You can keep up with Billy here
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
We just love him - we didn't have to go through the puppy stuff and he is so loving probably because he loves it here!
Nancy[/QUOTE] Nancy, when did you get the new dog? Bring pictures on the 13th, I want to see. Pit bulls are the sweetest dog, so kind and loving, lucky you. Kathie
The 128 runs fine when sewing but willl not move when the bobbin winder is engaged. Help!!!

I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
Thank you for the reply. I think I will give the wheelguard a quick soak and see what happens. If I lose any decals, those are small then I'll know if I can use the kerosene on the body of the machine. I assume kerosene will work in cold temps. I really don't want to use anything flammable in the house in this weather. The kitchen is too close to the laundry room with its pilot lights. I used Dawn and more SM oil tonight and I can see a glimmer of decals under the tarry junk.

So I am cleaning this Raymond and under a very rusty yucky area I came across this pic of a beaver and what looks to be a signature.... Did all the Raymonds have signatures?
It's a shame she has so much rust. Also, does anyone know where I could get a back slide plate(rusted) and decals?
Sorry, I'm not very knowledgeable on Raymond machines but admire the history of the company and the man (except the no alcohol part). The rust from the slide plate can be removed with a wire wheel and varying degrees of steel wool fairly easily. I don't believe there is a Raymond decal set on the market. Perhaps a talented artist can touch up the decals . Good Luck.
