    I believe last spring it was listed (looking at the address) for a lot higher by itself, now they are trying to move it with a garage sale. If it was this price back then, it would be sitting in my house right now!
    Boy, there are some lovely sewing machine floating around the Rochester area, so often you show us one that is really neat. I wonder how come Syracuse and Binghamton don't have as many great machines...for good prices?

    That one is so special that it's worth a drive...
    I wrote the lady - she said she had it on and off CL (I was right!) She refinished the cabinet herself. She said if it doesn't sell she is going to see if she can donate it to a museum - if one will take it. I'd hate to see it end up here:

He broke a needle (at THREE bucks a needle, he was NOT Mr. Popular at that moment) he stepped away and I went back at it...he came back to help and together, we figured out that the race was extended out as far as it would go, causing the top thread to catch and hang up between the race and the shuttle causing it to miss the loop. Backed the race up just a hair and we all of the sudden had a stitchin' machine! Not one skipped stitch, tension perfect! :)


    I'm a pretty happy camper right now! :)
    Charlee, congratulations! Remind me - is your Hazel a New Vertical Feed or the original Vertical Feed? I believe it is the original older style. I have been putting on bindings with my "Betty," a old style Davis Vertical Feed like I believe yours is - pre 1900 -, but lately I have to go around my quilts twice to get a nice stitch. The first time around she does ok, then a few bunched up stitches - very loose, then ok again. When you are putting binding on a king/queen sized quilt, this is a lot of work. When I take the quilt out and just stitch with her, she is perfect! I'm beginning to think it is because of the weight of the quilt pulling? I really think I am keeping the quilt up without drag, but I wonder? I can't wait for you to put on a binding to see what your Hazel does!

    Charlee, I am with you! We have 9 treadles in the house and three more in the garage waiting to be refinished! I can't get any more treadles - just portable machines! At that, I have nearly 40 machines now!

    Is this truly a complaint, or are you bragging about all your wonderful vintage machines?!!!!! :lol: :lol:

    Question ---

    I have a kenmore 158.14000 - took the head out of the cabinet to clean the machine. Thanks to the gremlins that attack at the worst time, I cannot find the set screws to hold the machine head in the cabinet. Any ideas on where to look for replacements?

    Marie, that is a really neat looking cabinet. I love the way White had "White" on their cabinets. That cabinet is really unusual looking, simple but elegant too! Nice set up!

    Trust me, it's a complaint!

    Having ADHD doesn't help either.... :)
