When you do a ZZ on it the needle stays to the left and swings to the right for the ZZ. Strange setup, I know. I still don't know why iot would have two spool pins on it though. I assumed it could do a double needle too until I saw how it went from Straight to ZZ.

    I'll bet it can use these http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kenmore-Sewi...item2ec1331147 Notice that the shaft is over the left needle instead of centered.

    I used to have a Kenmore that had that left needle thing...I never could get used to it! Anyway, this is the double needle that came with it new.

    This thread has morphed into the Vintage Sewing Machine Shop! Please go and read the first post on the first page again, where the purpose of this thread is outlined. It's for PHOTOS and brief description of the machines we HAVE. It is not for discussion, looking for machines, looking for parts, or any other chit chat. The thread began to deteriorate around page 70... Lets take the other talk back to the Vintage Sewing Machine Shop where it belongs and leave this thread for photos, as was intended.

    So, I picked up this machine. http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/atq/3482202015.html

    $50, Weird table, It is a W&W12. Think it is worth putting up a thread with a dozen or so photos?

    I picked up the second of this pair of 128's from late 1921 and early 1922 this weekend. Both machines are still in progress but getting close to being done.

    Sewbizgirl is right. This shop was set up to be for photos only. Let's please take the discussion to the Vintage Shop. Photos only here! We don't want the photo section to turn into 2,000 pages of text!

    Steve, are you going to do a full restoration on the WW No. 8 like you did on the Elias Howe? It would be another one of your interesting threads to follow.
