    (really, they "worked" before, but now it spins effortlessly and always ends with the pitman arm on the low end...)

    Oooh Steve, you really know how to make a girl's Easter holidays lots of fun! That's a fantastically detailed description of what I know I will definitely have to do. Thanks for sharing.

    ....and thanks to everyone else too! I am extremely excited. I just named her Edith
    (On the list of top girls' names in 1895, Edith is number 27!)

    Always glad to give a Lady a reason to smile!!

    I love that fact that you researched a "period" name appropriate for the source. I do the same for most of my antiquities (including my 13th century German Knights spur named "Sir Heinrich's Bit")

    What a great idea. I decided to check out the most popular female names for 1889. Number 7 was Florence. Perfect name for my 1889 Singer VS2 that I posted today on the Vintage Photo thread. I think that the original decal was Cornflower so the name is appropriate as it means Blooming.
