Welcome to the QB. I don't collect ( says the woman with 6 machines, don't use the serger very often though) but I sure do like to look at them and that's different what you posted there. Does it have cams?

Default Two Spool Eldredge (National Sewing Co.)

Hi, I just picked this beautiful machine up from the factory in Belvidere, IL where it was made and where it's always lived. If possible, can someone point me in the right direction to identify the year it was built and where I could find a manual to help use the tin of attachments that came with it.
I have the user's manual and discovered the spool size needed for the bobbin case is 50.... but beyond that there's very little to be found. I've gone through all the Wikipedia info.

Welcome, LDYoungman. I don't have one of these, but sure would like one to wind old wooden spools with fresh thread. A couple of links that may be of interest regarding this machine can be found at http://needlebar.org/main/manuals/el...ol/1index.html and https://2spools.blogspot.com/

There are several threads here on QB regarding Eldredge or National Two Spool machines. There are also some youtube videos including https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeO-BG6xoOU

Fantastic! Thank you for giving me a better starting spot. Randomly searching was getting me the same information over and over- lol

Default My latest addition, NECCHI BU

So, I finally got this machine oiled and motor cleaned. I was wondering about the wiring and if this was a typical method and if anyone has updated a wiring setup like this before?

thanks,

I'm not sure, what you are asking. I don't think I've seen a "motor block" like that. I'm guessing that the single plug goes to the electrical outlet. I think I would get something like https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/po...and-motor.aspx and hook the foot controller to the open wire. Then plug the motor and light into the outlet in the middle of the cord.

I have been able to open a few up and replace wires. Many aren't nice enough to use screws and some use rivets to close the blocks. If you have doubts about laying with electricity, the ones that Janey shares looks good.

Some are even labeled well. See below.

Default Frister and Rossman?

I bought this at an auction (very cheap) and got it stitching nicely, but not sure what it is as there are no names anywhere. The brsss badge looks like it may be covering something up but don't want to force it off.
Serial number is 878999
Any ideas?

Welcome, catleugh. The Frister and Rossmann machines were transverse shuttle machines as shown at http://needlebar.org/main/survresult...ann/index.html Your machine is a vibrating shuttle machine. Needlebar used to have a picture gallery that was a good resource to peruse to see many decals and badges for sewing machines.

Actually, the brass badge might be helpful to identify the manufacturer. It seems like I have seen that badge before, but don't remember which company it belongs to. Maybe a better picture of the badge would help someone else identify your machine.

I'm pretty sure that it is a European manufacturer as those had a stitch length regulator that has a lever and lines/numbers to indicate the stitch length. In the US, the stitch length was usually adjusted by turning a knob. Some of them did have something that would move up and down, but the early ones didn't have numbers associated with them.

This looks like a Jones Hand crank to me. It is the same machine I have made by Jones in England
