Any half decent sewing machine repairer will have them. Otherwise, check online eg eBay for store selling machune parts and send a qustion if they have what you are after.
Good luck!

The clamping yokes for Bernina sewing tables for models 830 and earlier models were hand fitted parts. Welding this may change the geometry so that the table may not fit at all. Additionally the material is diecast AL, not cast iron, and may or may not accept TIG welding applications.

Actually, it sounds like your upper tension is too loose. If the upper tension is too loose, it won't pull the bobbin thread up into the fabric properly. Check out my suggestions on Adjusting Tension and see if that helps.

Model 1425n singer sewing machine's feeddog will not advance the material. The feed doesn't seem to move. I can't locate the level to raise it. I bought a medal feed to replace the rubber one...

How do I change the cutting blade in my Designer 1 Embroidery Machine?

You need to remove the gray cover next to the needle plate and bobbin cover. First remove the bobbin cover, needle plate, hook cover, and bobbin case. Next, take a small straight slot screw driver, about 3mm wide, and insert it under the gray cover that is just left of the hook area. Pry up the cover just slightly, and at the same time slide the cover towards you. It should just pop off. If you having cutting problems, you should the cutter blade, the cutter holder (black plastic piece), the fetcher (gray metal arm), and the thread bread (copper piece with the little velcro piece at the end). Viking has upgraded a couple of these pieces from the original versions, so you should have better cutting results. And of course clean out this area while your at it.

My bobbin case came out of my sewing machine and I can't get it back in correctly. The bobbin case moves around. I have a singer cg-500/550

I just had this same problem and although i could not find the answer online, I managed to fix it.


If you look at the bobbin case there are 3 different tabs sticking out.

First you need to have tab #1 under the main part of the machine, and #3 over top of the small twisted metal piece below the bottom fabric gripper.

The hard part is to get the second tab into the proper spot. I circled the piece that you need to move in red. If you move the little piece by pushing it with a flat screw driver, you can line up the bobbin case so that tab #2 is under the metal piece and the bobbin case will be properly set.

Don't give up! It wasn't easy to get it back but I did it, I'm sure you can too!

How to make swing machine desk

All you need to buy for a sewing machine desk is two 2-drawer file cabinets and a piece of plywood. Just make sure the plywood isn't flimsy and get a piece the width of both cabinets plus an extra 2-3 ft. Lay it on top of the file cabinets and put the cabinets under each end of the plywood leaving the extra 2-3 ft area open in the middle for your chair. You can purchase the cabinets at any Goodwill. They seem to always have a supply of them. You might even find an inexpensive sewing table there! Good luck.

Can't balance top/bottom thread tension-model 158.Bottom thread is a straight line. Have increased top tension to the stop. No effect.Have reduced bobbin tension until bobbin and case fall freely when held...

I disassembled the top thread tension controller consisting of 12-13 pieces, including 2 springs. Since they all fell out on the table I spent about 2 hours learning the proper stacking order on the central shaft.
With a combination of reasoning based on each unique piece shape and trial and error I put it back together, adjusted top and bottom tensions according to the instruction booklet for the machine, tested some stitching, made final adjustments and all worked well.
I don't know what was changed in the process but it worked.

I have a siplicity sewing machine and after taking the bobbin out to clean it I cannot get the bobbin holder to go back intot the machine

I had a similar problem and Rick on this site was kind enough to give me some advice. Lay the machine on its side so you can just place the bobbin mechanism pieces into the bobbin shuttle area. Put the small half moon shaped piece in first, then lay the round piece in with the little notch at the bottom. Loosen the screws that hold the arms that hold the bobbin shuttle in and position them over the small 'bumps' on the bobbin housing. Once you have the arms in position, tighten till firm (not enough to strip the screws) and then set the machine upright and insert the bobbin case with thread.

I really hope I've helped you like Rick did for me.

I've had these machines - with students learning to sew - There are SEVERAL shuttle systems with this brand - if you have a two piece back case that the bobbin shuttle sits in -- these "STORIES" will work.

