    Ok Sharon, What other machines are you hiding? I once went to your webshot page when you posted awhile back, and I don't remember seeing this in your machine collection. I like your machine covers that you have made. Did you follow some pattern or did you just measure and make up a pattern yourself?

    It is in the Virtual section and not on this thread. Go to user defined sections and click subscribe and it will be on your home page. Then you can click on it and any thread on the forum that has anything to do with the Vintage sewing machines will be there for you to view.

    Sharon I bought my Pfaff 1222e brand new in 1976! It is and has always been my favorite machine. I am now in love with my Mother's Pfaff 130, but I use my 1222e for all my binding because of the built in walking foot.

    Congratulations, you have a great machine!

What would you give for a Davis treadle? He tells me it has all the parts and some extras..has the Davis shuttle bobbin...the pics sent were great...machine has lots of gold decals, it's in a dark cabinet, he thought was veneer, has the old dark patina (pateena?). He only lives 45 miles from me and if I pick it up he will take $10 off the price. I'm sure thinking about it. He nor his wife have tried sewing on it, so doesn't know if it works...but said the shuttle goes back and forth when they pedal. He said it's being stored out in the garage and it's cold so he did say the belt was slipping when they tried to pedal cuz it's stiff. Any thoughts?
    It has the certificate of sale and the instruction book with it.

    What type of Davis? How much? And don't agree to the $10 off because of you picking it up. I would talk him down more than the $10.
    What type?? I'm clueless. What types are there? It's a treadle, that's all I know except for the above.

    Misseva, I clicked on to the pictures section then went into the search box and typed in 1910 Red Eye and found your picture. Very pretty machine I love the Red Eyes. I will be doing a happy dance tomorrow because I will be getting a Red Eye too. It's in a cabinet. Enjoy!!!!!

    I see White machines quite often on Craigslist. The best thing to do with Craigslist is to look every day or so otherwise the good ones get snapped up quickly.

    Randa, I think what Vintamotif is asking you is - is it a Davis Vertical Feed or a regular feed Davis?

    Irishrose I wish you were closer to me, I have two White's, one is a 1950's in a cabinet, the other a portable and very heavy - page 392 here. I have not measured the one in the cabinet, but the portable measures 9"s from needle to arm - throat area. Are you sure these people measured the length of the throat not the width? The older Whites were really big heavy machines.

    I will measure the 1950's White today -- it is in the garage.

    Mine has never given me any problems like that. I would maybe change the needle and adjust the pressure foot tention on top of the machine. Other then that I wouldn't be able to help you.
