    This machine is my latest Youtube star. I have used it for the latest video - How to Adjust the Tension on a Vintage Long Bobbin Sewing Machine - on the Muvandfarve channel.

    I'm already in love with this machine. We don't tend to get Singers with red decals here - Red Eyes are American - and the Indian Star makes it extra special.
    Such a gorgeous sewing machine!! I watched and enjoyed your YouTube video. I am also going to watch your other videos. You have such a nice way of explaining what you are showing....and I LOVE your accent :mrgreen: --so pretty!

    It dawned on me that I hadn't put a picture of "Fannie" here yet...
    She's a 1934 White Number 8, with a vibrating shuttle. Evidently they only made these models for a year or two, so they aren't a common machine. Side clamp attachments, and the bobbin winder has a separate belt. The machine runs on a friction wheel attached to the motor, then you attach the belt to wind the bobbin.

She sewed on it every day for almost fifty years. I was so delighted when she gave me her machine! It has several embroidery stitches.

    The second is my Singer Featherweight, affectionally named Miss Anise. I bought her at an estate sale and she's the loveliest little machine ever. Cute as a button and sews a beautiful stitch.
    I got my singer red eye 66 1921 G9073022.Her name is Bertha,thats where I got her.

    My SIL mother passed away several months ago and she gave me her two machines, this one, 1920 Minnesota A (Sears knockoff), and a 15-91. I have been using Billy's tute and practicing dismantling and cleaning the Minnesota A. It is just like Charlee's machine in that the bobbin winder has a separate belt. The machine runs on a friction wheel attached to the motor, then you attach the belt to wind the bobbin. It appears to have been a treadle that was retrofitted with a Kenmore motor, sort of jury-rigged. But it has been a fun learning experience and now I am ready to tackle the 15-91.

    I'm having the devil's own time learning to use a treadle with a boat shuttle, so I've been keeping my eye out for a likely non-shuttle candidate, and finally found one on CL. We went to pick it up this weekend, and I've since spent the last few days cleaning 90 years of grime off the head, and 90 years of polish and wax off the table. Cosmetically they've both seen better days, but I'm *amazed* at how quiet it is! Now I'm just waiting for the bobbin slide plate and treadle belt to get here, so I can start using it!

    Now she just needs a name!

    She looks AMAZING!!!!!! Which products did you use for machine and also for the table. I'm getting ready to do a treadle table, too.

    Check out this video, by Treadle Lady:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/TreadleL.../6/Fi8a_OHUv1M

    In the video she shows how to set up that same model sewing machine and she also explains how to get the bobbin slide plate back on. She says that a lot of model 66's come with a missing bobbin plate because people can't figure out the right way to get them back on.

    She also has a couple of video showing how to fill a long bobbin and how to insert the shuttle into a machine.
