Hi. My name is Barb and I am the owner of the old Eldredge. Your stitch length selector raises much higher than mine which tells me something is still frozen inside somewhere. But I'll put that Liquid Wrench to it and get it working yet, even if I have to take it completely apart. I've not posted often to the board and couldn't remember where I posted my message. Love getting old. I'd be happy to send you pictures to your private email as I'm not exactly sure how to post them or where to post them here. Have you located a patent impression on the cabinet just below the hand wheel? Mine is 1901. I really want to get this beauty humming again. I got most of the rust off with Brasso and elbow grease and old knit tighty whities that belonged to my husband. I was able to get a manual online for a model newer than this with a complete parts list. Felt very lucky to find it.
Stay in touch.
Barb, I'm sorry but I do NOT give out my private email. So you can't be sending me any pictures to my private email, I don't care how old or sweet you are. You seemed to have no difficultly navigating around before and posting pictures to the Quilting Board. I checked your info.
I'm willing to help all, but PLEASE just post the questions on this thread and not to my QBpm. Thank you.
