    Grant,
    If you are willing to share that wiring tutorial, I would love to have it, also. I have one machine that is so bad that it is scary that someone actually may have used it recently. If you are willing to share, PM me and I will send my email address by return PM. Thanks, Donna

I do some rewiring on about 1/2 to 1/3 of the machines I do. Quite often it is the motor leads (wires going into the motor housing). I'd be glad to shoot you an email tutorial I did if you would like.

    I'm thinking you could post a tutorial on here and everybody would be happy!

    Hey Miriam...how come you are so smart and I am so old? I should have thought of that posting the tutorial on here but I guess old brains just work slower. Thanks for the good idea!

    Maybe Glenn can chime in on the tutorial, too. Oh and I keep getting older, too....

    For the most part wiring motors is easy. Well, wiring a sewing machine is easy, that's all there is to it.

    Yes, you need to know how to solder. And using a good electrical solder like Radio Shack used to sell is a big help.
    Check your local hardware store for solder.

    Oh yeah, you should learn how to tie an underwriters knot too. Very important knot.

    Soldering and underwriters knot covered here. I used to work at a shop where we made most of the teleprompters in use at that time were made. Additionally, I helped DH wire the house we built ourselves.

    so I learned to solder jewelry...and have all the tools etc. Any differences? I use silver shiny solder, not the dull grey stuff. I can tie a surgeons knot...
    I would love a tute- what sort of bribe would work?
