Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
I bought a used pfaff 4760 hobbylock and found out it was missing all of the accessories that it originally came with. I thought I could buy what was missing but have found out nothing is available anymore. I would really like the feet (rolled hem foot...) and the accessory box. I have read that the 4760 was a re-release of the 788 and am wondering if parts from the 788 would work on the 4760. I can find a 788 being sold on craigslist but don't want to buy something that won't work. Any solutions and/or ideas would be appreciated. Is there somewhere that would sell used parts off of old machines? Thanks.

The needles are changed by inserted the hex wrench into what looks to be holes on the front and left side where the needles go into the machine.I'm not sure what size the hex wrench is but it's pretty small. From the manual,
"Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out." and
"Inserting needle: When the neddle bar is at the highest position, insert a new needle in the needle holder, making sure that the groove of the needle faces you. Push the needle as far up as it will go and tighten the needle clamp screw." "Removing Needle: Unplug the machine. Turn the handwheel counterclockwise to raise the needle bar to its highest position. Loosen the needle clamp with the allen wrench and pull the needle out."
The machine takes DB x 1, or 1738 needles, and a size 14 needle is recommended.
Hope this helps!

Hi. I believe your Pfaff tipmatic 1027 dates to the early 1980s. A quick check for a bobbin case (as an example) for your machine showed that sew4less.com carries them and other parts for your machine.

The hobbylocks all thread in much the same fashion. There is a diagram for a four thread hobbylock on this website. It would be better if you found a Pfaff dealer to show you as it is quite complicated.
Once you have it threaded, always cut the old threads at the spool and knot new ones on and pull through. You will have to thread the needles as the knots will not pass through but it does save an awful lot of frustration when needing new colours on the spools.
