Can this sewing machine be saved? continued
In this photo you can see the spring wire mechanism extending from a screw on the machine to the feed dog lifter. This was the piece that I thought I had broken, but Steven figured out it was simply unhooked. WHEW. Just try to find that obscure one hundred year old part out there.
There is still some adjusting to do. I found that the feed dogs did not lift after I had re-assembled this. After studying the "before" photo, I succeeded in making some adjustments. It isn't perfect, but that is for another day.
