    Here's a new "old" one for ya'll. Picked up an Amica Nelco Maxi 3500 at Goodwill yesterday for $6.50. It is missing a slide plate and the top to the case. Weird machine! The feed dog assembly moves instead of the needle bar!

    So far I have figured out it is a late 60's Italian model made by Vigorelli. All metal gear changes and the unique feed dog system were the reasons for the purchase. At home, the top came off and I discovered a very strange belt that looks like canvas and metal links! Anyone know anything about this unusual critter? I don't have a single bobbin to fit it.

    sounds like Riccar - sort of - well at least that belt does.

    Probably taking care of her father-in-law.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Here is a pic of my newest. I did find a Husqvarna-Viking bobbin in my stash-o-stuff that works. Strong, STRONG machine. Now if only I could find a manual...Name:  AmicaNelco3500.jpg

    Davis Vertical feed

    Went to Jennb's place last week and saw her "herd". What a bunch of nice machines she has, and when she gets her sewing studio set up, it will be awesome!!! I think I liked her Pfaff about the best or maybe one of her Jones.
    I've been begging for one of her Davis Vertical Feed machines for about 80 months and she sold it to me last week. It is a bit of a do it yourself project, but that's what I like best. I actually have the machine sewing now and the mechanics are clean for the most part. Now to do the detail work on the machine.
    The cabinet is going to be a major challenge. I've been gluing separated cabinet pieces for a week. The top is missing the veneer completely. I've picked Skip's brain, poor guy, and am getting there. Got the irons back together, and have two headless bushings left over. Cannot figure where they go. Hopefully on the cabinet somewhere. lol here is the puzzle when I unloaded her last week. Skip says she is about a 1917 machine. I know she bites, because I ran her rusty needle through my index finger(missed the nail). That's a first for me, so now I've been exposed to antique sewing machine disease really good. Also got a tetanus shot, just to be safe. Will post more when I get her all done.
    Thanks Jennb!! One more off my "want" list that I have.
