Question about Brother XL-5130 Mechanical Sewing Machine
The metal attachment that holds the needle has come off the rod and to be frank I do not see how it attaches.
Generally, there will be a cut out inside the 'needle clamp' that will allow it to only go on the 'needle arm' one way 'round as it slides over the shaft.
The screw to tighten generally comes in from Right to Left.
If this does not help entirely, try taking a look at any other machine, mum's, friend's, in a store....etc and take note of the arrangement.
If you have a friendly local sewing shop where you buy threads etc, ask if they could show you.......plead accident, unattended young fingers, whatever......the easiest is to compare a good one ans see how it should be.
Hope this is of some little use.
