    It might be a badged machine but at the turn of the century there were over 100 sewing machine manufacturers in the US alone. If you had a garage and some mechanical ability you were in the sewing machine business!!

    Debo I have never seen one in person but I know they were good machines!! They were a badged machine and more than likely yours was made by Eldridge/National.

    How big is that Decker? All I could find on Needlebar was a reference to a "Princess Decker"...a toy or child's treadle machine...in which case, BUY IT!! :lol:

    :roll: :roll: :roll: Interesting! Gee, I have a 2 car garage without any cars in it... not sure I would say I have mechanical ability. But, I am always willing to learn when I have a need. With 7 vintage machines I think I am beginning to qualify as having the need to learn. Thanks.

    The Decker apprears to be usual size for Vintage machines. The finish looks really great and the decals look to be very much intact.

    NEEDLEBAR: I am still locked out of there. Everytime I login in with my username and then click that I forgot my password this message comes up: You are not authorised to request a new password.

    So far I cannot see a way to contact Alan. Billy/Charlee, do you know where else for me to go? I am also Sewextreme on there.

    Hope you don't mind me adding my two cents. I too forgot my password on Needlebar. Sent requests for a new password, but I was ignored. I just signed up with my first name and a new email address. I was accepted within two days. Just a suggestion.
    Blessings to you,

    Is there anyway you could post a few photos for us to look at?

    I might could tell the manufacturer by certain features it has.

    Here is the Decker Trundle driven machine. :?: :?:

    With the wheel on the right inside of the cabinet, I wonder if she meant 'treadle'? I'm stumped. I have written to the owner but have not heard back yet. ;-)
