    Jud,
    I found this guy in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

    https://brubakerssewing.com/

    Looks like you want to talk to Glen Smith. He has over 45 years experience sales/service of domestic sewing machines. It appears the German Pfaff is a favorite of his.

    I would suspect he would be quite familiar with the particular bolt you need.

    Best of Luck!

    Metric is really easy but misunderstood by many
    Lots of people refer to them as fine or course which in a way is correct but really metric is completely variable
    to get a correct metric bolt you need diameter and pitch, same as any other bolt
    The only thing with metric is it's not threads per inch ,it's the measurement between each actual thread quoted as something like 1mm or 1.25 or ...

    National Tyres Northampton have finger plates for 4wd's don't know if they have a four stud one for the 4 x 4" bolt pattern---usually the plates have masses of holes and you move the studs around to suit the bolt pattern--just depends what they have
    Some even have adjustable fingers to suit any stud pattern

    Good ideas. Thanks. I noticed the same thing about the threads. It's apparent even without the close-up photo. There are 4 of these screws holding the base to the machine and all of them looked the same when I took them out. Pfaff is still in business but I've yet to find a parts catalogue online. Lots of accessories and add-ons but no parts.

    It looks like In the pic the first 5-6 threads have been damaged/flattened and are not peaked like the remaining threads. Being that Pfaff is of German origins I would expect it to be metric thread. Keep in mind that there is a course, standard and fine thread to many metric sizes. Your local box store or Ace Hardware is not likely to stock thread counts that donít sell. If Pfaff is still in b...

    My sister has built a very nice sewing machine cabinet (image 1) for her Pfaff 7570 sewing machine. The machine must be bolted to a hinged platform. The base of the machine has two threaded holes for this purpose. I extracted a bolt (screw? Image 2) from the base plate and it fits the threaded hole. The problem is that I can't find a bolt that matches the one from the machine. The bolt from t...

    Looks like that plate has been welded in there to me--My guess is it-Might have had a new slam panel at some time and had the original stamped section transfered to the new panel

    I just checked one of my grease nipples from the stub axle and the length of the threaded portion is 0.19" and has 5 full threads at one point but the end tapers and the threads go up to a shoulder so some incomplete threads but 5 / 0.19" is 26.3. As I had checked it before the pitch is a spot on match for 28 TPI against the thread gauge. I suspect some incorrect measurements going on causing erro...

    Get the oil as warm (hot) as possible before draining, remove oil cap, towards the end of the initial drain pour in some warm fresh oil to act as a small flushing drain (oil could be warmed by standing in the sun or warm water), then leave to drain for as long as possible.

    The more existing oil and muck you can get out the more fresh clean oil you can get in and the less dilution of fresh...

    Decades back it was a garage man that suggested I try swapping the wheels as it was often tyre wear that caused the problem. I think most modern tyres wear more evenly today.
