    I am going to post BEFORE pictures of my vintage machines and then once I have followed Billy's cleaning tutorial I will post after pictures.

    This is a German machine. The only info I have is that Haid & Neu was taken over by Singer in 1958. The manual is in German and I do not know how old the machine is. I am thinking mid-40's based on what the person who sold to me said. If anyone has any info or experience with this particular brand of machine I'd love to hear about it. It is in its original cabinet, that also needs some TLC.

    A few years ago I found this beautiful White Rotary electric machine in a cabinet at our local thrift store and bought it for $8. At the time I didn't think it would be possible to restore it....the electrical cords are original and in terrible shape and it is missing the needle clamp....(it does have a tin box full of attachments!)

    I now realize that all of this can be fixed and am anxiously looking forward to cleaning the old girl up. I have not been able to find the missing part, though one fellow says he has one he can take off of another machine and sell to me.

    I don't know exactly what year model this machine is. I think it is a 12. How will I know if the needle clamp he is taking off of his other machine will fit mine? I'd also like to find its manual.

    If anyone has any info about either of these machines please PM me.

    I will be posting AFTER pictures soon!

    Early 1900's Standard Rotary sewing machine. The machine has too many patent dates on the bobbin cover to figure out which one is the correct date. When treadling a Standard, one must turn the hand wheel away from you to be able to pick up the bobbin thread. The Standard Rotary works like the White Rotary treadle.

    Here's my new-to-me Wheeler & Wilson No. 9 (Serial Number 80018). I found it on Criag's List. It's a beauty. In the drawer I found the glass presser foot, cleaned the glass and put it on the machine.

    I'm going to go slowly with the cleaning and do my best job. Then I will use this machine for quilting!

    I'd be interested to hear back from anyone who has a Wheeler & Wilson No. 9, and about your experiences with it, the good and the bad. Now there can't be any bad, right?

    I have a featherweight Singer that is working beautifully. I've named her Pearl as she was 'born' in 1941 just before they had to stop using chrome for decorations, I'm told, because the military needed it for something.

    Serial # AA558027 forgot to add -- these 2 are VERY heavy There is no way to turn it on yet.

    Derla, Beautiful machines; however, both are 99s which explains why they're so heavy. The AA 99 was allotted on Aug, 4, 1925, with a run of 25,000. The AD 99 was allootted on April 23, 1930, with a run of 10,000. Both were manufactured in Elizabeth, NJ. I'm sorry to burst your bubble byut I love my 99 almost as much as my featherweight. They are good solid machines and will sew denim (jeans) very nicely with right size needle and thread in them. I hope this helps. Chris

    Thanks Chris, for helping us out. I didn't think those were FW's. If they were dated as being allotted in the 40's wouldn't they have been a blackish finish? The chorem and japan was used for the war efforts. Like rubber, sugar and other commodities were withheld.

    I knew these were not Featherweights - What I want to know is can the parts on these 2 machines be interchanged to make one good machine that works?

    This is my FW

    Should work fine for parts.

    Derla, sorry I was confused by your post. Parts should be interchangeable; although Singer made proprietary things for their machines, parts from a 99 should easily interchange with another 99. It works on the 15s so think it would be applicable to the 99s also.

    That's ok Chris, My husband gets confused with the way I word things also -- maybe in my second life I'll even be able to write a good book.

    Still haven't gotten my husband interested in getting the 99s running - and I certainly am not talented in that way either. I really am eager to see how they sew.

    I was finally able to locate and purchase a Singer 401A that was local, only 20 minutes away. I don't like having machines shipped. I worry about them all the time they're in transit because some people don't pack them properly. Anyway, it's here and it's wonderful! I am so much in awe of how much the older machines can do. I thought we were so smart with our computerized machines, but the stitches this one makes are lovely. And it has two throat plates to switch, depending on whether you are zigzagging or straight stitching. Funny that the brand new Janome 12000 has the same feature.......Everything old is new again I guess:) Thanks for looking!

    I love the cabinet that your machine is in, way retro! The Singer 401s are fun machines to sew with!

    Derla, Singer 99s sew beautifully. Have a look at my thread "Look at this bobbin winder" - I've now got the machine sewing and it is brilliant. I don't know about sewing machine motors (strictly hand machines or treadles in this house!) but cleaning up a machine is not that difficult. I taught myself because I either had to pay 35 to a repair man or do without, and I couldn't possibly do without!

    Thanks so much. I got that at an estate auction where the couple had approximately 750 - 1000 sewing machines. All beautiful. I had already purchased one and DH said to try for this one. I was ready to drop out but I was encouraged to keep bidding and won out over an antique dealer/refurbisher. I have yet to figure out a name for her/him and so far the machine is silent aas to its name. Sews beautifully and this is the only one which came with a manul and attachments plus loads of bobbins.

    Thank you!! Fritz is the name. DD and I both like it. I am blessed with both a husband who understands my obsession somewhat and enables me with the obsession. DDs do not understand but cannot say much of anything - life is good!!

    Very nice machine and looks in very nice condition.

    Do you have pdf copy of this owner's manual?
    If yes, I would like to have a copy of this.

    Secondly, where do I find the serial number on my New Home Vintage machine.

    Thanks,
