Elderly sewing machines are pretty low tech so repairs are usually possible. Missing parts are rarely worth the effort of fabrication, which is very time consuming, as the machines are so cheap. It is surprising what you can get on ebay in the way of parts too.
As the ability to function is more important to me than historical accuracy, so I am usually looking for a way of putting the bits back together rather than an ""as new" restoration. Amazing what can be done with a few odds and ends of metal.
Or something like that anyway........
