You can also try eBay. If not lucky there, try finagling one using a nail with a drinking straw over the nail to hold the spool.

Hobbylock 797 how to thread


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.

I can't find the way to change the left needle.


You can order a manual here - http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Pfaff_Manuals/794_796_Hobbylock_Instruction_Manual.htm

In the meantime, contact your local Pfaff dealer. Ask if someone can help you if you bring the serger in.

Price of hobbylock 794 in todays market.


Price depends upon how much the machine has been used & what condition it is in. My hobbylock 794 has barely been touched since it was first made and they advised I just throw it out instead when I took it in for a little 'freshening up' at Quality sewing & vacuum in Washington! Everywhere else I've had great feedback that this is a good serger, so check out what similar machines are selling for on Ebay... you could get $100~$400 for your trusty serger {depending on supply & demand}.

How do you get the blades to cut on a hobbylock 794 serger


It should just cut. Don't know too much about this machine as I'm new owner, but from what I can gather, either you need a new blade, or the upper knife is disengaged. The metal knob inside the threading area should be turned downwards, engaging the upper knife. The upper knife doesn't usually need replacing unless damaged, apparently. Hope this helps somewhat.

You have a timing problem which needs a technician to repair. to do this properly, you need some special gauges which, generally , are not found just anywhere. Take it a technician and get an estimate before you leave it.

If the needle bar is no longer available, the current needle bar can be repaired by cutting new threads in it and changing the screw. Not simple but not rocket science either.Most mechanics can do this.

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!
