I am pooped. I'm supposed to be getting ready to move my daughter back from college and what do I do? Take apart two sewing machines. Yesterday, I disassembled the transmission/cogs and gears from my Viking as there were problems with the mechanism. Took me all day yesterday to get it right. Of course I thought, I'd better take apart the tensioner and make sure that' s fine and clean the motor, since I've already spent so much time on the machine.
Then today, I installed a bobbin retriever on my Elna Carina and thought, "you should really remove the motor and check the carbon brushes". So, off go all the belts, out comes the motor...took me several hours. I'm filthy, my fingers and hands are sore and I'm tired. But a good tired. Both machines are humming and ready to go. Me, I'm ready for a nap:>
