    Hello everyone, here are the pictures of the Edgemere, Sear Roebuck & Co. machine. Couldn't post yesterday our power kept going off everytime we turned on the computer. Storms in the area. This machine needs a lot of TLC but I think it will be pretty when cleaned.

    Here are pictures of a machine DH bought last weekend along with the Reliance. It is a Tru Sew 3/4 machine and he calls her half pint. She is a cloane to a singer 128. Made of Alum.

    Nice machines, crosstitcher. But where do you keep all the cabinets? I have one treadle in a cabinet and I don't think I'd have room for more.

Size:  149.8 KBMine is cleaned up and I stitched my first stitches last night. I'm even missing the same drawer that your machine is missing.

    Nanna up North, DH has a big shop and some are stored there for him to work on. I have several set up in my sewing shop and some are place all over the house. I like to switch them around so my sewing shop is set up like Monica's comand center.

    quiltingweb: you machine looks like it was made by Eldridge. Our Reliance and Edgemere are both made by Eldridge.

    What is the serial number on your machine?

    Hi ladies. I have what I think is an Eldredge. It is a portable hand crank tho and it's serial number is 2265238 and there is a small 7 up above it. I'm wondering what size needle it takes? I just got it a while ago and it was a serious rebuild. I have it all released and lubed but still need to do some tinkering. The vibrating shuttle is an Eldredge-E 3. It will need a complete paint job but I am very happy how it has come along. My front inspection plate has a Fleur-de-lis or a cross on it and the bobbin winder is above the stitch regulator. It sits in a small rectangular (kinda chubby) metal base. I am grateful for any guides or threading advice. Does yours have a snaked up spring for tension control? Thanks for all help.

    What does the base measure?
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    The base measures 6 1/4 by 13 inches measured from the top of the base. After more searching I think it may be a New Queen - National. I really need someone to tell me what it is tho. Thanks

    I'm not sure what it is but I have one something like it. This is a 3/4 size machine. Here is a picture of mine. It does need a makeover. Behind is a full sized Vindex Special. The Vindex Special is just like the one in front - just bigger. The Vindex Special was cleaned up using Glenn Cleveland's clean up and refinish methods. I love the results and it didn't take much time. I think he will be doing a tutorial soon.

    Poor little thing has been rode hard. This drawer is strange. It looks like felt {?} was glued inside. But the depth is ” less than the other drawers. Pieces of wood set-in about 6” up the front then solid to the back, about ” spacing between the pieces. Was there a purpose for this?

    well been gone for a week out of town but I've still been scouring CL and GW etc for deals. Going to pick up my newest find in the morning. I know nothing about these but looking up a few posts I see Miriam has a Vindex machine. This is a Vindex B.

    I just finished this one drawer, after I do something with the cabinet finish I’ll secure this lining and do the other 3 drawers. The paper worked great, it was not to thick to line the slots.Name:  CIMG0811.JPG
