Sorry, but now I'm confused. I see a silver coloured pointed pin or needle shaped object in the centre of the picture, right up against the bed of the machine, behind the hook driving shaft. It...

Well it looks to me like you've gone some distance to eliminate the likelihood that the problem is under the machine, that leads me to think that it's more likely something at the top. The most...

My first recommendation is this: do not force the handwheel. Move it very gently. These machines are not entirely made out of metal as some people believe. There is a “Textolite” gear under the...

From what I can gather, the "W" on a Singer 319 means it was made in the Wheeler and Wilson factory in Bridgeport Connecticut. It appears that Singer acquired this factory in about 1905. The 319's...

As I said, I'm not an expert on these, I didn't realize that a hand crank couldn't be fitted without a motor boss. I just learned something that I didn't know!

Someone was certainly creative in keeping this machine going. I am no expert, but I believe this was originally a treadle machine. The bobbin winder wouldn't have had a rubber tire on it. Instead,...
