    Oh, I would love to get this machine. But too far away. Anyone want to foster for me????

    Lisa
    Wish I was close enough!! I'd foster it for you! Of course, you might not ever get to pick it up, but I'd call it yours!! :lol:
    Why are all the pretty machines at least 1,500 miles away?? No fair,no fair.!!!
    Sharon, One day a Two Spools and a Davis NVF will show up.
    Maybe someone from the Treadleon group that doesn't use their machine will sell. Every time I have seen a posting for a Two Spools or Davis, I have thought of you. I too wish these machines would show up close to you since you would make an excellent steward. Just from reading your posts on this QB thread, I have learned lots. One example is your own Singer 201 in treadle. Somehow the machine finds us! I would love to see you make those scrappy donation quilts that you make using a Two Spools. That would be awesome!

    No feed dogs are needed since the needle and the foot moves the fabric. This video show the machine in action:

    I think it was someone on Treadleon that recently explained that the Two Spools works beautifully at treadle speed, but the speed from a motor on this sewing machine was too much for the spool can's mechanics. So, the popularity of owning a machine with motor won. I purchased one Two Spools that at one time had a motor attached to it and one that had only been treadled. I believe the one that had a motor, most likely had the motor added when it became the fashion to own a machine with motor.

    I took mine apart and put it back following the information at TFSR. They have lots of pictures if you are more visual for working with 15s and 66/99s. Definitely a big help when I had to put all those little pieces back together!

    Nothing wrong with the timing, it sounds like a burr on the needle plate or the tension disc are a tad bit dirty.

    I'll look for burrs in the morning. How do I clean the tension disc? Do I need to completely disassemble the tension? Thanks, Billy.

    She dropped the price again. These machines are awesome!!!
    Go for it! And I do NOT know this person. I just want to see this machine go to someone that not only collects vintage sewing machines, but also will use this machine for quilting.

    Yeah, I've been trying to absorb some more of it! Takes a while to load
