Trying to insert the bobben some peices fell out and cant figure out to put it back together

Go to and download a free manual. Then enlarge the diagrams, so that you can see how it goes together. Save the download to your computer, so you will always have a copy. Then go to page 33 and you will see how your bobbin case goes back together

Can't reassemble the shuttle/hook in Singer sewing machine - it is Model # 1120 - an inexpensive machine but works great. It jammed and I released the retaining clamps (?) and the other little parts fell...

Turn the hand wheel until the hook race is in the left position..replace the hook to right side...replace the hook race cover..smooth end to the bottom..and snap back the hook retaining ready for inserting bobbin case...Good Luck
