    My 306 Crinkle

    I guess it's time to start posting some pictures. This is a 306 Crinkle that I picked up today for $25.00. Needed everything adjusted and serviced but now it is sewing like a dream....Came with Cogs, table and seat.

    I have heard that they are noisey but this one is whisper quiet!

    I may need help with this one. I found it on Craigs List for free and could not pass it up, but it's locked up and there's no bobbin. Not sure what to do next for her.Name:  newhome1.jpg

    Get an old but clean mascara brush and check first for clogged up stuff - lint, broken needles, dried up grease and oil, etc. Get some Triflow oil - put one drop on anything that remotely moves. Jiggle it as you oil. Muv has a great video on the sticky: http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...v-t167789.html Her tutorial should be enough to get that machine serviced. That machine's exterior looks to be in good shape, you do not need Glenn's tutorial. Your machine looks like it runs on a treadle. Some of those machine's also have a little wheel to drive the balance wheel. Sometimes those get a flat spot or die. It looks like it needs a bobbin winder tire. This can further be discussed here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...ll-t43881.html which is also on the sticky.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Picked this one up from a goodwill auction and it arrived today. I was worried how she would arrive, but I was pleasantly surprised at how well she was packed. The case is pretty well trashed, but can be fixed, and I knew that, but didn't care about the case. They said the cord was cut so it couldnt be tested, but the cord that is cut is from the case to go to the wall. I can put it into a cabinet and it should be fine. The cords for the machine and foot pedal are intact and look just fine. After removing the bazillion layers of bubblewrap, and a quick wipe down with a babywipe to remove some dust, this is how she looks. I just love the pretty blue color! This is my second Japanese clone, and my 3rd Japanese machine all around, and likely the last one, as I'm now walking a dangerous line I think...Hubby didn't even notice (or if he did he didn't say a word) about the treadle I brought home on Friday...but he knows its there because he moved it on Sunday...

    My Singer 66 Lotus from ebay arrived today. Isn't she pretty?? She's sitting on a cabinet I picked up today from Goodwill for 2.50. Yes. 2.50. LOVE half price days. Excellent condition except the top which I will just refinish.

    Oh and while out running errands this one arrived on my doorstep from Goodwill. I have to do some more research to find out more about this one. I admit it was a guilty pleasure purchase because I adore the peacock decals, but it is in working condition except for a belt and some repair to the cord.

    There was also an envelope that had these instructions for sewing, and caring for your machine included...

    Ooohhhh my. I just looooove those Lotus decals. They are so graceful to look at as ones sews along. I have longed for one of them for years. It will look stunning once it is cleaned and polished up. Is it ... perhaps ... in working condition? No matter, the 66 is not hard to put right. Lucky you!

    OK, I admit it, I'm envious.

    It is in working order if i get it in a cabinet. Its non motorized. I have a singer base so i can make a.top for it and be good to go.

    So, will you treadle it or install a hand crank?

    The Free SM has lovely decals too, though one wonders just WHAT they were sewing with that bright pink thread!!

    Be sure to post pictures once they are cleaned up!

    The free most likely will sit pretty for awhile until i get my studio done. I wasnt planning or expecting her so not really sure. I dont have a hand.crank machine so that is a possibility.

    this is the treadle head i was given yesterday. Parisian serial number L219698. Shes smaller and lighter than any other heads i have. I picked it just because its something different from everything else i have. Now to find out more of her history. Looking at the plate with the serial number I have to wonder if it was made by Davis. Its identical to my NVF.

    Jennb,
    I have a black metal attachment box that looks just like yours. I would love to have a Free, the decals are pretty.

    Took a little drive today to the depths of S. Jersey, but I think it was worth it. 28 is not cleaned up yet, straight out of the "garage".

    A little 99k conversion to a handcrank. Wheel was notched and repro crank added--needs a little tweaking, but it works! I didn't want to cut into the cabinet, so the crank has to be removed before it can be folded back into the cabinet. She's a cutie pie.

    diamond in the rough? Looks like a lot of work to me though.

    Quiltingweb - that White looks nice.

    If I could go back in time one of the things I'd do is find out who started that "antiquing" fad where they painted things with paint that would crack and peal. I hated that when it started and I hate it now. When I found out who started it I think I'd strip 'em nekid and tie 'em to a phone pole then paint 'em with the antiquing paint.
    Then leave 'em for the bugs and critters to nibble on.

    If I had the funds, I'd take on the challenge of that machine and cabinet. But not at that price.

    I was at an estate sale and was looking at the old sewing machines. The man who was running the sale told me there was another one out in the barn. So, up to the the top of the barn we went...It was a White, crinkle finish, but it was electric. The cabinet was in rough shape. He said he'd give it to me...I said no at the time and now I kinda want to kick myself. I think the cabinet was a lot like this one, but thinking back, I think it was more dirty than anything...might have had a few mice living in its drawers...Anyway, I know this is not a photo, but the above post made me think of this. I've since heard that the white cabinets are hard to come by. I called him a couple days ago...he's going to have another sale...I'd like to see that White again.
