    I am not a collector but can see how I might become one. Those little FW are so cute. I will be keeping my eyes open for one. Those littleguys will sure last longer than our computerized machines, I would guess. Mary M

    I think I read on here somewhere that Billy was able to weld some of the machines that had cracks. I'm sure he will answer your post as soon as he reads it.
    :thumbup:
    Yep I can weld it back up, but the machine will need to be refinished for sure after a burn most of the paint or Japan off of it.

    Yeah I can feel your pain on that one. And we both can relate to the poor 99 that is sitting on my work bench right now.

    I am looking at 2 treadle sewing machines. I am told that one is a model 127 G9790523, the other one is a model 66 G4025863. Both appear to be in good working condition and about the same price. Which one is more desirable? I do plan to use the machine.

    Depending on your needs or desires I should say. The 127 is a Vibrating Shuttle which to me is a soothing machine to use. The 66 is more of a modern drop in bobbin type of a machine and the machine is a lot smoother when it operates. I love both machines and it would be hard to chose just one of them. But I use my 66 more than the 27 I have.
