    Skip, you have one of those lovely ladies as well?? It's a beauty..... keep us posted on her progress. She looks pretty great right now but I know you'll put the magic touch on her.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Hello, I have a Pfaff Treadle machine. The serial number tells us that the machine was made ​​in 1902 (http://www.ismacs.net/pfaff/pfaff_ma...ure_dates.html).
    But I don't understand what model is this? And how much is this sewing machine?

    I am starting work on a Free Westinghouse that was in a cabinet. It has the strangest knee controller I have seen. Before yesterday, I had not even seen a picture of this one.

    Singer 15-91

    DH did his normal "take apart, clean and put back together"routine. The machine has been rewired, the light housing was cracked and DH epoxied it back together (picture shows crack better than in real life). Foot pedal and cord are dirty, but sound- and genuine Singer.

    Serial number AH672621, makes it a 1948 vintage.












    This has a motor, housing and assembly off a 201, so the decal is different. The one on this machine was in much worse shape. DH had the motor all apart and had to scrub and scrub to get all the old grease and crud out of it.

    This machine has too much wear for me to consider it in the "collector" category, but it should make a fine using machine. I'm going to sew on it for a while this weekend to make sure.

    This one may already be spoken for, though we have another 15-91 out in the shed. My goal is to have all the machines OUT of the shed before the snow flies.

    I hope I didn't offend anyone by saying that. I just had a sudden vision of being electrocuted by sewing machine.

    In the condition it's in? It's not worth much... My kids bought me a Pfaff treadle, 1910, in great condition with decals, treadle, etc. intact, for $150.00 last Christmas.
    That the machine moves freely is a plus, and makes it a candidate for refurbishing, altho it would cost more to refurb than it would be worth on the resale market. Guess it all depends on what you want to do with it. I'm not sure what model it is...one of the "letter" models. (Model H, Model K, Model L for examples)
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Getting back to posting pictures of my collection - here are the two 15's. Still have not located an older 15 treadle.

    Here is the 15-90. So far, this is my favorite 15. 1945 vintage



    And the 15-91, 1952 vintage



    Cabinet needs some TLC - someone left an iron sitting on it for a bit too long. Not sure if I'll try to fix that or not- it's kind of neat . . .

    Singer 101, 1922 vintage. The stitch length is the nob on the bed of the machine. Notice the pull chain for the light.



    The underside - quite different than other Singers of this era



    The controller is built into the machine, and the knee bar mounted in the cabinet pushes a rod into the machine to activate it.

    And the potted motor on the back



    This machine was considered high end and came with an extended set of attachments. I've acquired a hemstitcher with the appropriate plate also.



    It came with the darning foot and feed cover. I don't think this would work for quilting though.





    And the cabinet specifically designed to house this machine.

    Singer 201 1948 vintage



    This one has Pride of Place in my Queen Anne cabinet.



    I love the drawers and compartments inside.

    So do I. The cat seems quite fond of them too. Nice machines! I have a question about the 101. Does it spill oil out of the central oil pan when you tilt it into the machine?

    I've wondered about that oil and tilting, too. I recently acquired one with a bottom like that. Mine is pretty dried up.

    While DH oiled everything up well for testing, he did not put any oil in the reservoir. I see no evidence of any dripping on the dust cover for the cabinet, so it does not look like it ever dripped. Though that may only mean no one else ever added oil to the reservoir either.

    This is DH's least favorite of my Singers - based on working on them, not using them.

    DH's words - minus any expletives - Compared to the 66, 15 and the 201, the 101 is not easy to service. Everything seems to be in everything else's way, so you are taking off stuff you'd rather not have to, to get at something else.

    The controller built into the machine adds complications - especially if it does not work. You also can not easily rewire it to get around the male/female pin electrical connection. The oil reservoir system is a poor way to get oil where it needs to go. Since Singer did not use much of this on any future machines, it's likely they thought so too.

    We could not test this machine until we had it back in the cabinet. It runs at one speed - medium slow. No feathering at all no matter how far you push the lever. Have no idea if that is normal or not. DH is going to look at the controller at some point to see if there is anything he can do about that. We've run into a few pedals that had two speeds (you can tell because of the contact points) while most are more variable.

    I'm very happy to have the machine, DH is very happy there is only one like this.

    Just bought, cleaned oiled and adjusted a baby blue Deluxe Princess, only difference i stitch length selector. It's very forgiving, I mistakenly stuck in a 66 bobbin, and it sewed! :-)

    Uh oh...2 more. Up to 12 already and it's only been a month!

    Is there a 12 Step Group for this obsession?
    This New Home "Light Run ning" has an interesting "convertable" feature. Maybe some one else can give me some more information? The cabinet and base are in excellent condition. The base has holes for the treadle belt to pass thru, but it also has a swing away New Home motor. A neat little slide open compartment, which fortunately contained a few shuttle bobbins. I probably wouldn't have bought it, but for the case, and the posts here.
    The other purchase, from the same vendor, was a Singer 15-91. I paid $100 for both. The 15-91, included another bobbin slide cover and an extra bobbin case. It wouldn't turn, the reason being, it had the wrong handed bobbin case, the one in the accessory compartment was the right one. Very light cleaning and some Tri-Flow oil, and it was stitching fine. All that during my lunch break!
