Welcome to the Quilting Board!
New post: You've just gotta love the 'Little Old Ladies' (3/4 size or smaller vintage machine) lots of projects... please do add pics of your 3/4 size machines.
NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first
I just got this on eBay, hopefully it'll arrive safely. It needs work but it'll give me a chance to learn about fixing and cleaning a vintage machine. Plus I just love her. She's a 185J. I hope the picture shows up. I know I probably should have waited but it was at a price I could afford and it will be good practice for me, right. Did I mention I love her.

Generic question about shuttle machines.
Yesterday when I was testing my Newhome Greyhound I noticed that when it was running slow, it ran smooth. Then as I sped it up it started vibrating badly. After it passed a certain point is smoothed down again.
Is this normal or should I look for something wrong?
All of the shuttle machines I have ( four I think ) have some vibration, but not to the extent of this one.
Wanted to see if it is anything like my (one) machine. Mine has a Greyhound on it!
While I'm asking questions, I've been going to ask about the machines that some of you are using to FMQ on. What is a good measurement to look for for the distance between the needle and the arm? Just curious I guess.
Whatever I said in anger, Whatever I shouted in spite, I'm sorry I spoke so quickly--I thought of some worse ones tonight.
I got nothing done with machines this weekend. I did make a new duvet cover out of queen sheets, as our old one got a hole somehow.
