Machine troubles

This is the fly wheel of my sewing machine which thread wrapped around because I was not paying attention to that part of the machine = machine troubles.  I spent a considerable amount of time looking for the proper screw driver to take the machine apart and then couldn’t get to the thread that way.  I have one piece not back on, because I need help with that.   Then I took out as much thread as I could with a tiny seam ripper and a targeted flashlight.  Unfortunately with these computer machines, one can’t just back off the fly wheel like we could in the manual types.  I’m not sure how far in the thread can travel and how much trouble it can cause.  So maybe I’ll just have to live without it for a couple weeks and have it serviced.   First I’ll see tomorrow if a neighbor can help with it.
