the original that I was lucky enough to have sent to me:
Here is the pattern I lifted from that glued to some brass with thew first one cut out.
Here are the four guides cut and ready for cleanup
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.
bravo! 10 for this work! it would look nice even as an ear ring or similar for the last of the year.
you must post some of your preferred tools for making, next time!….;)
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.
Steve, those look fantastic. Do you make them to sell? I'm needing the front bobbin plate for my 1910 66
that looks so NICE and it's not even done yet !!
me too. i need the plates for my 128 (ha ha ha).

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.
