Greger you are so correct, that has already happened.

A friend who is a toolmaker tradie has already machined the correct thread onto the only thread guide post I could find on line.

Thanks Hendrick, the table arrangement is very dodgy (Australian for inadequate), at the heaviest part of the machine the whole thing is supported by only an inch wide piece of wood.  So I have epoxied fibre-glass between the layers. and added extra glass underneath. :)

Oh, she’ll be safe then, after all the pampering!

Cheers, Hendrick

Just for fun; on a recent trip to eastern european counties I saw machines labelled "JUKKI", imported from China...

Oh dear, Henry Hall, that would be funny.

On the other hand, if it weren't for Chinese manufacturers I couldn't get all the tiny screws and spare parts to build this thing up again.  Yesterday I was "learning" about the hook shaft assembly. In tapping out the post from the bottom of the hook shaft saddle, which was formerly damaged and non-adjustable, I immediately smashed the hook shaft up and snapped off the bobbin case opening lever. Luckily I can get a new one for $25 AUD rather than 21 GBP with 45 GBP postage.

Now at least the bobbin post is free in its housing in the saddle.

Can you manage adjusting the timing? That’s the one thing I never touch, especially on non rotary hook machines... Also, but you probably know, while the parts are apart, take some time to thoroughly polish the hook, race and bobbincase with a good metal polish. Say as if it where the chrome parts on your Bentley... You won’t believe the difference that makes.

Cheers, Hendrick
