    this is a horizontal spool pin that is connected to the inside of the machine. My machine does not have a "top lid" . It has a front portion and a back portion. It looks like I can take the back portion off, and the spool pin is attached under that.

    This is a horizontal spool pin that is connected to the inside of the machine at the top of the back portion,, behind the carry handle. my machine does not have a top lid. it has a back and front. it looks like I can take off the bottom and the back and maybe get to the pin from there, but I don't want to ruin my machine.

    my sewing machine is a 6510 scholastic model. It does not have a top lid, it has a front panel and a back panel. The spindle is horizontal The spindle assembly is inside of the back panel, next to the carry handle. The assembly is one-piece molded plastic with a square at one end that has a small hole in it. The square part should go inside the back portion of the sewing machine. Your directions don't seem to match my machine.

The spool pins are the ones on the top lid.
Those are plastic, and you can:
1 Remove the top lid, and flip up lid. Then carefully remove the little clips that hold the pattern panel in place. Push the spool pins out from the bottom
2 Use a small drill bit, drill through the center, and dig them out. If drilling, only go about 1/8 inch or less, so you do not drill through the pattern panel inside the top lid
3 Try punching them out from the top into the top lid area

usually use a Moto Tool, or Dremel, very fine dental type bit, and drill through the center of them. Then you can work them out with a small tension screwdriver.

But perhaps the best is to remove the inner pattern panel and push them out the top from the bottom side.

I do suggest removing the top lid, and then undo the two springs that hold the flip up lid in place. Work on it with the flip up lid removed. Makes it easier to fiddle with.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

It's a bit difficult for a layman , and you need not to take it apart if you have mechanical aptitude.

There are a couple ways of removing the old spool pins.
These are the ones on the top lid?

3 Try punching them out from the top into the top lid area (not my suggested way, but sometimes works)

Hope this helps

Scholastic 6510. Where do I oil it?


Is there a maintenance section in the manual that instructs how and what to clean? If so, does it mention anything about oil? If not, then it is likely yours is a computerized machine and may not require oiling.

I'm not sure what you're asking. If you're asking how you can replace the spool pin that is on the machine, you don't need to. Just put your spool in the back of the machine, away from the sewing area on the right, and put it in a coffee cup or Mason jar, and feed the thread from there. Many owners of embroidery machines--which are just sewing machines with an embroidery unit attached--routinely do that--it tends to feed more evenly that way.

I have a singer scholastic sewing machine 6510 the manual doesn't say anything about oiling it, does it automatically oil itself?


Normally any lubrication is required only when there is a friciton with dirt accumulation . Since the moving parts are set with lubrication it is not necessary to repeat any oiling unless you feel the machine moves with a friction. If so check out on the moving shaft for tiny holes to be fed with oil , just need to doze lightly on the moving parts, bushes and rollers of the main shaft.

I have a Singer Scholastic 6510 and when the needle is going down the thread is not catching.


Remove the bobbin. Thread your top thread just as normal. Now turn the wheel toward you and watch the area where the bobbin normally be. You should notice a sharp object (hook) pick up that thread just as you continue to turn the wheel. If it doesn't pick it up then the needle and hook aren't meeting at just the right time. This will mean that your machine needs to be timed.

I have a singer machine. Have not used it yet. Got it out of the box by the handle and it looks like the horizonal spool pin broke off. Is this replaceable? Or is this spool pin removable If so how do...


Do you have the manual with it, refer to this to find out if the spool is removable.

if you don't have one, then go to http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html, type in your model number and click "search" to find it.

Some machines will have two spool holders so you can twin sew but as long as you have one left the machine is useable.

Spool Pin Broke off


Ask you local Singer dealer, be armed with the model number when you call.
Freestanding spool holders can be bought (or made.)
