    That one is a really hard screw to find! Singer threads were proprietary and there is not another screw out there that will fit it but that one screw. I do not remember where I found the few I have but they are worth their weight in gold!

    I'm missing the same one on my 15-91.
    Bow do not hold me to it but I think the screws out of the Japanese 15 will fit it. I have a 201 here that I am servicing that I can try the one out of my 25 to see if the threads are the same. If that is so then you can find the Japanese 15's cheap and rob the screw off of it.

    I have a few on parts machines I'd be happy to mail out. Might need some steel wool.

    Billy; Off topic of course but love your new avatar. That is a precious picture. Quilt looks lovely, too. ~ Chris
    Thank you, I made that quilt for my little Lola. She was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and I made her a quilt just for her to snuggle in. When it came time to put her to sleep made sure I buried her in it so she would always have me hugging her and would not feel alone. But she really loved it and I would take it to our bedroom and she would lay on it all snuggled up with just her little head poked out. Billy
    Billy, again just so precious - the quilt, the dog and you. I am so sorry you lost her but understand burying her with the quilt as I buried my best cat with his favorite t-shirt of mine. Only the best for our furbabies. I also hope you feel better soon from the infection and whatever else is also going on. You and your family are in my prayers.

    Don't know how I missed this before - she's adorable. I lost my Golden, Abby, 3 years ago to cancer at age 11 and I still miss her terribly. It's great that she'll always have you hugging her.

    Candace, they were talking about Featherweights here....the link is to a 66 in treadle. :-) It is a nice machine, though, and a good price!!
    Actually, there are many discussions going on at once. I'm not talking about FWs.
    SORRY!!! And the 66 is a NICE looking one!!

    Is it a 66? It's been brought to my attention that it isn't because of the double slide plate.

    You're right Candace. The 66's are a rotary bobbin, this one is a shuttle bobbin.
    My smart PM friend is correct:>

    Billy, the picture is precious.

    Glen. I was just thinking of you. My son who was working in Huntsville when your tornadoes hit is now working in New Jersey. He was in Ohio for the floods last year, too. He told his company they don't do a good job picking sites.

    I have a quick question I have a singer 66 that I purchased on craigslist for $10, follwed Billy's great directions and cleaned it all up. Now I'm trying to get some test sews on it and I think the bobbins that came with it are wrong. The person gave me a metal bobbin that is the same size as the prewound Class 15's that fit in my Brother CS80 & Kenmore machine. When I try that bobbin all the upper thread goes under.
    I put a Singer 15 plastic bobbin in the machine and it sews great but these don't look like the one I see online, they are flat on top not curved like the pictures look to me.

    Thanks for all the help:)

    Hey there Ginger, you need a class 66 bobbin for the machine. You can find them at any Walmart, fabric store, LQS that handles notions. Just remember to buy the metal ones to use in the machine. If all they have are plastic bobbins then you can get a couple of them to wind and test the machine out on but the metal is the best for the machine. I bet once you have the right bobbin in there you will have a very nice sewing machine that will last you for the rest of your life.
