    If this was close to home I would be in my car...
    No, I am glad you can't get it - cause I'd have to figure out a way to buy it from you!!!!!!!

    No this FW was not on Craigslist. It was a yard sale. I don't remember seeing one on Craigslist for $125? Geeze, I better pay more attention! No, this makes number 6! We have 7 granddaughters.

    Another Davis like my original Davis Vertical Feed. Cabinet looks like it is in great shape too!

    Here are some pictures you should find interesting. We have just got back from Poland, where we stayed with my husband's cousin, and I just had to take pictures of her machine. She bought it in 1980, and she runs it on the motor rather than the treadle. Charlee, you should like the wooden treadle - it's the bottom panel of the cabinet, and Miriam, you can keep your eyes open for one of these next time you buy a job lot of machines!

    Muv, I've wondered where you've been off to. I haven't seen one like that around here. I'll be sure to keep my eyes open. So it runs on a treadle or a motor?

    Muv,

    We like that machine and I like that treadle cabinet. Can you tell us about that machine? I've not seen one like it before.

    looks like a beauty - I bet it would do FM real nice - nice arm... I bet it would treadle if wanted... I have no idea where it is though

    Miriam,

    That is a 31-15 and does wonderful FM. There is a huge amount of space to the left of the needle. It should run very smoothly.
    I have a 31-20 treadle and LOVE it. The only difference between the 31-15 and the 31-20 is the size of the bobbin and the related area.
