    OK, where's the thumb drive? ................ AhA! There it is.

    Singer 9W-7 Treadle #5


    Treadle 3 is the Franklin and treadle 4 is another 9W-7 but the cabinet is still in pieces.
    Treadle 6 is a Singer Red eye 66-1 with the original back clamp feet but it doesn't have a cabinet yet.

    Joe,

    It is great to see your machines. I love both of them. I learned to sew on a 66-18 and just seeing one makes me smile. Your treadle (the Franklin in the parlor cabinet) is especially nice.

    Judy

    PS: Oops - I see now that you have posted more pictures.

    Wow, I am really turning green now! My older viking needs to go to the dr. so I got my singer 15-90 out to finish some tops. It was my MIL's and I recently had it checked out and the wiring replaced. I LOVE IT! My DH says he remembers his mom really making it hum.

    How about one more for the road?

    This is my FREE SEWING MACHINE CO. machine. One the arm it's marked: The FREE and under that LONG BOBBIN ROTARY. She was made in Rockford, ILL way back when .... the USA really had a heart.

    Here she is with her bent wood case and accessories.

    Here she is in action piecing a quilt part.


    I have a complete set of accessory feet for her, but no button holler. Unlike other top clamp machines you can't unscrew the clamp on this one to clamp the button holler to the presser foot shaft. You have to have a button holler with the two forks like the feet.
    I have one for a New Home, but it won't fit.

    It is the quietest VS machine I own. Very little vibration and noise. Maybe cos it weighs so much.

    Some one once asked me: "How can it be a LONG BOBBIN ROTARY? The two are mutually exclusive. I can't answer that question. Can anyone here?

    Joe, the capital A four spaces to the left of the tree changes colors. Then there is the B for Bold, the I for Italics, the U for Underline and of course, you can change the size and font. Lots of fun when you get bored.

    I like your parlor cabinet and the Redeye. That'd be my combo. Your Free is a pretty machine, too.

    No sun here today. My carport flooded, then froze, so getting out is going to interesting. We have snow (no surprise) and expected 30 mph winds.

    Things like frozen carports, snow, freezing wind is making me want to head back to Arizona.

    LOL, it amazes me just how often they seem to get into the pics. They are not camera shy, that's for sure.

    I am still following your "moving" thoughts, J Miller. Loved your pics of machines, kitties, etc. I keep hoping you'll give Middle Tennessee some thought--it gets COLD here, but not for long. It gets HOT here, but the lake is nearby, so it isn't so bad, and lasts from April or May through about November.
    Make every day count for something!

    OK, Joe. Guess you didn't hear that we had snow, sleet, hail and freezing rain in "the valley' yesterday. Tucson airport was closed and a gold tournament in Marana was cancelled.

    The really bad news is that, if you live east of Arizona, it's coming your way.

    Yep, I heard. Members on other forums as well as on my wife's Face Book have been posting pictures. It doesn't bother me one bit.
    Matter of fact it just makes living in AZ a bit more interesting.
