    Redsquirrel,

    Your 99 is in very good condition! The decals appear to be totally intact! Congratulations! She's a beauty!

    Hi dnorton, thank you for answering. There is a little silver tab there and I tried using it and all it does is flop. I can turn the knob but the silver thing just flops, so if I hold the knob with my hand I get a zig zag and I was wondering if that is what that silver thing was supposed to do. What gets me is I bought this machine as a reconditioned machine. Right now I need to find another belt for it because the belt broke. So won't be sewing with it for a while. I was happy with the way it did sew but not happy finding out it doesn't work properly!

    Beautiful, I got to see a museum in former East Germany that switched from making guns to sewing machines. Regretably it was before I knew how much I liked the old girls.

    If you bought it as reconditioned you should be able to take it back and have them either fix it or show you how it works. Likely, you have to pay for parts like the belt.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I have one machine that similarly mistified me, found that you actually need to either push or pull the knob at the setting you're wanting. maybe?

    I may be able to help there. If I get the time today to check my files, I think I have the original Singer Patent for that decal set which includes line art of the designs. it'd be a good head start to correct. Also Let me know if I can be of assistance with the "brass bit"

    This is my White Treadle FR out of it's cabinet which is a twig style only it has been painted an awful enamel black.
    I have a second cabinet but unfortunately it has a different opening so I can't trade them out unless my hubby and son can to an "under pan transfer" and an opening modification.
    As you can see the machine isn't in bad condition but the decals are half off. Funny thing is that the center of the bed should have a decal but it looks like someone removed it in the past and left light gouges and one deep gouge in it's place!

    This is the cabinet that won't fit my machine...I have never seen one online like this before.
    Wondered if someone cobbled together parts to make it a married cabinets? It does have White on the treadle which isn't visible in this photo.
    Any ideas?

    Well when Glenn was here we tried to make bastard cabinets as Glenn calls them. It is a LOT of work and not very good results. I think I posted somewhere on QB some pics - I hijacked someone's thread. AH there is is... http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage-antique-machine-enthusiasts-f22/my-new-$11-legs-t232419.html I don't know why but it doesn't make a link.

    I've seen several like this one. Some of the Whites have the "Mushroom" style cover plates, others are flush with the machine base. I'm sure you'll find another twig cabinet. It will certainly pop up just after you've done all your modifications!

    I consult the oracle Google.... Google has a virtual copy of the patent Database scans and you can search them.

    go to Google patent search and search for sewing machine and you get 4,960,000 matches!!! you need to be somewhat specific to find things....

    This is called a Post Leg Vise. It is blacksmithing vise where the leg is mounted to the ground so that the force from hammering is contained. Most Vises bounce when you drive any real force, these do not.

    Most go for a couple hundred bucks in intact condition!

    My most recent acquisition, of unknown Japanese manufacture without a JAnumber originally with a "Capri" decal that came off with all the nicotine. Has been CLAd, rewired, and loaded with V-69 polyester to fabricate outdoor cushion covers for my daughter.

    I thought that I would share a few of the machines I have been working on recently. Most of them are not mine.

    Thank you Mike. I have to admit that I was a little disappointed in how the handwheel came out, but everything else came out well.
    That one had the Coffee grinder attachment. I have done a couple of other Pfaff 130's without it and I liked how they ran. The one with the coffee grinder had a tinny sound when it ran because of that attachment. Does anyone know if that is normal?

    My bad. The Pfaff that I posted was one without the Coffee Grinder attachment. This is the one with it before I cleaned it up. It is the part on the back where the light would go normally.

    I was completely perplexed until I looked this up. For everyone else, the coffee grinder attachment is embroidery-related and doesn't grind coffee
    If it were a Necchi I wouldn't have questioned it!

    My dad loves to fix and restore things, as do I, but he has more space for it. Soo... when I bought Miss Rosie last week, I delivered my six drawer to him for storage. I said to wait until work finished for the year and I'd come over and restore it, but he couldn't wait! Here she is after only one week.

    I'd already Muv'ed the machine head but the cabinet is all his work. He took everything apart, re-glued, re-attached, re-screwed and the only thing he couldn't get perfect was the veneer, so I'm buying a leaf this week. I do love a job well done. We're probably equally proud of each other. Now if only there were money in this business.

    What a lovely cabinet your Dad did a wonderful job. I love the lighter oak finish and I will use it for inspiration for DH when he gets to work on my cabinet!
