    All these machines were one family so couldn't brake the family apart.

    You have a good heart....not everyone would have cared enough to keep this family together through hard times...they could have been split up and sent to different homes never to see one another again (cue sad violin music now)....

    If you look at that ruffler that Darcene posted, the way to attach it to the machine is at the back of the attachment, two prongs that slide up around a screw located at the back of the shank instead of on the side like most machines... :)

    Cross stitcher I love it that you saved a whole family of machines! Where are you intending to put them all???

    Billy, guess what, I found a UK supplier of Liquid Gold polish (pourable), so I have one on its way to me. Yeah!

    Thanks Billy, I will be able to give my old Seidel & Naumann a polish when it gets here. It's so frustrating not to be able to get all the stuff you have access to in the USA. Perhaps you should go into the supply business with a cleaning kit we could all purchase! LOL.

    It is a Singer Teach and Sew, # AP 627028. It purrs like a kitten too!!
    Looks like you hit the jackpot with this machine. I hope you enjoy using it. All those attachments! Wow!

    I do not know what to say about the difference between 'old' and 'vintage'. Maybe Charlee or Billy could give us a definition.

    As to finding out the age of a particular machine, there are charts available for some machines on the internet. Singer has an extensive website. And there are others... Other board members have more info than I.

    Old? After 1980...altho that's on the edge of "Vintage".
    Vintage? 1910 to 1980...because like it or not, it's NOT an antique until it's 100 years old...

    Even in the US, we do not all have ready access to the things Billy has listed. I am still trying to find GoJo and Liquid Gold pourable.

    Thanks, Charlee, for the definition. I see even my 'new' machine hits the edge of vintage - at 1979.

    The Scotts Liquid Gold site has it on sale right now. If you can use more than one of their products, shipping won't be too bad. I found Gojo at an automotive supply.

    meant to add the site - http://www.scottsliquidgold.com/scot.../products.html

    I've always heard that antique refers to an item more than 100 years old and vintage to any item 50 to 100 years old.

    I found the Liquid gold on ebay, and I have just looked and Gojo is there too, after I tried Swarfega here, as that seemed the nearest equivalent. That might help some of you.

    Ok. I am trying to get my daughter's 1926 Singer 66 ready for her to start her first quilt top. When I did a practice run, the pieces I was sewing together curled up the back of the presser foot. So it is all bunched up. I have tried adjusting the tension, and am still having the same problem. I can pull it straight after taking it out from under the needle, but it just seems to me that it shouldn't be doing this. Any ideas?

    And no, this isn't the one I took apart to clean! That one is still all over the place! Lol!

    There should be a thumbscrew on top of the machine that the presserfoot bar goes through. Try and to take some tension off of the presserfoot first if that doesnt work then try and to increase the tension.

    If that is not working then take some tension out of the bobbin. To do this you will slide the bobbin plate back as far as it will go. Then take a wee little screwdriver and turn the screw a 1/4 turn counter clockwise. The screw you want to play with is the one that is in line with the notch of the bobbin plate. That is what the notch is for letting the screwdriver get a straighter shot at the tension screw.

    Only adjust it 1/4 turn at a time. In the perfect world the bobbin and the top tension will be equal to each other.
