Service manuals are very difficult to find as they were not intended for the general public's use. Sometimes you can find them for sale on eBay and other auction sites. If you also search for the machine's parts diagram, you will find some helpful information.

Is bernina 930 a low shank or high shank machine


Bernina has feet that are specific to their machines only. They have old and new style feet depending when the machine was made. You cannot put generic low, high, slant or snap on feet on a Bernina sewing machine.

Does this machine have a low shank --- or high shank?


High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc
If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop

Just acquired a model 6700 from Mom never used, is


Hi! Almost certainly! If I can find parts (and I can) for my turn-of the-last century-treadle machines, you'll be able to find parts for your Necchi. Here are a couple of good web sites for sewing machine parts. If you don't see what you need, you can email them and ask.
http://www.statewidesewing.com/#FAQ
http://sewingstyle.com/

That's for more specialized parts--needles, bobbins, and pressure feet are readily available for amost any machine. You just need to know what class of bobbin your machine uses (check your manual) and if you machine has a low shank, high shank, slant shank, or uses snap-on pressure feet. Your manual should say, but if it does, look at the machine. If there's about 1/2" clearance between the pressure foot and the throat plate, it's a low shank. High than that, it's a high shank. Slant shank machines have a definite forward slant to the shank of the pressure foot; they're pretty distinctive. Snap-on pressure feet have a little bar--you lower the pressure bar onto them and they snap in place. The snap-on unit can be removed (at least it can in the machines I own)--look for a thumbscrew on the side of the pressure bar--and with that off, they can use most low-shank feet.
I'm a fan of older machines!
Hope this helps!

I have lost the zipper foot and button hole foot, and I have a wedding dress and 5 bridesmaid dresses to make....have tried everywhere, where can I get new feet????


I've found replacement feet at Jo-ann's and Hancock's. The most important thing to know is whether your machine is a low shank, high shank, or slant shank. Other than that, or perhaps (depending on where you live) a a full-service sewing machine retailer or maybe a quilt shop, you'll need to order them online. Try http://sewingpartsonline.com/ they have a qood selection of pressure feet. I've found that pretty much, within the low shank, high shank, and slant shank categories, feet are pretty much interchangeable.

Good luck!

My Necchi 681c has snap on feet,can other makes used with it


Yes, probably. You'll need to unscrew the little gizmo that holds the snap on feet, then you can use that same screw and hole in the shank to screw on other types of feet. The most important thing is to know whether you have a low shank, high shank, or slanted shank machine, because feet of one type can't be used on other types (low shank feet can't be used on high shank or slanted shank machines, for example).

Ruffler for viking 1050


The available ruffler is a generic part. But, it is made for most Low Shank machines. ANd no, you can not change the shank from high to low. Doing that or attempting to do that will not allow the needle to go all the way down as it would set for a high shank.
