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

    Thanks. I am really excited to get started on them. Right now I have so many things to do, so, it will be a little while before I actually get to them. If there were 72 hours in a day, I might get something done. Lol.

    Do you know where I can find some info on the Wheeler & Wilson? I'd like to find out an approximate year it was made. Also, would like to find a manual for it. Might help if I knew how to thread it also. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Laura if Miz Johnny gets on line, she can give you all that information. I posted a link the other day to Beth on where to find a manual for her 9W if you look back a couple pages on this forum. They thread really different -- the main thing is you go all the way around the tension disk -- not just down one side. And the Wheeler & Wilson's wheel goes backwards to a Singer's wheel.

    Ok everyone, the people on this forum are just the greatest. I just went to needlebar.org/main~nb/manuals and there are lots of different machines listed and manuals for those machines! I think someone was wanting a Davis manual a while back -- well, this site has manuals for lots of different makes!

    I would not have know about this site if it weren't for this group!

    Thank you Nancy. I'll go get the manual. Now to remember that the wheel goes backwards. I sure am learning a lot on this board. I'm so glad to have found it.

    Yes, she is indeed a beauty. If you haven't named her yet, depending on your age, you could call her "Rhonda" after Rhonda Flemming, the famous movie star redhead.

    It a a Singer Model 66-1 Treadle I got off Craigslist for free! :) :) :)

    Works beautifully except for the bobbin winder I broke while cleaning her.

    Isn't she a beauty. Haven't named her yet. :thumbup:
