  1. Of corse, the first thing I did was remove the needle set screw! lol
  2. My Brand New Lucey decided to eat the sewing needle! The machine jammed in the edge of a quilt and the eye of the needle broke off. When I tried to pry the needle out with pliers, it broke off even further; leaving about 1/4 inch of needle showing below the needle bar. I tried to remove with pliers and no luck. I used PV Penetrating Oil twice at night and let set overnight. Again, I tried to remove with pliers and no luck. I tried heating the needle to make it contract and still no luck. I went to the Hardware store and bought some Needle-Nosed Vise Grip Pliers, removed the oil residue with alcohol swabs, turned the pliers counter-clockwise slightly, and the needle stub finally came out! I have had trouble removing needles before and I think I will put a drop of oil on the new needles before inserting them. Anyways, I hope no one has to go through what I just went through for the last 4 days! Yes, I did remove the needle set screw before trying the remedies.
