    Wow! Awesome 66 Red Eye! The decals are in amazing shape! I have one (see my avatar) with Lotus decals. It's my favorite of all my old machines and the one I piece my quilt tops on. These are really fine machines and will last forever with a little love. They make a soothing sound while sewing, and form beautiful, perfect stitches. Be sure to use yours! Every time I sit down at mine to sew, I can't help but say, "I love this machine!".

    Know a man who has one of these. He worked for the US Forest service. For the past 30 years it has been used to repaire everything from parashuts to horse tack. He has retired and his wife says it still sews's a good seam. I'd say its a true work horse.

    It looks similar to mine that I took today to get cleaned and fixed so I can sew on it again. I am so excited.

    What did you clean it with to make it shine? I have my grandmothers treadle and it has a dull, dull look but lots of painting and I didn't want to hurt the paint.

    I have the same Red Eye in excellent condition, but mine is not a treadle. Date on mine is 1914 and it has the original motor.
    Does yours clamp the feet on from the back? Mine does.
    I am also thinking that IF AND WHEN I ever get a treadle cabinet for it, I will be able to just put the treadle belt from the wheel down onto the base wheel for the treadle and not plug in the motor.
    I paid $150 for mine plus shipping from Calgary, Canada.
    I LOVE HER! I have named her Canadian Rose. She purrs like a kitten and sews like a charm.
    I hope that you have many years of happy sewing/quilting on your new baby! I know I will on mine.
    I have two other vintage machines (FW and WHITE) and they are both idle at the moment since Canadian Rose has stolen the scene. I have her in a table top with folding legs. She fits in the same inset as the WHITE.
    The table top was made by my husband to sit on top of the original table which fits for the FW and had been my MIL's. Don't know where the machine went though. I think it was traded in for the WHITE in the 50s.
    GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY SEWING!

    I have the same machine I love it she is a dream to sew with the old ones are much easier to use and to maintain even if she has to go out for repairs its pennys on the dollar compared to the newer machines they have fewer moving parts and you don't need a degree in nuke science to operate her :thumbup:
