    Thank you for sharing the pics. I'm sure this is a stupid question, but do all of them sew? I would imagine they do..
    And do you have a favorite as far as the sewing goes?

    I would too. The aluminium 201K is lighter than a cast iron 99K

    Yes they do, All of the machines in my collection sew (or else!) my favorite is the one in the upper left. The Jones Serpentine. I do a LOT of sewing on that one.

    I have a Singer 201K hand crank and love it. It is heavy, but worth it. I also have a 201K aluminum hand crank. I take that one to retreats, because it is a little lighter. I bought a black case for it on ebay. I put it on a wheeled luggage carrier, and I'm good to go. I wouldn't give up my 201 hand cranks for anything.

    Post 1900 handcrank

    I picked up a hand crank from a 1900 unit. It came from England and had the balance wheel included. I paid $105 w/shipping included and was glad to add it to the collection. I also purchased the Chinese knockoff for a machine I sold for use in the field during re-enactments. The quality difference is amazing, yet the knockoff worked for the intendented application. I think the OEM unit makes 4 stitches per revolution. That way, for the purist, one will know how many stitches a given project takes

    Now I'll wait until DH reads this and see what he says LOL!!
    Cathy - if you make it to Atlanta let me know! We are moving here (here now doing things on house). Plan to be here permanently in a few months. We will have a guest room. And my machines are already here at the son's house. I know you don't know me well but I think I am as normal as any vintage sewing machine collector!!

    Haid and neu help

    I have acquired a haid and neu crank made in 1943. I am not sure the placement of the spring on the top tension knob is correct. I wondered if you are able to guide me?

    I have rarely ( never?) seen a
    haid and neu on this board. But it you give us a closer view of the tension assembly we may be able to help.
    My greatest fear is all of my family standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" he was.
