Followers of this blog (or the occasional visitor) may have noticed the few photos recently posted of the inner workings of a Singer 500A, aka "the Rocketeer". You'll have noted, too, that there was no accompanying caption, or explanation of their reason for being.
In response to an inquiry from an interested party, I've taken a few photographs and posted them here for that person's benefit as I "talk" her through a minor, but important adjustment. Ah, the wonders of the internet, where I can lend a hand through the "ether" in hopes of getting another well-respected machine back on the road (I sure hope it's helped).
I doctor the images to highlight certain area or parts that I then refer to when carrying on an email conversation about options for adjustments and repair.
Many photos that I take for purposes such as this are fairly short lived. I remove them after I have solved a problem, or when others have solved a problem for me. Then it's back to this blog's original purpose of showcasing the different sewing machines currently in my possession.
No new machines for the past week or two. But always on the lookout.
