    Hope you get it!! You'll love it!
    I don't know. I was out bid once, so we will see.
    I considered it, but my DD would think I was crazy to send her from Akron. Even from her in-laws in Columbus it's a drive, but I thought someone from here should get it. Fingers crossed for you! :)

    Here are a few photos of the aforementioned mystery Empira machine. It seems to be moving freely and smoothly. I just have to reattach the belt.

    Has anyone heard of this machine? I have looked all over on the web and have found nothing, spare a quote on Google books about a lawsuit involving an Empira Sewing Machine Company!
    That is a gorgeous machine and it looks like it is a 3/4 size like the 28/128.

    I really want this machine but I have no place to put it.
    There is always room for one more. I now have one in my kitchen.
    You know, at the moment, my kitchen is the only place I don't have a sewing machine... uh... hmmm... guess I don't have one in either of my bathrooms. I do have quilting magazines in there though! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    There is one screw to remove the hook assembly, unscrew that and you can get the hook out. Once you have it out clean it all up and check for a burr on the hook; put a drop of oil where on the back of the hook on the flat part.
    I have a 15-90. If you need more instructions just ask.

    Son called me from Arizona today, asked me how much a 1917 New Home in a "decent" treadle cabinet was worth. LMAO! Thought I'd taught the boy better than that...told him between $50 and $100, depending on condition, etc. after I told him to check for the slide plates, shuttle and bobbin, and to make sure the handwheel turns....

    It seems he's buying it for ME!! How he plans to get it here might be interesting.... :lol:

    I think I am getting an industrial treadle from Cali if the funds are right. I have been spending more money on medical bills tan I have anything else around here and its starting to eat into my play money. :|

    I'm pretty sure I read on here that machines can be treadles if they have the groove in the hand wheel for the belt. If it doesn't have a groove it can't be treadled? I have a 66 in a treadle base, but I can't get the belt to stay on....I don't believe there is a groove in the wheel. Was this once an electric (I have an electric that runs great)? Are the hand wheels interchangeable...can I even try to make this machine work??

    I have a Necchi-Alco as well; mine is a Japanese class 15.

No plate to cover the bobbin area. No bobbin. No manual. It does have the cord & pedal. There is some kind of double plug-in on the pedal cord. Anyone know why that might be? (Sorry, no pictures.)

    Go; you'll have a wonderful time. I would love to attend this one sometime, but once school starts up, my TOGA days are over--I can only make the summer ones!!

I also have two Featherweights I use for piecing, and I recently bought two Singer 99s (at least one is getting a hand crank conversion). I also picked up a lovely Universal (a Japanese Singer 15 "clone" that I'm planning on using as a "project" machine. My husband is really interested in learning how to repair vintage machines, and we're planning on attending all 4 days of the RRTOGA.

    Miz Johhny; how do we find out where the TOGAs are in our areas? I'd like to go to one but how do I find out about them? Thanks in advance. ~ Chris

    The person that has a chance to get a Two Spools for $30, just make sure it have a spool can and spool for the can. If it does, buy that machine tomorrow. You will love it for piecing.
