Welcome to the Quilting Board!
In my opinion most of those Yahoo groups a bit stiff.
I like it here since we can be chatty. I also like it here since we can post photos with our comments. An instant referral on this site versus the some other sites where one has to hunt for a photo of the subject of the post.
My grouping of dates are anything before 1900s, 1900-1920, 1920-end of WWII, 1950s, 1960-1970, and any date after 1970s.
Most machines I like to work with are in treadles, and those machines are around 1900-1920 with a couple in the 1950.
I also dislike sites asking for donations while there are so many sites, like this and yahoo, that are for free.
So, I'm NOT a member of those sites.
I'm not willing to paying for someone's travels, hotels, and nice dinners.
Yes, I'm bold and feisty today!
I use ad-block for this site. So, I don't see the ads.

I cleaned my one Davis NVF recently. Not difficult to do. After cleaning, the machine is still loud. I was told if I cleaned its guts, then the machine would quiet down. Big laugh, it is still the loudest machine I own while the treadle is one of my smoothest and quietest.
Monica, question....the treadle belt on my NVF has started slipping out of the groove on the wheel on the irons...is it too loose? It was a brand new belt when I put it on.

What's neat about the Yahoo group system is it's ease of use and everything needed is built in (spreadsheet, photo's, links, files, etc. I'm not very computer literate so this was a great benefit. Plus anyone could start a "Kermit the Frog" Yahoo group in about 5 minutes and it costs nothing.
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
OK gals, what does NVF stand for when you are referring to these machines?
