Repairing an Oster Bread MakerI have an Oster 5858 bread maker. The shaft that holds the paddle falls out of the bowl base bottom. I have to keep the bowl base with the shaft locked in the breadmaker, then attach the paddle so that I can fill the bowl with liquids and then the dry ingredients. The shaft does sits slightly lower, but still works with the paddle. The bread maker still does a good job of mixing the dough.

Fixing My New Home Memory Craft Sewing MachineI haven't used my New Home Memory Craft 7000 for a few years but got out today to do some zig zagging of edges. Thought I had threaded properly but after a few stitches, it jammed and I had to cut threads to release fabric. Took plate off under where bobbin is and needle doesn't seem to be taking up bobbin thread. Any ideas please?
