    at 75 $ you can't go wrong...consew copied these. parts will interchange.

    that one is in a modren table , I'm sure a updated motor...

    Do you understand the speed these run ? most do not. These run at one speed only, which is full speed.

    hit the pedal and it will GO.. the only way to get a full range of speeds is to buy and install a servo motor ..then they work like a home machine,, servo's sell from 150 to 250..

    go get it, you could reslle it for 3 x's that much
    Ok John - now that I know you are a guy - I have to agree A LITTLE BIT with what you are saying, but I'd get the 319 too! I love my 319w in treadle!

    I just today moved my two 31's into my barn! I am confiscating one stall to set up my 31's for repairing saddle blankets, horse blankets, some tack etc. I have tried using the 31 a couple times, but the thing scared me to death! It takes off racing! I will 'have' to practice and practice with those mean machines or I will end up sewing a finger or something! I love them, though! Oh yeah, both my 31's were given to me along with a bunch of attachments for them and the cabinet - which is electric but looks like a treadle!

    I worked on my Hales Crescent's cabinet today - I had already stained and repaired the cabinet - now it is just finishing it! I also worked on my Hitachi cabinet - sanded and stained it! I won't really use the 31's until I can sand and stain their cabinet too!

    Oh and I sewed this morning with my Pfaff 260 - which still baffles me! Why don't you try explaining why my machine works fine with one side plugged in and the old knee control, but won't run that way with a more modern foot control?

    The spool pin is missing. I do not know what the condition is. The owner was $100 for it. I can not go see it for about 8 weeks. If he still has it I will go then. I all ready have three 66's that are Red Eyes and really do not need another one. Kathie
    Kathie are you feeling better? Hows the broken ankle? Well I wouldn't pay $100 for a 66 except maybe the centennial one! I have one red eye, and 2 'newer' electric plain ones! There are lots and lots of 66's out there, but it would be nice to have a centennial!

    Has anyone heard from Texas Jan? She has been going through so much, and it worries me that she hasn't surfaced for a few days?

    Nancy, I wanted a LBOW, too, as Annie is a mocha, but when I went without Annie for almost two weeks because the SM guy had as much trouble as I did getting the plug back together, I gave up and bought the first one that I could win in my price range. They can share the attachments and Annie is slated for a paint job, though if I have back surgery, I doubt that I'll be lifting machines, even a light one. The White Rotary weighs in at 39 pounds. There is no needle in it so I can't compare. I'll have to find the needle/machine site. I can put in 15X1 and see what happens. I'll try to get a picture tomorrow. A family member has been diagnosed with kidney cancer and I'm the only caretaker, so I have been sitting in ICU and have to travel next week. Name:  scraps.jpg

    I did take the motor off but there wasn't time to undo the electrical cords. I've never seen such elegant, careful work in coiling the wires around the terminals. Watching the grandkids so will have to deal with this another time. I'll be back home soon and there is no sew and vac place near. It may just be the brushes. Anyway, my 201 and 15 are waiting at home. Gosh, I do miss them. Then there is the Necchi, the newer New Home, the Redeye, the 66 handcrank. Still, I had become fond of working with Myrtle. Maybe its time I learned to rebuild motors. Thanks for the suggestions.
    Life is made up of bits and pieces. You won't know how it'll turn out till its done.

    While going to yard sales today I found this Singer buttonholer. Looks like it has never been used and all the parts are there plus a pkg. of 4 other discs of different sizes and the instruction book to tell you all about it. I guess what I'm curious about and have not seen it mentioned on here is the message on the end flap of the box that reads

    The SINGER* Deluxe Monogrammer adds a personal touch to linens, towels, clothes, other ites with 1 1/2" script initials. Floral motif included, too!

    You all remember I am new at this and plus my old brain doesn't remember to well anymore. Will go google this when I get off here, but just curious if I need to keep my eyes open for this!!

    Whatever I said in anger, Whatever I shouted in spite, I'm sorry I spoke so quickly--I thought of some worse ones tonight.

    Well Candace, I see the Pfaff 260 you mentioned on our local Craigslist for $400! I sent them an e-mail a couple days ago asking if they had actually seen a Pfaff 260 SELL for $400? I told the people who are trying to sell this machine that you can ask anything, but maybe they should look and see what the machines are actually selling for! The asking price and what actually gets sold are two different things! http://sacramento.craigslist.org/for/3105270595.html Well, it looks like they listened a little - it is now lowered to $300 - what a deal!

    On a side note, I spent a couple of hours zig-zagging batting scraps together with a little half plastic late 70s-early 80s White. Not too bad, but I'd hate to have to use it all the time. Love my little tanks that don't wiggle and jiggle all around.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Havplenty,
    I've never seen a black 319 before, it looks interesting. I guess its a good thing I'm in Texas or I'd have to go check that one out.
