    I had the featherweight for 10 years before I used it, I had no idea it was so fantastic until I discovered this website about a year ago. Since then, I've discovered that I LOVE the old heavy metal machines that I can actually work on myself. I also have a 1970 Bernina Record 730, just haven't taken a photo yet. All of these work wonderfully and I use them all and am currently trying to sell the 2 year old machine that I don't love :mrgreen:
    I only paid $25 for the International, I can't figure out why the clones have no real value, but I guess it's all in a name.

    Charlee - Completely fabulous treadle. What is it like to use? I bet it's fun.
    The thread take up lever looks a bit unusual. On my Vesta on page 4 the take up lever is a large open hook - you can just about see it in the first photo.

    This is my pre-1900 Industrial machine. It was beyond saving the paint, so I got creative. We just LOVE the table. It has "wings" on left and back that extend the size for quilting. Still have to get the tensioner put back on so I can see if she will sew!!
    Don't know why the pictures are so small. Uploaded to WalMart and ordered disc and prints. Deleted before I posted, so had to copy from their site. Will try again when the disc arrives. Thanks for looking.

    Hopefully, the clones stay down in price so we can all get them! We will keep it a secret what great machines those clones are! Nice International, Singer 15 clone and FW!

    Singer 15K Treadle, Serial #Y2915529, July 28, 1925, Clydebank, Scotland.

    This is my first restoration project. I bought this 15K while living in France in the 80's and 90's, and used it at the time to set my modern machine on. I brought it back with me, and never thought of restoring, or using it, until I found you all.

    I got her last weekend at a thrift shop. She really needs a good cleaning and a little fix up. Singer model 7 born Aug. 11, 1925
