    As a matter of fact, I need a couple of spool pins for the Pfaff 230 and they do have one that it seems they may sell the parts. Anyway, I have contacted them and we shall see.

    Does anyone know where I could find more info on the Minerva? I've done searches but all draw blanks, mainly dating info would be great.

    Thanks again
    If only shipping weren't so expensive I would be glad to send the motor to you!

    Was only joking (truly)!! Would never throw out a hint like that, sorry if I caused any confusion.

    Nuther freebie. When I search CL, I just put "sewing". And there it was on the "free" section. Naturally, we had to check it out. A treadle Singer in the plain vanilla cabinet. Looks like perhaps a 27 with very silvered decals. Also included a puzzle box. This was one of those "its for free on the porch" ads.
    DH also picked up a vintage girls bicycle, The Raleigh", that had the little basket and original bell. He knows someone who restores them.
    Don't know if it is a curse or blessing when the thrift shop and estate sale folks want your name/phone in case they get a machine.

    They have a number of sewing machines that could be cleaned, polished and put back into production. Or if you need parts it might be a good option. Please let us know if this is not a good resource.

    Judy
    They really do have many that could be redone, but I don't like the 'Pick up only'. How do they ever sell all of those if they don't ship?

    At first I thought it was a mistake but I see the comma so I assume that is the price that he/she is trying to sell it for.
    Another case of someone trying to sell something they don't know the value of...

    I went back to look at the Japanese cloned 15 (the badged Sears Kenmore)today, money in hand, ready to buy. I had made my decision to get it, but sadly found it did NOT have it's cord or it's bobbin case. The person I talked to said it was her sister's, and she took my phone # so her sister could call me. I am hoping and praying she can find that cord and the bobbin case at her house, as both are very specific to this machine and it's dead in the water without them. WHAT A BUMMER...

    I contacted them about a spool pin too. Let's see if you or I get a reply :) Good Luck!

    Had to laugh out loud! Wonder if the person who thought of this is named Boudreaux or Thibadeaux?

    Maybe they don't sell them and that is why they have so many. LOL. Maybe we should have the VSMS Retreat in Frederick, OK. We wouldn't have to bring our own SM, we could just go to the store and buy one :)

    Hey, that's my kind of hang out. Too bad I'm here and it's there. I do love mail order, and have bookmarked. Thanks.

    It's a running joke among us Cajuns. Lots of jokes about Boudreaux and Thibadeaux. Not stupid, just think different, see things in a different light. I guess you would have to be from the area...

    Tomilu, I put just 'sewing' in CL instead of 'sewing machine'. I found many more machines including 2 treadles for good prices. No phone numbers - just the CL address. I'm not sure my Microsoft Outlook works so I have no idea if my messages went through. Couldn't access the address in yahoo mail. Darn. A third ad had a phone #, but it's too late to call.

    That's OK.....I put my mouth (fingers) into gear before my brain forgetting that I'm a newbie here and you aren't familiar with my sense of humour!! Never my intention to upset anyone!!

    Although in saying that, I have a net friend in Texas who says Texans have a similar sense of humour to Aussies!!

    You are probably right. It's only $20 and less than a mile away, but I'm up to my eyeballs in machines to fix and find a home for, so I'm gonna let that one pass.

    Glad you had good success. Sometimes I use "soing" or "sowing" just for fun. Not many found, though. I copy the email addys and send through my yahoo email.

    Does it need the cord with the big 3- hole plug? And they usually take a standard bobbin case, at least that has been my experience. I have a couple of models here now that take the case with the "1 o'clock" finger.

    OK, here are some pictures of the machine. Its model no. is 19E, and Mum thinks she bought it 1963, which seems about right.
    Let me know if it helps!
