    Why do we all want to get these machines? The love of the antique machines??? I'm not sure.
    I have been looking at a machine I can use with my DGDs, they are five.
    Does anyone have a "finger guard" they make for these?

    Thanks for any help with the guard! I'm hoping to find a treadle for it. I paid $95, I think I paid a fare price.

    Enjoy! I have been so busy with sewing, I'm hoping I can fit this into my life!!!

    It is electric, but I need a new plug in for this, it has not been updated.

    The decals are in pretty nice shape. The serial # G0594970, I don't know the age and I need a owners manual. And the man said to use a synthetic oil, with teflon?? what is that all about? I'm looking any info on the oiling also. It runs so smooth.

    Lovely... It's a Red EYE, tho, not a Red Line. See the red "eyes" all over it? LOL. You got a great machine!

    According to the Singer web site, its birthday was June 22, 1910 (provided I looked it up correctly!) . She is beautiful. You will really enjoy her!

    I have the same machine BD 6/10/1910...You can buy the grease and oil for her right at Joann's...I think it's put out by Singer. I also think you can find the manuels right online via the Singer Website...The manuel will tell you exactly where to put the grease and oil. Very easy to maintain...I cleaned and oiled mine...
    Also is a model 66...uses Classic 66 bobbins sold at Joann's (Metal) don't buy plastic bobbins.

    Jenny at sew-classic.com carries the finger guard you were asking about.

    I have the same. I thought we used singer oil?? I went online and copied the manual. Just cleaned mine up. Need to get a case and the thing by the wheel for bobbin is off. Don't know if u need if if ur not going to wind bobbins? Guess we will be figuring ous out together. I was gonna call mine Lucy for all the trouble she's kinda given me! My 15-91 is Ethel!! U could call your rose Marie!!

    I wound my bobbins on a stand alone bobbin winder.
    I use Arcopac Oil 90, which I use on my industrial machines.
    Just finished oiling it, rethreading, put in new thread in the bobbins.
    My machine is very clean and the decals are barely worn on the bottom.
    It came in that wonderful cabinet with a stool. I emailed Jenny at sew-classic.com for the parts I need.
    I actually love Lucy for a name, I don't know what I'm calling her.

    Billy has a wonderful tute on cleaning this machine (and others) on page 46 in the virtual machine shop here.
    I did mine and it turned out great!

    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.
