Default Singer LK100 carriage jams

Just wondering if anyone can advise regarding the plastic knobs on the
needles of LK100s.

I've been advised this could be one source of carriage jams.

Does anyone have a suggestion of something that could be substituted -
perhaps in metal from another machine ?

Oh, so that's not just me. I'd been fiddling with the tension knobs trying
to get it to stop.

Hi Karen S.

Since I wrote the group having carriage jams, I've managed to get
someone to make me a fake needle bar retainer out of a piece of
aluminum - the kind used for house siding. It helped immensely
getting a new sponge bar in place. There is still one area about one
foot in length where it is very tight trying to pass the carriage but
I think that may have something to do with the clamps causing a WOW if
that is possible.

Also I've purchased some gun oil but have been afraid to use it on the
plastic after I saw what it did to my metal bed machine.
