    Did you have to adjust thread clearance gap?

    Based on the conversation about machine names- my name is Priscilla and I finally scored a Priscilla machine off the bay. However, it arrived with the motor mount broken, so I am sending it back. Enough to make me cry, as I just NEVER see these for sale!

    Thanks,

    I missed a Priscilla treadle machine here on CL by about an hour. Am still sad about that. She came with a beautiful cabinet.

I told the kids it would go fast - I am surprised the ad is still out there. My son answered early this morning that he won't be able to go get it but I haven't heard from my daughter yet. I can hope!
    My son went and purchased this for me yesterday! I spent weeks sending/receiving emails from the seller (she was very nice and helpful). I wanted to be sure I could sew with it so I needed the needle, shuttle, and bobbin to be there. I found the manual online so I had an idea of what the shuttle looked like. IT IS ALL THERE! I can hardly believe it. You can see one bobbin hanging off the machine arm by a string and she sent pictures of the shuttle that was under the slide plate and that has a bobbin in it too. She also sent a close up picture of the needle out of the machine. The needle appears to be a straight needle so I'm hoping I can find other needles that will work in this machine.
    Now, when can I get back to MN to pick this up?

    After studying all of the pictures closer, I think this might be a #1 rather than the #2 I said above. If so, that model sold for $70 in the 1870's. I'll have to see it in person to make the final decision.

    Judy,

    There are going to be a lot of envious people on this board. Count me as one. Congratulations!

    I can't believe I got it! I thought it would be snatched up in a matter of days. It must be meant to come out west! I just don't know when we will go to pick it up.

    BTW Judy what a wonderful machine you got there. I now want one if I can convince Pat to let me have another machine in the house.

    Beautiful machine... And a Great Price. Enjoy. I'd love to see some sewing samples from it.

    Judy, it must of been 'meant to be!" I can't believe the machine sat while you emailed back and forth for weeks? For that price, for that machine, what a deal! People were either asleep or just didn't see the advertisement! Great find!

    Glad you got it figured out.

    Joe it wasn't the Bight control knob that I messed with - well I do that too -, but the actual position finger that is the clearance for the thread from the bobbin casing. I just messed with everything actually. Anyway, the 319 seems to be a little touchy.

    Skip nice to have you back. Now tell me how much you use your 319 in treadle? I use mine almost everyday, if not to piece something, then to mend something. It is so easy to get to all the time. The fact that the 319 has decorative stitches means that no matter what I need to do - that machine can usually handle it. But, I am now getting a little worried because I seem to mess it up a lot! There was a 319 just like mine (with a motor, but I'd just do a motorectomy) on our local Craigslist for $30 - in a cabinet - last week. By the time I saw the ad, it was already sold! I was going to get that one for a backup machine!

    Priscilla, that is just sad! You need to get Miriam, on here, to find you a Priscilla machine! Miriam is the best at packing machines so they arrive in great shape.

    I have a very nice looking blank clone - maybe you could write it on there?

    Nancy,

    Bight control knob, position finger ....... ah parts nomenclature. The bane of my existence. Cars, sewing machines, anything else.
    Widgets, thingamajigs, whatsits, those I usually can figure out. , but Bight control, that's what your dentist works on ... right?

    Joe it is BYTE control. Not bite control - that is what you work on with your DOG. LOL Joe you are so right. I hang up on that too. AND I refuse to make any attempt to take it apart and figure out how it works.

    I would only take one apart "if" I had a detailed instruction manual with specs and pictures. Like a carburetor kit instruction sheet.
    LOL, it's been a loooooong time since I worked on one of those.

    Welcome to the vintage machine thread. If you want info about your machine, you'll need to post a picture. Dynamic is just too vague.
