I say what I always say when it comes to pedals on European machines: Check for rf suppression capacitors and take them out. I don't have time to look up now, but recent threads explain thoroughly....

Guess I didn't read your description properly, Brig28, sorry about that. You already went back to sewing, and it works ok. I'll let people who know what they are talking about take over.

That's unreal... I guess the light is a little flattering, and that there are little imperfections -it can not possibly be completely mint..? I know people "embalm" new cars to preserve and revive...

I agree that it's not hard to tell the difference between the most common ones, but I understand people who are not confident about this, or haven't learned it yet.

I agree about the cause.

The reason the needle hole is as small as possible, is mainly to avoid the needle pushing the material down, and get a clean entry. The hole should be as small as...

Keep posting this stuff, folks - every time DW worries about me, I show her the hardcore pictures and tell her I will never. ever. get. there. She believes it just about as much as I do.

I'll regard your question as a totally practical one. Like Mickey said, putting a motor on is not burning any bridges, it's a reversible action. Unscrewing the motor and slipping the belt back on...

Units in that condition is the reason I scour the e-markets every day, even though I already have more machines than I'll ever get to finish or put to use. It's rewarding to restore and salvage...

Do you know which needles it takes?
