Question about Elna Sewing Machines
Elna Tavaro SA swiss made machines all take a 720100 bobbin, looks like this
Flat on the bottom and 7 holes on top and slightly dished. Dont use anything else. You can buy them aftermarket from www.sewingpartsonline.com or any Elna dealer and I have seen them in my local Spotlight in Australia.

SOURCE: bobbin casing for elna 8000
There is one small metal piece 3/4 inch long and shaped like the letter "T" that fits under the right hand needle plate snap one screw. Attach to underneath square nut and can be seen sticking out from the top holding the bobbincase in place after the top plate is replaced and everything is back together. If this is not it, a picture would help as I have repair 100's of Elna 5000 to 9000's.

i guess i thought i could get some help with starting the dismantling. but of course, except for chit chat, if i don't pay, my affiliation with this site is useless. my machine is 36 years old. i found sewusa that had drawings, but only limited number. yes, when i go at it cold, i will post how i removed the old gear, so someone else can get this help. cheers

On these machines, the shaft UNDER the centering wheel fits into a bushing, and this is what normally rotates. The wheel is fixed to the shaft. Penetrating oil needs to be placed UNDER the centering wheel but above the bushing. We solved this problem on two machines by saturating dental floss (the kind used to clean braces) with penetrating oil. Insert the floss UNDER the plastic wheel around the shaft, with the two ends sticking out the slot for the centering wheel. Then cycle the floss in and out of the area around the shaft. Let it soak and repeat. It takes some time, but it worked, and did not require disassembly of the machine. Greased Lightning also was used. Kithen grippers help with rotating the wheel.
