    I forgot to mention that on the Singer 15BG168, I have a bobbin winder from my Singer 15-90, different decals. It is seen in the second photo. I switched the bobbin winders since this machines winder works much better than the older Singer 15s winder and the older machine stitches much nicer than this one. I use the older Singer 15 for my free motion quilting. One day I will take the time to get this one to stitch just as nicely as that older Singer 15.

    The latest addition to my addiction.

    Singer 40k Hand Crank Child's Chain-stitch machine
    with original case.
    ..an ebay find @ $16.25 plus $10.80 S&H
    (I was amazed that it sold for so little.)
    It should arrive in about a week!

    I'm hoping that my DD4 will be able to learn on this machine.
    The modern plastic one I bought her at Joann's was junk.
    My plan of teaching her on Great-Grandmonther's model 15 is still out there for when she's a bit older.

    Now... I just have to find 24x3 size 11 needles.

    Purchased this Singer Treadle from friend months before I could pick it up. Only saw photo so didn't realize the whole cabinet had been painted. I refinished cabinet & cleaned machiine but not really using it yet. New belt had to be adjusted.Hard to wind the one bobbin . Cabinet and machine were well used but the price was right and I found room for it.

    Singer 128 Serial#G4169383 Born March 30, 1910 (I think)

    Such trouble with photo's

    Great job redoing the cabinet. Mine is in a portable case (not original)

    Pics of the "Century" treadle I'm picking up tomorrow. Paid $50 for her. Have been researching the "Century" brand and know that she was made by Davis. Don't know much else right now.

    I do need some shuttle bobbins for her if anyone has any for sell.

    I'm so excited!!

    Phyllis. .WOW that Mission White cabinet is one of the most sought after FR cabinets out there. The missing pitman for it shouldn't be all that hard to find. I'd check with the folks at TreadleOn site, and also with the Yahoo vintage white sewing machine group. They may have some answers/parts for you. TreadleOn in particular has get togethers around the US where folks part swap/flea market, etc. Great resource for parts for old White or badged White machines. Good luck. GREAT cabinet find!

    Thank you to everyone who took part in the Vintage Machine Riddle. Congratulations to Vintagemotif, who spotted that it has the Indian Star decals, and was therefore able to solve the riddle.

    This machine is a 1934 Singer 128K, with the Indian Star variation of La Vencedora decals, which means that it was manufactured for export to India. In each point of the star the word Singer was written in a different Indian script. I have checked this out on the Needlebar website, which lists the eight different languages as Hindi, Onya, Singhalese, Urdu, Gujarati, Kannada, Telugu and Malayalam. Don't ask me which is which.

    This is the second Indian Star machine to appear on this thread. The Sphinx machine belonging to Kathie on page 8 has the star also.

    This machine is my latest Youtube star. I have used it for the latest video - How to Adjust the Tension on a Vintage Long Bobbin Sewing Machine - on the Muvandfarve channel. We filmed the first test of the stitch ( a hold-your-breath moment) and it performed beautifully!

    I'm already in love with this machine. We don't tend to get Singers with red decals here - Red Eyes are American - and the Indian Star makes it extra special.

    It dawned on me that I hadn't put a picture of "Fannie" here yet...
    She's a 1934 White Number 8, with a vibrating shuttle. Evidently they only made these models for a year or two, so they aren't a common machine. Side clamp attachments, and the bobbin winder has a separate belt. The machine runs on a friction wheel attached to the motor, then you attach the belt to wind the bobbin.

She sewed on it every day for almost fifty years. I was so delighted when she gave me her machine! It has several embroidery stitches.

    The second is my Singer Featherweight, affectionally named Miss Anise. I bought her at an estate sale and she's the loveliest little machine ever. Cute as a button and sews a beautiful stitch.
    I got my singer red eye 66 1921 G9073022.Her name is Bertha,thats where I got her.

    My SIL mother passed away several months ago and she gave me her two machines, this one, 1920 Minnesota A (Sears knockoff), and a 15-91. I have been using Billy's tute and practicing dismantling and cleaning the Minnesota A. It is just like Charlee's machine in that the bobbin winder has a separate belt. The machine runs on a friction wheel attached to the motor, then you attach the belt to wind the bobbin. It appears to have been a treadle that was retrofitted with a Kenmore motor, sort of jury-rigged. But it has been a fun learning experience and now I am ready to tackle the 15-91.

    I'm having the devil's own time learning to use a treadle with a boat shuttle, so I've been keeping my eye out for a likely non-shuttle candidate, and finally found one on CL. We went to pick it up this weekend, and I've since spent the last few days cleaning 90 years of grime off the head, and 90 years of polish and wax off the table. Cosmetically they've both seen better days, but I'm *amazed* at how quiet it is! Now I'm just waiting for the bobbin slide plate and treadle belt to get here, so I can start using it!

    Now she just needs a name!

    She looks AMAZING!!!!!! Which products did you use for machine and also for the table. I'm getting ready to do a treadle table, too.

    Check out this video, by Treadle Lady:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/TreadleL.../6/Fi8a_OHUv1M

    In the video she shows how to set up that same model sewing machine and she also explains how to get the bobbin slide plate back on. She says that a lot of model 66's come with a missing bobbin plate because people can't figure out the right way to get them back on.

    She also has a couple of video showing how to fill a long bobbin and how to insert the shuttle into a machine.

    Thanks for the video! My bobbin plate has indeed gone missing, and I've ordered another one. I know from the manual they go on 'backwards', but it wasn't quite jelling in my head exactly how, so it's nice to have seen someone do it.

    The machine itself was already pretty clean. I used mineral oil (baby oil) to soak the rest of the grime off, but haven't done anything else. I need to get a black paint pen (a la Billy-lostn51) and touch up a couple of spots of bare metal, then wax it, although I haven't decided with what yet. I'm open to suggestions, if anyone has any.

    The table was easy to do, but a lot of hard work. I started with hot water, Murphy's Oil soap, super fine steel wool, and elbow grease. It took several scrubbings, both with and against the grain, to get all the wax off. I like the oil soap because as long as you keep it wet, it'll keep softening the wax layers. I tend to use it on everything I'm rehabbing. After that I let it dry, then rubbed it down a couple of times with Howard's Restore-A-Finish in walnut. Let that dry, then I waxed it with Howard's Feed-N-Wax.

    I had considered scrubbing it down with TSP, which would have completely eaten the varnish finish, and then oiling the wood, but frankly, it's too hot to spend that much time outside! And the finish on this wasn't in too bad shape-the drawers are a bit alligatored, but that's about it. In the end, the restore-a-finish worked just fine.

    I have a case like yours for my 99K, however my case isn't pretty like yours is. Beautiful machine!

    Rotary is a round bobbin, and is stationary under the machine, spinning in a circular motion. Vibrating shuttle is a "long bobbin" (looks like a little barbell) that fits into a bullet looking shuttle that swings back and forth under the bed of the machine.
    Here's a link that explains Transverse, Vibrating and Rotary shuttles.
