    I adopted 3 machines today. This whole fascination with old machines started when I went to an estate sale and bought my first treadle. I brought it home and cleaned it up and, you're right, it's been attracting friends. So, the man who had the sale, had another sale and tried to sell the remaining machines. When they didn't sell, he called me and told me I could have the three that were left, but I had to take them all.

Size:  143.1 KBOne is a White, although it looks like a BLACK with all the dirt and grime, frayed wires, etc. The second is a Kenmore 158.330 and the last one is an Emporium, made in Japan. I'll post over on the Machine Shop thread if anyone has comments or can tell me what kind of mess I've gotten.

    Bennett has a White just like that - you might have to look at all the pages to find it on here though - she did a very nice job cleaning that one up. Those old Kenmore machines are old and reliable unless they have been abused. The Emporium is anybody's guess - clean it up and see what it does. Do all the knobs turn?

    So far, all of the knobs turn. I think the two machines, the Kenmore and the Emporium by DeLuxe are very similar. Evidently, both are made in Japan. Name:  cardinal Aug 2012 075.JPG

Size:  150.2 KBBobbins are similar. The Emporium is the first and the Kenmore second. I haven't plugged anything in yet, and I wouldn't dare plug in the White. I have a White Rotary Treadle, and they are very similar, except this new one has the crinkle finish, but they look alike in many other ways. It is SO dirty..."Dirty White Boy..."

    There is something very satisfying in cleaning those old machines up and making them run.

    I have really enjoyed seeing all these photos! It's fun to see all the different SMs that people use to make their quilts and projects. Let's see if I can post a few of mine.

    This 66K hand crank is probably my oldest one, from 1918. I could not resist its lovely decals. My SMG put it into working order, but I haven't used it yet. My 201 is a centennial model which just purrs. It originally came in a dome covered case, but I was able to find this cabinet and with a little help, install it too. I will have to clean the bobbin winder, but otherwise, it is wonderful.

    The next two are 301s from the 1950s too. The black one was my first vintage model which comes with me to my Quilts of Valor meetings. I love it because it makes a perfect stitch and is so portable. In fact, I like it so much i got another one, the light beige and oyster white model which was made about five years later. With these, I feel no need for a Featherweight! In addition, we also have a model 127 which belonged to my hubby's grandmother. He hasn't quite finished working on the cabinet, but the irons and head are ready to go. My other SMG put that one into working order after a looooong (40 year) nap. Can't wait to put her together and learn to treadle. I think she goes back to 1928.

    And speaking of long naps, it's time for me to hit the sack. It's been a long day, and as much as I love talking SMs, I DO need my beauty rest!

Size:  1.30 MBCan you tell me about this little baby? It's in perfect condition, but the serial number looks ground down and restamped. Is it reconditioned? It has a great bent wood cabinet, the cord feels brand new, motor hums...but there's something wrong. The wheel slips so the shuttle won't move back and forth smoothly. I think I need to take off the hand wheel and check to see that it's attached properly. A friend gave it to me. He's had it since his mother passed away more than 10 years ago, not sure where she got it or why she had it.

    Found at an estate sale for $23. It was VERY dirty when I got it, rather stiff, but it's been sucking up the oil and now it wants to sew!

    So how old is your Eldredge Two Spool, Lee? I see that the second spool goes in the bobbin area! Who woulda thunk?!

    Startella, I don't see too many of these. Is the 101 a predecessor to the 201? I'm wondering what kind of bobbin it uses. Sweet machine.

    Don't know how old the machine is, need a website to look up the serial number. Maybe robinA has an idea on the age of hers, which has a lot lower number.

    i bought this sewing machine about 7 years ago off of ebay and went and picked it up near atl. i have never gave it a good cleaning since i bought it. other than the outside of the cabinet so it wont dry and become brittle. it may be just layers of dirt over the decals, or maybe they are just that faded. maybe its time i get to cleaning! it did come with a couple of attachements. i bought the key off of ebay so the drawers can lock. and a few bobbins came along with it to. i bought it from the original owners granddaughter. my husband tried it right after we bought it, and it does work. or did then.
