    I bought my Morse 200 deluxe when I got married in 1956..I still have it, and I still love it…but I am having a problem with the tension…I wanted to know if you could tell me where I could get a schemetic for the tension so I can put it back together, so I don’t have take it out of my cabinet…my late husband put it in a cabinet for me and now it’s not portable any more…any suggestions??? It seems that it would be pretty easy without taking it to the repair shop….Thank you for your wonderful website.. Mary Otavka

      Hmmmmm, I never had to take the tension apart on mine, but most machines have a little set screw in the body of the machine just behind where the tension assembly is. If you’re looking at the tension dial, it would be slightly behind the assembly in about the 4 or 5 o’clock position. I hope that helps, it’s hard to describe! Once you loosen that little screw, you should be able to pull the whole tension assembly out as one piece. That makes it so much easier!
