    Laura,

    I know that I said I needed to "find a project to use this fabric on".
    But don't jump to any conclusions, I didn't say I was going to actually sew.

Wicked good score, by the way. Now you have to start sewing it up! Laura

    I dug out my Singer 12 and it's measurement is 6 1/8".

    Anyone else have a machine we haven't listed?

    Two more. The 115 is also 6 7/8" and the New Home CZ (which is probably the same as the Anker RZ) is 6 3/4".

    I suppose I could measure the Willcox & Gibbs . We have some German hand crank machines as well but I have figured out model numbers on them yet so the measurements wouldn't mean much.

    Welcome to the friendliest board on the 'net! No matter what your question, you will find someone on here who knows the right answer. Most of us are addicts who don't want to be cured. LOL! We have more than a few vintage machines and love them. You really can't have one or two! I've got a 1925 66 treadle, a 1907 27 treadle, and a 1951 15 electric, as well as an assortment of other things! I love and use them all for different things. DH always asks what I plan on doing with each one I bring home. He always gets the same answer--sew, of course. It is an addiction and we are all enablers. Enjoy your time here!

    Hi, I have a question, will the spoked hand wheel from a 128 fit a 99k?
    Thank you,

    Post any measurements that you get so I can add to the list.

    Cathy,

    I've added pinkCastleDH's measurements and as soon as I get some done I'll post them.

    Ah come on Cathy, you can find a nice project to work on at the next "Girls Night Out!" Everyone, our local TOGA/sewing machine repair guru joined us at our last "Girls Night Out!" We are trying to get her hooked on coming once a month! Now she has the fabric to make a darling quilt, or tote, or purse, something! No excuses not to come and sew Cathy! We all know you won't have a problem finding a machine to bring!

I guess they may not have one specific for the 229. (?) Do you have a good source for a size wheel for the Pfaff?
    I had to purchase a stitch wheel for my Pfaff 260 off of e-bay. Those wheels are very hard to find and a little pricey when you do find one, but if you can find one reasonably priced - I'd get it! Or you could just find a second Pfaff that comes with a stitch wheel. I now have two stitch wheels, but they are different! The stitch wheel I purchased for my 260, which is a 1961 machine, is not the same as the stitch wheel that came with my 230, which is a 1958 machine!