If not maybe post again - I'll see if I can help - the system is set BACKWARDS no matter the style of bobbin or where it is located on the machine.

You don't the opening location so I'll give you the stories for - front load below needle. The steps will also work with the topload - you just don't have to lie the machine down - if topload you should STAND BEHIND the machine to STACK the parts in as listed below.
If you are looking at the manual - you are looking at the entire process BACKWARD...Even with no manual it is a backward process.

Please don't laugh as you read through this - I taught young children - so this is how I have it memorized...I'm not attempting to "talk down" to you - these are my stories for 15 years with my kids.

Two ways to set this up - depends it you like to sit or stand....and on the size of your machine....and if you have to worry about belts/oil.....please pick what works for you.

- You can lie the machine in your lap or on to of a table - either way make sure it doesn't try to "escape" Sewing machines that get very slick and try to slip away from you.
- the machine thread spindles are facing you (where the thread goes) there are making every attempt to get close enough to poke your hip so you don't let them...(keep kis from breaking or bending spindles)
- handwheel (the circle) is on your left
- the bottom of the machine (the base is far away from you) because no one likes to see a bottom...
- pretend you are a CRANE operator placing parts of steel building parts near or on each other to make a building
- YOU wiill be starting with the swimming pool
- remember a crane operator NEVER sees the same building being built as the workers on the ground do - he sees everything in reverse and backward.
- first pick up the big flat base - put it into the hole to the right of the driver - up like a broken swimming pool - it faces up and on your right. HOLD ON HERE COMES ANOTHER PIECE.
- here comes the other half of the pool facing up the spike diving board is near the base - like a shark hiding (your model may have the HOOK (shark fin) towards your body
-don't let the pieces slip onto the top of each other like bricks because the ground is a little uneven- the pieces of the swimming pool might not set just perfect yet - that is okay - you might have to put one finger in the middle to help steady the load
- now set the ring in be careful there is a small part sticking out and you need to fill the extra space (the metal prong fits into the notch the
- line up the ring and fill in the small existing hole
- now frame the pool with the frame -be careful look at your
black FLIPPERS on each side - you may need to have the bumps up on the frame to hold the pool in place (the frame will fit one of two ways - bumps up or down - the "flippers" should sort of move over and it has a feel of a speed bump - then the pool is secure.
- ONLY AFTER THE FLIPPERS ARE SET is it "safe" to move the pool.
- If you did it wrong - the pool will fall out in your lap or on the table when you set the machine up. If your pool falls out - start again.

Her is a way that works for MANY KIDS - I JUST GET A HEADACHE:
Turn machine AWAY from you - lean over the top a replace parts in "opposite order to what the picture looks like. (I may miss a step I don't have an exact parts list in front of my face- so adjust as necessary
REMEMBER MACHINE IS TURNED AWAY FROM YOU (and I taught young kids - so please pardon my reference points....
- case (SOLID HUNK OF BREAD( back of shuttle (more solid back - GOES IN FIRST open faced out away from your belly button ON RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR belly button )
- the HOOK half of shuttle it will be ON LEFT-hook on top sits to LEFT of your belly button (may face up towards your face or down to the table
- a little on top of other piece...hold BOTH PARTS IN - like you have a very fat piece of cheese and you are pushing on it so it won't tip off the bread)
- now take the round ring (may have a metal mini TOOTHPICK sticking up - guide the Toothpick into the spot between the "teeth" there is a "notch" sometimes on the bottom - sometimes on the top depends on model
- move the fingers OFF your cheese - let the ring take over the job (of holding two pieces into the sandwich)
- then like a well made sandwich put the BREAD on top of the entire sandwich. the "front plate - often a square frame that fits -
- bring up the BLACK BRIDGES (the two flippers olives) to NAIL the entire sandwich into the table) NOW LET GO. If it all falls out we didn't have our SANDWICH meat smooth enough. Try again.

Hope this helps.
Mrs. G. :) (sorry for any typos - I'm up working way TOO EARLY or WAY TOO LATE!)
