Your taking the lock apart for what reason? If you need a key for this lock, I would highly recommend a locksmith. You won't be able to make a key for this unless you have the proper equipment.

Need to replace key switch

Key switch in doo or steering column. Doors are easy to take apart but steering columns are not. Go to and register your vehicle with them. Look up door lock/ignition lock in parts/repair and they will give you full instructions on how to do the job.

1948 chevy thriftmaster bench seat adjusting

Not sure because this was 20 years before I was born,but the 70's erra seats has the handle with the fork/finger locking teeth with the return spring on the drivers side and there was a tiny hole on the inside where the wire goes.On the under side of the seat attached to the steel wavey springs there were loops just like hog rings that were used to route the wire to the locking lever on the other side.If this is the type of set up you could also use the hard plastic air line.Any heavy truck parts place will have it and it comes in many sizes.Would be easy to rout your wire thru.Well hope the helps and good luck.

4. Tube of lock tight
5. steering wheel removal tool Rent it from Schucks
6. steering wheel spring compression tool Rent it as well.
7. Two dental picks to remove spring.
Now make thew wheels straight and pull the horn button off should just pop off, next you will see a nut 3/4 inch remove the nut now find the right size of threaded bolts out of the kit and put them in the holes with puller over the steering column remove steering wheel. Forgot to mention remove the metal cup and plastic ring held on by a3 philips screws. This is your horn button, next put the U shaped compression tool on the bolt that you took the nut off and compress the spring 1/4 of an inch to 3/8's of an inch. Now take the picks and get them under steel ring slide the ring over the steering bolt and pull clamp off now remove plastic plate you are now where you can get to the 2 screws on top to tighten the steering wheel. you will see a screw just at the end of the cylinder lock remove the one screw and pull the cylinder lock out, put a drop of lock tight on each screw and tighten down look to see if you see a wire by the lock ring is sticking up it will have a 45 bend in the copper wire there will be two one side by side this has to be pulled out along with the plastic holder that holds the two wires in this also holds the lock in as well as the one screw, install the new lock put lock tight on the screw and install new cylinder lock and key once you have done all of this leave it apart and get back to me so I can tell you how to remove the bueaty ring to get to the screw on the back side.

The needle thread will not pick up the bobbin thread

It looks right but its not. Try looking on the internet for threading instructions. The bobbin winds in two directions, I have never saw a Bernina but I have 2 new machines and the thread goes in and then threads back to the left. Its hard to describe. But if the bobbin isn't right it will not pick up the thread. Write to Bernina for instructions. There are websites that have the directions for free.
