    Not yet. It is a White Family Rotary, that's all I know at this point. I was able to purchase a replacement motor on EBay which already has the part on it. When it arrives I will post a couple of pics.

    This part may be a candidate for my shop to fabricate up a few copies....

    Hi everyone,
    Sorry its been so long since I posted last, been ill with MRSA; its all cleared up now. Yippee!!!
    Today I finally found more bobbins for my Pfaff 60 treadle. It takes a class 15 bobbin, but it has to have a slit in the bottom of the bobbin so that the pin on the bobbin winder will engage properly. I thought that part was broken, until today I got a good look at the only bobbin that came with it. I'd been using Singer class 15 or old Bernina bobbins and they work fine to sew with, but not to wind a new bobbin. My local Pfaff dealer worked with me and gave me several bobbins to try out.
    Currently making Bonnie Hunter's latest mystery quilt with the Pfaff treadle, "Easy Street". No more triangle points being gobbled by the greedy Pfaff 1222E electric zig zag.

    SteveH,
    Congrats on being a Grandpa. I love the White Rotary too!
    treadling happily in central Texas,
    Sharon W.

    Sharon that MRSA is horrible. I hope you are all better. Glad to hear you are feeling up to messing with machines and back to quilting again. I wondered where you had been.

    My little toy machine I picked up this weekend. I may see about doing a full restoration on this one. She appears to be in working order.

    That is the first order of business. It should say Junior Miss on the top as well. I found some good photos online of restored or pristine condition ones. My partner and I have been searching for a good graphic artist to do some work on our waterslide decals so I may see if I can add this to the job list.

    Well, this has been quite a week. I just got a good review and a raise, and I got an opportunity to buy a Singer 241-12 working for $100. Timing is everything.

    I have one of those 241s - mine was full of beads of dried up oil everywhere - a raise would be nice...

    Jenn, that little thing is very cute! You should put the before and eventually "after" photos in the TSM shop! http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...t170590-4.html

    If nothing else, this one lets you download it.
    Steve, I don't think I have ever seen a model 20 with a motor? I have 2 of them, did you add the motor? Your model 20 needs to be posted in the TSM shop also, along with the video! So cool!

    1. We are talking about the little cast metal "dogbone" looking thing that some early electrified machines use which allows the motor to swing from "in use" mode where a wheel on the motor shaft is in contact with the handwheel to "in storage" mode where it swings into the space under the arm.

    2. The only one I have currently is cracked into two pieces. one half is currently "fused" to the motor side. I am PB Blaster'ing the screw that holds it.

    3. Does anyone have one that is removable?
    a. If so can I get a series of photos of it with a ruler next to it?
    b. could I borrow one from someone to make a mold and at cast a resin model

    Nope, it is original.

    According to page 3 of the "Adjusters manual for Model 20's" it says Model 20-1 and 20-10 are hand crank, Model 20-2 is an Electric.

    She ALWAYS gets "oohhhh's and Ahhhh's when I hit the switch, even from other Guys. The line is invariably "Ok, so THAT is cute..."

    What amazed me is that fact that the original plug and cord are in incredible shape. The cord feels like fresh rubber. It feels like it came out of a time machine.

    The ONE negative is that it is currently using a rubber o-ring as a drive belt. I have seen an OLD photo and it looked like the original belt was a square profile. NO idea what material, I assume rubber.

    Steve,

    If I'm understanding you, I have this piece on a machine. Are you coming to the TOGA on saturday? If so, you can check it out then.

    I wish. Nope.

    Saturday I will be (hopefully) driving into SF to buy a Singer 241-12 and then going to my company's holiday party.
