    Just a stupid question - are all Davis machines vertical feed?

    No...they made regular style with feed dogs some time after 1900...not sure when.

    I'm finally getting a zero cam! William went on ebay and bought me cams 0 thru 21....they should be here sometime in the first week of January. Got a few attachments at Goodwill the other day, still need some of them, but will pick them up here and there...

    Thanks Miriam! You musta read the same blog I did!! I thought it seemed strange that the person said you shouldn't EVER stitch without a cam on board, when the manuals say nothing of the sort!

    Did Candace get the Davis from the Bay area? Candace...pics please!!
    Nope, wasn't me:> Though I'm still hunting for a Lady Kenmore model 89!

    I'll keep my eyes open for one for you Candace, if you would want to ship it, that is....shouldn't be that much from Oregon to the Bay area, I wouldn't think...
    If you do want me to look, what's your top $ for one?

    Thanks, Charlee! I don't know if I've ever seen one for sale without the table. I'd really like a portable one...I don't know if they made them as portables, though:< I would love to get one for under $100 in good condition. I don't know if that's doable either! :>

    ~grin~ I'll bet it is...I'm on a mission now!! And you're not that far away, might just have to arrange for you to pick it up, or for it to be delivered...William's dad lives in Lodi...

    Lodi is just a skip from me. We've not been to Oregon for a few years but someday I'd love to see your collection. I think my husband needs a reality check(there are others out there like me!). I actually enjoy Lodi a lot, it's a NICE town. I know it's probably a city, but it sure feels more like a town. Thanks Charlee, the more eyes the better! I live near Sacramento...

    If the Davis machines are not all vertical feed, how can you tell from a CL ad which ones do and which ones do not have VF?
