I have a wheeler and Wilson treadle that I believe was produced around 1895. I am having issues with the tension. My upper thread lies loose which means my upper tension is too tight or my lower tension is too loose. I have my upper tension as loose as it will go and it is still a problem. I looked to find the spring and screw in the hole above the latch and there isn’t anything there. I can see straight through the hole to the bobbin thread. Am I missing pieces or looking at the wrong hole? If I am missing the screw and spring, and if so where on earth can I get those two tiny parts?
