    NKlaura, That is an Awesome machine, be sure and let us know how it works out for you. I love my big old "Indy"

    I found this little page and video of an old 31 and it seems pretty capable to me!

    NKlaura, I dont know if you are aware or not, but I think most of the modern industrial feet will feet these old 31's, they are a "standard high shank" some very interesting possabilities!
    i have also heard people talk of setting them up for FMQ and using them that way because all of the available area under the arm. ends up being sort of a "poor mans" long arm machine.

    Thank you for noticing my new Avator! I decided since I go by "BoJangles," it should be his photo on my Avator! That black horse is my BoJangles!

    Janice and Monica, I am going to have to bid on that machine! Geeze, and yes I bet it will fit in my cabinet! But, what fun to have a second Pfaff treadle head!

    Geeze, look at this! It is way overpriced in my opinion, but what a cool looking Bernina! http://sacramento.craigslist.org/hsh/3014948874.html The ad says it is worth 3 times more than they are asking? Why? It looks vintage to me?

    I was just wondering if anyone knows when the first Singer 99 was electrified and put in the bentwood case. I just got one that is dated 1924, and was wondering if they were made much earlier. It is in the start of the AA serial numbers, and my sources of the serial numbers doesn't have any model numbers with the single letter serial numbers.
    There is a place on the motor where there's a little spring is sticking up. Will that bother the machine? What do I need to ask for to get it fixed? There was a screw top that fits the area, but won't fasten down on it. And the side plate bobbin cover needs the spring and the screw to fasten it down. Other than that the little machine just clicks along so nicely and is a joy to sew with. Thanks.

    Oh yes, the bentwood cover has a funky silver handle on it. Any idea where I can get an original one or one that looks original to replace the handle?
