My neighbour is hard working and has few hobbies. She loves table tennis but has no partner, so she bought a table tennis machine, which shoots balls at her. This machine, an Oukei TW-2700-E1, she loves, allows her to return balls without help from the family. It was unfortunate when the machine began jamming. I opted to fix the machine, and she was grateful to have it back in service. It turned out the fix was very simple, but rendered the machine unusable.

Excited I am to add yet another imperial sewing machine manual to my web site. This manual is for the Model 4500, the zigzag machine. I’d like to thank “RR” for the donation. Not only is there a 4500 user manual but there is also an additional handout that includes helpful tips, lubrication points and a large parts diagram.

As usual, all sewing machine manuals on my site are free of charge. The manuals are also free to distribute on condition that they are also free to download. If you download the manual please leave a comment so that if there are updates I can forward them to you.

Canadian Tire Snowblower Belt Replacement

Three Five brand v-belt should fit my snowblower, and surprise, Canadian made!

Three Five brand v-belt should fit my snowblower, and surprise, Canadian made!

My Canadian Tire snowblower was getting tired, so late last winter I decided to see if I could spruce her up. The v-belt that connects the 2T engine to the auger was worn, but still connected and therefore workable. Today I tried to find a replacement v-belt. It turns out that my belt is 1/2″ x 35″ and found a machine v-belt replacement for $6.
