    Steve love your White Model A. I just peeked into this "Photo" shop to see eye candy. There is so much 'text' in here now it is hard to tell which shop we are in! Let's please keep this to photo's or it will become just like the Vintage shop with far too many pages to go through! Sorry, I shouldn't be commenting in here either and I don't mean to sound nasty, but this is a PHOTO shop, let's please go to the Vintage shop to talk! Page one has the rules for this shop!

    I have this same machine already, but as a hand crank. I'm going to trade Steve the HC in exchange for the treadle cabinet and he'll have his machine as he wants it and I'll have mine as I want it!

    Thanks, Steve. I sure hope she turns out to be a work horse! She makes a pretty straight stitch, so I may use her for piecing occasionally.

    Just picked this one up. Wasn't in the market for this model ... but couldn't pass it up for $35.

    Needs a slide plate over the bobbin area. The wood on the top will need to be worked a bit as they had it positioned in the sun. Drawer full of bobbins and a bobbin case in one of the drawers, as well as a belt - but no attachments. Will need needles as well. The drawer assembly on the left side is loose and will need to look at that - think it just needs to be fixed to the screw hole in the irons. Irons are in great shape. I haven't lifted the machine up, but everything moves freely from the top and I looked underneath with a flashlight and didn't see any glaring problems.

    SN FR2470727 ... best I can find so far is between 1914 and 1917

    Any recommendations to source the missing slide plate? I saw one on E-bay but wondering if there are other sources. I checked Sew-Classic but didn't find one.

    Oh ... I'm "guessing" that the bobbin winder operates by positioning so the groove fits into the treadle belt??

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Love the blue Kenmore and the yellow brother!! The last Kenmore you have listed I *think* is the model I learned to sew on at home.
