My new Singer 201-2, wiring problems
I rescued another sewing machine today. This one is a 1951 Singer 201-2. This first thing I need to take care of is the wiring. The pedal wire is badly frayed where it attaches to the machine and the power cord is frayed where it attaches to the connector to the machine. The only other thing is a missing thumb screw on the stitch regulator. I can get a new power cord from Sew Classic but I don't know where to begin to replace the pedal wire where it attaches to the machine (that's been no man's land for me so far). Here are photos of the machine, wiring, and the goodies that came with it. Can anyone identify the black attachment with all the different knobs on the right (it has Simanco 180981 stamped on it)? It looks like a zigzagger but it has cams with it that look like other stitches too.
