    Oh the 99 hand crank would be a hoot camping. Can you imagine how many people would stop and watch you in action, might even have a few volunteers to give you a rest. :thumbup:[/quote]

    Hahaha!! That's what I was thinking, too. Plus my kids and grandkids would really be making fun of me sewing while camping....they already think I spend too much time sewing. Can you imagine??? LOL LOL

    Oh, that is good news then. I will try to get pictures of the feet that I have if you want. Just let me know.
    That would be great!
    Mizjohnny I have a few of the feet for your sewing machine I will send pic for you to look at and if you want them they are yours.

    I did win a machine from one of the Goodwill stores on the shopgoodwill.com site. Unfortunately they did not do such a great job packing it. There was some damage to the base, because although they wrapped the machine very well in bubble wrap, they put it into a gigantic box with just loose foam and peanuts thrown in, and it rattled around so much it broke the corner of the base. I would send them an e-mail and ask them to be sure it gets carefully wrapped first and then securely packed into a box so that it doesn't shift around. I have gotten other things from that site that were fine.

    Miz Johnny, I am going to start working on my Elna Supermatic. When I first got it I tried it, the motor did work but the needle barely moved. I'm suspecting that it's just gummed up from sitting for so long. I have to get a new folding knee controller. What should I do first to get it going? Thanks!!

    jtapp9, That's a very nice red eye. The decals are in such good shape and the machine looks good, too.

    I inherited a Singer 15-91 the other day and I am a little baffled. Attached to the pressure relieving thumb screw is a "Revco" release button. Has anyone else seen one of these and do they know the purpose?

    She is supposed to get the S/N for me when she gets home from work.

    Was it common for these to be electrified? And is it hard to turn them back into a treadle? Because it has been modified is it even worth it?
    OOH beautiful Red Eye decals. You can remove the motor with just a couple of screws and then you will be able to drop it into a Singer treadle cabinet and treadle it.

    thanks much for the information. I treasure it and it works like a charm. Don't know where my mother got it as she was born in 1909.
