Welcome to the Quilting Board!
It's usually called the "Sphinx" decals I think. That is the machine I have. Mine is from 1905. It's a model 27 vibrating shuttle machine. The one you are looking at was being made in 1908. http://www.singerco.com/pdf/SINGER_D_nos.pdfOriginally Posted by Quilt Mom
I paid $15 for mine... honestly I think $399 is a lot, but it depends on how bad you want it :mrgreen:
ETA: The belt that drives the machine is less than $10 and readily available all over the net (and some local places). One-size-fits-all treadles.
Okay, I know you knowledgable people have shared suggestions before but this thread has gotten very long. Would it be possible to start a new topic with suggested resources? I am giving up on my local singer shop. I may try one more time. I took my parts in and showed what I wanted to order. They suggested I bring the machine in and they will fix it for me. I said, no I just wanted the parts as I could do it myself. Well then the sales pitch started to buy some fancy new machine.
There's nothing like the customer service here.
I have signed up for all the Singer groups on yahoo, but am a novice on that site and can't seem to figure out how to get logged back in. Also waiting for access to look at the pages on Needle Bar and Treadle on.
Hey Quilt Addict. I bet Billy can help you track down parts. There are quite a few on Ebay, too. Anything specific I could help you search for? I am good at Googling and Ebaying :)Originally Posted by quilt addict
Hoping to contact this post tomorrow and take a ride. Anyone looking for anything???Originally Posted by Deara
And, yes Glenn, I'll ask if he has couple of sets of attachments for a back clamp, as I'm looking for a set myself.
Oh indeed it can!!!!! I converted my "Universal" 15 into a treadle and I love it!Originally Posted by Crossstitcher

Billy, I saw the same model on an Ebay auction about a month ago that sold for $275 and one on Craigslist that was listed for $300. Neither one of them looked as nice as this and I won mine for $56.22! Once I get it in my hands I will be able to share more about it. These were made by Husqvarna and sold as Viking Automatic. There were three editions, the 21, the 21A and the 21E. From the little bit of information I have found on them you can change the stitch style by using a combination of the cams that come with the machine and by adjusting the width and length of the stitch. There is a round two-layered card type of tool which comes with the manual and allows you to select a stitch illustrated on the bottom card by rotating the top card until the arrow points to your selected pattern. There is a window in the top card which tells you which cam to use as well as the length and width settings. I'm not sure if all models have the same options or not and I won't really know until I get mine to see if mine actuallycomes with the cams. If I get all of these items I will post pics so everyone can see what I am trying to explain. I am very excited but wish I could find someone who is familiar with these.Originally Posted by Lostn51

$56.00 I am excited with you!!!! You made out like a bandit judging from the information you gave. And I am real curious about how the cards and cams work with the machine!!Originally Posted by JoAnnGC
