Hi 

hope this is right section 

 

is there anything special about needleplate screws ..?

iv been to specialist nut n bolt shops but the ones come away with are either not the right thread - or possibly the thread they are going into is fubured  ...

Either way. the head is too big .Should  be 6mm
 

TIA

They will be metric thread. Contact an industrial sewing machine dealer to get the right parts. Don't ruin the threads to save a few bucks on local, wrong pitch parts.

Most industrial sewing machine dealer should have them.

And it would not surprise me if they have the same threading as singer 111 needle plate screws but I´m not 100% sure

Thant surprises me cause CS is selling OEM screws as it seems.

You never know if one of the previous owners bubba`ed something on the machine. Used machines can be tricky sometimes.

Turns out the nearside screw hole is fubared , screw just drops in :unsure: .....other side is better Thankfully !

 

must taken a long time to get like that 

i would naturally assumed the machine would be harder than the screw

The screws from college sew have a 7mm head which would leave them proud of the plate ...

 

perhaps they are for a non OE plate
