Really nice details. It always amazes me how intricate things were made back when there wasn't all the technology. A good find.

Have a treadle my grandfather traded a shotgun for in 1917. It needs much work, but I have all the attachments, etc.

Here is what that site says

"To alter the stitch length on the 15K machine, first loosen the screw then move upwards to increase or downwards to decrease; except on the 15K26 model when it operates in the opposite way."

Since I was out in the Shed looking for something else, I checked, and my IF, 15-1 and two of my 15-30's operate by moving it UP to decrease stitch length and DOWN to increase stitch length. I have at least two more 15-30's but did not check them.

Now we need someone with a 15K30 to check and let us know if there machine does operate the other direction.

Got to thinking I have that 15 RAF machine, so I checked it, and it's opposite from all my earlier 15-30 machines.

It's an AD machine, so US made, but mid 30's, so one of the last of the 15-30's before the 15-91 came out.

So it's possible the change in stitch length mechanism is a Date issue and not a Model issue.

Gorgeous machine, if you were going to get one at that price it is perfect! Lucky you. Ours here are a lot higher than that and none so pretty. Glad you got it.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments and all the help. It is a beauty and I was amazed to find one that price. Most machines here in LA, CA are so much more expensive and not nearly as nice. I waited to find one that was VERY nice. I have read some of the comments to my hubby, cause he was worried that it would be a problem (he remembers the debacle that I went thru getting my 301, but thru persistence I finally got it). It is always so nice to confirm that it is all I thought it was.

And I have learned a lot by having it. I learned how to resize pics and post them. I told my niece about my machine and she asked for a quilt. Purple and hunter green. Got most of my fabric - need one more piece. Can't wait to get started on it.
