    Anyway it is an Eldridge "B" and the best I can tell it was made in 1885. It can not be any later than 1886 but I have a real good friend Annie looking at a bunch of photos of the machine with the serial to help me out in getting the exact year.

    Billy, I'm looking forward to seeing your machine all cleaned up! It will be gorgeous!

    But have no fear Billy is wise and Billy is good!! And I like it over here in OUR shop better, there is always coffee and deserts and great quilters to hang out with. :-D

    I logged into the Needlebar website and discovered most of the site is not accessible, so I logged out and left.

    I did the same thing. If something shows up in google while researching, I then read it. And NB information sometimes shows up in a google search.

    I discovered, that if I use a link, and head off into the inside pages of Needlebar, don't try to post, don't try to respond, just look... and don't go back to the HOME page... I can navagate around all I want. I have signed up, but haven't got past the intro stage yet that I know of. I posted my intro... but who knows. I need the info now. And I don't care if I post or not on NB. Billy, if ever you need any 'help' with an... er... ehem similar VMS website ... I would be willing to help admin. ;)

    That is awesome. I love this sort of thing. I wish I could find a few sewing machines in 'the swale' to fix up and pass on.
    When the garage sales start up again, look for them there.

With help of some on this site, I was able to find out that it was NOT a vintage/old machine, it was of new manufacture. The lady was also billing her FW as antique.... but I wasn't buying it. I emailed her back and without accusing her of anything, informed her that her one machine at least was a copy or new manufacture and was not a vintage Singer at all. I didn't hear back from her. Last week, she posted the same ad again, the same pictures of the machines, again as antique/vintage. So be careful, be wise and educated! That's why I LOVE this site!
    I have seen numerous times in my wanderings on Cl of people selling these machines and calling them vintage. Nothing new here.
    And yes be careful. I have even seen the same picture of a machine posted across the nation. And sometimes it is one week here and the next week somewhere else. I called on one machine once ( not a machine often seen), only to be told in a Maryland accent (and I know a Maryland accent because I grew up there) that he couldn't make time this weekend, didn't think the machine worked, why do I want it, and it would look great sitting on a shelf and then laughed. That call made me very uncomfortable.
    So yes, be careful. There are jerks out there too.

    Several things you should know about the NeedleBar.

    1/ It is not about sewing.

    2/ The NeedleBar is privately owned. The owner is me. I allow free access for fellow collectors but it is not free for me. I pay all the webhosting and bandwidth fees. Consequently you have no rights here. All decisions are mine and mine alone.

    3/ As very, very, VERY clearly stated in my rules, the NeedleBar is non-commercial. Your chosen username is the name of your online business. Your so-called "avatar" is a logo related to your online business.

    4/ As very, very, VERY clearly stated in my rules, the NeedleBar is non-commercial. You will not place a commercial website link in your profile or anywhere else on my site. If you do it once more I will deactivate your membership.

    5/ If people don't read and abide by my simple and few rules, it is unlikely I will read and react to any stuff posted by them.

    6/ I have cut you a lot of slack on my forums leaving your overlarge posts intact, but your current antics trying to advertise your commercial web site here have used up all my goodwill.

    Back off and enjoy what access you have to my forums or leave. Simple as that. This is not negotiable.

    This is the end of this conversation and this topic is now locked.

    Back to sewing machine history and collecting.

    Alan

    Wow..no control issues here! Rule number one made me LOL. What does he think people do with them?
    The sewing is an integral part of the machine history. You just can't separate them.
