    Well, I cleaned my little heavy baby that I posted on here the other day. I took the motor and light off and am waiting on the handcrank that I ordered so that I can try to sew with a hand crank. I also bought an extra one for my 1898 singer Sphinx that was born the year my Grandma was. I now need to find room to put my beauties so that I can look at them and play with them. only the higher ups know when I will be able to go back to work, since the shutdown.

    Here is a picture of something I had never seen before.

    It is a removable thread cutter on my new early style Wheeler Wilson #8.

    It comes off when you change the presser foot, so I can see why they never survive.

    I had a Genie then my Mom wanted a machine for their TX winter home and now it's back in WI. My Mom uses her 1963 Viking most of the time but pulls out the Genie if the Viking is fussy. Nice to see one here.

    Here's the 301 I just got today. She sews and has all her original attachments, the manual and a zigzagger, all in great condition, considering she's 60 years old. She's kind of stinky. I believe she's probably spent at least several months in a humid area such as an attic or garage. The fact that a spool of thread on the spindle was covered with mildew was not a good sign. But I'm very pleased to rescue her from that before things got too far out of hand.

    Well at least the boxes and manual don't look to have suffered too badly! I picked up one of these in a cabinet that took off alot of the finish where it sat in its cradle.

    I bought a six drawer cabinet a few days ago, and it had a lovely 66 redeye living inside. Haven't touched anything yet, it needs a lot of work done on the veneer (which I didn't photograph):

    Born 18th December 1912, she's a genuine antique. The Muv'ing begins tomorrow.

    EDIT: Most exciting thing is the small selection of back-clamp attachments in the drawer: Never seen these before!

    Here is a machine you don't see everyday. Its a circa 1980 Singer Starlet 496. I keep this machine for its good zigzag stitch. Plus its light and pretty cool the way it all folds up into itself. Its just like a Singer Genie, but it has a free arm feature.

    This machine was made in France and came with a manual that was copyright 1980. The foot pedal and manual are stored in the slide out peace with the thread diagram on it. It weighs about 12 pounds I'm guessing and is mostly plastic but the free arm is metal.

    I have a Genie 353, my son claimed it for himself. Its a nice little machine, but weighs in at 20#.

    I cleaned up most of the head components for my Wheeler Wilson #10 this weekend.

    This machine spins SOOOOO smoothly, it is hard to remember that it was once rusted solid.

Size:  185.2 KBCould someone tell me how to use the zig zag on this machine? I see the knob but can't figure out how to move it and keep it in one spot. Thank you. This sews quietly and smoothly but I do need the zig zag. I am out to sew so will be back shortly to see if someone can help me on this. Thanks again.

    those fiddle bases are so cool, you never see them around where I live. If I ever find one for a decent price, I'll snatch it up just to have a piece of sewing history.

    What a coincidence! I snatched this one today. It's my second VS2 fiddle. A real beauty, and I love the fiddle bases too.

    sewbeadit - this is totally a guess on my part but in the picture it looks like there is an outer ring with a little silver tab just above the stitch length plate? Is that right or am I seeing it wrong? Can you unlock that outer ring then turn the zig zag knob then lock the outer ring again. It almost looks like the zigzag has a locking ring for the knob....hope that made sense.

    I believe you have the right idea
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Mike,
    The decals on your machine are in fantastic condition! There's one of these machines at the local antique mall type store, that's not as pretty as yours; the seller wants $450 for it. The cabinet needs a lot of work too.

    Thanks Sharon and Steve. I knew it was a bargain too and jumped at it: It's missing a caster, the kidney plate at the back and a locking tab (made of brass, locks it at the back) but otherwise in great condition and for only $150. After the briefest of cleans and some tri-flow she's as smooth as a new one. I think my zigzaggers and buttonholers will work too! Makes this machine not just a pretty face but a usable pretty face
    Took the kidney plate from my other VS2 (which is just plain black, since I just finished painting it). Now have to match up the decals by painting them on! Oh what fun.
