Default Can you help me identify these extra parts.

As is often the case, whenever I take a machine apart I end up with extra parts. Can you help me identify where these might go?extra-parts-005.jpg

What kind of machine do you have? That could make identifying them a little bit easier. The model number could also help.

Also what part of the machine no longer works, or sounds funny?

the first appears to be the plate that holds stuff together in the bobbin case--------but you ought to recognize it.

the 4 round things are washers that help bolts stay in their place. The inside diameter is usually about the same size as the bolt it goes with (or screw)

No help here. I don't think they are extra, I think they are used somewhere in the machine. I'm a chicken and don't take many parts off.

My son tells me that you are really good if you can put a machine together and have left over parts Especially if the machine works!!

OK, the parts of the machine I have the most trouble with are the bobbin winders. Could these be springs for my Morse Fotomatic?

101 of basic maintenance. The first thing taken off a piece of machinery is put first in line, then the second right next to it then third all the way down to the last part. Every screw, nut, washer, etc is put in the line. To assemble, the last one off goes, on first.

Thanks for the advice BellaBoo, if only I had done that each time. Sometimes I give my memory more credit than it deserves.

Set your camera on movie mode and tape it when you do it, and make sure you do like above, putting them in order. Draw around them on paper to get the shape, and number the shapes in case it gets bumped? My memory hides too!
