Default I feel good/bad/good about yesterday's Singer 15-91 experience

The good: A repaired 15-91 went to my sister as she wanted a machine 'like Mom had'.

The bad: I had to snitch the long spring from a bobbin winder from one 15-91 machine to another yesterday. I feel bad taking parts from one as I'd rather fix them all. :9

More good: I did a test sew using a blue jean cut off hem, folded it in half and sewed through all 16 thicknesses including the hems. It sewed just like a butter knife going through soft butter.

Yep, the good news it is fixed and now you will have to be on the look out for a replacement spring for the other machine.

Yes, I saw that SC has the one I need (the long spring). I was working on a 1952 model and snitched a part from a 1933 model - the parts were identical.

The neatest thing about this whole thing is my Mom's machine was commissioned in 1952 and the one I found for my sis is also from 1952. Oh, and this cabinet is identical to my Mom's.

One of my other sister's has my Mom's machine - hopefully now everyone is happy.

God Bless you, you have a great heart and your sister is lucky to have you and keep up the good work.

Oh!! I'm so glad to hear that about the 15. I'm searching for one and think I have one spotted....... I need it for sewing the heavy stuff. Sounds like I'm headed in the right direction.

It's really special to have the machine like mom's or to have mom's...... your sisters are fortunate that you've got their backs.
