    Congratulations on your Rocketeer! Is that the 500? I have the 501a. Boy, you sure got a lot of nice loot with the machine too!

    Billy, the Eldridge irons look fabulous. The gilded lettering is especially fetching.

    Good morning everyone. Here's some warm banana bread for breakfast. Enjoy and have a good day.

    So, how many of you folks have completed Billy's cleaning tutorial and successfully got them back together with no missing parts and no extra parts? I'm close to finishing, but my number and sizes of screws left over don't seem to be right. . . I guess that could mean the wrong ones were put in elswhere! I hope not, but we'll see. I'd love to see your comparison photos of before and after and I'll post mine in the next couple of days when completed.

    OMG! Eeks! I just tell my husband to just throw them away. I don't have the patience to do darning.
    I have been known to use a lightbulb !Don't know how I got the bright idea LOL
    Awww, heck guys. Darning socks is sooo easy!
    I ball them up and toss them in the circular file and say "oh, darn". Problem solved LOL
