    Default Brother Pacesetter FZ2 spool pins

    Hello all, I just got this machine back from being serviced, after purchasing it from goodwill online. The needle bar was rusted and frozen but now works like a charm. However it is missing all of the original attachments and the two pop up spool pin holders. Does anyone know of a good source for the pop up spool pins (part number 3818), perhaps another compatible donor machine? There were other needle plates including straight stitch and darning, but I didnít see part numbers anywhere. Thanks in advance.

    A person that I know, who is familiar with vintage Brother machines (& has a couple Pacesetters) told me -

    "The pop up spool pins on this machine are the same as the pop up pins on other makes so you should be able to find them on Ebay, etc..
    As for the needle plates, these were exclusive to this machine and the only way to get them is from someone parting out an FZ2."

    Thanks Janey, that is very helpful. I was going to troll ebay to look for the needle plates, but alas, apparently that might be a proverbial needle in a haystack. I'm hoping to find the spool pins now. I really appreciate the reply ;-) Thanks!!
