Hi! New here! I'm hoping someone might share some advice on replacing the paddle spring on my 29-4. I'm about to go nuts trying to figure this out! If I position the needle so that it is fully descended I can see screws that attach the thread check spring to the needle bar. However, these tiny screws are inconveniently halfway covered by the presser foot bar (where it surrounds and swivels around the needle bar) and I cannot reach them. Is there a secret to accessing these screws on the thread check spring? They are so obnoxiously almost accessible so I'm hoping there's an easy fix to this. If you do have to remove the whole needle bar does anyone have any tips? The pivot pin seems to be in their awfully tight and am afraid to really wale on it without some experienced advice. I've attached a photo, i know the quality is poor but home it gets the point across. Thanks! Kelsey
I appologize I originally posted this in Sewing leather (a rookie mistake) I didn't see an easy way to move it. Can anybody give me some guidance, see below: I have an old singer 42-5 machine I have used lightly over the last 4 years. I tried to use it today, and it is horible out of time. I am comfortable with adjusting the timing, but I am not sure where to adjust it? I imagine all older singers adjust similarly, so If anybody has any insight please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org\. This machine uses a long oscillating bobbin vice a rotating bobbin. I have a picture of the bottom of the machine, with a crude arrow showing the setscrew I believe I loosen and adjust, but I would like some guidance from any old hands out there. Thanks SDGengineer
