Does anyone have any ideas? You can find every old sewing machine part known to man on Ebay, other retailers, and private sellers on the 'net ,but try finding someone who has a stock pile of old serger parts laying around. I have Googled, Binged and Yahoo!'d until my fingers are numb.

Do any of you know where the serger grave yard is?

The store I work at recycles any part it can to keep DNR (Do Not Repair) machines out of the landfill.

There is a yahoo group called wefixit that deals only in older model sewing machines and I have seen some sergers mentioned there as well. They might be able to help you

It would seem a spool pin would be an easy find. Maybe a local shop that does their own repairs could fabricate one for you.

i just brought an old hobby lock serger to my local SPCA thrift shop, this afternoon. Have you checked any thrift shops?

I got a spool pin! Surprisingly it was in the box with the serger when I unpacked it. I bought it off Ebay and the pin was missing in all the pictures so I figured I'd better start a search. Turns out there was no need. The serger looks brand new. I can't believe the condition - the accessories are still in the original sealed packages from 1985. When I started it up it had a terrible screeching squeal. I oiled every place metal moved against metal and it still squealed. I turned it on it's side to get a good look at its guts and found a bearing I couldn't see from the front. A drop of oil and a bit of sitting time to soak in and she puuuuurrrrrs.

Threading was pretty easy, in fact the lower looper was easier than my Kenmore. There are just more guides you have to catch. I'm a happy girl tonight.
