 Sad I spent, LITERALLY, 2 days playing with the tension, etc. last month while I was temporarily without a job.

I took the bobbin assembly apart, as far as it would go with out getting a screw driver involved, and I think that made the problem worse.

Maybe that thing will get played with this weekend. I'll post more pictures if I get it to work without a trip to the repair shop.  Smiley

Anybody got a clue about how to fix a sewing machine?

Please take a look at my webpage and see if you have a clue.


I'm at a loss for what to do. I've only used the machine to make ONE pair of pants a few years ago. I lent it to a room mate to use while I was out of town (She swore she knew how to sew) and it has not worked since.

Craftser has really made me want to sew ALOT more.

PLUS...my S.O. bought these (http://www.illig.com/cgi-local/SoftCart.100.exe/IL18609.html?L+scstore+knbm2171fff5ccf5+1088668752) pants. The portion of the pants with the all the pockets is removable - so of course he wants me to make him a trillion pairs of the base pants so he can trade out pockets. He's big on pockets....he's been wearing military style pants for more than half his 34 years.

Have you considered MS Access? It's a full fledged database program, instead of a just a spreadsheet. Access will allow you to look at your information in a variety of different ways. Smiley

I love # 1! Great idea!!!

The circles should be really easy to measure. just tie a length of string - the same as half the height of the circle - to a pencil and tie the other to a push pin. stick the push pin in the wall where you want to start and draw a circle with the pencil using the push pin as your pivot point. You can use the assembly to measure the rest too.

 Smiley Well - You could cast resin cylinders or boxes and carve them. Most hobby shops (read as train or model shop - not arts and crafts) sell some sort of castable polyurethane resin. It usually comes in white, yellow, or clear. Avoid the yellow it tends to be hard to carve and breaks easily according to my S.O.  If you get extra special fancy you can make molds of the designs you want and cast it in resin. Resin is EXTREMELY toxic pre-casting and difficult to work with - but I have witnessed the process first hand and it is possible to do at home.  The csting method is great if you plan to make multiples of the same piece.
