    When I looked up her serial number I found that her decals are La Vencendora decals....grape vine and leaf motif. I did a google translate and La Vencendora means The Winner in Spanish. So, maybe I should name her Dora! How cute is that??

    Ok, I'm gonna admit my ignorance! This is the same machine I picked up at the consignment store for $38. There was no foot pedal so I thought it was just missing. There is the "knee control" in the case but I didn't know what it was for.

    Also, my case is really really broken on the bottom. How is the best way to repair it? The top is in good shape.

    The wires are iffy so I haven't tried to sew with it but everything turns and moves well. Also, what does the bullet bobbin look like? I can't tell if there is one in there are not.

    As I said, my ignorance is really showing on this machine!! :)

    PS: Her SN is G9842042, born Feb 19, 1923, 15,000 allotment.

    If you find a source for either of these, would you post the site? I need them, too! Thanks!

    Here is what the key looks like to my dome top singer 128 case. I am assuming they are all alike?

    Just recently there was an eBay seller who had bottom cases for sale in a choice of three timber colours, but I've just done a quick search and can't find them...maybe it was too quick!! LOL Maybe keep an eye on eBay unless you can find a donor machine and swap cases.

    Keys are available too, but as usual, some are quite costly.

    Picked up a Singer 27 with Sphinx decals today for $25. Cabinet needs some TLC one knob on drawer is gone. Head is frozen but doesn't seem to have much rust and missing front plate, as usual. On the good side, shuttle and 3 bobbins, almost new belt. G series. It's still in the van, so no pics yet.

    Here is a shuttle and her little bobbin. Not sure if that is the bullet bobbin you were referring to. Everyone starts learning somewhere. There are no stupid questions. Heaven knows I don't know a drop in the bucket about these machines.

    Happy 4th of July to everyone!

    I contacted a vendor about a metal darning foot for my Singer 301A. It took some doing but they were able to locate one and quoted a price of $30 plus shipping. That seems like a lot to me. Is it? :shock:
