    That is one pretty White. The decals are nearly perfect.

    I think I’ve seen one like it before, but I can’t remember where.

    It’s not from a Chrysler Kenmore 120.xxx machine is it? My 120.491 is buried so deep in storage that I can’t get to it easily to check it.

    I'm having exactly the same problem! I'm wondering though if I came by the one I saw in the same way Steve did and didn't identify it

    ETA: I keep rolling back to a national machine I once had here but I could swear that bobbin case looked even more different still.

    Yes, I know what it fits, it's a rather uncommon one - but not an uncommon company. I was looking for a picture and could not find one so I'll grab my camera and go take one.

    Besides, I have to go put the bobbin case back too!

    OK - here it is. This is an early New Home rotary machine.



    the back is different, but I believe that is just an age thing - this one is an older style.









    This is a later New Home - before Free took control. This one is very similar to the Singer 15 and takes taht style bobbin case.



    This one is from after Free too control, and it takes the same bobbin case as other Free rotary machines of that era.



    I only have a newer National Rotary, and while the bobbin case is sort of similar, the big difference is the bobbin has a rather large hole in the middle.

    I won't be getting my early National Rotary until later the spring, but we could have Joe go look at teh bobbin case to see what it looks like. (that is the Damascus Grand).

    in fact it does. Along with a "Household" branded bed hemmer, and a few other assorted things that were NOT for the White VS1 that they came with.

    I will post a shot tonight or tomorrow of the other "free to good home" stuff

    hehehe! I keep getting closer to deciding that really nice, old set of White attachments may need to head west. I think it belongs to a White VS1 machine anyway. This is the one that the box says "White is King" on the front. I kind of hate to part with it, but I do need to stay focused and NOT start collecting the really old stuff.



    Maybe I'll get motivated to go through my boxes this weekend - I've got to get the stuff for Jon packed up too -

    I forgot to share this yesterday. I went to Niles, CA on Saturday to prowl the antique shops. I found another cool 1895 Oilier (I have 4 now, and am collecting enough for each machine to have one) but then I found this beastie. (sitting next to the standard sized oilier i had just found)

    once I unclipped it (the clip is missing from the other side) and removed the cover, I discovered this!

    And Household - I bet this lady wouldn't mind some new attire!




    Though I don't want to be greedy if someone else out there has a Household. I love the fancy scrollwork on the top tension!

    cathy those attachments will fit a white vs2 , I don't have a VS 1 I did get a vs 3 and a few fr's. I have a feeling if you remove the top clamp adapter they won't fit all those

    I'm not sure what my Whites all are, but so far the bar and location of the needle hole are all the same. If the VS1 is the one with the boat shuttle, that is the one I don't have (and keep telling myself I don't want to get).

    The feet that fit the VS machines also fit the rotary. Of course the hemmer plates do not.

    Don't know if this is a VS2 or 3



    not sure if this is called a VS3 or something different.



    this one got pulled out of the attic from the house I grew up in.



    This one I got from SteveH



    And another rotary



    and this little cutie = have both the domestic and the white version



    This is one of my favorites - she'll get another repaint at some point.

    I've not checked the newer acquired ones, but a while back all White I owned (non side clamp) and the same diameter presser bar and same distance between bar and needle.



    So you put put adapters on or off, and use the other feet. I even have a few sets that came with different types of adapters before the top clamp became the popular style.

    And since I'm goofing off instead of getting my work done - here is the top of the old attachment box.

    Steve, can you measure the diameter of the presser bar, and the distance between it and the needle like I showed above?

    Also, does the needle appear to be centered in front of the presser bar?

    And last, can you measure the dimensions of the front slide, length and width.

    I really love the look of the White VS1 - I hope I never encounter one at an affordable price as I may not be able to walk away - and I don't want one for the collection LOL!!
