Although I never tried to use a hammer to unscrew the needle plate on my sewing machine, I tried quite a few different things such as dimes, paper clips, etc.
The screwdriver that came with the sewing machine was too long, thus, making it very difficult to undo the screw. I had to angle the screwdriver and this angling turned this task into a struggle.
Today, I found these treasures at the B & B Quilting.
These perfect sized screwdrivers come in two different sized bits.
Both bits work with my sewing machine.
I no longer have to angle in the screwdriver or use other objects.
Compare the difference in sizes between the new screwdriver on the top and the screwdriver that came with the machine.
This little tool has made it so much easier for me to remove the needle plate to clean my machine.
My dad always stressed the importance of having the right tool.
He would be happy to know that I really did listen to him…sometimes.
