Recommendations for a replacement appreciated.
The neck of the pin appears to have a coarser cut spiral, the lower part appears threaded. The head of the pin is round, without a slot.

I'm not sure if you are referring to the hinge pin? I need to get to work, but if so check https://www.shop.sew-classic.com/PIN-Faceplate-door-SINGER-400-900-170032.htm or https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage-antique-machine-enthusiasts-f22/singer-500-rocketeer-rescue-t206634.html I know someone used a specific nail/pin that worked well, I can see picture in my head, but don't have time to try to find.

Thanks, Janey. You're awesome at tracking down resources.
I never thought to look for the pins, assumed they'd be unobtanium. Read through first QB page, Joe mentioned a 4d nail solution he'd heard about.

Okay, I had some time tonight and found the thread about the 4D finishing nails. There is a disclaimer in there indicating that the currently found ones might have a different size head. The thread (and image that I remembered) is https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage-antique-machine-enthusiasts-f22/singer-500-hinge-pins-t249022.html

I'm glad you started the thread about the 401. I was reading in the thread I posted this morning, which mentions the 30W oil, but didn't have any pictures of where it goes.
