    Well, I did it again, I bought that treadle I looked at yesterday. Will pick it up tomorrow so will post photos once I get her here. Still have to pick up the Necchi I bought a week or so ago.

    How hard is it to find the spring on the Model 66 for the bobbin winder? I think the parts number is 15286. How expensive are they?

    Glenn, Do you still have the long bobbin? I sure could use that in my new machine. Thanks,

    Hello again..........
    A couple of weeks ago hubby & I were hitting all the yard sales in the area. We found this at one and I noticed it was different. The patina is awesome and I realized the color is unusual as well. Olive drab green.
    I did look on Needlebar for some info on it. I found several electric ones similar, but no treadle heads.
    Can you guys tell me anything about this pretty baby?

    Thank you and blessings to all,
    Sandi

    And plan to look at a treadle when we return from vacation if it is still available (its an old Franklin). My MIL health is failing fast, in less than a year she has gone from working part-time to a scooter and oxygen tank. We are taking her on a cruise. Snorking is a life long dream of hers. I will be MIA for 10 days or so starting tomorrow.

    Billy, thank you so much for all that you do. You are saving pieces of our history from the landfill and preserving them for future generations. I truly appreciate the time an effort this takes.

    Blessings,

    Hey not a problem, I love to play around with these old machines and I love the ones you guys keep coming up with. And yes I love the PINK machine!!!! It is a Japanese Model 15 and you can not go wrong with the quality and the reliability of those machines. And the colors are always bright and colorful!!

    I hope you have fun on your cruise, I know that MIL will have a blast. If you want I can crawl into one of you bags and you can take me with you!!! :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    And just from experience, stay away from the Jellies!!! They are no fun when you get stung ask my wife and daughter.

    Local repair shop and possibly eBay. There are other dealers online like this one that might help you out.

    Billy, The tan one I got on E Bay several years ago and the white one was at a Thrift shop for only$24.95. I couldn't believe it, but thrilled to get it. Those two are really plain Jane machines as there is no gold decals on them as on the black ones which look so classy. Ruth

    No1Jan- thanks for posting. Your cabinet and mine are identical except you have the Queen Anne legs and I have the Standard leges. It is a Singer model 40 cabinet. I prefer the Queen Anne legs as some of my furniture is that style. My mom was more conservative and chose the standard even tho she wanted the Queen. Do you have the bench?
    Thanks.
