|09:18 pm - I did it!|
Rocky is fixed. Humming along like a singer with perfect pitch, bad pun, Rocky being a Singer Rocketeer sewing machine I have just finished re-working who now has a perfect stitch.
It feels so good to take an old piece of good machinery and make it hum again! This one still needs a cleaning and good oiling, but I got the new tension assembly on and adjusted, the biggest bugaboo for old sewing machines. I tried all the fancy stitches too and damned if they don't work as well -- unheard of on the first go round. the knobs need some de-gumming and a good polish all around is in order, but he sews PERFECTLY!
