The legs that hold the thread tray to the base of the serger are broken. Is there somewhere online I can view the parts catalog to determine which piece(s) to order.
1. The closest Bernina store is 150 mile roundtrip.
2. They don't return my calls.
3. Google searches for parts only return, needles, loopers, pedals, etc.
4. Manuals are not posted on www.berninausa for this model.

I don't have a resource for you but this particular model is from the mid-80s so you may not be able to find something for it via a regular dealer. If you have any independent sewing machine repair fellows in your area, they may have something that would work for you from their inventory of used bits and bobs. BTW this model is superb - I've had mine initial one since mid-80s and bought another one used about 10 years ago. They're both running like tops still - one set up in white thread and one set up in black in the sewing room

I bought a Bernette 334DS brand new in the early 90's. Not giving it up! Does a great stitch. The instruction manual does not list part #'s. Where the spool pins are attached is called the "thread stand". It's a pretty good-sized piece altogether.
Have you checked ebay? Sometimes people part out machines there.
ETA: Maybe I''m not thinking of the same part as you are? There is a "waste collector" that sits under the front part of the machine to catch what is cut by the knives. That just slips under the machine for easy in & out. Does not attach in any way.

I've had my 334DS since 1992 - still love it, had exactly one repair. Do you need a scan of a page in the manual? I have mine, and I have the supplementary book/binder they sold with the serger.
