    Anyone have a manual for the motorized to sell??
    Anyone need one for a treadle??
    Thanks!!!

    It doesn't really matter if it's for a treadle or electric machine, the manual will be pretty much the same. Many of my early E machines came with a model that explained both the treadle and motor.
    At any rate, the information you need will all be in this manual.

    I have a question on what the abbreviations mean from the Singer site.
    These were copied from the site as examples.
    I understand that K stands for hand-crank.

    And sometimes after the year it will state "cloth". What does that mean?

    Here are the machines I picked up over the weekend. The Domestic is a Coffin Top Treadle. The Minnesota, is a treadle, without the cabinet. The Wheeler & Wilson has a W9 on it, but, it says Wheeler & Wilson on it. They aren't in great shape, but, I'm happy with them.

    So after 2 gallons of paint stripper and 50lb bag of black beauty in the media blaster this is what she came out looking like.

    You did a stupendous job Billy. That base is just plain gorgeous! I am sure you will have a very pleased customer.

    Lovely cabinet and machine Beth!

    Wow, this is the first actual Wheeler & Wilson I have seen. The machine shape looks like my Singer 9W, except my machine says Singer and doesn't have that big W on the side!

    Great find! It is so much fun to get the old machines and bring life back into them.

I found this post by Charlee http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-45521-1.htm that shows other needle options. Guess I'll need to start looking for bobbins too. I did buy a new belt on ebay last night. I'm sure the leather shoestring will be integrated into one of my MANY projects that are being further delayed now that I found this shop. Beth :roll:
    Beth, my machine does have the reddish-orange tint, but it is not as pronounced as yours. I didn't have to clean my Singer 9W. This is the shape it was when I bought it. Your machine is a little older than mine so maybe that made the difference or maybe mine should be more orangish? Miz Johnny could probably answer that question as she has Wheeler & Wilson machines.

    No I did not get any attachments! You are really lucky that you did get the attachments!

    Yes, Charlee and Billy are looking into the needle thing with the 9W machines. You are lucky you had a needle with the machine. Those 127X1 needles are very hard to find and if you do find them, you will pay through your teeth for them.
