Yay: figured out how to fix the feed dog height on the vintage Kenmore 1227 that came in the table I picked up via LetGo a couple weeks back. (I was only after the table, but the machine turned out to be a nice bonus; pristine, solid-metal, all-mechanical machine probably worth fixing/keeping. Looks like it was hardly ever used.)

Boo: Now I have to wait for a replacement drive belt to arrive. (Fingers crossed that does the trick.)


Belt replacement was an improvement, but the machine is still running super-slow. Debating trying to replace the pedal vs biting the bullet and paying someone to look at it.
