    HIya!

    Mine is only cleaner because I've had it longer. It had its major clean up a couple of months ago. About the time I posted about needing to JB weld a bobbin winder, in fact. We have the stuff, we're going to try it this weekend along with twisting up some piano wire to recreate a spring.

    I'm not sure what big hole at the back you're referring to. Is it the rectangular one beside the motor controller, in the wood? If so, it matches the one left of the needle on the other side. The 2 are for holding the lid on.

    Here are a couple more pics.
    The last pic is of the top upside down, showing you the pieces that connect to the base to hold the two pieces together. The yellow string holds my key.
    Hope this helps.

    Mine didn't come with a key, and I meant the large round hole. In your pic there is something metal? Protruding out of it? It's so cool to peek at a machine. I bought this one with out to much knowledge about it. I just made sure it had the important bits! At least one bobbin and the shuttle and wonder and stuff. Any idea what the clip inside the lid is for?

    Oh! That hole is where the knee lever goes. (That's what you see protruding from it)
    You can see the hole in one of the other pics.
    The clip inside the lid is to hold an oil can.

    This machine needs the winder fixed, or replaced, so that's why it's still on my bench, but it was whole when I bought it. The winder came apart in my hands when I was reassembling it after cleaning.

    Sh very cool. Can you get a pic (whenever) of the knee lever? I think the extra metal bit is a light cover from another machine or something. It looks to smal to be part of the knee lever and is thin sheet metal or aluminum. But that's good to know that's what the hole is.

    Can you post a pic of the metal? I know there's an aluminum insert inside the light, it's probably 2" x 3" ish... curved.

    These links show what the knee lever looks like in its entirety:

    I also learned last week that a 99 will not fit in a 128 case.
    The base of a 128 (or at least the one I have) is too shallow, so the machine can't seat if the hinges are used, and there's no suspension room to keep the 99 mechanism off the base.
