That was amazing! Been wanting to do this for a while now. Very clear, easy to learn video. Thank you!

This has given me a better understanding on the newer models of machines, I feel a little more confident in taking them apart to do some much needed cleaning! Thank you! :)

Thank you for your video. I had forgotten many things! My friend's machine needed some cleaning.

Thank you for video. I have taken my Singer 5040 apart to replace clutch plate cover but am unable to get clip off to replace. Is there a special tool needed?
