    Looking at one of their local websites I found what I think is a Singer 48K. Is it a 48K and if it is are needles easy to find? One other question, do you think I am a little crazy thinking about carrying this sewing machine on the airplane with me? Attachment 309119
    Pretty machines! I'd carry on that hand crank!

    My DH made me laugh today. My DB came to visit, I had digitized out an embroidery design for him (he helped me by bringing me a new/old lap top that would work with my software (it doesn't like the new computer upgrades!) Anyways, I sewed that out for him and then I hemmed a pair of pants. Since I was just on the Janome machine anyways, I switched back to regular sewing, pushed the blind hem stitch button and started sewing. Here's the funny part - my DH came into the room to see what was making all the noise - my older machines are so much quieter!

    Well of course I DO, but it is buried under a mound of machines and other stuff. I don't remember it being signed that way, and I'm having back issues, so it will be a while before I can get to it.

Most likely there will be someone on Treadleon that can come to your rescue with a wealth of info and possible parts. I always just google for info, and then I get lost reading soo many websites. Have fun cleaning that machine up!

    This was my lucky day. Pat and I went out to eat and then stop by our favorite antique shop. I came home with a complete set of attachments for the my 319 including the plates and three needles in the original singer packet for 206x13 needles. It was only 4 bucks. I was a happy camper today. Thanks to Miriam I now scan do anything the manual says I Can.

    Oh, Glen, I didn't realize you needed other stuff too..........
    Have you got it worked out to hand crank that 319?

    I picked up a dreadful looking Singer 500 this afternoon. Head shaking. The lady said this one was her mother's. Ya sure. She just got out of church, too. That machine had a straight sew foot, no other attachments, no disks, no manual, light hanging half off, hinge pin gone, top door falling off, the stitch selector is always messed up, the throat plate lever rusted out, bad cords, runs slow, paint blistering, no case, no cabinet and so on............ She is going to need some TLC to say the least.

    Miriam, I thought the 500 I got last week was a sorry case. Although I have cleaned it up during the game and she runs smooth and quiet. Now just need the knob for the tension to see how she sews. But lots of paint gone along with the top lid and faceplate.
