    Oh, want to know what it cost me???? I got it home in my carryon luggage so no shipping cost. Just had to leave the dress from the wedding at my Mom's. So so far I'm out $8.99 plus tax. I think she will jump to the head of the cleaning line. I have a treadle cabinet from my other Davis so that is where she will go. I will post some pictures next week when I am back home.
    Quiltaddict, I am on the hunt for a Davis VF1, and have a bid on one. Cross your fingers for me...hope I get it. It looks rough, but I love the profile on these beauties!! Congratulations on your VF2...very exciting!! And a great price to boot!! Wow!!

    those links are VERY helpful. I'm thinking that one is from somebody on here - don't know who.

    Charlee, you are too kind....

    I have a question about power supplies.

    My 15 did not come with a foot pedal or.... can I use the power supply and foot pedal from one of my other machines..i.e. 301, 221, 191?????

    I do not want to treadle it.. :)

    you can re-wire it up any way you like - motor and foot control.

    15-91 can't be treadled, so you're safe there! ;)

    You can use the power cords from your other machines if they fit...I have a foot pedal and plug, but they'd need to be rewired...pretty nasty, they are!

    Are you talking about the treadle wheel? If you are missing the pitman, the skirt guard, and the treadle wheel, I think you just need to find an old treadle base! Then between the two of them, put together a complete treadle!

    Nancy, I have the skirt guard, I need the bolts to bolt it to the irons as well as the treadle wheel. Kathie

    According to this board I have the 66 and 2-that are 127.
    I have gotten both 127's working, but the 66 isn't picking up the bobbin and I don't have instructions for it.

    check out my tutorial on skipped stitches. There is a video on there for timing. BUT don't fool with the timing until you tried everything else. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-147275-1.htm

    Unfortunately, some of these grand ladies have not been treated as well. Note that some have been found in barns and on porches.

    That is cute! I recently put hand cranks on two older Singers - I didn't realize how fast they could go! People always wonder about guiding the material (I wondered myself) but it really wasn't a problem. Was it hard putting the hand crank on a machine without a spoke wheel?
