Re: [vintagejapansewingmachines] Singer 319 part question
From memory this is the fork that operates the zigzag when the "bite" dial is moved to operate the width (needs a drop of oil too). Sometimes the levers for the "bite" dial are frozen, needs a good helping of oil, triflow, or if available Inox (Australian product) and gentle pushing and pulling.
Hope this helps.

I just purchased a Singer 319.
I flipped through the 306 manual that came with the machine but didn't see any part listing for what looks like a tiny open end wrench to the right of the needle bar. Can anyone familiar with this machine tell me what that is?

- It looked like a locking mechanism to me. Thanks for clarifying.
I purchased this machine even though the motor ran but the needle and feed dogs weren't moving because I really wanted a 319. The machine hasn't been used in years. I will check and oil the "bite" dial. Thank you for your reply!!!
