  1. Awesome. Thanks. The only manuals I can find are a user manual with some tech instructions for settings and a parts book that is sort of hard to read because it is a copy of a copy that has been scanned.

  2. From the dis-assembly, These three screws I'm having trouble remembering where they go. They definitely came from the machine but there doesn't seem to be any place obvious for them. I know for certain they did not come from inside of the head. Perhaps from the front some place but everything that is needed such as thread guides and tension discs are in place with all the screws. Nothing on the back looks like it takes a small screw like these. Maybe underneath where the bobbins go someplace? Thing is, nothing obvious there either and all the working pieces are secure properly and working.

  3. Once I get a couple more in the mail... I was able to figure out the presser bar, the flat spring for presser tension based on the photos posted and a couple more that were sent to me via email. I'm sure the rest of the linkage in teh back is for a knee lifter which I don't have so I won't mount or use under the table. The linkage will go back on the machine though. Next will be the needle rocker and connector link assembly. There was broken stud I'm waiting on in order to put it together. Once that is assembled, I"ll need to know how ot set the presser bar. All the collars that go on there I have in the right order but there are no markings as to the initial height for locking all that stuff down. I looked in the user manual and it mentions setting the needle bar but not the presser bar. Only distance between the two. The bottom end I have a very firm grasp of and can assemble and time with no effort.

  4. Need to know how the head goes together. Gunnery Sergeant of Marines "I would like it if I were challenged mentally at my job and not feel like I'm mentally challenged." - Co-worker
  5. Thanks. In my searches I have found so many different ways these are set up. Could get another shot of the back to the left of lift lever? What model is yours? 112w...?

  6. So I got myself in a bit of a jam. I picked up a singer 112W115 that needed rebuilt. It was free if I could fix it. Well, I got the bushing, hand wheel and stitch length adjuster back on... but the arm that houses the needle bar and presser foot bar and the parts on the back I'm having trouble with. There are no exploded views on the net for these machines. I know, I should have taken photos before I took stuff part. Here is the help I'm looking for: Does anyone have a singer 112w115 or 116 that they can take photos of the inside so I can see how it all fits? Also the back where the lift lever is? All of the back as well? Gunnery Sergeant of Marines "I would like it if I were challenged mentally at my job and not feel like I'm mentally challenged." - Co-worker
  7. Everyone is certainly entitled to their opinion. Great company for you and probably a few others. Not for everyone. There seems to be this thing in our sport that if certain people endorse something then it should be good for every and the grey area gets skipped. Then the ones who dussagree for good reason get crap in return. Kind of a shame really. Not saying that is what you are imying, just saying in general.

  8. Paragear sucks...pricey and they can't tell you what shipping is until you made the purchase. Last time I used them I got charged a big shipping bill for next to no product. No where on the net have I found a vendor that couldn't tell you up front what shipping was before you checked out. I found a great price for .241 luf nickel coated brass #0 at lord and hodge in CT. I ordered from them. Gunnery Sergeant of Marines "I would like it if I were challenged mentally at my job and not feel like I'm mentally challenged." - Co-worker
  9. These days most anything civilian is nickel coated Brass and only looks like stainless steel. Last I saw anything stainless was on a military rig and they still use #2 grommets on the risers. #0 and long shank or as I found out a longer length under flange measurement (LUF). The ones found in paragear are all .175 LUF. For risers you need about a .2 and up. I have been looking but can't seem to find any suppliers for a "long shank" #0 grommet. Which is why you may see a #2 being used since they have the longer LUF measurement. Speaking of a source- anyone know where to find #0 grommets with a longer than .175 length?

  10. Personal choice. There is more than one way to make things work and still be safe. I got it. It's all good. Gunnery Sergeant of Marines "I would like it if I were challenged mentally at my job and not feel like I'm mentally challenged." - Co-worker
  11. You are the second person I have talked to that said to use the short housing for the cutaway handle. Seem more expensive than the purpose made mental inserts. Appreciate the help everyone. I did manage to get to home depot and pick up some polyethylene. I'm sure it will do the trick after actually handling it.

  12. Have you had real world experience? Ie: a cutaway with twisted risers and the home depot stuff in the risers? Gunnery Sergeant of Marines "I would like it if I were challenged mentally at my job and not feel like I'm mentally challenged." - Co-worker
  13. Yeah- I started jumping in the early 2000s. I know the part you are talking about with the strong free bags in the dual hawk system. but those are way to rigid. Or maybe just seems that way since it is littel chunks that won't bend. I'm pretty sure it is just High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) but in private message I'm having a discussion about it and it seems it could just be regular polyethylene.

  14. Did a search, didn't find the info I was looking for. Does anyone know what the material for the plastic housings are that Sunpath and other manufacturers use? I think it could be HDPE but I don't know. Gunnery Sergeant of Marines "I would like it if I were challenged mentally at my job and not feel like I'm mentally challenged." - Co-worker
  15. Cool- unless you have more than one copy to sell is there anything wrong with posting so others can get a copy? Gunnery Sergeant of Marines "I would like it if I were challenged mentally at my job and not feel like I'm mentally challenged." - Co-worker
