I could try a heavy needle to see if it will budge it at all. I'm thinking that the best thing to do is to either leave it taped, which is temporary at best, or glue the cap down on the thing. I'd be very careful about the glue if I did that as I know I don't want it to get into the spring area.
    You aren't talking about putting the screwdriver in the square metal part around the spring, are you? The metal isn't part of the plastic screw, is it? I figured it was part of the motor unit.
    OK, the hollow square in the bakelite (plastic) cap is showing. Good news is no drilling. The flat screwdriver goes across the diagonal corners. If the cap is in real tight it won't come out and chip off the plastic. Don't mess with the square metal brush holder tube.

    If the cap doesn't come off fairly easily with the flat screwdriver, I would keep it taped or pin point glue untill the brushes wear out which is hopefully a long time off. You can fool with it then.

    Didn't Davis farm out their cabinet construction? I'm probably wrong, thinking of another company, but I think I remember someone else built their cabinets. So that could account for all the different handles. I have 1970s dresser drawer round handles on my pumpkin orange Davis cabinet....LOL They never thought of those in 1915!!

    I don't think so, Miriam. I have seen a couple of these old sewing tables. It's rectangular, and the legs fold toward the middle from both ends like a modern folding table. I don't know how old...I saw one that looked like maybe 1930s or so, but that's just a guess.

    Yes, Davis farmed out there cabinets to T. Kundtz Co. of Cleveland, O. and possibly others. I have an 1885 and 1892 cabinet stamped with his name on it. He also made White cabinets and others until he was bought out by White in 1920 or so.

    Well, the body of the quilt is done. I am now piecing the borders!

    Here is a really good deal and I love the cabinets that say the name of the machine! http://sacramento.craigslist.org/atq/3052343175.html

    When my nephew lived in AZ, they had shitzu dogs & puppies. A coyote jumped over their front yard fence while they were standing there, grabbed one of the puppies and jumped back over the fence. My nephew vaulted over the fence and chased the coyote down the dry creek bed, and eventually the coyote dropped the puppy and kept running. The puppy was OK with only mild scratches.

    Now that everyone is back in the shop, I'll ask my question again....does anyone know the measurements for a 3/4 machine? That little New Glenwood I just got seems small to me, but I don't know what size is considered 3/4. Anyone who hasn't seen the picture, go look in th Pictures thread. She's a real beauty....those decals are in great condition, and they just glow!!
