The gal who did the video had put a piece (I think it was leather) to quiet the machine down on the wheel belt groove. But, I still wonder about the affect on the machine after continued use with a coil spring?

    Someone stated that they had a machine with the piece of rubber in the groove wheel and the coil spring that was set up that way. The machine was very very old. I doubt there will be a problem with this set up and it should make the machine quiet.

    How beautiful. What is the serial number?

    If you click on this website, you will find out quite a bit about your machine... what model it is, when it was commissioned to be built, what year, etc.

    If you post what your serial number is someone can tell you even more.

    :-D

    Ooops, I just noticed it is a Minnesota... hmm, have you done a google search? :oops:

    Janice, that machine looks very nice, but I'd be willing to bet it has been painted. The name Singer does not appear on the machine, and coming from1938, there should be gold decals somewhere on the machine along with Singer.

    It still looks really good, though.

    Nancy
    OK, after looking again I see it's a repaint, but I think it does look good!

Unloaded it from the truck and put the head back in the cabinet and she started sewing. Belt a little loose other than that can't see any problems. Maybe a little cleaning needed and a drink of oil. She was loaded with jewelery. Man said he had needles and other stuff but didn't know they went with the machine. Here is a few pictures of Betty Boops (what DH named her)
    Trish, that Davis is just wonderful!!! Can't wait to see her cleaned up.

    Kathie I think the red eyes are my favorite machine and the decals on yours are out standing should really be an eye popper when cleaned up.

    :roll:

    Anyone know what model this machine? It looks to big to be a 301. Is it a good price?
