    How do you recognize that this is a RAF machine?

    I love the delicate decals.

    Billy I had a blue Morse that I gave to a girl friend. If we get the serial number can you tell us how old that machine is? It has a "Good Housekeeping" seal of approval on it (if I remember right).

    Update on that Wizard machine....it's waiting for me at home..geeez ....got to wait until next Tuesday to see it and do research on it. All I know is that it is Blue, the model number is on the previous message I left in this thread around page 365..lol. It's I believe a Japanese model and it came with all the attachments and the book. Get this $10. Yes the vintage machines excite me...roflmao.

    That one is older than mine. Most of the pictures of the RAF's that I have seen look like this. And one reason why I questioned if mine was a RAF and Singer since mine has a modern knob for the feed dogs to drop down where the serial # plate would be.

    Looks like a nice machine.

    Still love the shop. So informative. Must get butt in gear and start working with my vintage machines, especially the newest purchases.

    chris_quilts,
    Love your lynx point siamese. I lost my little one last March and miss her terribly.

    Billy,
    Thank you so much. It is always nice to find information for a new toy. Could you tell me approximately what year it was made? And can I get any attachments, booklets, etc.?

    Thanks so much. He's a very handsome cat who has me well trained. His name is Romeo b/c he's quite the lover although he does play rough. Sorry to hear about your loss. Just had my beloved 13 yo kitty euthanized yesterday. Meds weren't helping and it was a kindness for him. Losing furbabies can be horrible.

    My avatar is my old Singer model 128 converted to a hand-crank. I works great. My Dad bought the machine new for my mom about 1955. It has been in storage for 30 years.

    Godzilla finish with blackside plates, etc?
    Awesome looking machine.
    Great year too, my birth year.
    Blessings,

    The machine was commissioned in 1952. I had it converted to a h-c.

    Like your avatar. You should change your name to Godzilla to match.

    Thank you so much. Black Foot and his brother Tigger loved spending time in the sewing room. Sometimes it made it hard to do any sewing as you can see in the pic. lol

    Annaquilts I totally agree with you! It is very important to me that all my machines work and have all their parts attached! Even if I am not planning on using a machine, I want them all in good working order, that includes being clean and oiled up!

    I'd get a real belt for the poor thing!

    I already posted on the pictures section but here is my new addition. Her name is Cleo and was given to me by one of my bosses at work. It was a total surprise and I finally got her home today. When we took her out of the box, I found this part on the floor. Is it part of the machine - please say it isn't necessary for it to function because I have no idea where it would go. As a matter of fact, I have no experience whatsoever with treadles so I will be doing quite a bit of research on them. Any suggestions as to what to read or where to find information?

    Lots of times people stick left over "bits and parts" in SM drawers. This doesn't look familiar to me, so stick it back in a drawer and start sewing!!

    Very nice Sphinx Model 27 (I think). I have that exact same cabinet with a Singer 9W in it. I also have the Sphinx, but mine is a Model 127!

    Your machine and cabinet look to be a great shape. Lucky you!

    Treadle on has information. I think that part is the spring for the belt shifter, the latch that you move to take the belt off the big wheel on the treadle. You should have a spring there, if not that may be where it goes. Here is a picture of mine. My treadle still needs additional work and cleaning, so pardon the dirt.

    Does anyone know how to find out the age of the White sewing machines? I looked on the internet and can't find a list like Singer has on aging a machine.

    Sure looks like that may be it - hope I can figure out how to get it back on if so. Thanks much!

    Probably easier than it looks; just unscrew the screw there and the spring will set in under the latch that the belt goes through.
    You're welcome.
