    Spyder Tutorial link

Would be nice to have pictures from other Standard Sewing Machine owners of their bobbin race, spider (if they have one), bobbin case and bobbins along with what year their machines were made. I sure didn't know the other machines mentioned would do a chain stitch. Very interesting!

    I had been looking for the vintage Standard sewing machine and had the privilege of meeting some wonderful friends who gave me this link to the Spyder Tutorial here:

    I hope this will also help those who may need it.

    Thank You! This is an awesome link! She did an excellent job showing the difference between the Stout and the Slim, and how to thread the machine.

    Also in her files are a couple of Manuals, one for the Two Spools.

    Thanks for sharing this link!

    Hi beautiful people, I have a 1887 Standard (slim). My bobbin case is older, it does not have a little handle like the one posted by vintagemotif, but it is plain and flat with two cut out holes at the side for grasping (I think). I have a spider too as well as the chain stitch needle plate. I just don't understand why the stitches shred on the underside when I try to do the chain stitch with the spider... Any suggestions?

    I have a Standard (patented 1887) slim, but the bobbin case looks different. There is no tab on my bobbin case, just two cut out holes to pluck it out. I understand that there were variations to the Standard rotary machines, the 'newer' ones can do the chain stitch (with the right needle plates) pretty well. Mine is still shredding the threads in chain stitch mode.....still trying to figure out what went wrong. Oh but the lock stitch is just beautiful. I don't have the treadle base, so I am trying to put it on a normal Singer treadle base to see if I can still operate the machine with the right hinge holes (modified) on the table. Wish me luck!

    Usually if there is thread shredding there is a burr some place. Trace the thread path, including the needle and look/feel for burrs.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    needlebar.org has a really good page about stouts/slims

    you need a slim spider and a chain-needle plate to chainstitch

    there is also a "lock" needle plate neededto lock stitch

    HiDesertQuilter,

    Your attachments, especially the spider, are for a Standard Stout. Identifying feature is the hollow pin on the spider.

    I think the above survey, a summary of results document, from over at Needlebar.org, gives you exactly what you asked for.

    Wow! My machine is older than the oldest in the survey. Serial number 58676. No spider for her obviously. Glad I happened to get back to this conversation. Thanks everyone.
