    Quick question - how does the harp space compare between a 301 and 15-91? I'm still wanting a machine with more space.

I'd really like that and the "self sewer" that is attached to the gauge (different from the quilter guage).
    Wow Randa, I love your Davis. And since that is the Davis New Vertical Feed, you will be able to use regular 15x1 needles! What a lucky find! You will love sewing with her!

    That is so cool Randa! Your machine is a little newer that mine!

    Could you take a closer photo of the certificate or scan it and send it to me so I can have a copy for my research?

    That is a wonderful machine and I am amazed at how well it was taken care of!! You should be very proud.

    Billy
    Here you go, Billy!!

    Ok Miz Johnny and Billy I have been sewing with my New Home Light Running machine posted on page 482! Guess, how I did it since that machine takes a special short needle that is extinct? My husband cut off the top of a Schmetz Microtex Sharp needle. It sews perfect! Of course, I have to turn the wheel as it has no motor! What fun!

    Nancy

    And I love all the pictures of all the machines! I have been busy sewing all day -- when, I finally get time to look into the shop I had 4 pages to read! Wow! Love it!

    Maybe this will help determine model...it compares 15s based on their bobbins

    And here's a great review on 15-91

    They're asking $730. I think it's cool!

    Sharon, I love the looks of this treadle. I don't think I've ever seen one with a coffin top quite like this one. Is it possibly from England?[/quote]

    Miz Johnny,
    I don't know. I am so pleased with it, makes treadling so easy; no clanking at all. :-D
    The people I bought the coffin top from didn't give me any history on it.
