    thanks to the Wonderful TOGA party hosted by Mizkaki, I am now up by two machines. One is a gift so I will not post photos until after it is given.. the other is a Necchi BC.

    It was VERY VERY stiff, but some dissasembly, LOTS of Oil then Triflow, and about an hour of coaxing and viola! a sewing Necchi at a SILLY price. (More $$$ in Gas to get to Sac than i paid for BOTH machines...)

    Oh I would be restoring the Howe machine in a heartbeat! If I had seen that I would so have been in a bidding war with you!!!

    I'm paying for my latest 2 machines though so I need to hold off. I got a Singer 24 chain stitch treadle and a Singer 29.

    Great looking 15 and Necchi! But, I am drooling over the Howe!

    yeah, it's bad when you think "Christmas is cool and all, but I cannot wait until my "new" machine gets here..."

    Ok. Here are my machines. Don't mind the mess. It was Christmas Eve, lots going on. The Ugly Duckling... I put a lot of time into it getting it working. I'm looking for a hand crank machine for my daughter. IThe 306w takes standard needles, someone must have modified it.

    The White Dressmaster Rotary; working very well and it is like new.

    And the Berlin Beast (Aka Ulf). Very sensitive to tension adjustments. I really have to be patient dialing it in after changing to a different thread. It's set up for V69 thread and there it is going to stay. But once dialed in, it cooks right along.
