OH, I am absolutely green with envy. In spite of just getting the Graybar, I would sure make those 15 mile to that Two Spool in record time. I would love a machine that I didn't have to change bobbins every few minutes.
The whole room has IKEA cabinets and shelves as the base for the cutting table. Then there are those LED lights under the cabinet and two pendent lights., plus the ceiling is just the beams painted white. The floor is concrete painted aqua, with a "beach mat" type rug (plastic woven) under the cutting table. Right now I have 8 machines belonging to a friend that I am re-wiring, so a few too many machines! I work tomorrow, and it is dark now, so I'll get some pictures on Friday. I have the Singer 31, set up for FMQ ( it's a treadle) the Dais VF treadle, the Singer 201 in a table, the red sewing table for everyone else, and the red topped MUTT I brought to the Turlock TOGA all set up. It's unbelievable to me that I have a room like this. Sometimes at night I run in there to check I' not dreaming! Only last year, the garage was full of junk and I had a corner in the TV room!

I haven't been on this site in a few weeks but I just finished going back through the past twenty or so pages I missed - Charlee I hope you're feeling well and Miriam I'm glad things turned out well for Wilbur!
I was thrilled to see the several White Family Rotary machines over the past few pages because one of those very machines finally found it's way home with me!
I was looking at one of the black embossed White's on CL a while back but it didn't pan out. :( But, my Step Uncle's Mother passed away recently, and sadly my Aunt and he had to sell everything in the estate. They had a sale a few weeks ago and thought of me because I am so mad about sewing and machines. I paid him $10 for this...and while it's nothing super fancy, it's one I don't have and it looks to have been born in 1924...so excited to clean this one up and play! I know absolutely nothing about White's other than it seems to be a lot harder to find info online about them than Singers! :)
Love it! I have two...one like this and another that is embossed. The one like this is a treadle and sews like a dream. The other is motorized and a bit sluggish, but coming along. I know ISMACS has some information on them along with a threading diagram.
Laura, You do know that Cathy owns a Two Spools? She could always bring it down when she visits. See if the machine fits that mutt treadle cabinet. You could have a night of treadling the Two Spools while she rewires those machines for ya...or re-time a machine of yours. She sure does love to tweak the machines.
