    here is a picture of one I have been working on for my daughter ( I have posted it elsewhere but since this is a picture thread I though it might belong here for reference. the machine is a I think about a 1923 model 128 La Vincedore (sp?) decals and the cabinet is a much more recent... originally housed a 99 machine has been cleaned and polished but the cabinet is in work.

    Yes it's a 128 La Vencendora.That cabinet looks very short. Is it all there or does it have removable legs?

    the legs just screw on the bottom not really meant to be removable per se, but it does not fit in the jeep other wise.... was sanding and oiling them separately, they are nothing special just turned round legs. makes me think about 1950's or later on the cabinet. I worded that last post poorly. I new it was a 128, just can not remember the date... looked it up once thought "cool" to myself and promptly forgot.

    Makes me wonder how widespread and common that catch phrase was. one of the episodes of "Star Trek" ( the original television series ) was titled "The trouble with TRIBBLES" One wonders if it was coincidental or if it was a play on something the writers parents may ave said .... or if it was maybe even a common colloquialism at one point.
    Not serious. Just a Star Trek joke.

    My daughter just got a 127 Sphinx and I serviced it while in Illinois. A delightful machine. Works great, needed a little grease and oil It has side clamp attachments and 15 X1 needles, just like a modern machine. I put a new belt on her treadle and it works fine. I don''t care for shuttle machines, but this one is fine so far. That is the only archaic thing about it..

    I never used to like the long bobbin machines either but the more I use one the better I like them - give it a chance.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    The shuttle machines only do one thing .. sew a nice stitch and only forward, but they do that OH SO WELL. Mine ( a 27 and several 128's) even handle really heavy thread better than my newer machines. I have gotten to where I almost prefer my long bobbin ladies to some of the newer stuff I have. just be sure not to try to go backwards with the treadle....they really hate that.

    I do find the thread size can be a limiting factor on the long bobbin. If the thread is too heavy it won't go through the needle hole.

    That's a model 12 with transverse shuttle. VS shuttles go front to back.

    You might have trouble finding needles for it. They take 12x1 which haven't been made for a while.

    I hate to sound totally dumb here, but what is different that makes it "transverse"? I don't have any idea what that means, really..............I did find some needles on line that "say" they are the 12x1 ....guess I will find that out, whenever I can get it going........it is pretty and its a really nice cabinet too..............
    .I have a foot pedal that is from 1904 and I have had fun sewing on it.......it there something different between a tredle (sp??) and a shuttle machine or is that just another name for the pedal ones?.i have a lot to learn....I have the bullet bobbins on that one from 1904 and the one from 1919...wish the sidewinder bobbin winder would work for those too...........

    Transverse is where the shuttle moves left - right, VS machines are front - back. 12x1 is the needle type, small round shank needles (no flat).

    Treadle is what you think of as a pedal and is how the machine is powered. Shuttle refers to the bobbin carrier, nothing to do with the method of powering the machine.

    You really need Google: Ask it anything like this and you'll have a library within seconds.

    "Bullet Bobbins" are shuttle's...... the Bullet is the shuttle, te long round thing the thread winds around is the bobbin,
    VS is and abbreviation of "Vibrating Shuttle" the "standard" VS machine swings the shuttle front to back ( front being where you sit, back being the side towards wall .... Transverse machine the Shuttle goes left to right ( end where the hand wheel is being right, and end where the needle is being left )

    Found this in a local antique shop. I won't be buying it unless the price comes down a bit. The machine has the same name as my large munsterlander Freyja.

    Here are a few of mine. These are the machines that are close by so that I could take pics of them.

    This is a Singer 128~serial # 10886656~date-1892. This uses a vibrating shuttle rather for a bobbin. I am in the process of cleaning it so some of the pieces are off of it, right now. I bought this machine in a local thrift shop. I don't know what the decals are called but they sure are pretty.

    This is my little white FW-221. It arrived yesterday with it's spool pin snapped off :-(, but it came with the cutest little oil can! . I don't know the year it was manufactured but it was probably mid 1960's.
    Attachment 212696

    This is a Singer model 66 with the 'Red Eye' or 'Red Head' decals. Serial # G6969592~manufactured in 1919. I have several red eyes and it was my first vintage machine and started the ball rolling for me!
    Attachment 212697
    You can find out about the decals on ismac.net. If you type in the digits in the second or third column (can't quite remember off the top of my head) into the search engine on the actual site (maybe even in Google) it comes up with a comprehensive list of the various decals and the dates they were used. I'm a complete newbie but finding out this kind of stuff fascinates me. Excuse me if the info is already in the thread. I'm just ploughing my way through it.

    Sheilz, Your Singer 128, White FW and your Singer 66 Red Eye are absolutely beautiful. As far as the spool pin is concerned, Sew Classic has them for an inexpensive price, available online at sew_classic.com! I think you'd be able to get them very reasonable (about $ .65 each) plus shipping, etc. That's a good price! They're tap-in! The decals on your 128 and 66 are absolutely pristine! Wonderful!

    Here is the machine I just brought home last night for $50. It is in pristine condition, oiled, lubed and ready to sew. And, not a scratch on it. I am tickled pink! It is a Kenmore 158-10301 manufactured in 1970-1971. I love it.
