    You can use a 193077 belt. That's what I put on mine.

    Awesome to know, Joe. Sorry it was "kidnapped" from you. haha

    I ended up getting a 196386 belt for it. That's what I was advised to do through 5 different sites.

    I think 193077 and 196386 are very close in size. I have a grab bag of new and used spare belts so when I get a machine that needs one I see what I have that fits then go from there.

    As long as you got a belt that gives you room to adjust the tension, it's good to go.

    Wow, wish I lived close enough to buy this one. Alas, it's a 2 day drive. The price is decent, too. Made about 1889!

    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.

    Oh no. It is not a bargain, but it is not unreasonable at all. Great machine. ZERO adjustments other than stitch length. There IS NO tension adjustments on those at all. And they are virtually silent.

    The company that produced them for W&G used to make clocks, so their sense of "tolerances" was much finer than any other maker of the the day. They set the quality standard.

    (P.S. This model was made from the 1870's until the late 1950's early 60's. Longest production run ever)

    Jim,
    No problem, I can tilt my head over. That's a nice little machine. Once it's all cleaned and oiled I'll be it sews up a storm.

    just picked up this cool Tradecard for Domestic Sewing machines.

    The cool part for me is that it is from my home town of Jamestown NY

    Amazing embroidery done on old machines. I've been playing with trying to do it, much more practice needed...
