    Did anyone on this site post pictures of their Singer collection in the past week? I printed them out but my ink cartridges were going bad and they came out very blurred. There were 13 different models with 8 on the first page and 5 on the second. The only reference I have is a copyright "mjm" on the bottom right of the second page. I can't remember where I saw them...another of those darned senior moments.

    I promised to post some pics of my old Seidel & Naumann before I attempt to clean it up, so here goes: It has a model number of 339 on it, but I can't find a serial number anywhere.

    Even if I can't get it going, I still think it has scope to look prettier than it does at the moment.

    Thanks Darcene - at the moment, the needle doesn't go up and down, so I would like to free that up, even if I can't get it to stitch well. At least its a project to work on - like I don't have anything else to do - LOL.

    I'm looking at two Singer treadle machines and the seller gave me the numbers off the front of the machine. Would there be anyway to find out what kind of treadles they are? And they both need belts is there a standard size belt for treadles?

    These 4 machines followed me home today. Paid $30 for the White, then the New Home and Kenmore were free. There Don't know the years, will have to do some checking. The White came with all kinds of attachments and a book. The original owner had received it as a wedding gift. When she could no longer sew, she gave it to the lady that I got it from. This lady loved the machine, but, has a new one so wanted this one to go to a good home. Now I have it.

    The Dearing is a treadle that just happened to follow me home too. The lady said to just take it and get it out of her house. She used it for the cat to sleep on. I couldn't believe that it was free, my favorite price. Not to look these up and find out what years they are. I feel so lucky.

    Edit: Went back to see if I could download, and found nothing to indicate it was possible. What should I be looking for?
    That is the Smithsonian Website and see if it is a PDF format or not, then if it is you can download it and reformat the page size and print it off. I have God knows how many manuals stored on my laptop that I have downloaded from there. I try to spend a day a week on the site downloading PDF files!!

    The belts are usually 72" and you cut to fit kind of thing but not all treadles are the same. Sometimes the handwheels will have a different diameter pulley and the belt will either be too long or too short if you use one treadle and just swap machines out in it.

    Ask me how I found that one out!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Pretty machine. :-D
    it looks like the motor is a 220 volt., if so then you need a voltage converter if you live in USA or Canada.
    Or just swap the motor out for one set up for 110v. Very simple to do and save the motor thats on it someone may need it in the UK.

    You also need to change out the light bulb too.

    I'm having trouble finding info on the 4 machines that followed me home today. Here is what I have:

    Dearing - 2963793

    New Home Double Duty - Model 532 Serial #15962

    White Rotary 77MG Serial #13455

    Kenmore Model - 1764180 Serial #91076877

    What I would like to find out is where I can get manuals for all but the White and what years they were made.

    I'll check in tomorrow when I get a chance. Will have to use my cell phone. We are heading to MN for the "Back to the '50's" car show. Have to get up at 5. You all have a great evening.

I want to play with my new machines. Waaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!! There, now I guess I'll stop crying. Anyone have a crying towel I can use?

    Okay due to the horrific pressure I have received :lol: I am going to show the machine that I picked up at the Thrift Store yesterday.

    This is the "Filigree" decal pattern.

    Crossstitcher,

    I bought a 301 from Ebay also! Mine is the shortbed. It just came in the mail today. I have hurt my back and can't play with it yet. :cry: It was my first sewing machine purchase from Ebay. I was nervous but it arrived in excellent condition. It only took 2 days to get here!

    Is that three 301 this week? I recieved mine today and after a little cleaning and oiling she is running like a dream. I even got the manual so I read through that and got the idea to try some free motion quilitng. I keep hearing how they are great for it. Well, did not work out so well. According to the manual, you just take the foot off, lower the fees dogs, adjust the stitch length and go for it. It does not say anythig about the thread tension. So I tried it and nope, nothing. I could with several tries pull up the bobbin thread, but after that, no stitches at all. not long one or short ones, nothing. I guess I need to get a free motion foot. But I have no idea. It stitches beutifully otherwise. Any ideas?
