    This is my first attempt at attaching pictures and I really wanted to put it into the Vintage Section but can't figure that out.
    The first picture is my treadle that I acquired in 1983 or '84.

    Thank you spartan, I'm going to try to use Billy's tutorial to clean the Sphinx up, have ordered the missing bobbin cover and will start soon. Lots of work before I do the "after" pix.

    This is another of my lovelies.

    Since nobody else posted it, here is the link for you to add your pics to the 'Vintage' area. To get there without the link, go to 'home' at the top of this page, then at the bottom you will find 'vintage sewing machine shop'. That's where this is

    I posted this to the Virtual forum for you for more views. The one that you show as a 128 is really a 99. The other one with the Blackside finish is a 128. Either way that is a nice grouping of machines!

    Thank you everyone. Have fallen in love with the older machines, might be my age!, and they all work. I also have my mom's little Elna that I sewed on til I left home and got my own machine. Should probably add the picture of that on here too.

    Found a great source, Stitches in Time. They are in Lake City, MN, [email protected] and Cindy was so very helpful. Good luck.
