By the way, you do a great job with FM! I am not as good as you are, but I do enjoy doing the FM! Congratulations on figuring out how to use the 'spring thing' with Cathy's help!

One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
Yes. The spring needle works great. I hope Cathy can find a source. I'd go ahead and buy some more just to have extras. They are small and could get lost. Personally, I would never be able to get the results I do from treadling as I'm full on pedal to the metal. If I'm doing something very intricate I'll slow a little, but meandering or something like that? Full speed ahead! People that see me do it alway ask how many sewing machines I've burned out. I've not burned out a vintage machine yet!!
Yes, the spring will be a bit more dangerous than a true foot. I will have to be more careful. Over my career in sewing I've sewed a finger twice. I don't want to make it 3 times.
Elusive Davis made Davis Rotary spotted on CA Craigslist. Not much to look at but made my day:
Been reading everything everybody posts, enjoy it all. I've been busy make more miniature quilts because I've run out of room for big ones and I've made and given all my grandkids bed sized quilts. I am going to make all my greats (4 so far) bed sized ones soon. I've made them all crib sized ones. I'm into piecing by hand so I have something to do while TV is on (fall asleep otherwise).
I do have a long arm quilting machine and I love to use the Essential Pro thread from Connecting Threads (no affiliation) it's 70 weigh 3 ply and comes in many colors. My vintage machines love it also, my computerized Brother likes it on top but not in the bobbin. Just thought I'd toss that info in about the thread in case anybody wants to try a really thin, strong thread. Another good thing is the price is very affordable.
If someone needs to be walked through timing the 319, I could help, but I did it by 'hook and crook' and a lot of praying and luck!
