I'm sure leon, LOL. Your New Home vertical shuttle looks great. The 128 I used was in flawless condition, black and probably a converted hand crank. It clicked along nicely, different sound than a 66 or 201, stable and light running.

I can’t seem to get the faceplate off my 128-23. Any ides appreciated. The machine runs beautifully but can’t get to the shuttle.

Marti1943 I think there is a communication issue. Faceplates cover the needlbar and presser foot bars. Your shuttle is under a slide in the bed. Generally if they are stuck a bit of sewing machine oil along the edges will help. Top and bottom. Yea. holding it upside down isn't fun. but may be necessary. Then I try to run a thumbnail along the edges where the slide touches the base. If that doesn't work after a could of days I'll take a kabob skewer or a chopstick, cut them off square and gently tap the notch in the slide with the skewer nudged gently by a little hammer.

Spray can oil along the edge of the slide plate can help, if possible, don't get it on the decals, triflow should seep in there too.

I have a set of brass punches and a brass hammer that I use when my slide plates need an extra nudge. The brass does not damage the slide plate. (gentle nudge)

I have an aluminum punch but I like to use the skewers first. Brass is great.
