    Not too bad Wine I think you got your moneys worth thats for sure!! What is the serial on the machine?

    I found out the BKinCO and I have Red Eyes that came from the same allotment and are only several hundred machines apart from each other. How is that for something unique?

    I'm very pleased with it. My number is G4498069. It stated it was a 66 but a funny thing-my friends neighbor has one just like mine and her serial number came up as a different model as mine. I just went to look for it and must have trashed it all ready.

    I do have a light that came with it and the silver cover that goes on too. I should have put them in the posting too. Didn't even think about it! I'm not sure if it's the right one but it works!

    Any leads to find a plate for the back?

    What a beautiful machine! Thank you for sharing photos of her... :-D

    Billy? Do you answer 'ol machine questions here? If not, please ignore my question. IF you do, then here goes... Earlier this week my sis n law brought over my mother n law's circa 1977 Bernina 820....with original book, and most of the feet. (a helper threw away much, until my sis n law rescued the machine!) My question regards the top of it, where one choses either zig zag or straight stitch OR some fancy stitch. Fany stitch requires moving lever to the right backwards...and choosing the fancy stitch (lever moves to right and backwards - in theory...but it refuses to move). Am I doing something wrong, or goes the machine needed services? I really would like to start using the machine, but am afraid something may be wrong with it, so am hesitant. ANY advise would be greatly appreciated Billy (or other Bernina owners out there).

    Sweetie this is what the Shop is for!! So if you ever have any questions feel free to ask them here, remember we are all family in here!!

    Now I like how you said "in theory" :lol: :lol: oh how that applies to half the things I do around here LOL! You might need to take the top of the machine off and see if you can see if there is anything keeping it from moving. It could be some lint or grime keeping it from moving or just needs a drop or two of oil to help it out. If that is not it see if there is something that is keeping it from moving, follow the path it takes and it just might just rear its ugly little head and then you can fix what ever it is. But I am looking towards the needing oil fix myself.

    I hope this helps and I am pretty sure we might have a few owners here that might could help us out also. Let me know if I can do anything to help

    I havent taken pictures yet but my new home model NLB machine was free from the swap shop. it is in good condition but my main problem now is my instruction book. Aparently it had gotten wet. the pages are stuck together.
    I've managed carefully to undo every othe page. DH says to put it in the micro with a cup of water to steam it open. he has never steered me wrong. will this work? or other advice?

    Does anyone have any information about a Kemore 120-710? It may be as old as 1955. I think it's one of those "oil-less" machines as there are no oil holes and I am having problems finding any info about them other than getting a manual for $21 which is almost as much as I paid for it. Pictures are at http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-52173-1.htm Thanks

    Okay, here is the latest addition. I found this on CL and got it for $20. Sorry I didn't dust and clean her up, so these are the before pictures. Can you believe it?????? It is parched so will start oiling her up and work on the few places of rust. Serial No. 502163 and made in Japan badged as a Janome.

    The bobbin holder is missing and not sure if there is more parts that should be there. Also need a needle plate as the little clip on the bottom that holds it on is broken. Billy can you help me find it in the shop? What type of bobbin with this take?

    Now decisions, to treadle or hand crank? Doing a happy dance today!

    Are there parts missing? Need bobbin holder

    Oh Lisa how in the world do you do it? you keep finding these rascals and I am really amazed. As far as the parts I will PM you and get you the links to where they live at.

    This machine will take the class 15 bobbins and I notice that the hook is missing and the clip that holds everything in and the bobbin case. All of which you can get from this one place I am PMing you.

    Hi and here is my newest baby blue; I have searched everywhere on new and cannot find my big blue machine.
    She is a Home Mark model # Ke77326 made in Japan. Plate on front says Precision built and initials T.JK. carved in neck. Has anyone seen one of these before. She was only $9 and needs needle screw and the cord replaced to foot pedal. Thank you for any help

    beautiful blue and weights about 40lbs.

    Sue, That is a beautiful machine! Billy will pop on and tell you more. But looks like another "badged" machine from Japan.

    Congratulations.

    Lisa you are right again!! That is gorgeous and if I am correct I know a cute someone in Colorado has one real similar to that one. I made sure I wrote the stamped letters in my notes to try and figure this machines maker out. But it will be years from getting that nailed down I am afraid unless something opens up in my research.

    Hey BK what is the name on your machine and does it have any markings like this one?

    You blue machine is absolutely gorgeous. I can't believe how beautiful that is. That reminds me that there is a blue machine that I need to see if it is still for sale. Thanks for posting photos of your machine.

    Happy 4th to everyone. Have a safe weekend and meet back here in the shop on Monday. Lots of auctions and yard sales to go to I'm sure. So we will see how many machines follow us home.

    Linda, Thanks. I think they are real but have never seen them before. There a just a few dings in the japan that I will try Billy's paint pen suggestion to touch up. I am getting the list of parts together for the bobbin and get those ordered. It will have to wait until I get back from trip next weekend to get her together.

    Billy, I just check CL every few days and see what's there. I need to retire so I can get to work on all these machines and sew!

    Oh, ment to tell everyone I just got my Singer 301A from Canada. You wouldn't beleive how it was packaged. The machine and parts were wrapped in bubble wrap and put in the case. Then the whole case was wrapped in an egg crate mattress. Had a hard time getting it out of the box. The outside of the box was totally wrapped in clear tape. The machine came through with flying colors and works like a dream. I feel very lucky that the person I won her from took such great care in wrapping. I wish I had taken pictures now of how she was wrapped. Here is her picture. (didn't mean to tell so much but I am excited!)

    DH calles her Ellie from Canada

    That is a handsome machine Crossstitcher you did very well on the purchase of that one. And to know that the shipping was not an issue makes it that much more better.

    Note to self: Finish making that grooling towel :)

    Today was a long and extremely trying day but seeing all the beautiful machines made it seem much better (knowing it was Friday helped too). Thanks for sharing your treasures.

    Hope everyone has a safe and blessed Holiday weekend.

    I just love your 301 ! I have one just like it here. I found a few feet for her on my trip, but still need a FMQ type foot. I did have a walking foot waiting when I got home.

    I found probably five or six machines I wanted on my trip, but decided to get my sewing room reorganized so I have room for them.
