"I have one other question that maybe should be in a separate thread but here it is: There is a pin on the tensioner that apparently wears a little and make the tension adjustment very sensitive. I tried to buy one of these at a local sewing machine repair store and they didn't know what I needed at all. I've tried to find it as a part number but again can't find it.
Where is this pin? Usually, when there's anything wrong with the tension, you just buy a whole new tension assembly. They're not very expensive, under $10. Here is a link for a new tension: http://www.ebay.com/itm/THREAD-TENSI...item1c29b5bc98
No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
