    I just found this sewing gauge I am going to order. Your machine will have to have the mounting screw holes on the bed. This is the best one I have EVER seen. Watch the video.

    My 319 has a one piece plate with a pin near the feed. It slides on with a spring clip on the other end then it has to raise and go in that hole - keeps it from shifting.

I've never used a shuttle and long bobbin before, but she sews a nice stitch and it wasn't too hard to do. It will be a while before I get her in the treadle to really try her out.

I finally sold the machine as it was in a treadle to someone who wanted it for a decoration. I needed it gone, and she wanted it for show.
    Thanks Miz Johnny. No one else has even had a reply. I've been getting ready for Christmas, so she's just sitting. I don't want to do more damage by prying, so it may get restored "in place".

    Thanks Miriam. I'll see if I can check something like that out when I try to get her loose next time.

The problem is the cabinet is in great shape, but the hinges/parts that hold the machine in the cabinet are missing. So I can't use the cabinet until I find the parts to hold the machine - so it doesn't fall through! Anyone know where, - besides watching E-bay - I can find parts for the Pfaff cabinet. I need the hinges, screws, anchoring system so the machine can be set into the cabinet and actually closed up when not in use!

    Nancy, your cabinet is the #44, the Hollywood. (Mine is the Californian.) I have the rest of this booklet; if you want a pdf, PM me your email and I'll get it to you. Sorry, I'm no help with the hinges and stuff.

    eta: Wow, the print is small! The caption says:

    No. 44 HOLLYWOOD MODEL Easy! Fast! A flick of your finger turns an important piece of furniture into a beautifully complete sewing cabinet.

    Available in Lime Oak, Black Silver Fox, Walnut and Mahogany. Chair is covered with beautiful, easy-to-clean plastic. Two spacious drawers. Removable spool rack, complete with lid support. Hand-rubbed finish.

    There's no such thing as too many sewing machines!

    Texas Jan, I was hoping someone else that owns a Singer 9W or Wheeler & Wilson would have come to your rescue by now. My Singer 9W sits behind my Christmas tree right now; so, I can't get to it to inspect it. And I can't recall how or if I removed this plate while cleaning this area.
