    Oh boy I am having a problem finding anything about my Feldman Hat making chain stiticher. I guess I will clean it up and thru experimentation figure out the threading. It is such a cute little machine. Jon thank you for trying, I it a bust also on info on this machine.

    Figured since I'm a couple of years older now, I ought to change the pic! And yes! Life certainly gets in the way...a LOT!!

    Joe,

    And as soon as I posted that, I found a current thread on here with someone saying their T&S 620-something has plastic gears! I guess you can count on metal in 600/603 and 600E/603E, and then you have to inspect any of the 620 series, and anything 630 through 700s is plastic.

    I'll look through files on my old P4 computer for that Touch & Swear list. Most of my sewing machine collecting, I did in 1998 or 1999 through late 2001 or so. I sold off my surplus cabinets and such in summer of 2004, and I also built a brand new P4 3.0 GHz Northwood CPU desktop computer (ABIT socket 478) Intel 875P motherboard that same summer, and I ported all of my sewing machine data files from my old 440BX P III computers to the new P4. Is that not ancient history now. But the P4 machine still runs great.

    I feel disoriented coming back to sewing machine stuff after ignoring it for over 10 years. All of the web sites that I used to consult as reference documents are gone. The VintageSingers forum is empty. I don't see any of the people that I remember from back then. My Charles Law books and other sewing machine books are in commercial storage. I can't find a darned thing. LOL

    I wonder if there is a hat shop somewhere with one still in use?

    Hi Skip,

    I believe it was Dan that helped out. I did find a patent drawing of what appeared to be your machine-though no threading. Is it a ZZ?

    Some old time hat maker in NYC might still be using "The Feldman" (chuckle).

    I have to slow down a bit. I have a NVF on the work bench and the Feldman. So I will finish the VF and then work on the hat machine. So much fun and so little time. Like yard work and such and then not to mention the honey do's

    This guy is the real deal. I've been there.
    I have a story to tell about a hat and Indianapolis though.
    My son is an absolute hat freak. He has loved hats forever. His big sister and brother got a big kick out of putting hats on him when he was a baby and he knew he got attention... He's just always got on a hat. He is always always on the prowl for a cool hat. One day we were taking a 'short cut' through the seedier areas of Indianapolis and he spied a garage sale with hats. Those weren't just any hats those were derby's and top hats. We HAD to stop. The yard sale was very cool. Besides the hats were all kinds of really cool furniture from 1930s or so and there was a Tin Lizzy parked out there with a for sale sign with a mind numbing price. My son drives a hard bargain at garage sales. He tried on a hat. It fit perfectly - it was a type of top hat. Gorgeous hat. He looked very cool. His mistake was he asked the big guy with the sombrero, white t shirt and orange flip flops "How much for Frosty's hat?" They guy was VERY offended. And told him to leave. There was another man there who stopped my son. He said, "Son, are you really going to put that hat on a snowman?" My son said, "Of course not. I'm going to wear it. I'm a musician." The old guy and my son haggled over the price for a few minutes. Then the old guy told him the other guy's father owned a hat store in Indianapolis. He said that was a $400 hat. My son said he thought it was a pretty good hat and he said he would wear it and take good care of it. He does. Then the old guy told him to get out of there before the big guy figured it out...
