    Any owners of Damascus sewing machines, here? I would love to have opinions from anyone familiar with this brand plus I was wondering how easy it is to get parts, etc. I found this listing on my local CL:

    http://worcester.craigslist.org/atq/2465425974.html

    It's just in the next town from me so it wouldn't be much of a trip.

    I have a Damascus on my blog. It is not very hard to get parts. There are several places you can contact.

    I have one that I have not gotten too as far as cleaning so I really do not know about how they sew or they behave yet.

    I know that *somewhere* I saw directions on how to take the table off the irons, and how to dismantle the irons, but now (of course), I can't find that site/page. I thought it was on Treadle On, but if it is, I'm not seeing it.

    So, does anybody have any words of wisdom, or directions, or helpful links before I wing it?

    Turn that cabinet up on it's top and take out the screws that hold the drawers on and the four screws that hold the legs on.
    BUT first take the machine out of the cabinet with two screws at the back bottom of the machine. Then pull those legs right off there. The irons will come apart by taking out the screws but that is not necessary. Have at it and let us know how it turns out.

    :lol:
    I just did this to a treadle cabinet that I bought this weekend. I took pictures of the process if you want me to share them. It was really easy....so easy in fact, that I'm going to take the top off of my other treadle cabinet so that I can work on the wood and irons separately. The other advantage is that now I can move them to an upstairs spare room (and get them out of my LR :roll: ). I had tried to do it before but it was way too heavy and awkward to move it up the stairs when it was all in one piece.

    It's funny that you mention that! When I googled for information, about it, it brought up a link to this forum and a thread where you were selling a Damascus for $40.00 (I think) but I forget whether it was a recent post.

    Here is the link (it's the 5th listing) :

    That is too funny, see you have to watch what you put on the internet because it will be visible for life! But it never sold the buyer backed out and I decided to keep it.
