    Patrick I really like your treadle grinder. I am looking for one but have had no luck here in AL. I have been looking for two years. I am green with envy. Gelnn

    We have a machine like yours and it uses a Boye notched top needle #8 and a #7 shuttle. We just saw the needles on e-bay the other day. Somewhere I have a person that sells these items and I will try and find the address. PM me and I will let you know who to get in touch with.
    Ah, this rings a bell!! I am going to check with a friend; I believe she has the information on a modern needle that will work.

    What is this NeedleBar site? Maybe I do not want to know. Is this the site that is not happy with Billy?

    I am a member and yes you have to jump through hoops to get on. Yes I think this is the same site that doesn't want Billy's info any more. It's there lost!

    I just don't get it. Months ago while researching a vintage machine I came across NB. At that time I discovered that it was a closed door unless you were a member. Well, it is sad to see this kind of selfishness.
    My feeling is that the machines will out live us. So, why be so secretive about the information on the machines? And selective? Why is NB that protective? If you make the information available to the public, then the person who has now become the steward of the machine will be educated on that machine and its history. Plus, they are apt to take better care of the machine.

    Theresse sent me a private message asking for help posting her pictures of her vintage machines that she has already posted on QB. So, here are the links:

    Glenn, Thanks. I never seen one before this one and did not even know that they existed. I would like to hear about other tools of this design if you know of any place to look on the net would be great.
    I will keep you in mind if I ever find another one. Patrick

    Well, guys & gals, dh got the FW running like a top!! I am soooo happy. there was a pc of thread/lint behind the bobbin shuttle, then he didn't have something lined up right and the needle hit the shuttle, then the needle had a slight bend in it from hitting. All said & done h's pretty pleased with himself. LOL so am i. Got going and couldn t seem to stop. cleaned, oiled the other FW, my old Kenmore, and the newest Janome. Keeps going on about the new one cause of all the plastic. scared him. newest and most expensive by far. thank you everyone that helped me figure this out over the past few days. YOU ARE ALL WONDERFUL!!

    What is the decal called on this machine? At first glance I thought it was a Red Eye, but it's not a model 66 and the decals are not Red Eye. Does anyone have any idea?

    Whatever it is, the decals are in beautiful condition. Is it going to come live at your house?

    Could an ORIGINAL singer 15 have had ALL of the following, or could some features have NOT been on the 15?

    1. Left (back) tension control knob.
    2. Scroll faceplate.
    3. Mimimal gold decals on front and bed. . . (not sure which pattern they were, but like filigre or triplets style)
    4. Silver handwheel, (I THINK it was solid, but not sure if it was solid or spoke).
    5. Some part of the stitch regulator very shiny silver, (not sure if it was the plate or the lever/knob on it)

    I am trying so hard to remember everything about my grandmother's machine, on which I learned to sew and these are the things I seem to remember about it. Unfortunately, no photos of her at the machine, though she spent thousands of hours there. Thanx to anyone who could tell me for sure about the items on and original class 15. Brenda

    Oh and the bobbin was not a shuttle it was round and it had a motor and belt and was in a treadle cabinet, which must have been from her original machine which I don't remember.

    I just contacted a woman about an old Singer. She said it was from the 50's. She changed it to a Westinghouse5 and than to a New Home type s. I have never heard of a Westinghouse sewing machine. I am sure they were not New Home, unless New Home was not a name but a model. Any feed back? Kathie

    Yes Glenn the NB is the site that hates me now, I am probably kicked off for all I know I havent tried to get on since the fall out. Oh well there loss........

    Anyway I brought my new baby home today and its an early one!! Its a Domestic like the one that "Olebat" has but my Irons are a little different. My serial number is 499770 and it was full of accessories and did have the shuttle in it but it is missing now and I cant find it anywhere. I hope I didnt drop it in the driveway of the folks that I bought it from.

    But like a lot of times the shuttle plate was replaced and it has a different number on it from the machine its like in the 779xxx's.

    I will post photos of it tomorrow when I get a chance, I have 4 machines to paint so I will be busy!

    I got my 301a long bed black machine in a case tonight. The case is very very musty (banned from inside the house temporarily) but in great shape otherwise. No manual or acc., but I do have some extra acc. that can be dug up. Now to find an original manual. Will post pics tomorrow.
