    Now you have my attention?? I have never seen a machine like this before. Now I will have to be on the look out. I think I would like a machine like this one. Who knows. I come across a hoard of things that might call my name.

    This morning reminded me why I do this for fun and not for profit. It took me an hour and 5 tools to get the stitch length asssmbly to work today. So happy when it freed up.Name:  national two spool back Iris 2 .JPG

    My greatest fear is all of my family standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" he was.

    I use my two spool to piece with. Just fill the bobbin thread spool full and you can piece quilt blocks for ever. Lots of thread on the bobbin spool. I was lucky mine was clean and just needed a little oiling. Never had a problem with it.

    I saw a National Two Spool treadle at the local Salvation Army thrift store about 5 years ago, it was priced at $150 and missing the spool can. The machine and cabinet were in fair condition.

    Alas without the can it is just a showpiece.
