I'm hoping to start a sewing class next week and have to have my own machine for it. I bought a used (old) Singer 5805 which seems to work mechanically fine, but I have noticed the spool pin and spool cap have snapped off it. Can I still use the machine? It looks like I could replace the spool pin fairly easily with some dowelling, but I don't know how I would replace the cap.
Any thoughts much appreciated!
