    Candace, Thanks for posting the tutorial and helpful info on the Elnas.

    At first, I couldn't get the link to show the info, so I took the elkgrove portion of the link to look for the link on the Elna repair.

    Your orchids are very pretty!!!

    I am looking for a nut for a 1911 Michigan Farmer sewing Machine. The nut is a 7/16" with 18 NF.

    Anamaria, Did you figure out how to get the hand wheel off that machine? What is the machine?

    Hi Monica, No, I haven't figured out how to get the wheel off. I will keep trying if not she will come up with me to the next TOGA. I have been doing some detail cleaning, all the metal, and the inside, making her shine. Was thinking of applying shelac using Glenn's tutorial. Here is a picture of her so far. The slide plates, and bobbin winder are all done, they just need to go back on. I will post a picture when she is all done. She is looking good.

    Grayhare,
    I think the previous post was correct, it looks to me like the small pin in the. Center of the shaft will have to be driven out with a drift pin pinch. Preferably one with a "hollow" end. A flat punch will work, but it would deformed the nicely rounded end of your pin.

    She is looking very PRETTY! You are definitely a meticulous worker; she shines! Plus, all your tools are so neatly lined up! Beautiful decals!!
