    Thanks!! As well as explaining my earlier question, it's another great site of data to add to my list!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    And they don't even mention any cams...well mine doesn't have any either but I paid only $5 and it sews anything I can throw at it. I need the ZZ plate for mine and I bet this one does too since they don't show the plate.

    So I guess a Centennial 128 blackside with crinkle finish would be hitting the trifecta? I have a 1942 model 99 crinkle blackside, but the faceplate is chrome.

    I thought these machines used those pain in the a$$ hard to find needles? The pictures just show regular needles.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    You can find those needles - sew classic has them and other places - buy 100 at a time in all the sizes you want for not too much.

    Did not know that. Thank you. Makes the neighbor's machine much more attractive although she isn't ready to let it go just yet.

    You have to watch out for the Singer 306s people have re-timed. They take the same disks as the 319 without the top levers. They seem to be a good solid machine. I also have a Singer 206 - it just does zz but it is a good solid machine, too. Those all take the same needles. Organ and Schmetz make needles that size - shop a bargain - send a link out if you find a deal.

    I will send a link if I find a good one and I think she has a 319(K or W) now that I think about it as she's had it retimed once and it is out of time again. Bummer.

    Many people have tried to retime these machines to take a 15X1 instead of the required 206X13 needle which is shorter. If you use a 15X1 it will damage the bobbin case. Make sure you look at the bobbin case for any needle damage. You can replace the case but not cheap

    Glenn; thanks for that information. She's not selling it anytime soon and wants a bundle to boot cuz it was expensive when it was purchased.

    Those Singer 306, 206 and 319 can be put on a treadle - they will not hand crank. Bobbin cases are available through Sew-classic.

    1906 Singer Sewing Machine W/ Cabinet
    Good Condition
    Looking to trade for a KitchenAid Stand Mixer. It need not be new, just working and have the 3 most common attachments. (Whisk, Flat Beater, & Dough hook.)

    Nice. I wish I had a KitchenAid mixer.

    Hmmmmmm.....................I know machines are priced high around here, but I don't see a pedal or electric plug. What am I missing?

    Judy,

    Looks like most of the paint has peeled off of the front of the bed. Probably due to moisture and aluminum rot. I'd not call that "great condition".

    Is that duct tape? It's out in the boonies too.

    Absolutely everything about this machine screams "Singer" - the pedal, the tensioner, the look, placement of the controls, everything.,.. but it's a "Finesse"?
