Thank you Weedwoman! I got the manual printed out! This machine threads weird!

I have been searching for the needles Billy said I needed - Boyle 18 -- can't find them? Any ideas?

THANK YOU AGAIN!

I know a little old man that repairs machines for the salvation army store and he has a load of machines, he's the one with the Wheeler/Wilson one we looked at (what a gorgeous one) I'll see him again soon or talk to him on the phone and I'll ask him if he has a source.

Bought a little machine today (not the Wheeler/Wilson) but another that I have no idea what it is. No marks on head but underneath it has NSMCO model A 605300889.
I'll add some pics in a minute. No case, just a little bottom cabinet that looks like maybe a display thingy.

When I spin the wheel it moves freely so I think it would work, however I do not know what to look for as far as the bobbin is concerned etc. I looked around the net and here is a picture of it, however, the one I saw says Freeman No 5 on the top, not just Free.

So, should I race back up there a get this machine? If so are there things I should check before buying? DH says I can get it if I will use it, so it has to work :). It looked to be in good condition, cabinet too, just needs a little cleaning.

Thanks
Go get it that is a really neat cabinet it is in and you do not see many of them at all. If it needs a belt you can find those on eBay and I am fixing to start carrying the parts/belts for them also!

Thanks!!! I am going to get it ASAP. If you look at the page that says "longbobbin rotary" the top cabinet is what this one looks like.

Hoping to be pedaling (i mean treadling) soon, lol.

That looks really nice Kas. Great job! The machine cleaned up so nice. Who would have thought that? She is very pretty. I am partial to Red Eyes.

That would be fantastic! I got the belt on the Singer 9w (Wheeler/Wilson) and it seems to work great without thread!

Billy I am so glad you mentioned that the wheel of this machine goes backwards -- I probably would have broke something before I figured it out!

On a lighter note -- I CAN TREADLE and SEW -- this in on the Singer Model 15. The Model 15 is very easy to treadle and it sews perfect stitches!

My Singer 127 also sews perfect stitches once I get it going -- that is the part that is still hard for me!

I love the Red Eyes! Your machine cleaned up beautifully!

Where can I get the "Cleaning your machine Tutorial?" I am so hooked on vintage machines, I think I better get the tutorial!
