I love lurking in this thread and seeing the amazing things that goons are capable of whipping up. I sew by hand and I've long wanted a machine, but never had the money.

And today, in a pile of broken furniture on the sidewalk, I found a Singer 500A with its original sewing table. All the moving parts seem to be in order except for one piece. The small metal arm on the front of the machine that one pulls up while threading seems to be stuck. I haven't used a sewing machine in years, and I have NEVER used a vintage machine like this one, and I have no idea what this part of a machine would be called or how easy it is to replace. What is the name of this part, oh stitchy ones?
It's a take-up lever.

You found a Singer Slant-o-matic. My wife says she hates you. :)

I've found this guy on craigslist, and the price is right ($50) but I've never heard of this brand before. Its an Emdeko, and all I can find on the internet is reference to a later 1070's model being a "workhorse", so that bodes well? Does anyone out there have any experience/knowledge with this particular type of machine?
Brother made those Emdeko machines, so they can use Brother feet - more importantly, you can use the class 15 bobbins that Brother makes.
