    Thank you, thank you, thank you Miz Johnny!!!! You made my day and I really mean that. I had no idea what all those gadgets were that are with the machine. I can't wait to get a belt and start her going. I can I repay you for giving this info to me.After cleaning and boiling down 1/2 bushel of grapes and making apple pies today I sat down totally exhausted and jumped on my computer and found your information. I'm one happy camper, whoops learning to be a quilter.

    Billy, love the setup, and that 66 is sleek and flashy--she reminds me of Catwoman!! You do GREAT work--I love seeing your machines. Your sewing set-up is just amazing.
    I enjoy seeing what everyone does with machines--we're all different and have a different focus, it's truly interesting to see what each individual has in mind when they haul that machine in!

    Glad it was helpful. I'll just have a slice of pie and wait for you to start sewing!
    I was in Tennessee last weekend for a TVQA quilt retreat. There are quilt guilds everywhere in TN, so maybe sometime when life gets a little calmer (hah!), you could join one and learn from other quilters. I live in KY, but am a member at large just so I can go to the retreats!!

    Wow, I love pictures!

    This is what my DH and I found today at a yard sale. She is a May 12, 1936, 99K made in Clydebank, Scotland! She is perfect, decals look great! I got her for $15 (I think because I can't run her!) She needs to be changed to a 120V motor from a 240V motor! This is probably why she is so perfect -- she couldn't be used here!

    Yep it was a Red Eye 66-1 and I borrowed the hand wheel off of the 99 you gave me to run it. I am looking for the nickel plated version of the hand wheel for the 99 and it will be in the treadle for the next project!

    Nice work Billy! :thumbup: I have an old redeye that I am cleaning and will repaint it black and will add a handcrank or at least this is what I want to do. I am building a bed for it now. I understand you are now in the parts business for I may need some parts soon. Glenn
