Argh! I can't figure out why I can't turn my hand wheel more than a quarter of a turn.
The machine isn't threaded, the whole bobbin case is removed, there's no thread visible anywhere - I have cleaned and oiled everything that my manual told me to...
I've exhausted my list of ideas, but since it was a $100 machine 10 years ago, I'm not really wanting to spend $50 to take it to the grave.
If you have any ideas for me to try, I would eat to hear them.... otherwise I'm going to have to start a thread that's entitled "I have $200 to spend on a new machine... what should I get?"
