    I really don't know anything about this machine. Does anyone know when these machines were made?

    Here's an A.G.Mason badged machine I just got on auction. It's not here yet, but here are the pics from the auction site. I think she looks pretty cool. Very Fancy Nancy, don't you think?

    Wow, your AG Mason is pretty... all decked out. How much did you win her for?

    This is our newest addition to the herd. Black 306 with everything you see in the picture for $20.00. If you can see the two manuals are for a 301 and the green covered one is written in Spanish. Next is a 99K. It has an odd foot pedal you work it from the side. Both machines sew great.

    A G Mason New Glenwood Arrived Safely

    Whoever packed this machine for shipping knows what they are doing!! Securely wrapped and packed in a box, then double boxed with secure packing material around the inside box. Great job!! Anyway, I digress....

    Here's the New Glenwood..I think it's a 3/4 machine...I haven't measured it, but it sure "feels" small. All the decos are in wonderful shape, and the machine overall is pretty clean. Does need some sprucing up on the bright metal and underneath, but otherwise not bad.

    Came with a box full (and I mean FULL) of attachments for it, including one of the much sought underbraiders. 4 sizes of hemmers, a ruffler!! Back slide plate (last picture) says A.G. Mason Mfg. Co. Cleveland OH and a serial number.

    Also, I posted pics of 2 pieces that I haven't a clue what they are (clamp and another piece). Anyone have a guess? I don't think they go with this machine at all. Anyway, here she is...Glenny.

    How about a neat old Pfaff - I'm not sure of the date - 1960s? It is a Pfaff 260 - the levers can be used to change the zigzag width as you sew - clever???

    I am fascinated by the works of the machine - look where they put the motor - two drive belts - I haven't plugged it in yet but I bet this one goes!!!

    miriam, can't you change the stitch width while ZZing with all machines? I do it when appliquing with my Elna. I haven't tried my few other ZZ machines.

    Hi .. I'm new here and do not like posting photo's, I'm on dail up...so it take forever ...

    I'll start with the standard as I find pic's of the others I'll post those..

    these is a long story behind this machine, ever hear of the applegate family ?? yes ? They ended up living 18 miles from me....knowing where it sent the last 46 yrs of it's life and had never been refinished, I believe this is the one. I knew the last owner , he was a collecter , did his own refisnh work, at the time of his death in maybe 1971/2, The only machine not refinished was the applegate machine... yes it sat in a horse barn since 1965 or so.

    talk about the dirt and spider do do. not kidding I had to scrub it with soap and water for a good 4 hours, until the dirt stopped turning the water bown;
    I have only seen three with metal drawer supports, this is the only one with the handles / pulls on the side, plus this has the elavator life. talk about a heavy machine.

    it is and was missing one drawer, I'm sure I'll have to make one to match those LOL

    The lotus . This one was a great story, started in UK.. came here via boat and in a treadle, made it way to mid west via a covered wagon, granny then had it coverted to electric, Then back in the wagon to oregon ... upon pick up the story changed to teh grannys sister and got a bit wilder ...Oooo I bought it off craigslist LOL and this is my hi $ machine, yep I ponyed up a 100 bucks for it he wanted 125...

    let me say this this machine was used very little if at all....the elec converstion must have been done by a singer dealer, they even change the hand wheel to one I have never seen, you'll say it's the same, but all elec handwheels that I have are just black no chorme.

    The singer is gold, on the bed the center decal is showing silver.... and around the beds edge, the green should have gold above it as most singer bed decals, those are flacking away, I see very few lotus's that still have those...

    Sphinx, from what I have seen there are 3 different design's of this one...

    no yarn to spin on this one. I will say to paid more than most would have, but I had to have one. upon seeing it at 10 feet you could not tell what the decals where. at 2 feet you could see a part of the head and tip of a wing...

    This machine was a lacquer thinner, sand paper, rubbing compound, and a complete tear down, by that I mean every shaft and bushing came out, it was a grease ball inside, Then the kitchen sink, every silver part took an acid bath. in other words I do everything they say to not do...

    I've been cleaning dirty rusted car parts for 50+ years, these machines are not a bit different to clean...
    what looks silver is, at the bottom of the column the decal is a bit silver that was done using palmolive dish soap, before it was nothing but that nasty brown stain

    I don't have a spare singer cabinet so she will be a looksee machine, plus it doesn't have a motor mount

    the red eye. This is #2 for me #1 is in a treadle , $25 outside was so so as far as being clean, the underside looked like new. This guy had another machine for 5 bucks, it's cabinet was in at least 5 pieces.. so why not ?
    if you can look very close at the singer tag, do you see anything wrong ? ok a hint look at the decal.. it must have been a monday morning machine,,, or the employee knew why the drawers have locks....



    the 5$ monkey wards streamliner and her cabinet in action again.. This is the early model, where the grill is a part of the front cover , later the grill was a add on part, even later they changed and the grill ran up the cover also...

    Makes you want to go on a train ride,,




    I'll add her sister ...from another mother... there both natoinals, this is a international rotary, both have built in motors that are not spring loaded and wheel driven, both had the same problem, but then they are the same machine with a body change...anyway both when used smelled like old hair clippers, cleaning the motor took about 15 mintues each they ran ok to fair,

    Notsureif, we aren't suppose to discuss machines on this site - it is a photo site, so come on over to the Vintage Shop where we can all ooooooh and aaaaaah over your machine! Thanks for posting photos and all the info about the machines! So interesting and fun to read about these old gals/guys!

Size:  1.41 MB Minnehaha. I think it's a branded Standard? This is my first treadle machine and I'm looking forward to getting it cleaned up and running.

    Do you know Muv has a really cool set of videos? Here is a link: http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...v-t167789.html grab a cup of tea and enjoy yourself!!! Be sure to watch all of them! The one you need is her video about the long bobbin.
