    Kenmore 1754. I have a box of cams and feet and manual but have never seen one of these. Does anyone have one? And would it be worth keeping these in case I run across one?
    Life is made up of bits and pieces. You won't know how it'll turn out till its done.

    Now I know everything ebay can teach me about them. Shouldn't have gone there, now I want one or more...... Has anyone else started looking for a machine after finding the parts?

    Thank you and everyone for their concern. I am feeling so much better. I'm still weak, though. I went back to work today and survived. I am really glad that is only a two day work week. Yes, it has been scary.

    Cathy, I am glad you are feeling better, but be careful, don't overdo. Your body needs a good long rest!

    Miz Johnny, it is always to good to hear from you! We miss you on the board when you are gone long periods of time!

    Miriam, I finished the cheater quilt top and back I am making for my new camper's bed using the new Signature I just bought! The zig zag lock is still frozen and the feed dog drop is still frozen, but now I have time to try to unstick them!

    redmadder, I have two sets extra of top hat Kenmore cams with feed and accessories. I have several machines that use bits and pieces of them. I have no intention of getting rid of them. I do like Kenmore machines. And to answer your other question; yes I have gotten parts and accessories first, then bought a machine to match. Joe

    Yes Cathy, your body does need a good long rest.. One summer I got it, (P) 3 times because I got up and going too soon. As soon as you start to feel weak or breathless, sit and put your feet up. More QB time

    Wow. There are a lot of posts in this Shop's discussion. I am new here, so Hello. I'm Alison. I just got a Bradford 414 and cannot find any information about it so that I can track down a manual She only does straight stitch and cost me all of $10. I have dubbed her The Green Fairy because I think I am going to tumble down the rabbit hole of vintage machine addiction.
    Does anyone know who made Bradford machines?
    The model # on the tag in the back says 414.Attachment 422400

    Hi all,
    I have a specialist-ish question... just curious to know if anyone's tried making/printing their own waterslide decals and what kind of paper/film they've used. There seems to be a lot of different brands and I'd like to minimise trial and error and go straight for the good stuff. Any tips?
    Thanks!
    Amelia

    Knitwitch -

    I can't open your attachment, but I'm guessing you have a "clone" of a Singer 15. Try resizing your picture and post it again. If you have a clone, any 15 manual should give you the info you need about using your machine. Welcome to the board. One more thing- there is a thread or two about 15's and clones. Try checking those threads. The thing that distinguishes the 15's from other machines is that the tension knob is on the left end of the machine.

    Thank, Darren. I'm so sorry it doesn't work. I have no idea how to resize. Thanks for the tip though.

    Slip over to EBay and type "waterslide decal printer" in the search, there is some amazing stuff and a reasonable price.
