Question about Singer 5050 Mechanical Sewing Machine
When I was putting on a new needle for my 5050 Singer, the little wire tension (I don't have a name for it!) that attaches itself to the needle structure, came off as well. The problem is, is I don't have a clear picture of it to see how to re-connect it. I have tried pulling down pictures but they are all too small, and my manual doesn't have one of it. It seems to fit around the little screw that holds the needle in place but I can't work out how.
The only other alternative is to drive down to a Sewing Machine Shop and hopefully find one the same as mine that will help. I'm hoping I don't have to go to that extent yet, and you could download a picture of it in position for me.
It is a thread guide and if you don't reconnect it your machine will still work.Don't worry about it too much.
To reinstall it you need to place one end around the screw in such a position so that the guide will travel behind the needle bar, to the left side of the needle bar and then to the front of the needle guide. When you have it in this position you should have no real problem screwing it back on.

Top tension about 4 or 5, use a good mercerised thread only, make sure you do not have the bobbin tesnion too tight, slacken the screw anti clockwise on the bobbin case if it is
