    MisDixie,
    Your new featherweight is beautiful. My first black FW was also bought at a pawn shop and came with lots of goodies like yours did. I love sewing with my FWs, great for general sewing and piecing quilts.

    This is the Vogue Stitch Machine I bought at Goodwill for $12.00. It came with one foot, stiletto, and a seam ripper. It does have a foot pedal, cord, and sews beautifully after much turning and twisting all the dials. It weighs a ton. I'm hoping someone may have a manual or any info about it that they would share with me.

    Photos of Janis's Gritzner Durlach Hand Crank

    Janis mailed me photos of her Grtizner Durlach Hand Crank to scan and post them here. The mother of pearl inlay is beautiful.

    Thanks so very much Caroline for posting pictures of my Gritzner. Now I'd like to know if anyone else has one like it. Does anyone have any idea where the serial numbers are on it? I'm thinking that it is possibly late 1800's-early 1900's. Anyone have any onfo on this?

    I looked up Singer 401 & came up with a manual, how much it was then & now & when it was built. I got lucky. It has all the Cams, foot's, does free lance, embroidering, scallops Etc. Any one interested?

    Janis,

    The serial number is on the area surrounding the stitch length slide, which is on the far right of the bed. I can make out a few numbers when I look at your last picture.

    Thanks Mizkaki, for the information. Is the number 4 that I see on the plate around the stitch length part of the serial number? I thought they were part of the stitch length guide and didn't pay any attention to them. Now I guess I'd better! Thanks again, you have been so helpful!

    Yes, the numbers are stamped into a machined flat area on the bed.

I think I was looking for a more showy place for them. Does that mean that the numbers are stamped into the machine rather than on a plate attached to it? I think I need to look at it in better light than I had earlier.

    I have a beautiful Singer Model 99. It was born October 22, 1925 in elizabeth, NJ. It is considered a 3/4 size machine. As soon as I am allowed to post pictures and such I will.

    Here's my latest 99k...got 3 now....a foot pedal, a knee lever and now a handcrank. She hasn't been cleaned yet; all I've done is take her upper tension apart and given it a clean....she sews beautifully and I am so in love with her...so glad I added her to the herd though the treadle is starting to feel outnumbered and "closed in"! I got her on ebay for $50 AUS..from a lady who bought her years ago at an antique auction and had lost interest in it. The bentwood lid is in terrific condition except where my dog put a scratch on it with her humungous nails...grrrr maybe will polish out tomorrow when I do the clean up! The lady didn't know what a bobbin was, had no idea the plate slid open and was apologetic that it probly wouldn't work...huh...go figure.......

    They are such beautiful pieces of machinery that have been so important to people and families. I think the handcrank is a very therapeutic action..go figure, I'm a bit odd I guess. I was astounded that no-one else bid on it...are handcranks of that age not "popular"? Or is there maybe something blatantly wrong with it that my little naive eyes haven't picked up? Oh and Mike do you remember the spare knee lever for the 66k I have? Decided not to sell it in case I end up needing it myself....you never know what might pop up in the future!

Size:  241.5 KBGreetings all.I haven't seen any of posted here but I haven't looked through all the photo's yet either. It's a New Williams manufactured in Montreal Canada somewhere around 1893? I'd be very interested in purchasing the accessory kit and an original manual if anyone knows of any. The wooden coffin top and table are gorgeous and in good shape on this one as are the (still coloured) decals.

    I have a Phaff 332. Does anyone know if this machine can be fitted with a walking foot? I just took up quilting about 3 weeks ago.

    That Fleetwood is a Japanese 15 clone. Here is a link for more info on the clones:

    I understand it is a less common color. I saw one for $100. I'm sure prices vary a lot.

    looking to identify this machine, and know what year it was made. It belonged to my Great Great Grandmother, who died in 1942. I believe it to be an Eldredge or national Manufactured for the Charles William Store.Name:  600760_10200455638666696_1236639697_n.jpg

    Also, you can't see it in the photos, but it has the name Richmond across the front, that has worn off.

    I said I was done until my WG arrives unless something rare comes my way, but I broke down and picked this one up yesterday. After getting my Jones treadle from SteveH and absolutely falling in love with it (Jones is my maiden name) I found this one right over by my church and after talking to the lady, who brought it over here with her 30 years ago after being stationed in the AF with her hubby in England, she said it had to come home with me (She's a Jones girl also) so I picked it up yesterday. It has the user manual, a receipt from buying a pair of knickers from 1919 for 15 GBP, a handful of attachments, and it has the shuttle and bobbin. The slide plate has a patent date of 1893, and the serial number is in the 55000s. I'm guessing maybe 1893 or 1894 for the date. Either way she is stunning. She'll look lovely next to her big sister, as this one is a 3/4 size machine but the other is a full size.
