You are a distance away, but I know that Hayes Sewing Machine in Delaware would be able to help you. They are the best for fixing the old ones. You can google their website.

You might also PM Billy on this board Lostn51 he offered to get parts for my 66. Worth a shot!

They are readily available from sewing machine shops and online. But I like dealing with Sew Classic. She is great.

I depend on www.april1930s.com for my parts and attachments. Knowledgable, free postage, wonderful customer service. Ditto, Julie Ferguson at Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String.

I am confused. Are you referring to the foot, which guides your needle onto your fabric? Or, are you talking about the foot control that sits on the floor and you use your foot to push on it to make your machine run?

This online source that I have used carries a replacement foot controller in a more modern and usable style (a full foot pedal, rather than just the small button ). Here it is: http://www.221parts.com/control.htm As long as you're there, you might want to buy a replacement felt pad too.

Hope you're back to sewing soon!

Thanks for this information, I like the free shipping. And the prices are reasonable.
