    Oh my. Love those blocks. The smiley face and the little people are to die for, and the others are dressed up just enough to make them sing when you put it all together. Good job!

    I love reading your posts, Joe, whether or not they have anything to do with my own machines or issues. I like "watching" you problem solve; you have great mechanical insight and ability and you write so well about what you're doing!

    Hope you got it fixed Joe, finally got the singer feed dogs to work. Little more adjusting on tension and it should sew very nice for an 1980's singer, but at least it is working. May pass it along to someone who needs and inexpensive sewing maching or keep it as it has Cams, a first for me.
    Love your cat, she is a real beauty.

    Those feeddogs do slip, so readjusting fit the bill. Usually the are are tightly screwed down so it is a mystery of nature that it happens. Good job.

    Dan,

    That would explain a lot. I checked my 1913 vintage 66-1 and it's feed dogs were way down too. I'll have to readjust them.
    I guess all the years of use tends to push them down a bit.

    You're welcome. Those decorations are the one thing I can't do with a vintage machine .

    My Elna Air Electronic, purchased in the late seventies, can do the fancy stitches. She uses the decorative cams.

    Well, sorta vintage I guess. I've used Singers from my wife's 319 all the way up to her 86 vintage Bernina then up to a 2001 Singer plastic wannabee.

    I guess I sorta consider vintage as pre ZZ era.
