Yeah, I haven't seen one of those hook systems in any of the Kenmore machines that have hit my bench. All of the 158 (Maruzen Jaguar made) Kenmore machines I've seen have been a regular 15 hook and...

Plastic bobbins are fine. I don't suggest metal bobbins in plastic cases because they wear the case out.
Chances are good that your machine does need a bobbin case. It should be easy to get one,...

You are correct - if it were centered, then as the needle size grew, it would have a chance of hitting the left side of the right part of the foot for exactly the same reason that the needle is not...

And I won't use Vaseline or any petroleum product on plastic or nylon. It has the potential to "eat" the gears depending on the make up of the gears. Synthetic only on plastic or nylon in my shop. ...

Weird, I compared it to the side of the throat plate and thought it looked about right but you might be right that it's twisted.

Either way, we still need to see without the foot to see where...

I agree! I rarely buy $200 at a time, unless it's at wholesale (batting or backings - I can do that as a LA quilter) so smaller minimums are great. I -think- they're in Fort MacMurray, based on the...

As NapaJohn said, if you're not going to take it in, you need to be both technician and owner and do the work of both. The owner's manuals are misleading this way (and a big pet peeve of mine...

Not normal. I haven't read the older thread recently - what oiling have you done on the machine? Pfaff machines are German built - way tighter tolerances than say a Singer of the same age. They...

I'm not positive that Teflon won't clog the wicks, so I wouldn't use it in a wick situation. Tri-flow oil does leave a residue in my syringes that has to be shaken up and mixed in or it clogs the...
