    Nancy thanks for that website. I did not buy this machine, I was just looking for information on them to see if it was worth it or not. I also seen an early portable Singer with the knee rod for around $45. I am concentrating my efforts on fixing up the 1891 Singer fiddle base, but more machines want to follow me home. LOL

    Pat you better be careful. You will end up like us with many machines and looking for places to put them. I am still looking for old tools but have not found any I can afford. Glenn

    Quick Necchi question: How do we date the machines? I have 2; both say made in Italy. Are those real Italian or Japanese Italian? A hinge on one does say Japan on it. I have serial #s for both and am curious as to their age.

    I belong to several different SM lists, but have been hanging out here because I'm looking for a more "informal" atmosphere. (I must admit that I also "feed" off the excitement of those new to collecting!) This is a hobby for me, one I've shared with family and friends and one that has been a wonderful diversion through some really rough times, but is certainly not the most important thing in my life.
    So--entertain me some more! I love hearing about all of your "new" machines!
    What's CRS? Is this something we all probably have - as in sewing machine addiction, or time changed and I have no brain cells this week "itis"??

    Still working on it :lol:

    I have a 2008 Jetta that I have to put a new bumper cover on after I paint it tomorrow. Thursday I have one machine to service and I am painting a couple more machines. This stupid weather we are having has me really messed up so I am playing catchup during the nice days! Maybe by this weekend if I can get a chance I will write the tutorial out for it and post it.
