    Patrice You are one crazy woman. You must have knees like mine.And ankles(broken) and an arthritic hip. If I could I would get an entire left side replacement. But with my luck , Doc would do the wrong side.

    Nobody reproduces the decals for these machines only the FW's. I have some that I have made that I use on my repaints I can check and see what I have and post them.

    There is a guy that sells on Ebay and there are two types of decals he offers. The self sticky kind or the water slide. I use the water slide for my repaints.

    I wish we could get these. After repainting them because they are in really bad shape it would be awesome to be able to finish dressing them up!

    I used to sell them until my repaints started taking off. I have to make some more this week so I might list a few so you guys can get them.

    Just out of curiosity, if it isn't a proprietary secret, how do you make the decals? I would have thought that only Singer could make them.

    I do them on a $13,000 vector printer and when I repaint the machines I never do it in a factory color and leave the badge off of the machine. That way I am covered and thats what the sewing companies use to do when the "Sewing Machine Wars" were going on and set all of the modern day patent laws.

    There is nobody out there making the decals for the Singers other than the FW's. If your lucky you might find a set of decals from a factory refurbishing dealer but they are not the factory decals. They will be an authorized replacement decal that they used for refurbishing the Singer machines. But they stopped making the decals in the late 40's and it is almost impossible to find them. I have had some but as usual somebody wanted them worse than I did and they helped fill my bank account to get them. I got mine from a old sewing machine shop buyout I did.
