You are awesome for doing that!! I not only figured out how to get the
back off, I have been removing parts from it to sell on ebay. The screw to release the back on a Viking 190
is in the back center below the handle. If it is not completely tight the machine will not sew either.
I got the back off by lifting straight up after loosening the screw. It was a mess inside. Thanks so
much for what you do! I have been able to help a lot of people out by being able to do basic
repairs. Blessings to you! Emily

I got an old Morse zig zag that was filthy, rusty, and beaten up at a yard sale for 50cents. It looked like I'd
paid too much! I had to use a breaker bar to free the machine as nothing else worked. However, with
help from your website, I was able to adjust the timing on the gear and on the needle bar, clean, re-oil, and sew
with this fabulous machine!! I sold it!! Your ezines and help have been what got me interested in
repairing sewing machines and really learning how to sew. I can't thank you enough for your help and
Hi. Thank you very much for the ecourse I have learned a lot. In
fact, i rebuilt my machine, and it works. It surprised me. I didn't think I could pull it
off. Or should I say, put it together again. When I started the machine refused to move at all.
Now it works and I'm proud of myself; but like I said, if it wasn't for your website I'd still be looking for a
sewing machine. I could never thank you enough. Cash is very tight for me, and i couldnt efford to go
out and buy one. So I batered for the one I have. Now the lady I got it from thought I was crazy.
Well today I called her to tell her I was sewing on that machine. She told me she tried everything even had a
professional look at it. They told her it was a lost cause. She was shocked or maybe she didn't believe me. So as
soon as I can, I'm going to make her something to show her.

" I own a Thompson industrial sewing machine. I had a problem with my sewing machine breaking the thread when
I attempted to sew with it. I took it to numerous sewing machine repair companies in the Dayton, Ohio area
and all of them said that did not repair industrial sewing machines. After I read your lesson on sewing
machine needles, I ordered a new needle for may sewing machine. Installation of the new needle solved my
thread breaking problem. My sewing machine now works very well. Thanks for saving lots of $$$ on
sewing machine repair. Most of the companies which I contacted about repairing my sewing machine had a
minimum service charge of approximately $80.00 for home or non-industrial sewing machines. Thank You."

I can't tell you how much I like your great stuff. I tried two other ebooks from others online, and was very
frusted. Where they gave me a few pages and nothing usable, you gave me more than I could have hoped
for. Thank you. I am studying the Antique book right now and working on an old Singer Treadle.
This is fun.

"Between you and me, we made a church womens sewing group very happy. These women make quilts, blankets,
aprons, etc, to help support charities, from abused women to homeless. Most of these women are on fixed
incomes and cann't afford repair or cleaning of their machines. That's where you and I come in. Again thank

"I have been a mechanic for several years, but auto mechanics are a dime a dozen. Now, I am going to be the
only Sewing Machine Mechanic in my town. Thank you for your great book. Not only does it explain how to
turn what screw, it reveals why. Thanks."
Don Wilson, Missouri
"I was skeptical, but your ebooks and resources are great. There
are literally thousands of pages of sewing machine repair tips, tricks, and stuff. I could never have gotten
my new job as a Sewing Machine Mechanic without your help. I love repairing sewing machines in Peg's Sewing

"Down here people rely on themselves pritty much. Problem is, my wife's sewing machine was always a point of
trouble. I told here to get a new one, but she refused. I tried to fix it a dozen times. I even took it 60 miles to
a city sewing shop. -- This time I got it right. Thank you for showing me how to fix my wife's sewing machine. This
was the best $40 I have spent in a long time."
Steven Stump, St. James Mo.
"I was afraid to throw my money away on stuff from the internet.
But I am so glad I decided to buy your course. I am having so much fun. I fixed six machines last week in my
garage. I actually made $400.00. Thank you for all your help."
