The needle clamp screw for my "C" needle is stripped. It is very difficult to get out! I don't have a local Viking dealer anymore, so I am looking for a place where I can order the screw. I would prefer to replace the screw before I can no longer get the needle out.

Thanks for any help!

are you near a Lowes, or similar kind of hardware store? Take it there, It's pretty easy to match threads, and Lowes at least has a huge selection of that kind of hardware

The hardware person will probably show you this, but to see if the threads are the same, match the screw to the screw (in other words, put the thread end of the screws right next to each other, touching). if the threads are the same they align or fall into each other perfectly.

Thanks for responding. The screw is the tiniest hex-head screw. My husband says Lowe's probably won't have it, but I guess it won't hurt to check.

Maybe another dealer would mail you the screw.. I would search and find a list of possibles and start calling.

I agree that Lowe's isn't the right place. but maybe they can point you to another source. Machinist / tool maker shop might be a resource for finding the right place to purchase... commercial / industrial jobber of machine parts.

Good luck! IF you find one, get several!

I'm guessing that the screw is metric, so you may not find it easily in the US.
