Frustration and Disappointment
I do not have sewing to share today. Hit another road block with my baby blue machine head. I will not detail the process of discovery because I need to move on, but suffice to say parts were missing and have been ordered. Photos and brief summary:
The faceplate and tension assembly on the left is the Singer 15-90. The one on the right is the clone. Notice anything missing?
How about now?
Here— I’ll make it easy. Top row is the Singer, bottom is the clone:
So, they look like the same size and shape, don’t they? I should be able to swap parts and get a working set? Nope.
See differences here? Singer parts left and top, clone bottom and right.
also here; Singer left, clone right. See the notch on the mount for the tension assembly? Also the different thread path? The clone threads left to right, and the Singer right to left. So I can’t do a simple swap of the entire plate and tension assembly. And the notch means I can’t mount the Singer tension assembly on the clone, either.
So that was my evening last night and morning. That and researching VAT. But I have a shoulder kitten, so it’s all ok:
I’m going to go listen to an audio book and spin for an hour, then commence cooking for a feast. Hope your day is proceeding with less frustration!
