Billy has a wonderful tute on cleaning this machine (and others) on page 46 in the virtual machine shop here.

Woot Woot is right!! My first vintage machine was a red eye.

I have to warn you, though, once you get your first vintage/antique sewing machine you won't be able to stop at just one. I don't want to 'enable' you in any way :wink: but you should see all of the gorgeous vintage machines out there with all sorts of decal patterns on them!

You could try putting a hand crank on this particular machine, until you get new cords for it, your granddaughter will love to sew with it and she can go at her own speed.

What a beautiful machine, I did a search for the finger guard and found this site: http://www.universalsewing.com/tek9....criteria=520.1 Hope it has what you are looking for as your DGDs will be so lucky to be allowed to sew with that machine :thumbup:

I have always wanted a treadle machine. I remember my Aunt using one. When she would get tired she would let one of us kids work the treadle snd she would keep sewing. Is it a nostalgia thing? I finally bought one and I love it.

That is one gorgeous red-eye. Looks like it was loved and cared for. You are one lucky lady.

I got the link below from Billy so I could download a manual for a treadle that I just purchased. Hope it helps.
