    Just butt the ends together, no overlapping. Overlapping would make the belt too thick for the grove. Let us know how it goes when you start treadling!

    I pulled a dusty Kenmore 1218 out of storage, and last night I found it a nice home.

    It was a well behaved machine that stitched nicely. Recently I saw an older Kenmore here on QB that was a Turquoise blue that I just loved. It is probably a good thing it wasn't as pretty as that blue one. I would have wanted to keep it too.

    WOW! It is a twin! Miriam, Do you have a digital manual for that machine? The upper thread guide threading threw me a little. Also, why are there two spool pins?

    Grant, I think you can see on Miriam's where the spool pin is just missing. Nice machines!

    Steve you are a brave soul! Those two machines are going to be something to be proud of when you are finished - what a great piece of history to restore!

    I do not have a manual. I found a generic manual to go with it. I would not know why it would have 2 spool pins unless you were going to wind a bobbin while you sew with the other.
