    Is that a technical term?

    That seems to have fixed it, although it seems bassakwards to me.

    Thanks. I'm a happy Gringo, at least until the next disaster. I really should get a manual for this thing.

    If you're looking at the needle, the groove down the length of the needle should face you. That usually means the flat is towards the back of the machine...

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    I did the very same thing with my Necchi today... seems like the flat should face the other way, and I can't see well enough to tell which way the flute is facing. Rolled it forward carefully, and CHUNK! the tip of the needle fetched up against the foot.

    LOL! I hear that. I just now was able to discerne the flute (groove), and I've been looking at that bloody needle all day.

    I think Acer nailed it, but your way seems to work, too. Tomorrow, when the light is better, I'll fool with it some more.
