    I am going through my Excel file and realizing that I need to do some more updating of information on my ZZ machines.

    take your time Caroline - it took me six months to just take pics whether the machines work or not. I have a hard time taking pictures of machines that don't work and showing them off...

    Hard to do Miriam. I am a bit OCD/ADD, that is why I am up so early this morning.

    Dressmaker Model 295

    There is not a JA number on this machine. Lightly embossed on the casting underneath is a Large "V" with a smaller "T" it.

    The elegant engineering of this machine amazes me.

    I have a plan now. It is being completely "rebuilt" (down to bare iron, then paint) then, inspired by another persons "display setup", I plan to build a tall base with viewports and on the right side set up an internal 1" to 1-1/2" pulley and standard singer belt, with an external 3" diameter hand crank wheel (removable of course)

    This should make it operate similar to a hand crank singer ratio wise. Add a cover and poof! a portable Early Howe that can be used.

    Steve,

    Since I have no idea what a Howe looks like, how about a pic of the top?

    Steve if you start a Howe thread, be sure to put all your current photos on that board - we want from start to finish. That machine will be stunning when it is completely done! What a fun and rewarding thing to do with a machine like that Howe - to restore it to its original glory!
