Whay do we recoment original Parts, this is a crucial area of your sewing machine, Your thread slipt through the hole and the area arround the hole keeps your fabric tight and stops it from getting caught under. Your fabric needs to slip over the needle and your feed dogs need to grip your fabric. We have found some extreamly soft metal plates that very easily get needle burs and chips under normas sewing conditions causing thread snaping ocasonaly, puckering of stitches and general poor tension all this is from resistance on the thread as it passes through the eye.
