Hi arctic (Miriam has started something), I see why pages have been returned multiple times. A page with the word is listed with every other tag you've had on the page with it. E.g.
www.archaicarcane.com/tag/403a/, www.archaicarcane.com/tag/slantomatic/ and www.archaicarcane.com/tag/tips/
(not the only three times it comes up). So you don't get your statistics right, but you'll easily find the right articles

That's what I was mentioning about tags. Tags, categories all of it would "clutter" up the results, but at least they're relevant.

Tried your tip Mike to locate a resource for Domestic serial numbers. It worked great but no resources that I could see on the QB. Thanks for the tip though.


Does anyone have a resource for these serial numbers?

OK, computer geeks .... just teasing ..... I have been all over the files I have, Google, and I still need a source for parts such as bobbin hook parts, screws, and other small darn near impossible to find pieces.

Not doing so great as your "code lines" are like reading trigonometry to me. 1+1=2 is my speed, past that and I'm losted.

If you're looking for a "supplier", sewingpartsonline has a lot of stuff listed, more than Jenny does. Though be warned, their listing are not always correct, so use your judgement.

If you're looking for part numbers, as far as the Singer machines, the parts charts I sent you should manage a lot of it (for those who don't have the charts, here are the charts I sent to Joe and more: http://www.brewersewing.com/BQSS_Consumer/b2bsewing.asp)...

The rest comes down to developing your Google-Foo. No real other way around it unfortunately.

I've pretty much been able to find any part I've needed on ebay or Bonanza...even hard-to-find, obscure parts. If they're not listed today, it seems that they will be within a couple weeks.

Up until a couple years ago, there was a great old Singer shop near here. It had been in business for over 50 years & he repaired all brands.They had any part for any brand of machine that you could imagine....& a huge room full of parts machines. I'd bring tools & he'd just turn me loose in the place! He never charged over $1-$2 a part. Well, he retired & a lady nearby bought out the shop. Prices are WAY up & she didn't keep much that wasn't Singer.

for fun

Go to the EBay Germany site and use this search term "Antike Nähmaschine" (antique sewing machine)

WOW!!! The machines that are hiding over there.... Need a "boat trip" for all of the ones I'd want!!!

I don't have any tips at the moment, at least none that haven't already been mentioned...I'll have to think about this one. But, I really want to thank everyone for getting this sticky started. Great idea!

I was trying to find tip and tricks but for people trying to polish rusted "chrome" parts this might help http://www.robertscycle.com/chrome-clean.html
I will be trying this on some feet I acquired.
