I just had my singer 201 rewired and now I want to put it in the cabinet and feed the wire through the hole in the metal bracket, but I can't figure out which screws to remove to open the foot pedal and remove the wire so I can do this. The repair guy soldered the terminals in the hub on the machine so I can't take those off... Can any vintage gurus help?

On the bottom of the pedal are 4 screws. That's all that's visible. Those separate the pedal in two pieces so you can remove the wires to re-home your pedal.

Why in the name of the seven hells did he do that?

Seriously, I always remove the foot pedal connectors from that socket entirely and rewire them into a single unit with the power cord.
In case of the unforeseen, it can save additional damage to the machine...
Singer didn't solder the contacts together for a reason.

I hope you didn't pay for that. I'd be screaming up one side and down the other at this one. Sorry, no real help here.

A sewing machine is just a welder for textiles.

The more I think about this, the more annoying it gets.
Why would he solder the wires to the terminals?
It makes repairing the machine even MORE difficult!
