If your machine is 40-50 years old, it might be a Singer Featherweight portable. (If it is, you have one of the very best machines ever made!) On the Featherweights, the flat of the needle faces left (and the needle is threaded from right to left). The bobbin goes in a bobbin case; you'll see a small notch when you look down on the bobbin in the case. That's where the thread goes. I'll email you direct with more information.

Almost all needle screws are the same size. Just check your yellow pages for sewing machine repair shops near by.Most of them would have it

Try and loosen the screw, and use a magnet to pullout the broken piece. It likely slightly bent in there so you may need a pair of tweezers as well

I went online and found a diagram that showed where the screw was to loosen or tighten the drop in bobbin thread (it faces the front) but it couldn't be seen until I slid the sliding door totally off. I had to use a flashlight and very small screwdriver and was able to loosen the screw a tiny bit and it solved my problem. I've been sewing for over 40 years and didn't know how to adjust the tension on a drop in bobbin until now. You learn something new everyday!
