    OK, THAT was not exactly one stop shopping ;) Only took me 3 stores...........to get all but one item....finally I just substituted something else for that. Hopefully it will all be good....

    I figure this is my trial machine anyway ~ it can't possibly get in any worse condition than it already is ;)

    that should be at my house Tuesday or Wednesday. Don't know anything about it other than it was pretty. (do not go on ebay at 2:30 am - you do strange things)

    Kat B,
    Your White is lots prettier than mine is! I bought a White VS III on Saturday and most of her decals are gone and she has some surface rust; however I think I can get her to sew again as she moves freely and the treadle moves nicely too.
    I need to find a front slide plate for her too.

    Ahhhh(smile, happy dance)

    I have just finished reading the entire 107 pages,all three tutorials and am waiting for my FW to be shipped from Colorado this week.

    It has been an exciting three days (daze) of reading, printing and downloading some tidbits. This is so (sew) interesting. :-)

    Now, I really have to do some housework while DH is gone and I have the house to myself. Then, I might even find (ah-hem) some time to actually sew.

    More when my new-to-me baby arrives. Thanks for all the help and sharing.

    Piecefully yours,
    Kay

    Billy,

    I ordered some #66 bobbins for my treadle machine. Now, how do I fill them up? LOL! The treadle came with the bobbin winder but I don't have a clue as to how to use it.

    Hi Kay, you are about the 3rd new person to come into the shop having read 100+ pages. You must be a bit blurry-eyed by now. :roll: :shock: :roll:

    The info in those pages are really chuck full of valueable material (fabric, I guess I could say). I am trying to find time to chronical all of the pages so I know where to look when I need some info.

    WELCOME! Hope you continue to enjoy everyone's company. Linda

    Billy or Charlee, My hubbie just bought me a new old machine today. If you remember I talked to you last week about buying a machine called "The Free" well we oiled it some and got it running but not going to use it until we do a good cleaning. But, back to what I got today. It's another "Free" only this one is a treadle. Has a date of 1907. the model number is 873674. There is a lot of attachments with it and the original manual was still in the drawer also there is a warrenty paper from the company with Will Free's signature. Every thing works but there was no needles again so what would you recomend? The manual just tells me what number to use for what thread size but not the needle size. My DH bought it from the orginal owner's granddaughter and it has been stored in a garage. The cabinet is in fairly good shape and is a curved cabinet. With 6 drawers. When you raise the lid the machine comes up on it's own. Or auto. Will take pictures as soon as we get our garden caught up.

    quilt mom, what year is it? I brought mine thru ebay at 238.00 and it's a beauty but no manual or attachments. It was an one owner machine. Call Singer for info, they can tell you approximate rough price to pay,

    The Free takes a standard 15x1 needle. The last time I used mine was probably 10 years ago, but it has a lovely stitch and was easy to sew on.

    I picked up my craigslist treadle today. I will post more about it later, but here's what I found out so far. Serial # 11 938 834, issued in 1894. There is an original manual with the machine, saying "vibrating shuttle No. 2" - or more accurately, it says "Vibrerende Skyttel No. 2" - because the manual is written in Danish! I have never seen the decals before, but I think I found them on page 3 of the needlebar's decals page, all the way at the bottom, with no explanation. The decals are in great shape. Most of the V.S. 2's appear to have the fiddle base, but this one is rectangular. Apparently "No. 2" machines were eventually called Model 27-2, but this manual does not reference the number 27 anywhere. The face plate is plain (boo-hoo). There were several bobbins in the drawer (with thread on them), and the machine parts move freely. The pitman is wood. Oh yes, it came with the original oil can too. I am so happy to have found this machine. I will practice restoring another one before tackling this one - I don't want to harm it.

    manual and oil can - anyone speak Danish?

    I wish I could post a pic, but when I put my camera away, I apparently hid it from myself! Sorry, no extra drawers! My center drawer needs a slide on one side, but I have no idea how to fix it. Does yours have the side table that lifts up on the left side?

    Yes, it does. I don't think my center drawer will stay put either. When I figure out how it should work I'll let you know.
