Now I don't know if the tag pertains to Marilyn or some other machine. There was an instruction book for "The Eldredge Two Spool Sewing Machine" along with the Belair manual. So, who knows? I think that the only reason both the manuals survived was that they were taped to the inside of the cabinet and were very oil soaked.

    I think that the cabinet Marilyn came in is much older than she is. I have never seen one like it. The oval top folds back and rests on a pull out support to create a table. Really cool. But it looks as if it spent some time in a garage because the top is marred by what looks like paint can rings, scratches and one big cigarette burn.
    WOW two projects for the price of one! There is a book by George Grotz called "The Furniture Doctor" might be of help on that lovely table. http://books.google.com/books?id=P1r...page&q&f=false The book is a really good read. Sounds like the red thing is a nifty invention there to clean your shuttle! I think I saw a black one once.
    Thanks for the book referral. I will order it today. A couple more pictures of the cabinet attached. The second photo shows that the cabinet had been modified to accept another machine besides Marilyn. The beige stuff inside is a thread catcher made of two scraps of upholstery or drapery fabric, old stuff. Any ideas as to it's age?

    This photo at the back shows the table support

Unfortunately, I had also volunteered to fill a booth at a local county fair, not realizing that the two overlapped. So I set up at both. Here are photos from the show.
    Olebat, Great job of displaying those machines! You need to go to the Vintage Sewing Machine photo shop and post those machines there too! It would be great if you posted the machines with their Manufacturer name, Model name and their years!

    Texas Jan and Glenn WOW! What a nice little WW, and Glenn love the throne!

Either way Valerie told me to stay inside and rest all weekend and hopefully I can make it until Monday when I see my Rhuematologist. :( :( :(

    Anyway I have the link to event and here is a link to the auction list for some of the machines that are being sold there. I wanted to go because there are 2 machines that I wanted to bid on.

    Just click on the auction catalog and be sure to put a bib on!!

    Billy, I hope you are feeling better today! I hope your Dr. is working with you and trying to find a med that has longer staying power!

    Yes - looks like a Model 20 - it also looks like it has a Centennial badge on it - it looks just like my Sewhandy - only not black.
