    Do you now anything about this machine?? Thank you for your help.
    I certainly treasure "her" !!! Kay

    Would LOVE to see pics of her! What a neat treasure and story to go with it...have you written that down to put in her case yet?
    I like the story too.
    Nice story but I would like to see a pic of this

    Janice, you might also want to join the Yahoo group for the Davis machines...they have a lot of files and information there! :) There are also step by step photos of how to disassemble and reassemble the machine's faceplate where all the action is!

    (My machine, on that page, is the New High Arm Vertical Feed, almost halfway down the page)

    Spray paint from WM with my luck would rub off on a quilt - U R right, I should probably get her done up right so she doesn't soil anything - maybe DH would let her in the house - not that he would have THAT much say. I kind of like the old girl. She is waiting for a bobbin case I ordered.

    Does anybody know if you can FM with one of those? She sure turns fast. Then with the motor going you can't even see the needle. Maybe she should be painted up to look like a low sleek race car?

    HHHMMMM Purple with a red hat. I bet she needs a few flowers. She is butt ugly like she is don't you think?

    Haid & Neu was a German company that was bought out by Singer - I think in the 50's. I have not been able to find out much more about the company. The machine I have seen by H&N is a treadle from the late 40's or early 50's.

    http://website.lineone.net/~lindave/other2.htm
    This site has some other machines by Haid & Neu - part way down the page, the company is mentioned in the description of the machines as having made the machines for other labels. There is also a blurb about the company.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/xcbiker/543898564/
    This is someone's photo of an H&N. Are you going to post a pic of yours? We would love to see it.

    Thanks, Charlee...I'll join that group. I'm going to need bobbins and maybe a shuttle...don't know yet what I'm going to find in the attachments bag. He didn't show pics of those.

    Aww, she's not so bad in the pictures. Screaming red is good, with chrome. Kind of makes me think of some sort of 40s deco bullet train.

    I'm a member of this too!

    I haven't gotten around to submitting my tutes on the attachments for the Davis NVF. I don't think they will like the one where I use duck tape to hold down the one attachment; so, I will need to retake that one first before submitting.

    But until I get around to submissions, if anyone needs to see how some of the attachments work, just look through my blog. I still prefer using the Singer attachments.

    If you don't have the boat shuttle call up Cathy. Never know what is in one of her lockers; they are like an endless pit.

    I don't think she is ugly at all, matter of fact, just more down to earth and no-nonsense. I bet it sews like it means it, and that counts more than looks to me. She might be pretty another color, but her lines are quite impressive to me the color she is.

    Melinda, I agree with you, stunning lines. Forget the paint job.

    That table is WONDERFUL!!!! It is really a good one. The machine is butt ugly - I haven't gotten her to sew yet. I'm waiting on a bobbin shuttle. Her motor is in great shape too.
