Kate makes a beautiful stitch and is extremely easy to treadle. But, Lordy is she noisy!! When compared to a National VS and early White VS, the shuttle is a rattle trap. As a result, I am not sewing with it anymore.

I think that top one looks like an old Wilcox and Gibbs, but I never worked on them when I was in the shop-they were just too far and few for me.
Thanks, I thought the top one was a W & G but have never seen one with a motor.

I'm having issues with my ruler always moving on me while I'm cutting long strips of fabric. I have purchased the suction cup handle to place on my ruler & also put the sandpaper dots on the underside of my ruler. What am I doing wrong or how can I correct this issue?
Thank you in advance for all suggestions.
Here are links to the Booms I have finished as well as the blocks for individual swaps I have made and received.

Such a yummy sandwich and every time we go "home" I must visit a Maid-Rite restaurant.
If anyone has the recipe for these sandwiches I would love to try
