Heat speeds things up, a very nice trick to be reminded of. Keep oiling and moving the lever, if it's caused by dirt and grime it will take a bit of effort to flush it out. It usually works well by repeating it often.

I see you have to be  clever with some machines, tension units are not all the same.

The gentleman who gave me the machine got back in touch with me today - and look what I have now...

p.s. the spider will have to go :(
REALLY no more room for vintage machines!  :)

LOL, was it like that when you handed it in?

Hopefully everything shifts nicely know. Have you threaded it up, test sewed a few buttonholes?

It was just like that when he gave it to me, but I have washed it now :)

It still isn't working - the knob which should pull out when you want to buttonhole will not pull out, although it turns, so taking it apart again - but I'm determined to get there eventually.

These pictures are for Marniesews as well as everyone else - as she has kindly offered me some parts for the machine if she has spares.
So here are the pages from the book which show what should have been with the machine to begin with.

I have the basic presser foot for straight stitching and zig-zag, but no other feet at all. These are snap-ons.
There are  four bobbins, and one bobbin case, so not bad there.
One lovely little grey handled screw driver, which actually came with another machine but is definitely a Husqvarna with the crest on it!

I have the tool box now, but not the extension table, which might have been white plastic or white metal, I can't tell.

And that's it. So any spare feet, and any extra bobbins would be really super. And an extension table if Marnie has one.

I keep hoping if I can get all the bits, it will magically encourage the whole machine to work LOL

Well, we've found the second machine in my daughter's attic with a metal extension table and the push in tray but you don't need that now and it's a different design anyway. Typically the box of feet weren't with it!!!  :( Now it's just a case of searching through her stuff - and possibly mine (which is an even worse option but one that we've been planning to do for quite some time).

We're away for a few days but after that I'll send you some photos of the machine close to in case there are any mechanical bits that you think may be usable. Then it's time for a bit of a sort through  :| looking for the feet as we go. Fingers crossed.

Well I'm sorry you're going to have to rummage and sort - but maybe it'll be good in the long run? And thank you for finding the extension table  :)
And no rush here, as you know, as it's not actually fully working yet LOL

hope you're time away is super.
Thanks and best wishes

Patience and working at it will get you there. The most stubborn case I  have had is a screw in my 201, when it loosened I dedicated a post to it a few weeks ago lol It's the one in center of the bobbin case, it was stuck for two years and six months at least, one day it was just loose. In the center of the screw there's an oil point for the set of meshing gears below, so it was oiled a lot. I actually have have had a couple of screws like that.
