    I just couldn't help myself. I had to e-mail them about this one and try to set them straight. Shame on me, I"m a bad boy. WAY overpriced.
    Oh thank goodness. I was going to email them and tell they were way over priced, but I talked myself out of it.
    Well, someone needs to kick me in the fanny for doing it. I feel like I've been in a pointless arguement with some very stubborn person. I got the pics and inspected it very closely. Now, mind you I'm no expert, but it was far from mint condition. I sent links for grading and recommended some sites to check out to get a better idea of it's value and I was basically told I didn't know what I was talking about and that it was MINT. LOL! That's all I can say. If I were buying it I wouldn't offer more than $250 to $350 and that's what I told them. Oh well. Some people are just stubborn and possibly ignorant. If they think for one second they are going to get anywhere near $1500 for it they are dreaming and if somene does pay that much they are uninformed to say the least. I hope I learned my lesson.

    Thanks Billy and Bucky. DH went with me and talked me into getting the black one too. He will be fixing it. Boy does that black case smell!!!!! LOL My mini van reaks like Feather Weight and it is not good! Hehehehe Any tips on how to get rid of the smell and the mold stuff? Also I was so surprised to see no silver side plate on the 1964 FW. It is just creme colored like the machine. The belt on the 1964 is odd in that it is ribbed/tread on the belt. Fun, fun, fun though!

    If you are using a Windows machine, try the Internet Explorer web browser and go to the site. You should get "Open", "Save", or "Cancel" as your three options.

    The problem might be Chrome.

    Just an idea.

    Thanks Aardie, I tried it in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and MSN. I don't have Internet Explorer. But I was able to get it. Someone sent it to me. Thanks again.

    Thanks Billy!
    I do have to share them with my hubby though. He says the black one is a man machine. ~smile~ I am not sure who was more excited about getting the machines, him or me.

I have done everything I can think of like * , % , ( ), = between, beginning or end of my search words but that doesn't help. Control F on the page may help me find something on the page that came up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I really do enjoy this thread. Thanks for starting it.
    Right now there is no way of searching this particular thread for a particular machine. You just have to scan the pages. Complicated I know but until we can come up with some way of finding certain machines or information we are stuck with surfing the thread!

    UGHHHH
    So I went to make my first quilt on the treadle red eye that I got last week.
    I have sewed on it everyday pretty much but just practice things you know a piece of fabric and off I go.

    Well tonight it wants to start acting up.

    First the bobbin keeps getting stuck. Well not the bobbin but the thread. Like I can not pull the tread out.
    When I get it going again I sew for a little bit and then it sticks again and puckers up the fabric.


    Now the belt keeps slipping.
    It happened the first night I had the treadle and I tightened the belt as it was REALLY loose. But I looked at it and its not loose (well a little but no more then it should be).

    Anyone one have any suggestions?
    I was really looking forward to making my first quilt on the treadle.

    I have oiled it and wiped it down but it looks in good shape no gunk build up.
    It was used by an older lady till she past away so it has not been stored long.
