    Got the Domestic treadle home tonite, going to give the head the spa treatment. Got a nice surprise, under the one drawer liner was the original illustraded instruction book, cover was torn, missing a section and detached, but all the pages are there. Serial # is 190124, this # was under the front bobbin cover, bobbin cover has a different # on the top side. I think this machine takes the longer needles, got some attachments, binder, set of hemmers(4), quilter seam guide, ruffle, 4 bobbins, and a tucker. Has the drop down leaf on the left side, small swing out drawer in front and 2 drawers on the right side. I think I did OK for $35.

    forgot: also got original oil can

I have the book with it but it in bad shape. Can anyone tell me about it. The belt is even good and I have a full set of attachments.
    Very nice find, Gary!! Good for you!

    I just have to share. I want to tell ya'll about this great book I just bought tonight at Books A Million. It's called The Sewing Machine Attachment Handbook by Charlene Phillips. It tells you how to use all the attachments that come with vintage machines. I haven't read it all the way through yet but a lot of the pictures they use have featherweights in them.

    I have to admit that I never did learn how to use all those feet that came with my 1973 Viking. I only used 2-3 different feet. For the FW, I've never used any other foot than the regular foot. Thanks to this book, I may actually learn to use the other feet. I'm really excited.

    I have the same book and just love it. With this book I am gonna learn how to use all the attachments I have for my different machines.
    The author also has a Facebook page and an Ebay store.

    Blessings,

    Billy, I love the new list for older machines you put up. I have company now but will post mine in the next week or so. My collection is very small, but it is a start.

    Thanks so much for the VSMS thread and the new thread for cataloging our machines.

    Marie M.

    QuilterGary,
    Very pretty machine. The cabinet looks to be in great condition.

    Tommie, got the 503A home today. It came with all the attachments, manual, plus some other goodies and the original 9 cams. Only thing missing is the piece of cabinet that fills the hole when machine is down in the cabinet. I probably won't put it down anyway. Thanks again for this find. It was clean too. Won't need spa treatment at all just a little dusting off.

    I just now found this neck of the woods. This is awsome since I am in the process of restoring a machine now. YEAH!!!
    The machine I am restoring is a Singer 99-13. I don't have photo's of that since my camera bit the dust last week.
    I do however have a couple of photo's of a machine I picked up a couple of weeks age at a garage sale for $20.00.
    This is a De Luxe classic sewing machine. From what I have read so far about this machine is that it was made in Japan as a knockoff of the singer machine. This machine is in awsome shape. I have been sewing on it since it came in the door. Last week I was lucky enough to find the cabinet at my local Salvation Army store for $25.00. More then I really wanted to spend...but...it is in excellent shape and I am enjoying sewing on the machine so much I wanted to have it set up for easy access. Now I am not having to move machines from one place to another.
    I did have to make a few minor adjustments to the cabinet. The machine will not be able to fold down because there doesn't seem to be anyplace for mounting screws on the bottom of the machine. But that is no problem...I enjoy looking at it. I didn't make the machine a permanent fixture to the cabinet so...if I want to make it portable I just pick up the machine and move it back to it's carrying case.
    Here are a couple of pics that I have. The close up of the machine is not very clear...I think that is when my camera decided to take the dive.
