Hi ladies! I am new to this site as well, but have a question. I was just given a 1904 Standard Sewing machine with cabinet, and it is missing the trim on one of the fake drawers along the right hand side of the cabinet. Anyone have any ideas in how I may find someone to repair it, or locate a replacement part? I hope I am posting this in the correct spot!

Welcome! You can try Ebay for it. If you see someone selling either Standard parts of the right era or Standard treadle cabinet parts but not the right one, ask them. They may have it but not have it listed.
The other option I can think of is try finding a local woodworker or antique furniture restorer. They may be able to make a replacement.

That's wonderful! I just got a Standard treadle, a bit rusty to read the serial just yet and the treadle cabinet needs a little work on the finish, but it has a plethora of attachments in the drawers. I think it's the slim one from what I see online.

Now as for the needles, don't worry, they take regular household sewing machine needles that you can get at Joann's! Id love to set up a web page just for this machine, but if you have access to this blog you should be able to find an awful lot of information right here. These machines came with a variety of tensions and therefore a variety od ways to thread them up. Do a search on "Standard sewing machine" or "Standard Rotary machine" and see what pops up. If you run into trouble please feel free to contact me and I will do what I can to help you. I do have a manual I will share, but I'm just not sure how to get it to you. It is in PDF form and it is a conglomeration of several manuals that I put together and pretty well encompasses the different varieties out there. Sammie
Hello member(s) of this old thread! I am cleaning up my great grandmother's Rotary "Economy" (stout) and was highly amused by the introduction to the manual posted further down thread than this. Apparently I own the greatest machine ever made?! I would love if I could do chain stitch on I don't think the spider is in the attachments box so I'm probably out of luck there.
The big question on my mind is: can I get more bobbins somewhere? The attachments and machine all seem ok, other than a good bit of grease and lint balls on the workings, but the bobbin... it is rusted and pitted and just not what a bobbin should be. There's a reason I love Singers. You usually know what you're getting into with the bobbins.

Hopeful,
Anna H.

Welcome, Anna. There are some old 15 class bobbins that might work. There was a thread about them working at https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...s-t258216.html There was another one, too, but can't find it now.
