I have an american home, model no. 1804-B, serial no. 0922.  there was
an little wire thingy sticking out of the tension knob contraption
that you're supposed to loop the thread through when threading the
machine.  when it broke, I was told there was no way to replace it.

does anyone here have that part?  are you willing to sell it?  I'd buy
other parts along with it or even a whole machine of the same make and
model.

He stocks an astonishing collection of parts and bits, and is a
regular contributor here.

Also, have you searched eBay?  Maybe you could buy a "parts"
machine for very little.  There is one up for auction right now

A good group to check with is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wefixit/
They know the sources for parts for older machines.  You may need to buy
an entire tension unit, or even a parts machine.  It's also possible
that you can get a spring at the hardware store and modify it a little
with pliers.  Good luck.
