    Yep, I agree with Candace - no difference whether it is a short or long bed, except the long bed won't go into the Singer card table! I just wanted a long bed because I already have a short bed! I like the added table length because I am so use to using the acrylic tables with my machines to add bed length and width! I love the 301's, they sew great, are really easy to use, use the same bobbins as my FW's, and the machine itself only weighs 16lbs unlike all the other vintage Singers that weigh a ton!

    MS camping and fishing trip

    My fishy quilt in the camper(a little fuzzy), did not use it much on this trip it was 105 in MS, 1830 quilt made by a slave unfortunatley I could not afford it. Goodies bought in the antique shops around town a celluloid tatting shuttle, pin cushion some old patterns for Pat's civil war dresses, a basket of vintage thread(to make spool pin covers), a wood burned music holder made in 1890, a small flag quilt hanging made after the civil war and the Franklin with original Franklin labled motor( Of course will end up as a treadle). This is the machine I will do the tut on. I don't think I spent over 25 dollars for all. We had such fun and Pat found several items also.

    There is a card table for longbed 301's. I happen to have the card table for shortbed 301's, 401 and 500 machines.

    I would like to know where you want me to put the tutoiral on the cleaning of this Franklin. Do you want it here in the VSMS or its own thread or even under the fishy quilt. Let me know in a day or so. Thank you

    Nancy, Congrats on the mocha longbed 301. That was a great score at a flea market. I now have purchased my 2nd 301, also a long bed mocha, from a gal on the board who is moving and downsizing. It has some tension issues (don't we all )but she let me have it for the price she bought it plus shippping to my door. I am thrilled and younger DD is also thrilled. She wants to make her own quilt with some help from me plus my fabric thread & batting but she wants to quilt and likes my 301 better than her Singer 362. Gotta agree with her about the 301 being better than the 362.

    Melinda, You might find your Kenmore manual from one of the Yahoo Kenmore group sites.

    I stand corrected on the flag quilt hanging. I counted 50 stars Oh well but it only cost $2.00 so I don't feel to cheated LOL. Well I guess you can still say it was made after the civil war.

    Skip, Neat pics!!

    I think you should put the tutorial in it's own thread, and we'll link it in the sticky for cleaning machines so that it can be found....and if you don't mind, I'll put it on my blog too!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Sounds good to me I think I will do just that. Pat said I had to wash and clean the camper before I start on this machine. She likes it ready to go for the next trip(we have about three more trips for the summer) I had better get busy huh!!!! I am on the look out for a bobbin slide plate for it if I can't find one I will make one out of plexi glass. I am hoping this will give everyone a better idea about the cleaning and clear coat restoration and even repairing chips in the japan finish. Charlee you may use any of my techniques in your blog don't mind at all.
