Go buy it!! What's $50?
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Go buy it!! What's $50?
Offer less than $50.00. You can always come up in price if you have to. If you get it for less than $50.00 you can tell yourself about the great deal you got and go make room for it at home. You know you want it.
And as for "needing" another machine, I didn't "need" the one that came home with me on Monday. I still don't understand why I bought it.
So you lowball the offer and if they accept it you know it was meant to be yours :)
I know, I'm no help at all..lol
Ok Nancy - I am going to give this my best shot. You don't need another SM... but 2 months from now when you're kicking yourself because you frequently dream about the cute little Graybar don't blame me :)Originally Posted by BoJangles
Here's my litmus test - would you be willing to get rid of a SM that you already have (and you have some very sweet SM's) and replace it with the Graybar?? If the answer is No, then let someone else have an opportunity to buy it :)
Oh to resist temptations of a vintage SM, it's like the call of the Sirens.
I don't need' another ' one." Why doesn't someone here go and get it? Nancy[/quote]
Nancy since when does need have to do with anything. I will not go get it because I do not want to take the pleasure of owning this machine away from you. lol Besides what I spent Tuesday leaves no money in my pocket book. :cry: Kathie
How do you like your 306K and can it be treadled? Also what class of attachments does it take or does it have it's own? I'm looking at one and trying to decide whether to get it or not. I think it takes special needles and it uses cams. I have an hour before I leave to look at it and would appreciate your input....
Hi Billy, and all! I have just added two new members to my sewing "family" -- Ellie and Adah... I'll attach pics here of Adah -- a Singer model 27 built in 1909, tredle machine. Billy - I need needles and belts for both machines. Can you give me an idea of where to look? The industrial machine has a leather belt. Also, is there a place to go and get a repair manual for either machine, and/or a diagram explaining all the parts, etc. I copied the info about how you clean up your machines, but am unsure of what the different "Plates" are -- I know the plate where the feed dogs is probably the needle plate... Sorry to be so uneducated!!
Also -- when you restore these machines, do the beautiful decals restore well, or do you need to replace them?? Mine are beautiful, but some parts have worn away. Is there a place to purchase new decals??
THIS is Ellie - she is a real workhorse...and will be my new mid-arm....
Ooops. upside down.... Just Simanco 12560
This is Adah -- she is beautiful! Needs cleaning up, but so excited to have her!
This is Ellie's workhorse engine... She's rarin' to go!!
is that black one an industrial machine?
Yes, she is. Built in Scotland in 1938.
