    So here it is in all it's glory! I think I will have to name her Bonnie as that is one of the auctioneers that encouraged me to keep bidding LOL

    I think you might be able to tell what the cabinet problem is...why did someone "antique" this vintage and now antique, or close to being antique, cabinet green? I am a lover of green but not over a lovely oak cabinet.
    They used to paint everything. My parents had a lot of nice wood furniture that had the most unappealing paint applied to them.

    I remember the green "antiquing"paint they used in the 1970s. UGH!!! The White rotary is one of my favorite treadles.

    Just brought home my 3rd Singer 301A. However, this one is a beautiful black machine. The case came with it; no icky smells; only a little wear and tear show on it. A bonus of some great attachments. The machine is clean and runs really well. Am I blessed or what?

    Your 301 is very pretty and the case is just like mine minus the mysterious red stain that I have on my case

    My SMALLEST and rarest bit yet...

    This is a Willcox & Gibbs Gatherer attachment. This fits on the end of hte standard foot to make it a gatherer. My 1870's W&G has it's original manual and a complete attachment set MINUS this (until now)

    Steve, Can you show a picture of it attached to the foot? Without trying to make a joke, is it like a boot for the foot, where this goes on the front leading edge?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new around here, and stumbled upon this board/thread through various other websites, while trying to do some research on a machine I just bought off ebay. It caught my eye instantly, and the fact that it was made in Japan and all metal encouraged me to buy it. However, when it arrived, the stitch length dial was not working and I'll need to have it serviced. Being the DIY girl that I am, I wanted to see if I could figure out the problem myself, but I can't for the life of me find a manual for this machine. That's when I found out about "badged" machines from Japan. I was wondering if anyone could help me ID this machine to see what it was modeled after. It's an Emdeko Mark IV...
