    I'm hoping all is in tact with the wiring. Looks great from the photos. Anyhow, the seller said is in excellent working condition, minus the belt issue. eBay has excellent customer protection if the seller is fibbing.

    Check sew classic for the belt.

    GroovyEyeDesignes,

    I "had" a 185J. Bought it from a QB member down south of me. Then after servicing it my wife tried it and said: "It's mine, I'm gonna keep it." Well, so much for that.

    You can use a 193077 belt. That's what I put on mine.

    Awesome to know, Joe. Sorry it was "kidnapped" from you. haha

    I ended up getting a 196386 belt for it. That's what I was advised to do through 5 different sites.

    I think 193077 and 196386 are very close in size. I have a grab bag of new and used spare belts so when I get a machine that needs one I see what I have that fits then go from there.

    As long as you got a belt that gives you room to adjust the tension, it's good to go.

    Wow, wish I lived close enough to buy this one. Alas, it's a 2 day drive. The price is decent, too. Made about 1889!

    Oh no. It is not a bargain, but it is not unreasonable at all. Great machine. ZERO adjustments other than stitch length. There IS NO tension adjustments on those at all. And they are virtually silent.

    The company that produced them for W&G used to make clocks, so their sense of "tolerances" was much finer than any other maker of the the day. They set the quality standard.

    (P.S. This model was made from the 1870's until the late 1950's early 60's. Longest production run ever)

    Jim,
    No problem, I can tilt my head over. That's a nice little machine. Once it's all cleaned and oiled I'll be it sews up a storm.

    SteveH, you are dangerous! I have our family's old Hoosier cabinet as my sewing center. Using photo corner tabs I have begun to display favorite pics. These would be perfect!!! Had no idea such things could still be found.

    I've picked up few for Singer, New Home and Davis. Sometimes they depict machine embroidery done by their machines. Those are amazing!

    I love the old iron and wood machines. They're solid and reliable.
