    from Crys at Needlebar regarding my G&B Lockstitch
    "I don't know what needle this model uses but G&B used 3 kinds of non-curved needles. So one of them should work in your machine. There is a flat shank needle known as the G&B 19. It is just about impossible to find and I don't know of any equivalents. It is 1 7/8 inches long and the flat part of the shank is very small. i.e. it's shankless. It's not much bigger than the shaft of the needle.

    G&B also used 2 kinds of round shank needles. One is the 13x1 and the other is the 2x1. For the 2x1 you should be able to use LAx361."

    I have put in a Boye #2 and it works great.

    also, based on this serial number DB
    http://fiddlebase.jimdo.com/american...-grover-baker/
    (the webmaster says it was pulled from the digital copy of grace coopers book on the Smithsonian site)

    mine which is serial number 340205 dates to 1871.

    long groove away from shuttle, thread left to right (that is what I am doing, I have no manual either)

    These wacky machines have something that I have NEVER seen on a VS or TS machine... The curved slide track for the shuttle is a bolt-in arrangement that is "adjustable" yikes....

    Yes Steve I did pay attention to the adjustable slide track arrangement. Yikes is right. I hope I never have to adjust that thing. Thanks for the info.

    Skip, you have one of those lovely ladies as well?? It's a beauty..... keep us posted on her progress. She looks pretty great right now but I know you'll put the magic touch on her.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Hello, I have a Pfaff Treadle machine. The serial number tells us that the machine was made ​​in 1902 (http://www.ismacs.net/pfaff/pfaff_ma...ure_dates.html).
    But I don't understand what model is this? And how much is this sewing machine?

    I am starting work on a Free Westinghouse that was in a cabinet. It has the strangest knee controller I have seen. Before yesterday, I had not even seen a picture of this one.

    Singer 15-91

    DH did his normal "take apart, clean and put back together"routine. The machine has been rewired, the light housing was cracked and DH epoxied it back together (picture shows crack better than in real life). Foot pedal and cord are dirty, but sound- and genuine Singer.

    Serial number AH672621, makes it a 1948 vintage.












    This has a motor, housing and assembly off a 201, so the decal is different. The one on this machine was in much worse shape. DH had the motor all apart and had to scrub and scrub to get all the old grease and crud out of it.

    This machine has too much wear for me to consider it in the "collector" category, but it should make a fine using machine. I'm going to sew on it for a while this weekend to make sure.

    This one may already be spoken for, though we have another 15-91 out in the shed. My goal is to have all the machines OUT of the shed before the snow flies.
