    Have you ever had an OLD sewing machine case that you cannot find the barrel key for? Like a German machine?

    I have more than once now...

    I got a great Pfaff TS convertable treadle/portable in the most beautiful case... with no key.... locked.

    and then again when I got to the Kinetic Carnivale this last weekend and had a person close the lid on my Anker/Hengstenberg with the key sitting on the bed... (German cases frequently auto-lock when closed)

    So, I made this "key". The trick is to get it vertically past the mid divider and under the pin that should go in a real key. When that is done you can turn the key clockwise and it will lever against the mid divider and push on the striker release. click...

    This has worked on the two above machines and on my Frister & Rossman that I got in trade from Cathy(Mizkaki) but with no key..

    I think Houdini used a key like that for his escapes.

    I don't believe super members can have folks banned at will. I don't believe super members can do anything that a regular member with a single post can do.

    ps mike please don't have me ban for asking a question I assume vintage meant just that...Q/A about vintage machine,have a great day... mate
    I think what Mike was trying to tell you is that this particular thread(conversation spot) was started for people to post resources, not for general convos or asking questions. If you start a new thread by clicking the big blue button that says"start new thread"( or something like that) and asking your questions, you're sure to get whatever info someone has.

    You know why you were banned before and it wasn't for asking a question, as I told you, so please stop crying and lying to everyone. You said one thing in public and were threatening and extremely insulting in private.
    Now I'm going to have to quote you so everyone has all the facts:

    "manicmike take a breath and shut up keep your rude comments to yourself."

    "I will not put up with you trying to be bossy with me you are a nobody..cause oldman I will tell you to go f*** yourself"

    I expect you to be banned again because you broke the rules again in starting another account after you were banned for breaking the rules on antisocial behaviour.
    You never accepted that you did the wrong thing or expressed any remorse.
    Lastly, you sent me another nasty PM where you signed it with your first alter ego.

    I expect also that your flooding this useful thread with your poison should be removed: You are also preventing others from finding vintage resources. Do you not consider the consequences of what you do on other people?
    I was never, ever rude. I asked you to please not ask questions on a specific machine a sticky thread. It's obvious even with a cursory read of the posts how this thing works, and I was forced to explain the obvious to you. You responded with a rant about how rude I am and what you're going to do if I don't shut up. Honestly, as they say in my country of origin "catch yourself on" (reflect on your behaviour).

    Wow, looks like I missed something here.
    As far as Christopher's question about super members goes. You get to be one by talking a lot. It comes with the benefits of talking a lot and not much more. We're not granted super powers with the title.

    I talk a lot but am nowhere near being an expert on any of these machines. I just enjoy being here where I can share and learn. Forums like this are only as good as the people on them. Fortunately there are a lot of good people here.

    Thanks for the link Mike. I'm hoping that thread will grow into something useful for us all.
