Customer Question
I have a Viking...

I have a Viking 2000 sewing machine with a cracked cam stack (?). Is there any way to find a replacement? Could I have one made by a machinist I know? Would it be better to have it made out of metal?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Viking is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I am sure my mother got it brand new in the 1960’s, but i’ll Go look.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I’m not sure. I could but we have a Viking repairman near, but he refuses to replace it with the available generic replacement cam stack because of it,s bad outcomes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Everything else works fine. Okay

You can buy the sewing machine for $150 here used: https://www.etsy.com/listing/550987598/viking-2000-sewing-machine

The cost of that machine would be cheaper than trying to repair your current one

No. My mother’s machine has sentimental value. My question is “ Would a metal replacement cam work?”
Small Appliance Technician: Josh, Technician replied 7 months ago

If you would like to keep the machine then you can buy the used machine for $150 and use it for parts.
