Hey Vintage Machine enthusiasts. Got a question.
My $10 featherweight was not getting power. Took her to the sew shop, swapped out my cord/foot controller for one of theirs. Worked fine! So... I bought a double lead, 3 prong replacement cord.
Before I rewire anything.... should I consider getting a new foot pedal? (Like one of the ones that doesn't heat up when you use it!)? Or should I just use the old bakelite push button controller that I have? That old controller will slide onto the FW's box lid holder. But a new controller won't dissapate the heat like the old Singer controllers do. I plan on using this machine on trips, classes, for fun, piecing quilts and sewing doll clothing, etc. It won't be my sewing room 'go to' machine.
