    Does anyone in the Wichita or Kansas City have a FW for sale?

    Here's the best looking Davis I've seen, but they want way too much money! http://sacramento.craigslist.org/atq/2155969749.html

    Doesn't this look like a fiddle base pre 1900 machine?
    Really good price!

    OMG! That is a very nice machine, but way too much money for me.

    Yeah... that was where I first read about them. But I've never heard anyone talk about owning the machine, or talk about seeing one. That tells me they must be scarcer than FWs, just wonder if they're priced accordingly.
    They are cute! I haven't seen any while looking at CLs. They must be hiding in attics or basements...or maybe Miz Johnny's house. :)
    Nope, not my house. I'm back working in the basement this weekend, though, so you never know what's going to turn up!! (Mostly rufflers and about 800,000 yards of fabric so far.)

    I want to help too! That would be fun going through all that fabric.

    Hey, Billy, my modern-machine-mechanic told me that I could use the Schmetz needles I use for my newer machines in my Singer 27 ~ yes? he said they are the same size as the 15x1? I am going to size it up in the next couple days (only got one needle in the machine)... but that would be great because I buy those needles by the 100's!

    I'm not Billy, but your modern machine tech is correct. The Singer 27 uses a 15x1 as do the majority of the old Singers. The exceptions are the 319,306,206. That's all as far as I know.

    Woohoo! I'm going to compare a new Schmetz with the one that came with ... I'll look at them side-by-side under a loupe and see if there is any difference. :) Happy day! I do machine embroidery on my Husqvarna so I buy them in the 100's boxes so I'm not so stingy changing out needles often.
