    If she gets the one owned by that strip tease artist, I would love to know. It didn't look to be in really great shape compared to others, but all the same.....

    DH brought home a Singer 72w19 Hemstitch sewing machine, serial number W568268 but I was not able to find out much about it. According to Singers web sight the W records were lost. I was able to find that it was made in 1911 to 1919 and was made in Bridgeport Connecticut. Any info would be great.

    I't a double needle modle and has piercers. It came with the instruction book, 9 bobbins, and 12 needles in it's original cabnet.

    Hi,
    I bought a "new" old machine today from Craig's List, $30.00 for a 1909 Singer treadle in it's cabinet. The machine is in pretty good shape, looks like it will clean up nicely. The cabinet, is another story. The cast iron base is rusty but ok, the cabinet top has bad water damage, peeling veneer. Does anyone know of a good website to refinish/or should I try to replace it? your thoughts? Thanks

    I have reveneered a singer treadle cabinet before and if you have some wood working experience then I would go for it. Lowes has the correct thickness veneer for the treadle in the you finish cabinet department.

    Billy,
    After reading all the great posts in the shop (all 408 pages!) I knew you or another of the many great reference people on the forum would know where to get the correct veneer. I think I will take a chance and re-do the cabinet top, i have a really handy, retired neighbor! Thanks

    Remember a few pages back I wrote that my DH and DS brought home a featherweight that was born in my birth year? Well when we looked up the serial number I found out it was born on my birthday as well. How cool is that? DH said he wouldn't take a $1000.00 for it now. He's an old softy anyway. It's still in good working condition more than I can say about myself.

    I thought you might like to see my sewing chair I use with the redeye. It was the chair my wife's grandma used when she sewed with the redeye. It was already painted so I just spruced it up a bit. Glenn

    That chair rocks Glenn Where did you get the design to do it and what did you print it on to to make a transfer?

    Billy, You Will not beleive this but it is taken with my digital camera, scanned and then printed out on paper and applied to the chair with several coats of shellac. You have to have a steady hand to take the picture under the arm of the redeye. It took several trys. Glenn
