    Very nice! That's a different shape cabinet - really cool.

    My OSMG said that the 319 is a good machine to have because it was the first one that Singer made that had an built in zigzag, and did not require cams just to zigzag. You can look up the free manual, and believe you me, it is mostly how to combine those typewriter keys on top with the cams to make various stitches. The black ones are pretty, but I have a green one myself, and it is very interesting. Does the ad say you can contact a shipping company if you do not hear from any volunteer shippers? Make sure and check about the bobbin case too....they are expensive.

    Nice!! For the move...take the machine head out of the cabinet!! That thing weighs 30 lbs or so, and that old wood tends to be brittle...the bumps and vibrations are pretty hard on these old girls and the hinges often break when they're transported in one piece like that.

    Really nice machine, and I LOVE the cabinet!! :)

    MarieM, Pretty machine, but I love the Mission style cabinet. I have a soft spot for White machines and Mission furniture. Congratulations. You did good.

    This is the same exact machine that my grandmother sewed on for years! I learned to sew with her and the grandma next door! You will have such fun with her when you get set up in your new space.

    Love that style cabinet every time I see it. Both it and the machine look like they hardly need any work.

    Saw this wicked looking modified treadle on CL.

    http://oklahomacity.craigslist.org/atq/2617154788.html

    The phrase "it works" scares me.

    Funny you should post this as I was just getting ready to mount my old Craftsman table saw on a Singer base that is missing a few parts. It's sturdy and has wheels! Is the base a Davis????

    We have a friend who collects antique tools. He has several that are treadle operated. They actually were original. I was shocked and he said yup they powered saws by treadles back in the day. He had a jig saw he was letting kids cut cedar at a festival. (It's been a while....)

    The head is actually already out of the cabinet. We live 6 miles up in the mountains on a dirt road so I knew she needed to be out of the cabinet before I started up the road. When I was looking at it the head actually got caught on the cable that lifts it up. The seller said there is a screw that goes on the front of the machine that holds it to the hinges??? I haven't really looked at it so I'm not exactly sure what he was talking about, but DH and I will figure it out once we get moved and settled. If we can't I think there are a few hundred "friends" on this site who can advise.

    I'm not sure what was going on with that 128. From what I've read they were:

    "#128 normally portable with hand crank, knee control or electrified"

    The wooden top was missing from the box, and there is a hole the box bottom where there would have been a knee control, and the black metal part that covers the electric parts is gone, so I am thinking that someone removed the motor and the electronic stuff at one time for some reason or other. Or it was originally a hand crank and they removed that,which I think is less likely.

    So, I will be putting a hand crank on this one, it's too small to slip into my treadle base and it will be fun to have it be portable.

    Here is another CL find. Not for me, although if I didn't already have a slew of machines AND a Tiffany machine I'd be tempted. Here is a1920 Model 15-30 Tiffany in a Parlor Cabinet, $150:

    http://rochester.craigslist.org/atq/2631604415.html

    I believe last spring it was listed (looking at the address) for a lot higher by itself, now they are trying to move it with a garage sale. If it was this price back then, it would be sitting in my house right now!

    I gess it's too far to hop in the car and over from Oceanside, CA. I would so love to have this one. I've never seen a cabinet like this one. Shipping would be out of sight I'm sure. Never mind that I love this Vintage Thread Billy started, I can see I'm gonna get in trouble. Better lock up the CCs. :-)
