    Irishrose, just go to the bottom on this page and type in the page number in the little box where it says "jump to page."

    Nancy you can clean the machines with kerosene. The kerosene will not harm the finish or decals, but will clean up the old oil. I have never gotten a machine that has that smell coming from the machine itself? I bet it is coming from the bottom cover of those machines - something that can absord odor? I'd toss any thread still in the bobbins, the felt thingy on the spool pin (if there is one) that the thread sits on, anything that could absorb odors. Let us know if you solve the problem.

    I live an hour away, but just don't need another machine.
    If only I were visiting in-laws - like 30 minuites from them. Drool!
    Oh My, I'd get that machine in a minute! Geeze, that Free could be dropped into a treadle really easily, or made a hand crank with that hand wheel! I love my Free treadle, would love to have that one too -- put I'd make it a treadle!

    Very cute machine, it looks like a version of my New Home T No 3 pictured on page 665. Very nice cabinet too.

I was instructed that this could easily turn into something worse if I didnt take my time resting but that is driving me nuts!

    Better nuts than dead, Billy. Just bite the bullet and rest, you'll be glad you did. I had this crud last year for almost 6 mos and it truly about did me in.

    Do any of you know if you can still get needles for the Childs Vintage Sew Handy Electric machine? I am wanting to purchase one for my daughter but not sure if I can get needles for it.

    Thank you, Bojangles. I knew I had seen the prior access somewhere, but I was looking at the the numbers at the top of the page.

    Does anyone else think Little Miss No Name Leader on page 872 and Miss Kenwood on page 916 look a lot alike?
