    When I looked up her serial number I found that her decals are La Vencendora decals....grape vine and leaf motif. I did a google translate and La Vencendora means The Winner in Spanish. So, maybe I should name her Dora! How cute is that??

    Ok, I'm gonna admit my ignorance! This is the same machine I picked up at the consignment store for $38. There was no foot pedal so I thought it was just missing. There is the "knee control" in the case but I didn't know what it was for.

    Also, my case is really really broken on the bottom. How is the best way to repair it? The top is in good shape.

    The wires are iffy so I haven't tried to sew with it but everything turns and moves well. Also, what does the bullet bobbin look like? I can't tell if there is one in there are not.

    As I said, my ignorance is really showing on this machine!! :)

    If you find a source for either of these, would you post the site? I need them, too! Thanks!

    Here is what the key looks like to my dome top singer 128 case. I am assuming they are all alike?

    Just recently there was an eBay seller who had bottom cases for sale in a choice of three timber colours, but I've just done a quick search and can't find them...maybe it was too quick!! LOL Maybe keep an eye on eBay unless you can find a donor machine and swap cases.

    Keys are available too, but as usual, some are quite costly.

    Picked up a Singer 27 with Sphinx decals today for $25. Cabinet needs some TLC one knob on drawer is gone. Head is frozen but doesn't seem to have much rust and missing front plate, as usual. On the good side, shuttle and 3 bobbins, almost new belt. G series. It's still in the van, so no pics yet.

    Here is a shuttle and her little bobbin. Not sure if that is the bullet bobbin you were referring to. Everyone starts learning somewhere. There are no stupid questions. Heaven knows I don't know a drop in the bucket about these machines.

    Happy 4th of July to everyone!

    I contacted a vendor about a metal darning foot for my Singer 301A. It took some doing but they were able to locate one and quoted a price of $30 plus shipping. That seems like a lot to me. Is it? :shock:

    Here is my Jones and Company Fiddle Base Treadle. I bought it about a year ago and not sure I ever posted it. Anyway, I may be reposting but now I am keeping a log of which pages my machines are posted on. Oh, I will have to go post it in the section for photos only also. I will also have to relocate the serial number and age of my treadle. It needs a new belt so I have not sewn with it yet. I have been making a lace cloth for it on my more modern embroidery machine. I enjoy this machine sitting in my living room.

    I don't really know much about it but the people are moving and need it out of the house. It was being advertised as a different model but I recognized it.
    Lucky you! You will love that machine! My favorite machine is my 15-88! Well, I shouldn't say that, as I love what ever machine I am using at the time I am using it! Like my horses I love whichever horse I am riding the most -- when I am riding that horse!

    Well, it is a 15-125, after all. I thought that she had advertised it wrong because it's black but all of the info, that I see on the internet about them, shows them as green. I guess I will have to dig a little bit more. Date of manufacture is June 1955. It really doesn't even look as if it's been used (decals are perfect) and the wiring is all in good condition. Along with it came a nice cabinet, some assorted attachments, 1 vintage pinking shears, vintage scissors, electric scissors, a Singer buttonholer in the dark green plastic box, a Singer zig zagger and a bunch of bobbins!!!!! All for $20.00. I still haven't seen the foot controller but I haven't had a really good look under the cabinet, yet.

    Wow, Cathy, you made out extremely well... Can I come shopping with you?

    I have a Singer 15-91, is there much difference with the other 15-(88, 125, etc)?

    Glenn; Love the decorations on your house and porch. I'll come visit but y'all need to make unsweetened tea for me and DH. I was stationed at Ft. McClellan, AL, (Aniston) 3 times while in the Army. Remember oh so well getting lightly sweetened tea when we asked for unsweet tea. Funny now but not then. Have a great 4th of July.

    The bullet shuttle is what they're referring to and long bobbin.
    The shuttle aka bobbin case kinda looks like a bullet.

    Lee, Thank you very much for posting this photo of the bracket.
    I'm going to have to keep a lookout for some type of vintage bracket. I like the look of the metal brackets!

    Thanks, Texas Jan, I'll check it out. Don't remember seeing that in the bobbin opening. Are they hard to find?
