    Yes. First I clip a clothes pin on one end & lay it across the hole on the back side to keep it from slipping down while I thread the hose around the wheel, then grab both ends, pull it up over the top wheel and pull hard as I can to stretch and tie a knot and keeping the tension on the knot - tie it again really hard. Then I just clip off the excess. I'm at work now and it's church night so I'll try real hard to get a pix when I get home. May be tomorrow before I can post.

    I went hunting for one of my old panty hose to try out in treadle, only to find that I don't own any. In winter, I wear pants, and when weather turns warm enough to wear dresses or skirts, I don't wear panty hose since I hate the feel of them.

    I'll have to purchase a pair to test. I'm now curious.

    Not a close up of the tubing but you can see it working here:

    This is my 306w and it is my treadle pitman link making the terrble clunking noise. The camera was sitting on the table and makes it sound LOUD.

I was going to use oxygen tubing ( left over from my father's medical issues) but what I have is "ribbed" on the inside and i could not find a good connector. for the aquarium tubing I just snipped off an inch of tubing then slit the small piece length wise and rolled it up tightly and inserted it inside the two ends of the belt.
    I just switched the spring coil belt with the aquarium tubing. I used your method of connecting them. That just took a bit of work to roll tightly enough to insert into the ends of belt, but it holds very well! Thanks!! Much easier than sewing the ends together.

    Moistened it a bit, slides together much easier/farther. Hope it holds up and works well for you!

    Hmm I might have slit the tube an extra time (removed a small bit, to make it roll easier too)

    Howdy! Does anyone happen to own a New Royal treadle machine? I am interested in one and seem to not be searching correctly. I can't find out very much about it, except for locating machines that are for sale. Thanks!

    Dang it! It followed me home....how does that happen? Mizkaki, when you get moved and settled, and I figure out what I need, we need to talk about cams for this one! I have 9 or 10...just need the rest of the set....and it's missing the pin tucker too....

    Hey Charlee, did your machine have a friend that you may have sent my way??? Look what followed me home today:> It's a 1956ish Supermatic, with a bunch of cams in great cosmetic condition. But, as usual with these the drive pulley is bad and I'll have to replace it. And learn how in the process!

    Oh Miss Charlee, I thought WE were on the 12-step program? Hm? Hm? I won't mention that I just made a phone call about a CL and I'm waiting a pic with the bonnet off the top of the machine. (Chuckle, "It's just black and has paint. Just like a Singer. Too old, it's just for looking pretty. Doesn't work".) Picture sure looked pretty 'nuf. Can't wait to see the real deal.

    We're not too good at this self-control stuff :-)

    Lovely machine you got yourself there girl. Enjoy.

    best,

    Candace, I know know!! I'm pretty sure this Singer 328K is a male....cuz when I tried to send it away it hopped right into the back of my Trailblazer and followed me home! I couldn't just leave it out in the car...it brought it's luggage (attachment box and manual) with it!

    Deb...I wanna see!! Post the picture!! And I AM on the 12 step program....it's 12 steps from the back of my car to the door!!

    Charlee, do you happen to know anything about a New Royal treadle machine? It has a beautiful cabinet that it is in.

    OH my! I don't think the moderators would like the acronymn I would be writing down right now, but suffice it to say, I'm lol.

    I asked the seller to send me a pic of the machine without the cover. It was taking a very long time, too long. I went back to CL and the listing was gone :-( I sent a text to seller and her response was her dh thinks the machine is worth more than the asking price so she removed the posting. Table and cover indicated a what might have been a pretty little New Home.

    I'm okay with it. But I really wished the one a week or so back worked out. Don't often see Weeds advertised :-(

    I'm in the midst of a thousand "gotta do's" right now (that just happen to have priority) but what I REALLY want to do is get the shuttle area cleaned out and wind the bobbin with fresh thread on the newly acquired 128 electric. I want to hear what she sounds like.

    Come on May 20th! (Day after the wedding.) I got machines, cabinets, reports and quilts backing up here.

    best,

    Let me see what I can find out for you Linda! Anything with "New" in the name automatically makes me think "A.G. Mason"....but that's not necessarily the case!

    Thanks Charlee, I certainly didn't get very far with my limited search. Nice to have pals who know where to look.

    Seems like the New Royal was made (badged) by the Free Sewing Machine Company. (I'll keep looking)

    Looks like the pin has to be driven from the center shaft with a pin punch

    Charlee, You can treadle that Singer 328- that is IF you want to do that! The Singer 328 are fun machines, not the best of the Singers, but they are fun to play with. Congrats!!

    Does that screw loosen and then come all the way out? Looks like it needs a sunbath and oil to loosen it. What machine is this?

    Charlee and Candace I am jealous! I want a 'new' machine to play with too! You guys just gave all of the rest of us the bug AGAIN!

    Charlee that 328 is really cute - love the shape - it reminds me of a Rocketeer!

    Candace I really like the green Elna - that machine looks like a fun one to play with too!

    Congratulations to both of you!

    Hey all....we had a little chat about rayon a few weeks ago and someone else posted this link as to why not to use rayon in quilting and for projects that get a lot of use. It's a good read and explains it better than I did:> http://www.superiorthreads.com/educa...-fiber-viscose

    I am still catching up as been sewing instead of being on the computer. I will have to post some pictures. But here are a couple nice vintage pink sewing machines for those with that collection.

    Cathy - you are right - Ray's class is fantastic - we've been talking about tools - I so needed to know where to get some better tools. I did give him your hug.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
