misseva, on the 15-91 the needle goes with the flat side to the left, and you thread from right to left. It's the opposite of a lot of other machines, including older Singer 15's. Here's the manual...

I can't tell you about the finish, but I'm pretty sure the embossment would have been part of the casting mold. That machine reminds me of the old wood stove that my uncle had in his shop, it was...

opalstar, the large spring that you can see in the fourth pic of post #30 is the one you have to worry about, I think the smaller springs you're talking about are the motor brushes, which you don't...

opalstar, the motor should be pushing against the handwheel at all times, it sounds like that spring still isn't quite right.

leonf, the spring just slides over a rod, I can't photograph it but it's pretty obvious.

opalstar, there's a coil spring inside the arm of the machine that pushes the motor against the handwheel, yours is probably just out of place. Here's how you can check, its fairly simple:

Yup, I have one and it works fine with 15x1 needles, it's just a matter of timing the eye of the needle to the hook. Distance from the eye to the hook doesn't really matter.

Also I want to point out these machines use C1221 needles, like Mickey2 said, but it's actually quite
simple to reset the needlebar height to take 15x1 needles.

opalstar, does the motor just rotate downwards when you let go of it? It's supposed to be spring loaded to hold the pulley against the handwheel.

leonf, It's been a while since I took that off, but I think there was just the set screw. FWIW to get stubborn handwheels off I'll put a piece of 2x under the needlebar to stop the shaft from turning...

No, I was just going to pull the parts off it and scrap it, it's actually worse than it looks in the pic. You're more than welcome to the handwheel if you pay the shipping.

Is it possible the stop motion washer got turned the wrong way? That will prevent the knob from tightening down properly. Is the handwheel spinning fast when the motor runs fast?

leonf, on that machine with the dull bronze finish, is the bobbin winder on the motor shaft itself? I've seen some old Domestics like that, I think that arm on the back swings out to be the thread...

leonf, I have a Free Westinghouse ALB that's more or less the same machine, except it has the "turtle" motor. Not sure if you're aware, they were made to take a shorter CC1221 needle, but you should...

The round nubs go to the outside, and then getting the rotation right is a matter of trial and error.

I think that might be the problem: those three nubs on the washer are what the screw stops against when you loosen the knob. If the washer's turned the wrong way, you won't be able to turn it far...

bkay, have you tried removing the knob and rotating the stop motion washer (the washer with three little nubs that fits between the knob and the handwheel) around 180 degrees?
