    Do you know where I can get an original case for a White Featherweight. Mine was damaged in shipment and DH can't fix it. Thanks

    Judy, I'd bid on that just to get the 201 if I were close enough to pick it up!

    Try going in this way.

    Right click on the address that someone provided here
    scan down to where it say "Properties" in the box that pops up
    click on "Properties" - normal left click (in pop up box)
    go to the URL it provided and highlight the URL address -all of it
    now do a Ctrl + C to copy the address
    Say 'ok' after the address is highlighted
    go to your address bar at the top where it starts with 'http"
    now do a Ctrl + V to paste the address in your address bar
    hit enter

    This sounds like a lot to do, but it isn't really once you get use to having to do this to get these sites to come up. This is what I have to do to get these links to come up. I can't just click on a site to get it up, I have to copy and paste it.

    I think this is high but it sure is a nice looking machine.

    Anyone interested?
    I looked at it last night, too. Out of my price range, but nice!

    I found mine at a Napa's Auto Parts store. About $3 if I remember correctly. Good Luck in finding it!

    The 201 is 99 miles from my son with a big black diesel truck. I DO NOT NEED IT! He'll be coming this way May 1st. I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER MACHINE!

    Thank you.
    Check out Dave McCallum's website, "Featherweight Rx":

    http://www.featherweight221.com/fwrx/index.html

    I highly recommend his book. It's really worth the cost of it. I also have the DVD set which is a pretty penny but is also worth it.

    Thanks everyone for the info. I found the GoJo cleaner at O'Reillys Auto Parts. It was only 1.89.. So come this week end I will be cleaning and polishing my featherweight.

The singer had some electrical issues and seemed a little sluggish, so I opted to leave that one at the store. The Necchi, that I wasn't really interested in was like a work horse. It was quiet, smooth, kinda like driving a luxury car, so I brought that one home. All that to get to the question: I want to get some cams for it, I've looked on E-Bay the sellers for the ones listed don't know which machine they are for. Are the cams for the Necchi interchangeable or are the specific to each model? I'd appreciate any information. Thanks in advance.

    I can't print the URL to this site (for some reason, it won't let me), but if you'll go to the vintagejapansewingmachines site on Yahoo groups and check out message 3495, it will give you some info on these machines.
    Thanks Miz Johnny, I'll give it a try.

    Naomi is in her new home. DH and I traveled to Okiepastor's (Mary) home today to deliver the 15-91 to her. We had a great visit and got to see all the animals she and Bill have. One little goat was very friendly and even hopped into the van to check things out or hitch a ride, lol. And somehow we managed to get home with 6 of Mary's machines to check out for her. Story of my life; the faster I go the behinder I get.

    Nope, but I'd sure bid on the machine if it were closer! I don't need another cabinet. My DH and I are re-finishing 3 right now. The Wilcox & Gibbs is finally coming along nicely after removing two layers of black paint, and a layer of primer!
