    Sewing Machine [Thread Injector] Genius?

    Hey there,

    I picked this up for FREE on craigslist today. In Supposed working order, but even if it's not ...

    So it is branded a Pfaff, but I can find absolutely nothing about a Pfaff 564, however, I can find at least a little about a Viking 564. The one on the right is mine, and the one on the left is what I can find on the internet. Does anyone here know if it was common for sewing machines under different nameplates?

    [i know, I know take it to my local sewing shop ... but those folks are closed and some of you are pretty darn smart about thread injectors.]

    Thanks for any thoughts

    Same company, different manufacturing plants....

    Most machines are so similar, if you can figure out where the bobbin lies, you can generally run the machine...

    Best of luck! Looks like you have a good find!
